Beating MT in FB this year would be a very odd chapter in Planters Bowl history.

Am I the only one who doesn't think it's a coincidence that the running game got better as soon as Cox went out?

Something I've noticed about strong and la la is that they tend to be a bit more patient after getting the ball, when they have the time. They kind of pause a second and wait for the line to move things a bit and then hit a hole. Cox looks like he makes up his mind and then reacts or instills his will over the defenders with his strength.

Cox has been injured since before the season even started. Id like to actually see him healthy, because if hes not, we have better backs.

Same. With us running the ZBS, the RBs have to wait for the holes to develop. There is no predetermined cut gap. But I understand why some backs never get used to it or lack the patience to play in a ZBS.

When Cox gets into the secondary no one wants to tackle him. When he's behind the line of scrimmage, though, he's easier to spot and bring down. Poorly coached teams try to tackle him high, like the UMASS team a couple years ago. You have to undercut him. Even Linebackers are being coached that now.

I don't think Jeremy Cox is our best running back. Based on quality touches, I think it's been Will Knight. Kesean Strong is up there as well. But if Cox gets through the line he is punishing and will wear a defense out. It's all situational football. I really liked how ODU used him to close out the VT game.

Agreed. Cox will force 2 or 3 people to bring him down. Dudes a monster once he gets going.

I like a Strong Cox 1, 2 punch. (someone had to say it!)

Wilder just said on Bruce Rader’s show that Cox and Garner will not be back for this game. They will return for North Texas.

We will be able to compensate for Cox.
Garner is one of the few bright spots on defense. His absence will likely be huge.

That must be a very bad concussion for Garner.

As someone that recently got concussed, I never realized how brutal they can be. He can take off the rest of the year if hes not quite feeling right.

I supposedly had a concussion when I was in elementary school but i don't remember it as being anything.

However, about 10 years ago I was playing softball and going for a fly in left field, and bounced off of the fence and hit the back of my head on the field. I remember looking up and someone asking me if I was ok, and I thought I answered "I'm fine" but apparently it was just nonsensical babble.
I spent the rest of that game on the bench looking out over the parking lot and hoping my wife and daughter were coming, because I had no clue where I was or how to find my way home.
Hehe this was at a complex just a few miles down the road that I had been playing at for over a decade.

That was one weird feeling.

The planter bowl rant the reddit post went on is awesome, too bad we still haven't beaten them.
