Trick question ! Harold joiner 

Realistically: DJ Williams. IMO, he looks the best out of all of them. However, he was going against 2nd and 3rd string. I think people will be in for a rude awakening when they see how different it will be to consistently get carries against teams best players.

If he's capable of hitting hot read slants/curls in RPO after a zone read/inverted veer decision then there's no reason for him not to get several series at QB.

Mix it up between our normal offense and Wildcat looks.  Have Williams in at RB.

If we cut out the slow developing plays where our OL/TE/HB is supposed to hold a block for too long it'd do wonders as well.

I am going out on a limb, but if we are to compete against the big 3, we need to start fine tuning this aspect of the offense for two reasons.  To force them to practice for it and for us to dominate in it.  We have to protect our weakness which we all know is the o-line.  Joey needs reps now if he is gonna be a big game asset later this season.

this is the time to unleash this package.

In a word...creativity...find different ways to run with different players. Be CREATIVE. We have clear and obvious tendencies so give looks that the opposing team hasn’t seen on film.

That would be truly impressive if he backed up himself.

I don’t even like to predict anything anymore. I look forward to seeing it fold out and I don’t have any preferences. But I would like to see DJ develop into a stud. I just can’t predict he will.

Joey g may get a few series. We’ll see. Joiner can run up between tackles. I would like to see Worm carry 10 plus.

I agree, but didn't we have backup O-Line in as well?

Not that I take "Press Conference Gus" that seriously but didn't he already say DJ would finally get some real work?

Yeah, I should've done a better job of that.  I think you're right though with your line of thinking.

No offense to Boobee 😏 but honestly him being out makes the upcoming Arky game a bit more intriguing. I'm genuinely VERY curious how the run game will look.

Now, if Brahms would only get healthy so that they can sit my Mancrush down :sad2: and give NB an opportunity...

i bet gus starts out playing it safe. does anyone think he would play kmart and malik to throw others off if arkie is as bad as they seem? personally i hope worm gets out of the doghouse and runs wild with that speed. but i want to see dj as well.

We have already seen that Kmart is not the go to guy, so please let DJ, HJ, and WormJ I mean Worm get a bunch of carries. I hope to high heaven that somebody qualified is working with Bo on his footwork and throwing, also our receivers on route running. I have given up on our o line.

I doubt we see much of HJ or Shivers.  Neither appear to have what it takes to be RB2 at the moment.

Sounds like Gus has begrudgingly taken HJ  away from his critical one-wheel-route-evrry-other-game role and is repping him at RB. 

I just feel sorry for whoever only gets to run wheel routes now. Hey, maybe it will be Worm. Better than what he's been getting.

On the real though, I'd like to see some HB Wheel routes mixed in here and there.

Got to respectfully disagree. I think Gus has not given them enough playing time to find out.

Maybe Miller? He's been shown to be the preferred passing down blocker and he's a decent pass catcher. But he's certainly not as fast as KMart or Worm.

I'm guessing KMart must be a liability on passing downs because he runs pretty well. I would guess he gets the start.

Hard to judge DJ. His carries in college have been limited to a quarter in a scrimmage against the 3's, and a Mississippi State squad phoning it in. Could be his coming out party but we'll see. If there ever a time to have to test out our options at Running Back, a bye week and against Arkansas isn't a bad one.
