Default David Williams: Redshirt or Play Him

With Wilds out for 3-4 weeks, and David Williams listed as 3rd string TB...

will Spurrier & Coach Sands try to keep Williams on the redshirt track or will they burn it by the time we get to Arky OR even play him vs UK?

Williams has been praised for having great running ability and very good burst/top end speed.

I know Carson is listed as 2nd string behind Davis. IMO, the issue(s) with Carson are being able to run/find the correct running lanes the O-Line creates, staying on his feet after the 1st contact from the defense, and ball security.

Davis is the workhorse, and a REALLY good one at that. But, he's going to need to be spelled at some point during games.

Anyone have any info on the Williams playing time situation?

GO COCKS!!

Default Re: David Williams: Redshirt or Play Him

I don't think Williams will be put in unless there's s problem or injury. Redshirt status means nothing more than the possibility of keeping a player for a 5th year if he doesn't play at any point during one of the 5 allowed to use eligibility. It gives a player a year to develop physically and mentally as well as learning the game. Williams seemed to me, from HS film to have excellent vision to go with his speed and cutting ability, and quick acceleration as well. He certainly needs time in our system to develop, but if the coaches think winning or losing a game will be affected by what he can likely do, he will probably play. If not, I doubt he will.

I'm excited to see Williams get some PT.. He just need to remember he is in college now so holding the ball high AND tight is a good idea.

I'm not saying he has had or will have fumble troubles, but just a good idea to do it.

Play him no doubt. Carson has north-south speed and no juking ability. There's got to be a reason Salley hasn't seen the field by now. Somebody's got to lighten the load on Davis.

Try to keep the redshirt on him if at all possible. Let's see what Carson and Salley can do in a game this coming weekend and go from there. Try to save Davis a little for the next game.

I agree. Dont burn the guys redshirt. Especially if he's just gonna be behind Davis and Wilds for another two years.

He should definitely play. If he is that good, which he is, he won't stick around for his 5th year anyway.

I think they need to let Carson play some to get over his confidence problem.
Coaches liked him 2 years ago. Having said that, if Williams helps us win, play him.

Default Re: David Williams: Redshirt or Play Him

I just hope we can get Carson the ball in space. We've tried a screen here or there but it's always been blown up. He tries to run up the middle but that doesn't work well for him. He's supposed to be quick and shifty, so I say we get him the ball in space and see if it becomes special.

Right now, I'm not convinced about him.

If we are to a point where Davis needs a rest....we can go with no back or go with Williams. I'm fine with it if he's ready.

Let's be honest....you have an RB that shows out you are lucky to keep them three years so go ahead and play the guy. If Mike has another year like it looks like he will this year in 2014 then he's gone and Wilds will be the guy and need a backup. Go ahead and get him the PT.

Perfect opportunity to see if Carson is going to be able to help this Team. I would not burn Williams RS unless Carson is not able to get it going against UK. We know Davis can play. With that said if Wilds is out longer than expected we have to bring in a viable second option. I hope Carson is that guy. With that said I am not 100% sure he is but I would find out against UK. I would also be curious if Williams can help in the ST area.
