Exterminator said he was strong as an ox and he proved it on that TD run in overtime. He ran over and through about five different Bison defenders on that play. He just would not be denied.
With him and Quante both only being freshman, our running back situation will definitely be in good hands for years to come. That is if we severe ties with our current OL coach, RB coach, Offensive Coordinator, Wide receiver coach, and quarterback coach. Replace all those clowns and then we will be straight.
If not, then we will probably just continue to waste talent like we did this year.

I agree with replacing those coaches but I suspect Renick and Davis will give them another year together...In my mind, the coach on the hottest seat is Brick! He may not survive as the OC next year but I suspect he will remain on the staff.

Amen Thrilla to your astute assessment.
Wonder if they will get Truesdale's name affixed to his uniform now? Better yet, have a name tag made. The C-SET announcers said that he had been assigned jersey number 6 , a number that had been retired (Travis Kelly??), but for the game was given number seven.
Well, Chaz Truedsale was named MEAC rookie of the week this evening. So much for the coaching staff's expert evaluation, claiming the kid was too soft and not ready to play as a freshman.
The University of Michigan was getting their butt kicked all over the place earlier in the year before their head coach decided to give a true freshman with no game experience a shot at quarterback and now their offense is rolling like gang busters and now he looks like some kind of football genius.
Damn, why can't our coaches just play the best athletes available regardless of class rank. Is that too much to ask?

Sometimes Aggie One coaches rate experience over youthfulness everytime. Sometime they are right and sometime they are not. I agree with only one expection I think Speight is better than all the RB we have. He should have been our starter for the year.
Having said that Truesdale is still a bad kid. I got to find out is this brother any kin to me. Later.
The majority of the blame should fall on Coach Patterson. He has the primary responsibility over the RBs. He is either a really poor judge of talent or he doesn't like the Truesdale kid for some reason.

Chaz Truesdale and Coach Patterson joined Small at today's press conference. Here is a excerpt from when Patterson fielded a couple of question concerning Truesdale's performance in the Howard game:
Patterson: "We didn’t have a doubt that he would step up. Chaz did some great things in practice- he’s been doing great things in practice all year, even with the scout team. The defensive coaches always speak highly of him, so we knew he would come in and do the things that we asked of him and do them tremendously. And that’s what he did."
On how he felt as a coach to see a player from the scout team come in and excell in an actual game:
"It means a great deal. Not only to me as a coach but to the program. It lets us know that we are doing the right things on and off the field. And that's what we’re about. "
Coach Small: "It also let’s me know that I might have to come up with a raise for him" [laughing}
