    Agreed on Garmon looking thin. Hill physically looks the part of a B1G rb.

    Whoa. I must have watched a different program.
    I thought Hill looked tiny. Garmon is thin, but he has a large frame. He can muscle up.
    Hill looks like wegger without a high gear.

    Like I said, Garmon looks thin. He’s a heckuvan athlete though, could be scary when he fills that frame. Hill is kind of a bowling ball - more of a downhill runner than wegs. Not sure why he chose #3 I’m not going to be able to watch him without thinking of the Wegherbomb.

    I'll be expecting him to leap over the pile once we get to goal line situations.

    they say a lot by saying very little about bullock and rogers...i think hill will become the guy with bullock and/or garmon as change of pace guys.

    Re: My thoughts from Iowa's BTN Special Practice

    from what little i saw of the rbs on the btn special
    none of these guys look like greene/coker - so get over that wish
    rb #4 looks like a fumbler (carries the ball off the point and lower than he should)
    rb #3 carries the ball a like a tough runner - but looks small - but carries the ball like a rb should.
    did not see any vid of the other guys!

    Not many people in the Big ten are going to burn Torrey Campbell. He is a track sprinter and one of the fastest guys on the team.

    Really, Rick and the offensive line knew we were going to get it done. Nothing was going to stop us. You could’ve put 24 players out on defense and we were going to somehow get it done.”-DJK-

    Does anyone remember what they said about Mcall from a couple years ago?. It might be an interesting comparison.

    They liked McCall a lot immediately. He was more ready to play that either of these two frosh,but so it goes.

    Hill is 210lbs,at 6 dt,that is not small,that is solid. I think he looked like one of those backs who can squeeze thru small holes...ie, run small,but still be strong,a la A-Rob.
    It is not ideal,but I think I agree with Dinardo and Griffin that we will be ok at running back,if these guys stay healthy.

    Overall, I liked what I saw and heard. Receivers are going to surprise fans. D-Line might not overwhelm,but with numbers,should hang in there.
    If Vandy is as good as I think, this team could surprise.
    They will win 8 or more,imo.

    I am really confused. What I saw on the BTN show and the multiple "Get ready because these guys are awful" threads, doesnt make sense.

    Jon, the staff has mentioned that Tanner Miller will be the safety that will walk into the box, not the SS this year. Otherwise, good points.
