    The important thing about this list is that our new 3-4 alignment must try to slow down 4 of the top 10 RB's in the country. And 3 of those 4 are going to have good OL's in front of them.  Don't know about Crockett's OL.

    We did. He still wouldn't be a starter.

    Seriously. Do we have a running back being mentioned in the top 10 in the country? Don't get me wrong I like Whaley but "come on man" we could have had them both.

  • I'm pretty sure that every unbiased observer in the country would have a differing opinion on that. 

    Maybe Whaley can change that perception this year, if he gets decent OL play in front of him.  Right now Kurt Anderson has impressed no one outside of NWA. 

    What has KA done to impress those inside NWA? Please explain

    Are you serious? Crockett over Whaley is laughable. I want some of whatever you've been drinking or smoking. And like I said in an earlier post I like Whaley but as of right now Crockett seems to be the better running back. Maybe Whaley can change that narrative this coming season.

  • Dumb to be critical of the staff for this one.  For some earlier oline decisions including the lack of numbers is justified.  Not the recruiting in that class of RBs.

    Whaley was around one of the Top 100 recruits overall and a top 5 RB recruit recruited hard by LSU, UGa, Texas and the like.

    We pursued Devin White to the end.  A national Top 150 recruit and top 5-6 RB recruit.

    Hammonds was signed in this class. 

    RWIII was on the roster.

    Crockett was nowhere near this level of recruit.  Good for him he got an opportunity to play in the SEC in an offensive system where he could put up good numbers and play early.

    It doesn't really matter what "unbiased observers" think.  He wouldn't be a starter.  He would contribute, for sure.

    Good points. I for one was hoping that he got an offer once the Devin White and the kid from Texas deal fell through, can't recall his name right now. I always knew TJ Hammonds was more of an all purpose back not a pure running back.

    Update, the kids name from Texas was Kyle Porter.

    Having them both, in hindsight, would definitely be good right now.  However, we didn't have a lot of room there when Rawleigh was here.

    I do think Whaley is better than Damarea.  Just hasn't been given the same opportunity..........YET.  I think he'll show out this year.

    I hope so. I believe both of them are good. Crockett just got a chance to show what he can do earlier and more often. Now it's Whaley's turn. WooPig!!

    I was going to ask since people are comparing them. Did Crocket have a starter infront of him with lots of experience expect to take most of the load?

    He was the only show in town. Their cupboard was non-existent. Their leading tailback from 2015, Sr Hansbrough, was graduated. They had Ish Witter, a JR 3* 5'8" RB out of FL who had rushed for 4.1 YPC in 2015. Nobody else on the depth chart had shown any promise at RB either. Witter had also been frequently banged up.

    They brought in a JUCO 4*, Neatreace Strong along with Crockett but he struggled.

    Crockett won the position and he definitely exceeded expectations, but that does not mean that the Razorbacks should have offered him.

    RWIII would have been on that top-10 list if he had not retired from FB.

    Good for Crockett that he found a place. More power to him. But you can't rewind history and you can't say that the guys on our roster who were *behind* a 1300-yard rusher are not just as good or better.

    Crockett had Ish Witter, who is serviceable, in front of him. But Witter is/was nowhere near RWIII.

    Absolutely.

    And to the second part, you're correct. Domino effect. We take Crockett, we probably don't get both Maleek and Chase. What if both of them turn out to be better than Crockett?

    He didn't have anyone like Rawleigh in front of him.  He got to carry the load in the last half of the season.  I think if Whaley got that sort of load, he would ball.  Guess we'll see!

    As a matter of correctness, he did make that claim.  You stating that he "Can't make that cliam" is not true.  Anybody with a brain knows what you meant and would be an arse to argue that point.  Likewise, anyone with half a brain and any amount of knowledge about the kid, the recruiting that occurred and the results of the coaches with current and past RBs would also have to be an arse to be very critical.  There is a difference in saying, "I wish we had taken him now that I have seen what he can do."  It is another thing to argue that we "SHOULD" have recruited and offered.  To say we should have offered is plain wrong.

    If you are going to compose the top-10 list based on what teams did to our 2016 run defense, you are going to have to add Auburn's waterboy to the list.

    I think they were auctioning off snaps to boosters at halftime.

    Crockett got started carries because of injury.  Put Whaley in that spot as a frosb and he beasts out.  Whaley got 600yds as a freshman backup to the leading rusher in the SEC.

    Let's see who is more highly thought of after this season.

    Was thinking the same thing, facing 4 of the top 7 running backs in the nation. Guess it is better than facing 4 of the top QBs.

    According to ESPN, only Alabama, LSU, and Auburn have a better line than Mizzou in the conference.

    Quote
    4. Missouri: The Tigers are in great shape up front, returning all five starters from a 2016 group that allowed the SEC's fewest tackles for loss and sacks. The Tigers bring in a large recruiting haul, so the depth is plentiful here.

    This piece does a decent job explaining why those stats are misleading due to Mizzou's offensive scheme:

    Every recruiting several and P5 program thought Whaley over Crockett. Crockett has better Freshman stats l. Of course he wasn't playing behind the SEC's regular season rushed either
