Yeah, but he's still nursing that hamstring injury.

What does that mean?
Terrance Magee circa 2013.

In 13 Magee had 626 yds 8 TDS
In 14 Magee had 571 3 TDS

To me Magee looked more explosive and quicker. Remember he was Jermey Hills back up in 13. I think Magee and CEH are similar. Hell when I was looking up his stats I just saw his size and there pretty much the same too. I also think that this offense will utilize more CEH then the ‘13 offense utilized Magee in the passing game.

Magee: 5’9” 217lb
CEH: 5’8” 212lb

Agreed.

He’s just too soft to dominate in the SEC.

re: Who will emerge at the #1 Running back
I think this is correct although I believe Lil Fournette is better than people give him credit for. He's a great one cut guy and has some good power/balance. I think LSU should give this guy a shot this year.

I'm looking forward to these underrated guys. I think Provens will be more of a slash type of back. Someone you put in near the goaline to move around. If used correctly he could be very dangerous. A WR/RB like Josh Reed. He's a tough guy too. You could bring out all your big WRs and have Provens come out of the backfield on a delay play. Outrun any LB and out muscle any DB.

Then you could also put in all the big boys down by the goaline and have two WRs and two TEs all fake the block on PA and be wide open. That's why I like this Burrow guy, he makes the right reads even under pressure. I think this guy will change the game in 2018 for LSU, along with our group of talented WRs.

I would really like to see Steve E come out and fool the defense's when we're in the RZ instead of playing it safe. If you pass 50% of the time of more near the RZ, the draw or running plays would work so much more efficiently. Plus the players would love it. I would like to see more attacking the flats with our backs as well as our WRs. So many things you can do and mix up to fool a defense.

You should only rely on your kicker when all else fails and you've tried everything you can possibly try. I'm excited about our future. I don't see what everyone else does bc I know it doesn't take a team full of 5*s to have a kick arse team. Of course LSU still has plenty of those type of players also, which is why I just don't get how people can say this isn't a talented team. It now has some depth to go along with that talent and should make everyone extremely excited. GT

Probably Johnny HolStaff. For the first time in many years, LSU doesn’t have a stud running back. When was the last time we ask the question, Who will be the starting running back?

re: Who will emerge at the #1 Running back
This could be a blessing. I’d rather have 4 guys good for 450-600 than one really great back and a huge falloff, with this schedule.

Plus- we will be throwing the ball more than we are used to, most likely.

CEH looked the part in the spring game. I think we will see at least 3 backs split carries, but CEH will most likely be our go-to.

re: Who will emerge at the #1 Running back
Brossette will surprise all of you naysayers. When given the opportunity he has average 6.7 yards per carry. He just happened to be behind Fournette, Guise and Williams. A trio of backs that can be argued that if not the best trio in LSU history, not far behind. All in the NFL.

I believe Brossette started for his high school team as a freshman. He ran for a state record 8,705 yards and 137 TDs. He set a championship game record with 272 yards rushing on 37 carries and 3 TDS against Parkview Baptist. And he chose to stay home and attend LSU rather than Texas. Let’s not throw him in the garbage before he finally gets his opportunity. He is a born RB. He’ll do just fine.

re: Who will emerge at the #1 Running back
If he would show some toughness the fans would follow this guy to the end. When he runs he doesn't break many tackles and you don't see him trying to get extra yardage. The effort just hasn't been there when you see him on the field. He's been given chance after chance to get a first down or score TDs and he doesn't get it done. He's also fumbled on multiple occasions. I would love to see him take his game to another level but it's ultimately up to him. This is why fans aren't very excited about Brossette.

On the other hand when you see CEH running the ball, it's toughness and effort. He doesn't go down easily and fights for extra yards. That's the difference but both are great backs IMO. He just needs to give more effort is all.
