Should Copeland be playing a little lighter?

I don't think it would kill the guy to play 10 lbs lighter

He would still be plenty big enough and might have a little more speed/agility as a guy with the ball in his hands if we look his way in the passing game

He's a fullback. His job is to block and get one or two yards if necessary. Why would you want him to lose weight? Plus he absolutely demolishes people.

I think he could stand to drop a little weight if he's gonna be getting the ball.

Think Vadal could really stand to drop some if he's gonna remain at tackle.

I think he looked plenty agile during that reception against Alabama

Not lighter, but less PT. We are too predictable with a fb in the game. We need to immulate Bama's "O" IMO. They have a power running game, but without a fb. Put an extra TE in the game or another receiver and give your qb more options in the passing game. Nothing wrong with having Copeland in there on short yardage situations, but it shouldn't be a part of our base offense. JMO.

10lbs wouldn't make a difference.

Only reason Bama didn't use a fullback this year is because he got injured and was out for the year (Jalston Fowler). I love our use of the fullback.

Did you know JC's first name is Javoddron?

Just say that out loud once. It's awesome... sci-fi super villain.

vadal was hurt leading up to the peach bowl. Missed some practices. That's the reason he put on some unwanted pounds. He will be fine come August.

Yet he had one of the longest receptions on the season.

Ok...1 play out of 800+ offensive snaps on the season justifies running the same style of offense.

No but ur talking about using him solely on short yardage,screams predictability dont you think.

He also scored 4tds. Prob should have rode him more in the red zone.
