Last year Malik stats...

53.9% 3,111 26-14

59.5% 3,000 25-8

Ohio_Cane

Homer: 16 carries 105 yards 1 TD
Lingard: 14 carries 125 yards 2 TD
Rosier: 3 carries 30 yards

Burns: 1 carry 9 yards
Perry: 1 carry 5 yards.

38 total for 299 yards 7.8 Per

The key is running the ball, I cant stress this enough. Malik needs to be in the best situations and when the defense gets us the ball, we owe them points, period. The 3 & out sh*t needs to end also, especially with ONLY Ford out there taking the brunt of the attack.

LSU, SSU, FIU, FSU, Duke,GT,Pitt Games for me in attendance looking forward to seeing the Canespace Family at those games.

U MF'N Right!!

Lingard will get PT, but I don't see Him beating out Homer & possibly Dallas.

I hear ya', but we can't go off the bar Rosier set. IMHO, the goal should be 60% or better for Rosier, Perry, & maybe Weldon...Williams I'll give a pass to because He's a true frosh.

CoCane

Every year some people think the elite incoming frosh are going to start over veterans.

News flash:

Most frosh are not developed enough to come from high school and beat out a talented veteran that has been honing their craft 1-3 years already.

It's possible but unlikely.

I don't expect Lingard, Pope, Hall etc to start next year. They all have a lot to learn.

Patience...

If there is a player who can beat the odds and start immediately, I think lingard is him. Dudes already got the size and world class speed, so given another 9 months he will be there physically.

He’s an EE and apparently a student of the game, so if expect him to have the mental aspects as well.

Go Canes!!

I expect Lingard and Jordan to start.

Think at running back you can be a game changer from day one. Jordan will start because we basically have no one else with his skill set at that position on our roster.

1mg of Epi

Besides, we know Richt isn’t shy about using freshmens. Young guys will still see significant burn, whether or not they’re on the field for the first play.

CoCane

Lingard is 6'0 190. He's big for HS, not college. He runs track. He's going to lose 5-10 lbs during track season and be around 190-195 by camp. Homer and Dallas will be over 200 lbs.

He will have to block and catch better then them.

The game will have really slowed down for Homer and Dallas. They will see the field so much faster.

If Homer and Dallas were scrubs, that's different. Those are very talented future NFL caliber RB.

Is it possible that Lingard can overcome those obstacles? Yeah... But it shouldn't be expected.

Remember how many thought Amari, N'Kosi and Thomas would start too.

Patience...

CoCane

Jordan has the best chance because only Irvin JR is there to compete with. Noodles and Lingard have to beat out proven beasts... ijs

CoCane

Lingard is fast but not world class. He's not an elite 100m, 200m sprinter. He runs hurdles. Homer is moving too. Dallas will be faster, is quicker and has hands good enough to be a WR.

Just chill...

Go Canes!!

Good points on Lingard Co.

Him being an EE will hopefully help him pack on some pounds before the fall.

He looks like a real difference maker.

CoCane

There's more to RB then being fast. I know Lingard is an elite talent but let's see if he can handle practicing against the most talent he's ever faced first.

Perspective and patience...

Yes. No matter who wins it, they just need to play smart and hit throws enough to matter. I dont think Malik will get there though unless we can run the damned ball consistantly. Ace Set, Power I, Spread Option, whatever. Getting this kid into 3rd 2 is critical. I think we've got some powerful and talented kids playing RB for us. If Homer played in that Wisconsin offense, I think he could put up numbers also. Im not asking for their level even, but with our talent level, can we get a "Coastal Dominant OL?"

His Royal Dudeness

CoCane,

Excellent posts my friend. I'd like to know your take on the OL. Ive found them to be unorganized at times & not physical at other times. It just kinda looks like a mess and Im not sure where the direction is going there. Cleary Donaldson has All America ability at guard. I like St. Louis vs the pass but against the run he's not a bully. Outside of that, I dont see a bunch of quality big body depth.

86Cane

Lingard will get PT, but I don't see Him beating out Homer & possibly Dallas.

Bet you $100 right now he starts from day 1.

Posted by: CoCane | January 17, 2018 at 04:47 PM

I’m def not qualified to decide whose speed is world class or not, whatever I’ve read on lingard highlited his track accomplishments. He does have talent in front of him... but whether he starts or not doesn’t really matter. Hopefully he’s able to get PT, would be nice to go into a game w a stable of quality backs.

Any qb obviously will benefit from a D paying attention to the ground game, but too often Rosiers problems were independent of that.

Go Canes!!

This is going to create a free for all and is a bad, bad idea:

ESPN: I spoke w/ an NCAA official this week who was “95% certain” transfers will soon be allowed to play immediately in basketball & football. Could be a one-time freebie, plus grad transfer option. So in theory, a student-athlete could play for three different schools w/o sitting out.

If a coach can jump without penalty a player should. It may cause some chaos but I’m all for giving the unpaid players as much leverage as possible/

Oui

AeroCane

Lingard is an elite talent! Homer is a good back but by no means better than good! Let's get real! Even if lingard doesn't start he will definitely take reps from Homer! Now DeeJay - that's a wonderful athlete we have! He could be great at RB, WR or defensive back!

AeroCane

And rosier should not start for us! He's just not the talent nor student of the game to be better than average (if that)
We need perry, Weldon or Williams to really step up

Herbieibis

Unless Homer gets hurt before the season starts Lingard ain’t starting and neither will Jordan. Only FR. To start for sure is Baxa. Maybe a FR. Lineman but that is highly doubtful.

Isn't this fun! Debating about football in January!

I agree it should be expanded, especially for things like a coach bolting

But coaches are now going to have to keep re-recruiting their own players year to year. That’s too much chaos.

The U was one of the first schools to offer a four year ride. Don’t see anything wrong with expecting some type of commitment in return.

Herbieibis

Soup it ain’t happening. Now even a seasoned vet like yourself knows that ain’t happening. Now The Herb will say this, as u now, on several occasions I ‘be stated on here that we need a bigger back, now if Lingard is at 210, I can see that happening. Jordan neither. I know Irvin is average at best but unless he gets busted for pot, he will start.

Now to EPI,
Just because Richt had Rosier throw a few bombs, don’t make him a good play caller and our OC needs his Ass up in the box where he can see what’s going on. We couldn’t run against good defenses and that’s where we need a bigger back, a sledge hammer if u will.
Why are we playing Savanna freaking State. What a waste of a weak end and a false sense of who u are. Don’t bother texting that all teams do it, we shouldn’t and the NCAA ought to ban D-1 from playing those teams.

@ UVA
@ BC
@ GT
Vs UNC

These are the games we should win on paper. They're also the type of games Richt has been known to lose.

LSU
Vs FSU
@ VT

Big time match ups that will prove if we have become elite or not.

SVst
@ Toledo
Vs Duke
Vs FIU
Vs Pitt

Games we have no business losing...

CoCane

Homer was a soph. Dallas was a frosh.

They will be better with another off season of development. To expect a frosh RB that is smaller then them, hasn't even had 1 college practice yet, to start over them is jumping the gun...

CoCane

Dudeness,

The OL is wait and see. We're about to know for sure how good or bad they're being coached up.

Herbieibis

With our new additions at Rb, maybe Dallas moves to another position. Kid can play, don’t see us wasting him on 4 plays a game.

Herbieibis

If we can’t beat LSU, we will have big problems next year. They only have 4 offensive starters back and 6 on defense. Their starting Qb is gone. Here is finally a chance for us to stop our greenhorn jinx, where these out of no where qb’s eat us for breakfast.

This Palm Beach Central HS coach sounds like he wants to blow Nick Saban:

If there are FOUR games you think we should win but you believe that your HEAD COACH could lose then you have NO faith in our head coach!

“Start” is a meaningless term nowadays. I’d be surprised if all the backs aren’t getting snaps, regardless of whose in for the first one.

Whoa there bud! Richt thus far has been a pretty bad playcaller much of the time. I was just saying he isn’t scared to air it out.

EPI,
Gotcha! No, he wil throw a bomb.
