      Whehhhhhh.... great news! 06 Latsko offense coming.

      Kind of tells me we may not see much EJ though.

      Edit: after reading it, "some multiple tailback sets" mentioned. I dunno.

        Nothing subtle about it. Hope Mullen can keep the receiving corps happy until he's able to develop a passer for the 2019 season.

          Well. Technically they will be 3 RB backfields because everyone knows a mullinz QB just runs the ball.

            Those are defensive stats. It even says it clearly at the top of the material you quoted.

                      those stats are meaningless anyway...Mullen had a decent qb at MSU. If he passes as much here as he did at MSU with Franks running the show, we truly are hosed

                        He passed the ball less than Franks last year.

                        And the year before.

                        Dont believe the bullshyt you read on here hoping that Mullinz is something other than Mullinz. He is a known quantity for god's sake.

                          Except when he was passing the ball with Leak, or Tebow, or Prescott. He hasn't had a good passing QB the last two years so he used what he had and called plays to the strengths of the personnel. I mean, really, isn't this obvious yet? To add to that, isn't this what we have been clamoring for in a play caller???

                          To ME, that is the known quantity.

                          People like to say that but the last time Mullen as head coach had a QB that wasn't suited to run as a QB that good he passed it more than he did most years and didn't use a FB hardly at all. That was in 2012. That QB could actually pass the ball decent unlike Franks however.

                          My guess is once we get into SEC play you wont see Franks running the ball much and teams will force us to try to pass it more than we would like.

                          Unless Hevesy significantly improves the OL play we won't be a running power. I really hope Hevesy is a miracle worker because he does not have much to work with on the OL thanks to MooseDump and Butter's terrible recruiting... Mullen needs to sign 7 - 10 4 & 5 star OL this recruiting cycle.

                                The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
