    Ball State's duo at RB of Will Jones and Carson Steele is fun to watch. They are sitting at 4-4. As I mentioned in DB thread regarding Miami Ohio, I hope they can win out and make a Bowl Game. Both solid teams to follow in MAC.

    Great list. I've never watched Garrett Schrader or Sam Howell on tv yet this year. I'm missing out. Both dual threat talents with some serious wheels. Thanks
    for putting together an amazing list. Shipley would have way more yards if not for missing a few games. He is special. Borghi would also easily rush for 1000 yards
    but is only getting around 40 to 45 percent o the carries. Both of these guys have a future on playing on Sundays for sure.

    Epic pics with great stats! Thanks and I'm so excited about all the young stud freshman running backs. It's gives us all here great pleasure to know that we
    will be able to watch alot of these young stud running backs for several more years and they will only get better as they go forward!

    I still say Carson Steele reminds me of Toby Gerhart. I see some Peyton Hillis in him too and if we want to go back a ways I will add Mike Alstott!

    Carson Steele has the early look of a guy that’s going to have 4000+ rushing yards in his career.

    Shipley could play in the NFL next year if he was eligible!

    Appreciate the great updates! Would be awesome to see some Big Ten Teams reach out to Mueller. Purdue,Northwestern, Illinois, Wisconsin,Iowa, Minnesota should all throw their hats in the ring!

    Guggenheim is in SEC country so i guess that's a little less likely..

    Agreed on Steele. He's a big, back coming into his own as the season rolls on. Impressive Freshman!

    Roberts and Borghi are holding it down out West. Looking forward to seeing what Max does against Oregon today.

    Dayton usually always has a White RB. Glad to see Chisholm carrying on the tradition.

    Time to add RAt Dog to the list ...

    He was mentioned here on CF this Pre-Season; Leonardfan was nice enough to start the Northern Illinois Huskies 2021 thread ; I chimed in seeing his name on the Pre-Season DraftScout ; Ratkovich was the 5th Ranked Fullback on the list....
    http://castefootball.us/index.php?threads/2021-northern-illinois-huskies.38391/

    Here is the 96 Yard TD Run....compliments to El Gringo!
    """Not bad for a FULLBACK""".....If he were not so pale he'd be listed as a Running Back

    25 Yard Game Winning TD in OT last week....

    Excellent work TwentyTwo. I'm really high on this kid too. We all know that he was criminally underused. Ratkovich is
    capable of so much more. Our guys just need to find a team that will believe in them. Look at Carson Steele. Lucky for
    him one team kept him at running back and he had over 800 yards as a freshman rb. Let's hope the NFL takes note and
    Ratkovich goes to a team that will use him as a weapon. He is a little similar to a Taysom Hill even though he is not a qb.
