    This is off the subject,but Nolan Cromwell was one of my favorite pro players when he played for the Rams. I think he played at Kansas, great athlete.

    In some decent news Ourlads has Jeremy Fejeledem a soph. cb for Air Force is listed as a starter going into fall camp. He is obviously the brother of Casey the starting safety for the Bungals.

    Ourlads also has the starting rb as Nolan Eriksen a sophomore for Air Force. He is the younger brother of senior rb , Ian Eriksen from Eastern Michigan. 2 very athletic families here.

    Nolan had some nice carries last year backing up Tim McVey......
    If Ian makes it to any scouts’ 2019 draft analysis websites, it will surely say he’s a “lunch pail” guy.....That is Ian to a tee......Works hard, average speed, etc......
    I wat he’d a lot of EMU and Air Force the last couple years.......
    Air Force has a couple tough fullbacks to contend with, as well......

    2 must see teams for running back lovers......

    I’ll make a list of running backs to watch this season sometime this summer for all the new guys.......McVey was the only senior last year. This year should be better than last year.....Who will be the new Patrick Laird and surprise us?......Josh Hokit of Fresno???....A lot of us were in agreement about Nall coming out early. I’ve changed my mind. I’d much rather see him shoot for 1000 yards in the PAC 12 than warm a bench in the NFL. Did he really think the new coach would not start him over some one with a fraction of the talent???.....Wouldn’t surprise us....

    Was about to say possibly BYU ex-QB Austin Krafentzis who played Tailback toward the end of last season (5.5 avg per carry) had 98 yards rushing vs. Hawaii...but was he moved to Defensive Back.

    If & when the opportunity is given..someone will emerge...like Laird it maybe because of injuries.

    Burrow has an impressive skill set....good for a couple of extra victories. Plenty of Buckeye fans thought he was better than Haskins; shown in the Spring game.

    I was hoping Brennan would be the starter as he was the best QB by a longshot on the roster. The two quotabacks on LSU are a joke. Hopefully Burrow comes in and takes the starting job for the next two seasons. I hate to see Brennan pushed aside - hopefully he transfers.

    Burrow got the caste treatment at the QB position at OSU. He lost his spot due to injury and as TwentyTwo mentioned - Burrow showed he was better than the OSU quotaback. Hopefully Martell takes the job from Haskins at some point.

    In a move that defines the caste system perfectly. Arizona St. RB Nick Ralston is switching positions to LB. This after Arizona St. just saw it's two RBs at the top of the depth chart leave for the NFL.

    Arizona State redshirt junior RB Nick Ralston transitioned to linebacker in the spring.

    Ralston (6'0/221) rushed for 139 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 2016, but saw just four carries during the most recent campaign. He wasn't realistically going to be an integral part of the offensive attack this year, making his shift to linebacker a logical one. Look for Eno Benjamin to handle the bulk of the work out of the backfield down in the desert as the team looks to transition from the outgoing Kalen Ballage and Demario Richard.

    Unsurprisingly, 5-star QB Hunter Johnson is transferring from Clemson. Northwestern and Purdue the mostly likely transfer prospects.

    The best thing he could have done. He was only going to get some clean up reps with Dabo.

    He should of never committed to Clemson. I wish he chose Notre Dame. He squandered his freshman season - at least he will have three years of eligibility. Let's hope he makes the right choice.
