    Hopefully, we can use some of them in the return game.

    If we could get somewhat proficient with it, a suprise wishbone formation can be a devastating thing. Remember Ga State?

    I think we could come up with three backs to run it, and Jalen might not be a bad wishbone QB.

    Now you are talking. Mixing in some Veer/wishbone concepts with our QBs and RBs would be devastating. Player depth to run full time may be tough even for Bama, but situational would be awesome!

    Something else I have mentioned before, BJ can play DB pretty darn well too.

    Whether we would ever have this in the playbook is one thing, but you`d have a hard time convincing me that we don`t have the horses to run it.

    We've used veer concepts for a few years now. We really used them last year.

    Could be pretty tough to defend on a third down, and three or less :-)

    This is where I am saying, "play action pass is a TD!". On third down, and more than three, I am saying, "run the ball!"

    in his Unit ranking of the #1 Running Back Unit, Phil Steele projects Emmons as the #4 back. Notes that this is the first time in 7 years that Bama has not had to replace a RB that rushed for 875+ yards the previous year.

    It shows how deep and talented we are at the running back position.

    I actually think the X-Factor here is Bo. He's been so injury prone and I can't help but wonder if the coaches limit his touches. Then again, you can't save him for just big games.

    But just thinking out loud - say Bo is limited and Robinson is either redshirted or limited to special teams - the rotation becomes much easier to envision.

    Too many good receivers to limit the offense. The blocking scheme for the O'line would be another problem, plus kids love to play in a "Pro Style" offense. I'm sure most are just saying that because of our wealth of talented running backs.
    Our recruiting would drop dramatically if we went to that offense.
