    How many SEC tackles has Cook or Lane broken? Cook weighs less than 200 lbs right now but you are already willing to say he is more talented and stronger than KT? Why the KT hate? It's not even close to objective anymore.

    I do get it. Kelvin knows they are going to use more than one RB. Stop trying to act like I am bashing him.

    I hope we get Cook but KT is one of the most talented backs we've had in awhile!

    I don't need to. You are doing it yourself. Read your posts. You are speaking more highly of a high school senior than our starting RB who just won SEC player of the week.

    You should stick to recruiting. If I recall, some here were calling for KT early on this season but you and orangeblue kept on with the 4th string can't block baloney!

    Could be the reason he thinks Cook is better now too...

    Selective memory Azz. You said he was 4th string behind showers and hern. You said he couldn't block and didn't deserve PT

    I have no hate for Kelvin I love the way he has stepped up it was objective. We have seen the kid play he needs to get stronger which I think he will. He is a freshmen in college. College players get stronger each year. Just like they understand the offense more each year. While Cook might not break tackle he is faster than Taylor. Each RB brings different attributes which is the reason we are using multiple backs right now.

    I think you would agree that Showers really helped last night with his perimeter runs

    looks like you have the selective memory I said at the time he was 4th string which he was. I also said he would eventually get the other things besides running the football down and would move up the depth chart. But you had a long argument about it with some other poster about him really being 4th string.

    Also when people were crying about burning his redshirt I said he is going to play later in the season. I said he will eventually get things down and an injury will happen. Now look at what happen

    There is no perfect player. He is not going to be great at everything. Taylor has great feet and vision and that is what gets him on the field. He doesn't have great speed but that is ok. He is going to be productive just like some of our other backs will. When we run plays to enhance their strengths

    I don't want to get between this pissing match (then I'd have pee on me) on who's better or who will break what records, but I will say this. From what we've seen of KT and Jones and Cook's tape, we may have 3 backs that each are exceptionally suited to specific roles on our O next year. KT's vision and acceleration allow him to be effective when teams stack the box on obvious running downs. Jones, although he seems like everyone's favorite punching bag right now, is a dominant pass blocker and has great hands. Two traits that make a great 3rd down back. Cook isn't huge and may not be a natural rb, but his burst is sick. Even if he isn't ready to come in and be the #2, he might be able to take over the Showers role and make an impact immediately. I'd love to see a wildcat with Taylor getting the ball w/ him as a jet option. He lacks speed and vision, but I'll take Brown as a 3rd rb. At least he runs hard.

    see now it is coming out you are still mad about your little fight with orangeblue. Some were calling for him early while Kelvins father was saying he needed to learn the playbook better and Muschamp was saying he needed to do some other things better. I said he would get better at those things and he would play.

    I've never seen Matt as anything more than an average SEC back. However, the guy has a skill set that would be very valuable to this team. The guy has exceptional hands. It won't happen, but I'd love to see him move to TE. He has the size. He would be a weapon.

    I wouldn't even consider Cook a commit right now. I think he ends up at FSU.
