    Why do people overreact because a rookie RB hasn't become Emmitt after 4 games?

    No to a redshirt, hypothetically, in reality or whatever.

    Jones was a 'nobody' this time last year. He had 23 carries and only about 80 yards through the first 2 months of last season. He's turning out just fine now.

    Taylor will get some carries to develop his game in the coming months. He shouldn't just be given the keys to the kingdom him because he's well known to the fanbase.

    As for Collins, he's had an impressive start but if you recall his recruitment, it had more than a few red flags all over it. He's going to see the best D he's faced by a mile next week which will offer a better insight into his potential.

    What are we supposed to be looking back on? :roll:

    As GATORAZ said, it's a little early to be evaluating how good they turned out to be.

    Agree with Burton getting hurt....I also don't think we should have Purifoy or VH3 returning kicks for the same reason.They both mean so much more to our great Def. Have already lost DE...cant afford any others

    It's amazing to me people follow football enough to post on these boards and still don't know the redshirt rules.

    He won't stay for 5 years, so RS is pointless. He will be 21 years old this month. He is not a kid.
    I personally, don't like Muschamp's style to run one RB 25+ carries, when we have others that can play. It will be a long season and I would rather Taylor have 20-30 carries on the season, so if he is forced into the rotation through injury.

    It's amazing to me that people who worry about players getting hurt are allowed to wear pants over their panties.
