why get pissed at 18 yr old kids staying home, Miami is ok at rb and richt had a habit of landing great rb's so I am not worried, with Walton, homer, burns, gray they are ok at rb not exactly desolate, I know Walton probably turns pro after next season but this team will find rb's

south florida is filled with them,

If Walton and Homer stay healthy, we're more than OK. If either gets injured, we're in trouble. Would probably have to look at moving players from other positions.

The depth chart is not what it should be at RB U (absent adding someone else late in the game).

Or the staff can do its job and find another RB for the 2017 class.

Exactly. We can make all the excuses we want, but nobody knows better than Richt that QUALITY depth, IN SIZE AND SPEED, are an absolute to get to the next level. You don't improve the OL just to chuck and duck. We will definitely be moving toward a dual threat type QB like the rest of the college football world it appears, but a RB stable at UM of thoroughbreds will always be the standard we need to keep up. 2018 BIG BIG BIG

I keep telling yawl you have to scream loudest for your own. Zaquandre White Ft.Myers and Devan Barrett Tampa you didn't rate very high but both FSU and AU did and they are getting some very good RB's. I fault you guys for always running with the popular vote. Stop being sheep! And you bash Larry Blue like he fell off or something... Blue aint fell off you did. I saw the rant yesterday and today you see why Blue didn't run with BS. He been in the game to long and these young cats will soon learn what he already knows!

There were some good in-state RBs we ignored. Fireable offense.

How are we okay at Running Back?

We have only one player that received any playing time at the college level and that is Walton. We all love Walton but given his size and he the fact that he disappeared in many big games I don't like the idea of putting all our eggs in one basket. Can Gus Edwards change his mind or is he that scared of Homer?

What the hell are you talking about? The threads on the recruiting sites are nothing but why are we chasing out of state running backs (McFarland) when outr 3-4 good RB are better than the nations 4-5 star elites. White and Barrett can ball!!!

I agree 100%. And hell nawl Gus aint staying. This is one of the things Moro saw coming but got labeled as a "troll" for pointing out how the RB situation was being mismanaged.

Yeah, because they could afford to.... As you see today you were doing a half azz just recruiting the RB position in state. FSU recruited McFarland but they didn't make him the #1 priority. So FSU get's the top 5* RB out of MS and Top Star RB out of Florida. Hell they set!!! And U still think you are good at the RB position going forward after putting all your eggs in on McFarland?

this is the kids future, I'm 43 I don't have time to get mad at 18 yr old kids for where the choose to go to college, Miami will be fine at rb, burns despite his injury history is a stud when he is healthy, gray should be a factor this year along with Walton and homer, plus Miami can move others there if need to like dj dallas,

I wanted McFarland too I saw his announcement, but I am not gonna get made cause a kid who was a Miami lean for months chose to stay home, that's his right. if he wants to play for mediocre teams that go nowhere while richt builds a top notch program its his loss , Miami will be fine without him.

Why would we need to make any adjustments like that bc we missed out on filling the 4th string rb spot for next season?
