Easily, the most exciting thing about next football season is the incredible amount of nasty firepower we can bring out of the backfield. A quick and incomplete rundown of our personnel:
(whom I personally saw drag VT players all over the field)
(ACC Player of the Year, and the greatest runningback in the state)
I still want to hug him every time I see him around campus, simply because of the UGA game)
(fast as lightning, and apparently learned how to catch the ball at the bowl game that won't be named)
(the fairly beastly runningback from Louisville)
(as DRich once put, a straight up gangsta)
(played like a maestro at points last season)A discussion over at StingTalk
points out something pretty interesting about Allen's recent interview with Heather Dinich.
Of course, AA had a ton of time to learn all of the positions... but what if Nesbitt spends a little time at A-Back, even if only at practice? Not only will his reads improve, but what on earth does a defense do when it sees Lucas Cox at B-Back with Dwyer and Nesbitt at A-Back? Having Nesbitt throw out of a sweep play to Dwyer, Hill, or our favorite Demaryius Thomas, and we are seeing some exciting things happen with a scheme that most people write off as a football system of yore. Of course, I'm probably just talking crazy talk, but then again, we did see a pass to a lineman during our biggest game of the year, so I am not writing anything off.
Regardless, good things on our horizon, and Spring practice starts 3 weeks from today. Football has almost returned, even if it is only for a little while.
