I really liked what I saw from him in the spring game.  I'm hoping him Stinson, and Morris make up a 3 headed monster back there.

Re: Don't Count Him Out

I'd like to give this guy more credit but I watched a lot of Spring practices and I have to say… this guy needs more time to develop. He didn't pick up any significant yardage on most runs.

Maybe they could try him on punt returns.

Re: Don't Count Him Out

Rolle possesses good hands.  It seems like a running theme for backs FAU recruits where they can be used as slot receivers out of the back field.

FAU has always employed a running by comity scheme and should employ the same type of game plan this season.  With Bam Bam as the featured back, Floyd, Stinson, Rolles & lets not forget Barasch we have a solid backfield.  Inexperience, but as far as talent level - above what we've had.  Floyd probably hold the most experience, just on the small side compared to the others.

And at FB we have Rose, Muniz, Watkins - not sure who replaces Rose, felt it would be Morris, but has since moved to the RB position … solid there.

Wait is Jeff Blanchard pretty much done at this point?

Re: Don't Count Him Out

He may return late in the season, but having not played for over 6 months would suspect it would be tough to make in an impact...

I was told Muniz may have quit the team for peronal reasons.

If that was true, I wonder if they'd play Barasch as third string FB
