Three Years of # 24
Posted on Dec 9, 2009 by Andrew Miller |
A quick glance at Knowshon’s numbers:
2008 – 250 carries, 1400 yards, 5.6 per carry, 16 tds, 107.7 yards per game
2007 – 248 carries, 1396 yards, 5.4 per carry, 14 tds, 102.6 yards per game
A quick glance at Washaun’s numbers:
2009 – 112 carries, 639 yards, 5.8 yards per carry, 3 tds, 79.9 yards per game
As a hypothetical, should we extrapolate Washaun’s 2009 numbers to 250 carries, this would be his line:
2009 (hypothetical) – 250 carries, 1450 yards, 5.8 yards per carry, 6 tds
Only two SEC running backs with a minimum of 100 carries, Dexter McCluster of Ole Miss and Mark Ingram of Alabama, averaged more rushing yards per carry in 2009 than Washaun’s 5.8 ypc.
Mark Ingram is considered to be the leading Heisman contender, and here is his 2009 line: 249 carries, 1542 yards, 6.2 yards per carry, 15 tds. Washaun’s extrapolated numbers would be in Ingram’s neighborhood. Is it too early to begin the Washaun Ealey for Heisman chatter?
Knowshon didn’t play with an offensive line laden with upper classmen like Washaun is going to have over his next couple of years (barring injury).
Knowshon had a knack for the end zone. Will Washaun develop that same knack?
Next year we will be breaking in a new (freshman) QB. If Washaun doesn’t average at least 20 carries per game (and Caleb 10) over the first half of the season, we still haven’t learned our lesson.
Washaun has stated that next year he is going to switch jerseys back to his old high school # 3. Kids, its time to dust off your old DJ Shockley jerseys, or start saving your lawn mowing money, because the # 3 is going to be one hot seller next year.
Who will dare wear the # 24 next year? The jersey will still be warm when someone slips it on.
Keep pushing that running game guys! Quoth Sammy Hagar as Van Halen lead..."you've got to run to win".
Good post about Washaun! I wonder, though, how you decide that Washaun should get 20 carries per game and Caleb should get 10? In the last three games of the season, Caleb's ypc average was HIGHER than Washaun's - and that was about when he started eating again, no? I think a 50/50 split like the Tech game was great to see. And Caleb seems to find the endzone more. Remember that most of the season, Caleb King was on a liquid diet. I think we're doing to see great things from #4 and #3 next year.
DawgFan, You bring up a fair point. Caleb really came on at the end of the year and he did show more of a knack for scoring than Washaun did. Although, had we handed the ball to the kid at the goal line of the UK game instead of calling an insane pitch play (and then blaming him for lack of execution) there is no doubt he would have scored another. I really won't mind if we see a 50/50 split so long as we commit to the run and both backs are playing at a high level. That said, I always prefer when one back gets a few more carries as I prefer the featured back system - I think it helps to get a rhythm going. If Caleb is the featured back because his play is better, that is fine. Let's just run the ball. Oh, and of course if we lose 5 games again next year a Heisman for Washaun, Caleb, AJ Green or any of our players would be unthinkable. It all starts with winning, of course.
Great post, Andrew. Ealy and Caleb are gonna be our bread and butter next year(hopefully). Keep up the goods work.
I say give #24 to Ken Malcome. It seems to be good luck for TB's.
If it would do any good just let all the running backs wear #24 next season!
Ealey and King with both be 1000+ yd. rushers next season, with about 15 - 20 pass plays a game from Aaron Murray to keep their D honest, and we are back to 10+ wins a season again. With Alec Ogletree coming, and possibly Da'rick Rogers (who may move to DB for earlier playing time and exposure) we should be back to the solid SEC powerhouse that our running game demands. No more turnovers. Discipline. Florida is going to be on a down 2 - 3 years, and Alabama is losing a lot of players too, so this is our chance to pounce. Lets get a DC who isn't afraid to blitz/fake blitz 15 times a game. Lets get back to the trench war that is BullDawg Football.
