I was just thinking about this, and was expecting to see some RB offers go out
Cause biennemy is in over his head
And he can talk all he wants about who he has coached in the past. What has this team shown on the field that would convince a top RB that going to CU is going to be a good move for them on the field. Our offense has no identity and doesn't consistently use the running game, our OL has been much less than impressive.
I'm surprised that Davien Payne is redshirting. What gives? He certainly has the size to play now... maybe he just isn't that good (purely speculating)?
Heard Payne showed up a bit out of shape, but not entirely sure what the story is there. If he has not been impressive (not buying it), the lack of RB targets would be even more baffling.
Kind of wondering if the coaches really know what to do in this situation.
On the roster we have: Powell, Ford, and Payne who might be keepers. Jones isn't very good, Creer is meh, Crowder isn't going in the right direction, and Goodson is just a wasted scholly imo. Lindsay is pretty similar to Jones imo + an ACL injury.
Holy crap. Between the on-field performance and you guys' carping, I thank God there are no high cliffs nearby. I still hold out hope for the Panyne!/Pow! Wonder Twins future... maybe I'm just delusional.
we arent complaining about the players...its more about coaching and recruiting
Calling a player a wasted scholly= very low blow.
Creer was making a very good run against ASU when he took one of the uglier hits I've ever seen. He's not all the way back yet. His knee was destroyed. It's not fair to give up on him yet.
I truly thought CU / eb would be killing it on the recruiting RB trail. BIG disappointment!! The kids we have coming in are very average and a couple of them showing up on crutches?? Can not help that... I just expected to see more big bodied backs and fighting for a spot on our roster to be groomed for the nfl by scooter. Just like our season, big mystery
I think what's happened is that a lot of other schools have used negativity to dissuade players from picking CU. It's a lot easier for EB to connect with kids as the RB coach when there's an experienced offensive coordinator. It's a different story when he's the O-coordinator with no prior experience as a coordinator at any level. All the other schools have to tell kids is "EB is a great guy, but has no coordinator experience. Are you sure you want to take that risk?"
