08:23 AM ET 06.04 | At the top end of the running back class of 2013, we find, at least, Spencer Ware, Montee Ball, Ray Graham and Knile Davis, but, in the eyes of many, Marcus Lattimore heads the list. Even when [Lattimore] was completely healthy as a sophomore, I would not put him in the same class as Adrian Peterson or Trent Richardson, as I don't see the same type of explosive first step from Lattimore when pressing the hole. Now, that isn't to say I don't see Lattimore (if healthy) as a potential top-5 NFL back. ... [If] Lattimore can fully recover from his knee injury, he looks like a guy who will be ready to step in and take the pounding of an every down type NFL back from day one.

Give the dude another year of toting it, then judge him for the draft. I think he's still getting better. Any RB that can convince SOS to favor running the ball vs chucking it has something good going on.

Thanks FN for sparing us the visor pic!

Does he hit the weight room hard? I seem to remember that he's not a workout person? Maybe.

That was classic.

Reminded me of junior high basketball (in Kentucky, so they took that crap seriously). We had a player who refused to run laps. We kicked him off the team but the coach let us vote to let him return. I voted no, but they all voted yes, because he was talented. We never ran another lap in practice again. During shoot around we played dodgeball with very expensive basketballs. Accordingly, we missed the playoffs for the first time in about 10 years.

Congrats to you all as well ... Big Regional win... I know we going to Omaha... UCF or Stony Brook at the BoxII... LMAO...UF def going, unless they have to play Vandy( which will make it interesting).SCe is lock IMO as well...Hopefully you all play like this against Dallas Baptist or whoever to make #4...Shocked by Moo State..

I expect Baylor to pull it out tonight. Arky got a great draw....didn't say much last week not wanting to pizz off the texas guys on here but would rather play light hitting, good pitching teams like Rice and Baylor.

Not sure we'll make it out, but we'll make it interesting w/ our pitching...couple of key hits and we could be in Omaha. I think SEC will have 4 there.

Moo state and KY surprised me...KY peaked too early, not sure what happened to da boodogs.

Congrats to LUS, if/when Arky goes out, I'll put on my purple and gold.

Does his o-line suck? IMHO a good offensive lines can make an average running back look pretty damn good.

You'd do better with orange and blue.

And to think they based your RPI off of palying Miami sorry ****

Is it our fault the Canes are living off their rep, just like in football?

We're peaking at the right time, on the mound and at the plate.

No but you benefited from it..Easy to peak w/ that Regional you guys had...

Jelly much? LOL!

That's the good thing about a tourney. If a team is weak, they'll get exposed and usually sooner rather than later. We'll see if the Gators hang in.
