Prob should have rode him more in the red zone.


I'd have loved for him to get a shot on 2nd or 3rd and short vs Clemson late. alas...

but it shouldn't be a part of our base offense


Teach Copeland how to catch in the offseason. just five yard dumpoffs would be good enough.

They have a power running game, but without a fb.


Their fb
(Fowler) was injured and out early in the year and I think he was their #3 leading rusher at that point.

What, you don't like a costly 15-yard penalty every game?

He's a fullback

Right

His job is to block and get one or two yards if necessary

He couldn't do that at 255?

He's already doing at at whatever weight he is now. Why change?

Lord forbid we run an equally balanced attack on offense that isn't predictable. What's wrong with rushing and passing for 215+ yards/game?

The offense can still be balanced from I-formation. You will be very disappointed because Cameron loves his fullbacks. He put guys like Lorenzo Neal and Le'Ron McClain in pro bowls.

Actually the coaches do want him to get leaner. He would be even better around 255-260. Which is also around the weight that NFL teams will want him to weigh

That's part of what got me thinking about it

I just don't see him having any shot at all in the NFL if he doesn't get leaner

And it would probably be better for his time at LSU as well

it's weird that you can't distinguish what was shitty about the "we need to immulate Bama" comment. "equally balanced attack on offense that isn't predictable" is a legitimate and well-reasoned perspective, but it has nothing to do with bama.

stop the bama-session.

His main focus needs to be not getting so many damn 15 yd penalties!

Yes however it he does not feel the need to give them the freaking football like Stud felt compelled to do last yr.

What's weird is that neither of you seem to realize that "immulate" is what's weird about that comment.

If you take away his penalties, where in the NC! The guy is a beast, but lighter and smarter would be better IMO!
