Three bigger issues than Running Back depth
Andre Williams hurt his ankle in BC's third scrimmage. Combined with Montel Harris's knee, BC's once deep backfield now becomes a major question mark. Most fans are trying to stave off panic. I remain worried about the season, but not about running back. We still have capable RBs in Finch and Boyd and Williams and Harris could both return in September. However, these three things still have me more worried as we prepare for the season.
1. The offensive line
It doesn't matter who runs the ball if no one can block for them. Nate Richman is hurting and now we are moving Spinney from Center to LG to replace him. I think this is a bad idea. I would rather see Spinney stay at Center -- where he's been solid. Given how bad our OLine has looked to start the past two seasons, I don't know who I can tru
2. Kevin Rogers running the offense.
Hard to believe but Rogers hasn't called plays since 2001. In that regard Tranquill was more relevant. I think Rogers will be an improvement but I do wonder how he will manage the offense and manage the clock. The season really depends on him and Rettig.
3. The defensive backfield
Injuries are forcing Spaz to mix things around. You also have to wonder how the offense is able to move the ball with such ease. If the defense is vulnerable in the passing game, this could hurt BC once the games count and we face go passers.
I want Williams and Harris back as soon as possible. But still (stupidly?) think we can still compete without either. The issue now is will these other units step up.
