    Smith's contract is up after this season and I can guarantee he won't be "back".

    I bet we do draft a RB in the 1st next year.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see them bring back Onterrio Smith, given the fact I doubt Bennett will be here next year.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    He does look much bigger than he did last year - hope hasnt lost any pace. One big knock on the guy is the fact that he has shown poor hands/ lapse of concentration while catching quite a few times. Like when he dropped a simple 5 yard dump off yesterday. He has one whole year to work on it though...

    He also looked a tad average running through the middle.. though Tulsa loading the box might have had something to do with that.

    Personally I cant wait to get to the game on the 10th. Go gophers!!!!

    I wouldn't be upset at all if we drafted a Gopher in the 1st round! Wasn't the last gopher drafted in the first round by us Carl Eller? Man he looked studly last night.. Even if they arent that good of a D I can tell the dude has game.. I see us getting a RB or Safety next year

    He should be a top 2 rb in the draft. He looked good last night! He might not last till our 32nd pick in the draft next year.
    He will be #3, unless Deanglo Williams chokes or he put up record numbers.

    Reggie Bush= top 5 pick
    Deanglo Williams = 5-10
    Laurence Maroney= 15-25

    Nah, we dont need another running back. Besides marooney did this against tulsa. Come on tulsa now. Tulsa sucks big time, even my warriors crushed them pretty badly last season as well.
    but its not like he ONLY does this to the bad teams. here are his game logs for the 2004 season:

    2004: Rush yards YPC
    Toledo: 107 7.7
    Illinois State: 141 7.8
    Colorado State: 132 7.8
    Northwestern: 145 6.0
    Penn State: 144 5.8
    Michigan: 145 7.6
    Michigan State: 54 4.2
    Illinois: 72 4.8
    Indiana: 89 5.6
    Wisconsin: 57 7.1
    Iowa: 156 8.2

    he also had 12 TDs. only 3 games where he didnt rush for 100 yards, and only 4 here he didnt avg atleast 6 ypc, but it never got under 4. he doesent do exactly what he did to tulsa against everyone, but he does perfrom good every week.
