I don`t care how good a RB you are,you can not run without the OL opening holes. I speak from personal experience. VT has good backs. I expect Coleman,Edmunds,and Harris to be more than capable this season if the OL performs as they should.
I'd like to see some I formation with Edmunds and Harris wearing the defense out. JC could be a great 3rd down back catching balls and screens or running draws. Plus I'd like to see JC return punts and KO's.
He ran 10.8 in the 100, and close to 22 flat in the 200 in the eleventh grade.
Like many footballers who are also sprinters, you have to specialize, and beefing up and sprinting are often at odds with each other, so his 12th grade times werent as good as 11th.
These times are very good in the sprint world, but not great.
I'm looking forward to ther being holes! Ican't remember too many from last year.
I thought someone said Mangus was moving to wide receiver...is that true?

Mangus had some impressive highlight videos. He had good vision and a very fluid running motion (Gale Sayers like). Hope he can add some good weight and keep his quickness. I think he may be a suprise addition to back up Edmunds along with JC.
I wonder if Mangus could be a Percy Harvin type of player where VT gets him the ball in different ways...returning kicks,catching passes,reverses,etc.
We definitely have some guys with speed on offense. The exciting part will be how the new coaches utilize their speed. I have full confidence that we will do a better job of using our playmakers than in the past. I think they should use Mangus on jet sweeps ala WVU and send him deep on wheel routes out of the backfield. I'm pretty sure getting him out in space vs. linebackers is a good match-up for VT.
Opposing d lines sure do.

I really liked how New England used Vereen last week.
