Default Connor McLaurin out

He is our starting fullback and apparently "cracked his ankle" in practice. This is per Spurrier after practice. No link, sorry.

Looks like very few power run formations coming our way

I get the feeling that some people don' realize how important he is to our game. He has done a great job at picking up the blitz and blocking for Davis.

My thoughts exactly.

Spurrier has gone out of his way to praise him on a number of occasions.

Spurrier praising a fullback. Let that sink in and the importance of his role will as well.

power run will be somewhat ineffective against Wisconsin, they practice against on of the best OLs in football.

With one of our BEST blockers out (Mclaurin) Shaw's scramble and the pass is our best threat in this game.

Simply the fact that McLaurin has been a good fullback doesn't make it a huge loss. It's not a huge loss unless there's a big dropoff between him and the next fullback in line. IDK if that's the case. If it is a big dropoff, we'll probably see mostly shotgun this game. I didn't see Mike Davis having a big game anyways because Wisky has a stout run D and veteran front 7. Their secondary is their weakness and I think Spurrier is going to end up going pass heavy regardless of our fullback situation. Yes, McLaurin would be valuable in pass blocking in the I-form but we can pass just as well from the shotgun IMO. I can't necessarily say that for running the ball.

#1 FB: McLaurin - 12/12 games appeared in, 5 starts (not every game utilized a FB in it's base offense)

#2 FB: Gist - 1/12 games appeared in (Coastal), 0 starts



There's your big dropoff......

Plus the game is tommorrow......doubt there will be much time to give Garrison the lion's share of practice snaps now to help gear him up for Wisconsin. For that matter, doubt there's ANY time to prepare a B-plan for the game if we were planning on using a FB substantially versus Wisconsin. We're just going to have to wing it against a top-10 run defense and hope for the best. Although last year Michigan supposedly had a top-10 pass defense, and we threw all over them, so we'll see.....

This. We're not going to be able to really run it up the gut vs wisky anyway. Our best bet is to get those guys moving latterly, which is where we have the advantage.

Losing Byrd was about 10x more worrisome than Connor McLaurin.
