    It's always a good day to be a Bobcat & Ragin' Cajun.

    I'm sure he's ready to issue some pain for last year's injury..

    I understand that he if healthy, could be the BEST RB in the Sunbelt hands down!

    I know he is good, but he might not be the best running back on his own team. Let's not crown him the 2nd coming of Elijah McGuire until we see a larger sample size. IE, 5 games is not enough to crown him yet. Remember he had 56 vs SLU, 84 vs Tulsa, -4 vs A&M, 107 vs ULM and 14 vs Idaho when he was then done for the year. Only in 3 of 5 games was he effective.

    I personally trust the ball in Trey Ragas hands right now. Who in those same games had

    61
    130
    93
    91
    78

    respectfully. He also went on to have 72, 17, 84, 132, 41 and 14 in the other games he played. Out side of not playing vs Ole Miss (Suspended), very little vs App in a who cares game and 17 vs stAte where we had to throw the ball all over the field because we were down by 31 at the half, Ragas is much more consistent.

    With these guys we have 2 big exceptional RBs.....through the course of a game the speed and power can deminish and by sharing time and not losing effectiveness, a constant top level performance is established....like our Calais option also!!!

    This a good problem to have, questioning whether he's even the best on our team versus in the Belt.
