regards to this interview. Two very highly rated RB recruits, yet not a single mention of either. Lot's of rumors, but no official word on either. Not sure exactly what it means, but it's no accident they are not mentioned here.

true that we have some talent at rb,

but does a coach ever say he doesn't have any talent at rb?.no knock on dabo or our rb's, just sayin.

I'm not so sure about that. It was the D line he was so hyped about last year!
I think we new they'd be pretty good but Dabo was very high on them. It appears he's singling out the RB's this year.

So you think that you have Dabo figured out do you, good luck with that and all the coach speak!!!

We have a large RB list, but if I was a betting man, and I'm not. But if I was, every dime I have would be put on Adam Choice if he makes it in the rotation this year. But I feel that I can promise everyone, that Choice will end up being the best pure RB that we have had in a many of years. To be exact, I think that we would have to go all the way back to the 80s since we have had a RB that Adam Choice is going to be for us. The Dude is going to be the yard man we have been after for years. Even better than what folks think that Dye is going to be.

I really love a lot of the guys that I was on campus with in the 80's, Kenny Flowers, Terrance Flagler, Terry Allen, Stacy Driver, Tracy Johnson, Chris Lancaster and a few others that were stuck behind the guys mentioned, but Adam Choice is simply going to have show us that he is better than CJ Spiller... All other backs can't say a word or have a word spoken for them over CJ, they just gotta do it!!

I totally agree. Especially with Tyshone Dye injured. Choice is a stud. The rest have yet to prove themselves, and as yet haven't done so. Choice is the choice.

Without a physical offensive line that can block for them it won't matter. Do we have that? I'm not sure.


Slumdog... you sir, are a dumbas$.

An uninformed certified coot. OLine will be a strength this year and Gillman, choice, dye and brooks were all top 20 @ their positions.... but unranked Davidson and Fleming may be our two best when all's said and done. Go back to fgf or pay better attention to our team b4 commenting.


Re: Slumdog... you sir, are a dumbas$.

Brilliant comment. It speaks for itself, reflects your level of intelligence and inability to communicate in an
intelligent fashion. And, OMG. here the stupid "coot" accusation again. It never ends with your type.

Is any one of them ranked in the top 20 nationally? Just wondering.


I don't care who it is but we need

2 guys that can lower their head and run THROUGH people.

You mean like Fleming?


Re: I don't care who it is but we need

Yup.


need RBs that can pass block, missed that since Ellington***

Hot rod was pretty good at it.

How about Kurt Fleming??? He's got to be more powerful than all of the guys mentioned! And runs a 4.4. Dabo must be keeping him hush hush. No way he can bench that cat.


Kurt Fleming will be used at FSU first


Posted: Apr 26, 2014 4:13 PM
 

He isn't even on the roster... HE IS A SECRET... SO IS JAY JAY MCCULLOUGH and DJ READER can also take snaps in the back field.

Our country won't go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won't be any America because some foreign soldiery will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race.

I can possibly see Fleming maybe being used some.


Posted: Apr 27, 2014 10:56 AM
 

Possibly short yardage situations, but I can't see him getting a significant number of carries. Between him and Jay Jay, if either are even used at all in those situations, I think it'll be McCullough. A couple of carries in the waning moments of a spring game is all we've seen of Fleming. He's been playing baseball for several years. He's still an unknown, I think, at this time.


Re: Kurt Fleming will be used at FSU first


Posted: Apr 29, 2014 11:05 PM
 

Is he as good as rumored?


Re: Kurt Fleming will be used at FSU first


Posted: Apr 29, 2014 11:07 PM
 

YouTube Clemson spring game and go to the 1hr40min and 2hr10min marks to see for yourself.


Re: Kurt Fleming will be used at FSU first


Posted: Apr 29, 2014 11:12 PM
 

The hype isn't real yet. Haven't really seen any examples of lateral agility. He does look like a freight train when he runs though. Literally any of our RBs could have popped off that 40+ Yarder in the spring game.


Re: New Story: Swinney excited about potential at running back this season

I've heard scuttlebutt about Fleming, a former pro baseball player. From what I hear he is huge, and has tremendous speed. Has anyone heard anything?


Re: New Story: Swinney excited about potential at running back this season


Posted: Apr 27, 2014 4:45 AM
 

A rotation of top running backs like LSU, quick strike capability of Oregon, offensive line like 'Bama, hard nosed defense like 'Bama. I'd say Dabo is dabbling with the perfect combination of all the best teams. This ought to be a good one. Haha lol

Sounds good to me.

I just can't see any way Dye is back by August


Posted: Apr 27, 2014 10:47 AM
 

He tore his Achilles. That's a year long recovery and they are expecting him back by August? August would be around SIX months, and no one way that's happening. If he truly tore his Achilles, he shouldn't ever see the field this season. To many times, we've had some guys rushed back from injury, to the detriment of a lot of those guys. Let him heal up completely. He's got great potential, and can be a great asset to this program in the future.


Swinney is on the record saying after Sept


Posted: Apr 27, 2014 11:28 AM
 

for Dye to return. That's at least how I remember it. I recall thinking there is almost no chance he is ready by the FSU game. Expect to see him maybe sometime in October.
