    oh yeah, Shaun Alexander.
    Since I am signing off I will post a video of someone other than the thread title But maybe there is a younger member that has never seen the footage of a freshman Alexander going a few yards shy of 300 against LSWho. Times have changed. Back then the philosophy was not about having 5 star players as much as coaching them up. This turned out to be half true but helped keep this guy on the bench until he was a junior, even after this performance. Do that today and you would not sign another Alexander.

    btw, I have a man crush on TJ.
    Yes he did! 291 to be exact. He was hot all night long and we rode that horse all the way to victory.

    And fowler (whom we missed last night) and hart

    Hoping for the best but trying to be realistic with Dee Hart. He has had two knee injuries as a freshman back to back, with one coming before the season and the other when it was just getting started the following year, on the other knee. Dee could be injury prone at this level, with his size and what he has to get the yardage.
    I am still skeptical about Hart coming back into the roll as a small quick cutting RB, maybe the slot receiver would be better?.

    I would say the chances of Hart being able to come back with both of his knees now effected and beat out the best collection of RB's that I can remember on one team next fall fall to gain playing time will be difficult and nearly a miracle.

    Fowler (to unique to grade)
    TJ Yeldon (#2 RB)
    Drake (#13 RB)
    Henry (#3 athlete - might take the Folwer Role?)
    Tenpenny (#4 RB)
    Jones (#13 RB)

    And Jones might be the best of the bunch out of Atlanta.
