First off, we are 7-1...We handily dismissed USC.
We owe all of this to Juju. And as Juju's humble servant, it is my duty to provide a weekly candidate for Juju inflicted shenanigans.
Before I begin, I would like to ask if anybody will NOT vote for Gerhart. If you don't, you are insane. Now that I have alienated a few dozen people, time to begin (I'm licking my chops already!)
Toby Gerhart- A massive halfback that is huge; 6-1, 235. In case you don't know by now, he is massive and huge; and has repeatedly carried Stanford on his back. Last season, he accounted for just over 1100 yards, and accumulated a rather frightening 16 rushing touchdowns. This year, he cracked UW to the tune of 200 yards on 27 carries. Against USC (and a much better o-line than Stanford), we contained Gerharts closest comparison; Allen Bradford fairly well. Fortunately, he is a senior so we will never see him after this (Am I overlooking Stanford now?! PANIC!!!!).
I know we can contain Gerhart, however a little help never hurts.
Andrew Luck-Luck is a very good QB with even better size to follow suit; 6'4 235. Luck has not had a bad game all season; and is in my opinion a better freshman QB than Barkley is. Because of Gerhart we will be stacking the box much like we commonly did against USC. Expect a very similar defense. However, we need our CB's to win their one on one matchups, or else Luck may have a great game. Shall we curse him?
On a final note, We love you for what you have done thus far this season!
