    Somebody damn sure needs to focus on special teams. Start with how to rush the punter 101 and then we can move on to more advanced topics like you can field a punt or kickoff and believe it or not return the ball. Not sure why All SEC returner Toney wasnt given the opportunity to make any returns against Bama when we damn sure needed him to break one....and he would have with as many times as Bama kicked off. Sure I know Surtain dinged him pretty good but Etiene returns willingly for Clemson...points are points and you dont get any for calling a damn fair catch. For god sakes Urban would be having esophageal spasms watching our special teams....its like the Nussmeyer of special teams coaching.

    I doubt it is to do with their RB coach.

    He's not coming back. He left of his own volition because he didn't want to be a TE coach. Let it go, man.

    I think hitting holes and finding daylight is an inane ability. Emmit was doing it in hs and I doubt it was the coaching. Of course coaching helps but no one will ever be able to make Pirce see what Emmit and Barry saw. Your born with that brain much like Trask seeing the entire defense. Mullen can’t make Frank’s see it.

    I was there during the Emmitt years. Other RBs gained 0-3 yards and then Emmitt came in with great vision, cutting ability and balance and would gain 5 plus per carry. A great RB makes an OL look better.

    True but the OL has to create a bit of a gap to run through. I haven't studied game film to see if they were there for the taking and missed.

    That isn't on his own when he was asked to coach TEs when he's a RB coach. That's we don't have a place for you but you could fill in here for now.

    I agree... He's talking the "natural" ability out of the running backs hands and forcing them to run straight into a scrum versus looking to find daylight and running to it. He's taking the natural out of natural running backs' ability. He's forcing too much thinning and not letting players/running-backs react...

    Could be but Wright pops outside and Perine looked like he got better the two years under Knox. Pierce seems to be a physical runner with below avg vision. Pierce May be pretty good with a line that blocks though.

    Call it what you will; he's still not coming back. It's a tired old refrain at this point.

    Mullen got Drayton pushed out in 07. It’ll never happen. Meyer brought Drayton back once Mullen left
