    Congrats on a good game! Good to see you get the carries and show us what you're capable of! Could have easily hit 100 tonight had we had a defense that could keep us in the game.

    He created a lot out of nothing during the first quarter imo.

    Too bad that's likely the last we'll see of him getting that kind of playing time.

    Looked decent on kickoffs as well. Was probably the only bright spot for me. He even got that 30-yard run called back.

    I thought he was going to go the distance on the one run,didn't see the speed or burst but he ran great. Had another 27 yarder called back for holding.

    He did fine out there, but he looked slow in space. Would liked to have seen Speedy.

    I don't think 2nd gear speed in the defensive backfield is that important for an RB. It's nice, but getting 5-7 yards consistently is much more important.

    I'm not seeing the extra gear from him either.. It was interesting the announcers said that the coaches moved him back a little from the line of scrimmage because he seems to have trouble with his vision.


    Scott has talent, it just hasn't come all together yet for him to be a big time back.. But he should defintely get the majority of carries on this team.. Playing will help a lot.

    CU would be a much better team if we had a problem of ALL our RBs getting chased down by linebackers 10+ yards down the field!!

    I think he would have cleared 150 yards if we hadn't been getting our asses handed to us and had to throw 55+ times.

    I think he is still getting his "feel" back. Once he is more comfortable I would not be surprised to see the burst of downfield speed show up.

    Some would say he was 4th team week one vs CSU.. :lol:


    Scott has some work to do to be a All-Big 12 player.. But he's one of the very few bright spots (or hope) that's on this team right now.

    I also noticed him put the smash on a couple of guys at the end of runs, he isn't afraid of contact and as he gets more comfortable some of those will turn into running over guys on the way to big runs.

    I still dont understand why he is returning kickoffs... He is a north south power runner, not an elusive slash and dash kick returner. I mean he is doing very well with the job, but it just doesnt seem like the best option.

    He looked great, he was even open for an easy touchdown if Cody didn't overthrow it to him. It's too bad he'll probably be gone this time next season. With his redshirt available I just don't see how he doesn't get out and head to greener pastures.

    He's not but the more time he's on the field the better.. I don't have a problem with it.

    He's returning kicks because he catches and holds onto the ball. Espy's returning punts for the same reason. Remember all the fumbles last year with J-fly? I have zero problem with Scott returning kicks. Give him the ****ing ball, anyway, anyhow.
