If Stevie can run like Ricky or Eddie (two Heisman Trophy Winners), we will have a legitimate chance at the National Championship. Goonies, if you are attempting to rip on Stevie, it doesn't make sense to use two examples of individuals that were voted the best players in the nation while they were in college. Stevie is what he is when healthy, a solid but unspectacular back who is very important for the success of this team. The real hope we have is for Harris or one of the frosh to step up because, if you recall, it wasn't until Scales seriously threatened him as a starter in 2004 (outrushing him at Baylor) that Stevie turned his game up a notch and scored all 5 of his rushing touchdowns during the final 6 weeks. ISU's record in that stretch 5-1. ISU's record last year when Stevie was able to play and lead the team in rushing - 5-0. To me, wins and losses are what truly matter.
He isn't Troy Davis, but we also don't need a 2,000 yard runner this year either, imo. If he can provide some quality minutes and have a decent backup, I think we'll do just fine in the running game. [/b][/quote]
What would Troy Davis have been able to do with the kind of teams we've had the last few years? Granted, he wouldn't be handed the ball on EVERY SINGLE DOWN because we have other options now. However, he would have a better core of players complimenting his game. He got the yards during his time even when EVERY team knew he would get the ball on every down. With a few more options and other players to defend, Davis could have broken some really huge runs with the players we have had recently.
