    Kids from the Bronx don't dream of batting for the Colorado Rockies because it's a hitters park. It's odd when players don't want to rep their own neighborhood and state. But good for the kid for getting a scholarship.

    2020: Wisconsin has always had huge powerful linemen and I doubt that will ever change. GA would be smart to keep using the power run game.

    Is Wisconsin going to continue to run the same offense that they have been? Utah State ran a play every 16 seconds, usually out of some sort of spread formation. I don't think that will be an issue for Tolutau though. You can still use backs like Tulutau in that offense. A lot of people don't realize that the originators of the spread did it to take the defense from three levels to two and make it easier to run the football, not throw it all over the place. Utah state has recently had backs do exceptional things. Look at Turbin, "...a power back -- very physical with his running style, but he also has surprising speed and mobility."

    Congratulations on choosing a prestigious BCS power conference school. We would have liked you, but you'll probably get more playing time at Wisconsin as we're pretty loaded at running back right now. Gary Anderson is a great coach. Good luck!
