RB's:

Ito Smith 5'9 195
George Payne 6'0 210
Tez Parks 6'1 210

JUCO-TR T-Rod Daniels 5'9 175
RS-FR Andre Hale 5'9 195
FR Darius Maberry 5'9 191

Both potential starting QB's are duel threat guys:

Keon Howard 6'1 215
Kwadra Griggs 6'3 225

I don't know about your RB's but Keon Howard looked like a good runner to me albeit with loose hands and terrible throwing. Ito Smith will definitely be a top 3 RB in the league.

It will depend on the O-line AND O-line depth.

With Mullins gone, they'll have to.

Our running attack will be good this year. We may have the best back, and he's a freshman.

Southern Mississippi was 8th in CUSA last year in ypc and 6th in total rushing yards.

We should have a good rushing offense this year.

Maybe, and maybe not. I think Lawry and Cox will give Smith and Payne a good run for their money (pun intended). As for QB production, that will depend on who wins our QB competition, but if it is JUCO transfer Jordan Hoy, he ran for 712 yards last year while throwing for 3434 yards and 37 TDs at Fullerton College in California. If he is our starter and as good as we hope, the Monarchs will challenge any other running game in the conference.

Ito is the conference's top returning rusher. Need a decent O-line and connect on some vertical passes downfield. We may not have the 'best', but we'll lead the league in rushing attempts for sure.

ODU and LT should have solid run games.

If the O-line holds up, FAU might have a fearsome platoon of running backs this season.

Ito is a monster, though...
