      In three years of playing at Michigan, Shane Morris never, ever, ever accounted for a touchdown – not rushing, not passing, not receiving. O’Korn threw a TD pass on his 10th attempt at Michigan, and he had better numbers as a true freshman at Houston than Morris has as a fifth year senior for CMU.

    Thunder, AJ Dillon has been racking up huge numbers this year. Do you think he is better than our three RBs (Evans, Higdons and Issac)?

      Higdon is averaging 6.6 ypc and has 10 TDs on 129 carries.
      Dillon is averaging 4.7 ypc and has 8 TDs on 221 carries.

      Dillon has more rushing yards (1039 vs 854) mostly because his backup’s aren’t as good as Higdon’s.

      Also Dillon hasn’t caught a single pass all year while Higdon and Evans have combined for over 200 yards receiving.

      The staff may have been looking at Dillon as a future FB, like Davis. Things probably worked out for the best for everyone.
