Yeah... splitting time with other backs really hurt Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson.
Yeldon- 175 attempts for 1108 yards
Lacy- 204 attempts for 1322 yards
Richardson- 283 attempts for 1679 yards
Lacy- 95 attempts for 674 yards
Ingram- 271 attempts for 1658 yards
Richardson- 145 attempts for 751 yards
In the seasons Richardson and Ingram made the trip to New York they made the majority of the carries. If the carries are split next year like they were this year there is slim to none chance Yeldon or any other back from Alabama are in New York. I see no reason to believe Yeldon will make the majority of the carries considering Fowler should be back. Then throw in Drake, Henry, and possibly Hart (if he ever plays again), and I just don't see any running back from Alabama up for the Heisman. Now if for some reason Yeldon's numbers line up with what Ingram and Richardson did in '09 and '11, then yeah he might be in that position, but until then I don't see it.
