Post-DP players that could start for Pony Express

Postby SoCal_Pony » Sun Jul 05, 2020 8:01 pm

1) Thomas Morstead - truly special, HOF-worthy??????
2) Courtland Sutton
3) Emmanuel Sanders

that’s it*

*for those who say James Proche or Cole Beasley, I say CS & ES beat them out for starting spots.

How much playing time would Zach get in that offense?

Josh LeRibeous at guard was a beast and would really have a big impact on that running game.

Remember that the question was "who could start." I just rewatched SMU-Aggy 1982 from Texas Stadium, and the announced starters were Dickerson and a fullback whose named I had forgotten, not Dickerson and James.

Here's the game, by the way; whoever posted it got really confused about what they had posted in what order, but you can see basically the whole game despite that:

Probably a lot at fullback. Maybe run some power I with all of them in.

Morestead might not have started. Craig James was the punter and he was adequate and he could take off and get a first down or take it to the house like he did in the Holiday Bowl.

Who were the CBs? Maybe Kevin Garrett and Jonas Rutledge.

Before a gimmick like running ability, I want a punter who can punt. Many of James' punts were line drives that added yards on bounces. Morstead launched them into orbit. He is the best punter in school history and it's a 1 horse race.

Nice players, but not over Rod Jones and Russell Carter.

Zach could have spelled Jerry Kovar.... 37 played offense and defense, and was a cramp machine.

Zach Line would have competed with Charles Drayton for the FB job but let's remember that Drayton went on to play in the NFL as well

It was actually Kovar mentioned above in another post who was listed as the starter in that '82 game. Was Drayton a different year?
