    If he had cut outside he may have taken it to the house. :)

    Ya a seam appeared on his right side that if he had been able to hit, he would have been gone.

    He's an all purpose Badass.

    He also saw Frazier blocking him towards the sideline, so that's why he was thinking to go right. He needed another 0.1 off his 40 to get past the two defenders.

    TOTALLY agree. I believe we will see a KR for a TD this year and that is pretty exciting.

    Loving Lindsay so far this year. I hope the guy starts getting more carries.

    I hope Adkins stays the feature back. He is a more traditional runner and the combination between him and powell and lindsay could really be beneficial for us.

    Adkins is the all purpose back. Powell is the goal line, short yardage, bruiser. Lindsay is the crazy man where you have no idea what could happen on any play. The change of pace of the 3 and the fresh legs really kept UMass off balance all day, and to some extent the same can be said at hawaii.

    Agreed. I'd like to see Adkins as the feature bacj and bring Lindsay in to spell him for a few series and certain situations. Powell can come in in situations listed above. We also have to find carries for Carr and get him involved in the game plan. That guy has electric speed you can't keep on the sideline.

    I see a situation where the O has a long (9+ play) drive where Carr would be a home run hit because the D had been out there so long.

    if your drive has gone 9 plays, how big a home run could you really hit!?

    well, against Hawaii, we averaged an RCH over 4 yards per offensive play. assume we start on the 20, run 9 plays at 4.01 yards per, and we're on their 44 yard line. Shldr2Shldr's math works.

    Maybe the problem with CU football is that they're trying to hit home runs during a football game?

    It is a nice problem we have not had for many, many years. We had Speedy, but no one else to be a serious runner to give him a breather. It was 'Speedy in means run most of the time, Speedy out means pass play most of the time' situation.

    With Lindsay, you get the feeling that while he loves to run and carry the rock, I think he loves blocking and hitting someone else almost as much, if not more. Love this mans attitude.

    I think Lindsay will take one to the house on a return eventually. Hopefully this week, that would be nice. Love him as a player, he doesn't mess around, gets after it.
