I agree that the running game was still pathetic last night and that was really surprising to me. But it was apparent to me that Auburn was locking in on Scott and the running game. I think they thought that if they could shut down the run, they could win it or be in it at the end. I think they kind of challenged us to throw and we did with success. I don't don't think people are really trying to dump on Charles Scott. He was the hero in the Georgia game and we might not be sitting as pretty if he wouldn't have had that awesome run. He's the ultimate team player too. People are just trying to get at what will work. I've been saying for a while now that Scott hasn't been coming out the backfield near as fast as he did earlier in his career and in the beginning of last year. That's just my opinion. I don't know if it's weight gain or maybe some type of nagging injury that he might be playing with. Our O-line is obviously the biggest problem in the running game. But you really have to hit the hole fast (if there is one) and it's not working out right now. He can still have some big plays for us, but they need to disguise stuff a little better. He's not going to run people over if he doesn't have enough steam coming out the backfield and I think we've seen that this year. I still think we run much better out of the shotgun and should do that against Bama. I believe Shep's TD was a shotgun handoff as well. As for Shep., he didn't do anything on those other carries. BUT...he made most forget about those other plays with that long TD. They said the dude reaches max speed in no time and they weren't kidding. He's a "take it to the house" threat and that's what our running game has not had. He had our longest offensive play of the year and the longest run since 2007. I do worry about possible fumbles againt teams like Bama, etc., since he's young and not a huge guy. But you've gotta get the home run threat in there against the big boys because the payoff is not big enough to keep continually doing the other stuff all the time. Especially not against a team like Bama. We'll move backwards doing that.
