The Spread power T? Bring it ON!!!!!
I was going to photoshop this, but couldn't find enough pictures of the RBs in the backfield
With Hyde coming on so strong at the end of the year it will be interesting to see how Urban handles Hall coming back, assuming he's 100%. It's a good problem to have, but I don't see how you keep either of them off the field.
Lose some weight and be a wr/rb instead of a rb/wr? Not sure how Meyer is going to fit Hall, Hyde, Smith, Dunn, Ball and the freshman into games, but he's talked about how important it is to get the best 11 in the field.
Injuries seem to always take their toll on running backs. There is an old coaching adage: "You can never have too many running backs".
One way is to get a big lead!!!!
Another way, is to run a lot of plays and run them fast and have all drives go for TDs!
Its also very realistic that 2 rbs play at the same time. We are no longer using a fb lead blocker, so I see no problem in having a mixture of say: Hyde/hall, Hyde/Dunn, smith/hall, etc
Hmmm...both Hall and Hyde in the backfield, fake the handoff to Hyde, Brax rolls out with Hall towards the edge and we have a deadly option play there I think. Who do you guard? If Hyde and Brax sell the initial handoff that draws a bit of the defense to the middle, then they have to guard both Hall and Braxton on the edge with the remainder.
I think we'll see him on the field a lot. This offense lacks playmakers and Jordan offers the ability to take it to the house. Hyde, Hall, Philly, Smith, oh and some guy named Miller. Should have a pretty damn good running attack.
So I take it that Hall has already gotten an approved medical redshirt?
I don't think that's a foregone conclusion. I think the consensus is he will be granted another year of eligibility but nothing is official, as far as I know.

Per OSU, Jordan Hall has in fact received his medical redshirt and will be returning in 2013.
think most of his knew it was just a formality at this point, but is offical now
that's a crowded backfield next year. You will have 5-6 legitimate options @ RB w/ new, play-making freshmen in the mix @ the WR position that will be taking some carries away as well. I love the guys we have. I hope nobody leaves.
Based off of this past year's crowded backfield, I'll take it.
I assume Hall will be playing the "Percy Harvin" type role he was supposed to play this year.
Regardless you can never have too many tailbacks, an inevitable injury or 2 and that "crowd" doesn't look so crowded
