We all know that on a Solich-led squad that two or three RBs will share the load unless there is a clear favorite emerges...but where would you all come out this year if you could choose the order at RB, who gets the most carries?

I think O'Shaan Allison is a major talent and rushed for 6.3 yards a carry last year as a redshirt freshman. He is a future all-MAC back, without question. I love how he runs with patience and if he improves his speed, the sky is the limit...

But Tuggle...WOW!...Something tells me we should be using him HEAVILY this year. He is such a well-rounded back and a HR hitter and this is his last year. With the loss of ROURKE keeping the edges honest and a question who will assume QB, I REALLY like Tuggle to get the nod. He is a willing blocker too in the passing game and is a huge threat one-on-one in the passing game against a safety or LB.

I love Ross as a player and competitor but I just dont see him finishing in the top two in 2020.

As last season progressed, I kept hoping to see more of Tuggle. This season I hope he gets the starting nod. If - and it seems a sizable if - Allison does add speed, then I would be happy to see the two men pretty much split carries.

Probably need to throw Walter Wilbon III into the mix as a RS frosh. Some on here have shared the thought of using Ross in a slot position, allowing him to use his skills in the open field more.

As you said, we all know multiple RBs are going to get carries. Last year it seemed like we used Allison as more of an every down guy but Tuggle's speed is undeniable. He can break any play wide open. I really hope we get him involved more; not sure about his pass-catching abilities but he could be very dangerous in the open field. My biggest complaint about our offense the past decade has been our inability to get back involved in the passing game...


I've seen crazier things happen.

Count me in that group. He has tremendous speed, and with his history of injuries, I worry about him at Running Back. I'd like to see him used like Papi White.

Wilbon was kind of forgotten last year, with Tuggle and Allison. I believe Wilbon arrived with an injury, and therefore took a redshirt. Make no mistake, he has some talent. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him in the rotation, and getting a lot of carries. Here's his hudl:

I personally would keep Wilbon at RB. Him and Papi are built differently. Wilbon is almost built like a bulldog. Papi was slim and shifty. I also personally think we have two good young slot WRs.

Sorry I wasn't clear. I was saying to move Ross to WR and use him like Papi. I agree that I want Wilbon at RB.

I got ya. I just dont see where Ross would fit into our already deep WR corp. Crazy how deep we are in skilled positions.

I don't know where he fits in, either, but he's an athlete, and hopefully a way can be found where he can contribute. Like Papi, he has some serious speed.

My vote is for Tuggle. I've liked him since the beginning of last season. At the Pitt game I had a perfect angle to view his TD run. He was able to make just the right cuts at the right to make a difficult TD look easy. I also remember an interview with. He's a well-spoken and intelligent young man. I really like him. He's my man!

Tuggle Touchdown, or "Tuddy" has always had a nice ring to me!

That being said, it's nice to have such a capable and talented backfield!

My opinion is that Allison is the tougher inside runner, and Tuggle is the more elusive runner. With that as the premise, I like Allison as the starter to wear the defense down a bit, and Tuggle as the change of pace to big up chunks of yards later on. Both should get carries. As I previously said, I would love to see Ross moved to WR where his speed and athleticism could be used with less chance of injury.
