    Re: TJ Yeldon is a pleasant surprise

    I thought Yeldon would be a contributor, but, wow. For me I'd have to say he's been way beyond a pleasant surprise. I think he's been nothing short of sensational.

    Re: TJ Yeldon is a pleasant surprise

    Read an article the other day that if Bama gets all the running back recruits it's after this year we could rotate FIVE running backs next year. The article said that all the RB recruits are aware that they won't be a feature back and they're all ok with it.

    Yeldon>Lacey. I worry not starting Lacey could cost us in a game. He always finds yardage in well defensed plays.

    Lacy will start. He makes our plans fit. I saw Eddie, "Ed" if you're Desmond, Lacy do well in this game. We just went away from him and TJ.

    Re: TJ Yeldon is a pleasant surprise

    Yeldon is a huge pleasure to watch. He hardly ever gets stuffed. He is not primarily a battering ram, or a juker, he doesn't rely on exceptional speed or burst, he is not particularly small and elusive. He has an upright stance that gives the impression of simple north-south running. Yet he always seems to be in the best lane, he doesn't waste energy on sharp directional changes because he threads defenders so well. When the tackle is inevitable he chooses the best way to dive for an extra 2 yards. He is incredibly efficient and, as a true freshman, his upside potential is just staggering.

    All that, and he has good hands, is becoming a decent blocker, and is as cool as a cucumber. And the fumble yesterday was more AJs fault than TJs.

    I'm not convinced that Lacy is 100% healthy yet. This slight tendency towards fragility, probably exacerbated by his spin move, may limit his draft desirability. But for Alabama at the college level, Lacy has been fantastic.

    Yep and then he tweaks the ankle. I think we'll see both RBs against A&M, but if I had to guess, TJ gets more carries because I think EL will be a bit sore.

    I just love circle button though. Although he rather spin off, he'll truck you all the same.

    Re: TJ Yeldon is a pleasant surprise

    by pleasant surprise do you mean he made me scream uncontrollably for 3 minutes after that TD. Pleasant isn't quite the word I'd use, shocking or game changing is closer.

    Remember when Julio made a big play in death valley to spark our win there in 08, and then in 09? That puts TJ in some pretty big company.

    I didn't want to go overboard. It would seem a bit premature. I could have titled a bit better, but anything pleasant makes me smile.

    T.J. season is why there are still a lot of butthurt Auburn fans. Nonetheless, this man-beast is gonna be Ladainian Tomlinson esque for Bama.

    I love TJ regardless. Even when it looks like there is only a yard or two he turns it into 5 or 10. He is lightning fast and is so quick to find the hole even if he has to redirect. The fact that he spurned Auburn at the last minute makes him that much better.

    On his touchdown, he did a little juke move and it was just enough to cause the defender to fall. Perfect.
