    Dude is RAW. Should be getting more touches in the very near future, TN. We have not seen feet that quick with the power and explosion in one player for a while and maybe ever (I did say maybe for all the cockroaches who will say he’s only played in a few games). Go Gators.

    Seriously. This kid has that “it” factor and ability or vision to make big plays with his feet. What if he is an Emmitt Smith or Herschel Walker type back? Coaches need to give him more reps earlier in games and see what they really have. Emmitt went in during his freshman year for Bama game and never went out again. Could be same thing with Pierce. He did break all the Georgia HS records of Walker, so may not be hyperbole here.

    He does look good. Not sure how much of a grasp he has on the offense.therrs more to it than running the ball. I’m sure the coaches are just as aware as we are. He needs to study hard

    Be nice to see him get 16-18 carries between the tackles open the outside for Toney on sweeps, then play action deep.

    Think we all feel he needs more plays, he's gonna be something to watch in the coming years. He doesn't play around much, just full bore right out of the gate.

    I don't know about this guy; 80% of his carries went for less than his average for the day. :D

    Go GATORS!

    Herschel records stood for 40 years... ...4-0!!! This dude is a beast. Save all the "coaches see practice....know more than us etc"....We didn't play Emmit the 1st 2 games either and I'm sure Darnell regretted that one too. I don't care if he doesn't know the offense or blocking schemes yet either. Give. Him. The ball.
