VT -- I don't know that I agree with your assessment of RB. Teague was impressive against Coldwater - granted being the second threat after Jones is perhaps easier than having a target on your back, but as a D5 team, Jones was a once in a decade player, don't you think? This is going to make some of the schedule rough, but that's the row we hoe. Teague is still an amazing threat for most of the schedule we will face in the regular season or potential post. And even allowing for the skill of the defenders, that TD run by Thigpen was pretty solid.
I am not trying to bash Teague, cause he is a hell of a player and could end up bigger than Jones, considering Teague has MAC offers in addition to an offer to YSU. However I see him better at WR than RB, but that is just me. There are some young players that looked good at RB last night too..
Remember this: Jones did not get his shot to start until Mason went down prior to the Massillon game in 2007. From there on out, Jones owned the position.
