There are a few guys on every SEC team with that kind of speed, but few with the strength and smarts of this kid. He will be a star.

Almost every week last year our RB coach talked about rotation but it rarely happened. Does anyone know who actually makes the call as to which back goes in? Wouldn't a game plan include a rotation philosophy that was agreed to in advance by all?

I hope Walt is correct for once but yazoo's post was quoted for accuracy.

Davis 50-60%
Wilds 20-30%
Williams 10-20%

David is 6'1" 215...isn't that about right.
Let's see what spring practice looks like.
I'll be surprised if we don't average 150 rushing yards a game.

Our run blocking needs to improve. Our OL's ability to run block is the key to 2014. Connor Shaw was one of the few QBs I saw last year who could move his team down the field if the OL was not having a good day run blocking. This may have made the OL lazy on run calls. We had times on 4th and 1 when we could not hand off and get the 1st down. The offense was forced to let Connor get the short 1st downs.

Williams was about 215 when he got into school. I'm sure he is about 220-225 right now.

the breakdown of carries will be dictated by just how good that 3rd back is but i think the starter is getting 15-20 carries or 60% no matter what. also this comparison between bama and lsu in the past, they werent playing as many close games as us and they didnt have a running qb. spurrier is going to get his passing attempts. ideally assuming the qb rush attempts go down, the backs touch it more to keep us balanced.

i think coach sands stuck to the rotation he mentioned going into last season, which was in that 60-30 range with spot carries for a 3rd back.

of course none of us knows how things will play out...my post was more about Williams getting more reps than Carson did last year. I also think we were got hurt when Wilds went down because Davis was forced to get more carries and that was too hard on him physically.

Williams has really good speed, but what stood out to me in his HS tape was the vision. He set up runs really well an seemed to have that strong anticipatory sense of how to cut and vary speed based on a pretty clever mental picture of the field. Pretty hard to teach stuff. We'll have to see how that translates to SEC level and works against SEC defensive talent.

He will do more than plsy. He has the skill and work ethic to be number two behind MD28 next year. He is the future at RB. I don't think people realize how jaw dropping ly good David is
