Who do you guys think will emerge the "top back" coming out of spring? IMO I see Marlin Lane as a Tomlinson-type running back. Someone who is better as a blocker and to pass to out of the backfield. I'm thinking that maybe one of our new talents will come in and steal the spotlight. Bourque would be my guess do to his size and speed. I see Alden Hill as a goal line and short yardage situation back. Just wanted to get a discussion going and hear some of your guys' thoughts.
I would love it if they had Neal at the rb position. I know he had fumbling issues early in the year, but IMO he is one of the most athletic guys on the team. I believe he was the fastest player on the team last year. He was a pretty highly recruited guy out of high school as a running back and looks more physically ready to play the position than Lane, IMO. With Hunter, D. Rogers, Croom, Patterson, Pig, Bowles, etc. I really don't see the point in him staying at receiver unless we have injury issues and need him. Let one of your most athletic guys play the position he was recruited for and is more comfortable at.

I hope Bourque is big time because we all know UT belongs with a big time Back...anything else is unacceptable
I really like Watson and everything I read he's something special. He can flat out run and he seems like a real good young man. I think Bourque will also be a good one. Only if AND I say only if the line blocks and I really believe they will this year
Ive been looking for the story all morning put it up already lol
For some reason Neal completely slipped my mind. I'm gonna pull a "Will West" and say, "Ahhhhh, yeah well I couldn't agree more." He's a terrific athlete and I've heard he's one of the fastest guys on the team. I'd like to see him back there as well. And thanks for the input Wes and I'll be looking forward to the story!
Marlin Lane is going to have a huge year
