I just realized that Akers had 39 more carries that Homer and only 58 more yards, two fewer TDs. Homer averaged 5.9 yds per carry and Akers averaged 5.3. Homer is slept on by the media. Hope he balls out this year.
Akers has great vision and burst and was hard to tackle. I don't think he was a slouch at all. For a smaller back he runs hard.
Homer is tough as nails, fast, reliable and does every damn thing right! He doesn't look big (at least not last year) but he can wear down a D if fed enough.
Both are good but I'm going with homer.. for obvious reasons! FSU will get stomped by is this year. Dont think it should be close at all!! Last year we were 'finding ourselves '. This year we are on the verge of something special. They cant keep up with us. And their bozo coach will be exposed. Hes their AG!!
Akers is a stud no doubt but so too is Homer. I wouldn’t sleep on either one of them. Each has their forte and running ability, and both fit well into their offensive systems. No reason to think both won’t do exceptionally well this season
There was nothing Akers did last year to say he’s definitively better than Travis homer. It’s facts, Travis was the more efficient and productive player out of the two. It’s not like we had an elite group blocking in front of homer either.
