08:16 AM ET 03.20 | This year, Everett Golson will enter as the starter in South Bend, but there are other skill positions on the spot this spring -- including running back George Atkinson III. With Theo Riddick graduating and Cierre Wood leaving early for the NFL, Atkinson III will get his chance to become ND's featured back. ... [Notre Dame] coaches are excited about Atkinson III's future in South Bend. But he still has a lot to prove after not getting any carries in the BCS title game. The 6-1, 210-pounder has the big-play ability that the Irish will be dependent upon next year. It's just a matter of consistency. Cam McDaniel, Amir Carlisle and William Mahone will also fight for reps this spring.

GO IRISH...!!! Where are you Sandy U...? I miss your sarcasm, anti-Catholic rants and non wavering hatred for Notre Dame...!

Sandy goes radio silent whenever the news out of USC isn't very good.
Hopefully, that means we won't be hearing from him much in the coming year.
ND is going to do just fine with its RB situation. It's CFB, and every year the new kids step up to replace the departed players. That's what is so exciting about CFB.

The one I really miss is George Kaplan. Where was he after the Alabama game?

March 20, 2013  10:40 AM ET

Well, at least by playing Alabama they know what kind of back they will need to compete for a championship. Wait...that's wrong. There was nothing about that game you could call "playing" Alabama. They were on the same field as them. That's better.

All this kid needs to do is get himself a cyber girlfriend with a few ailments and he will be a starter.

I think that train left the station several weeks ago. Maybe you should try "pull my finger" if you want to rehash stale humor. That joke still resonates with most guys....!

Go Irish!

Why did he not get any carries in the NC game?

Gariboy! "Unwavering" is readily used by most 5th graders.
