So it's Monday night and I'm watching a handful of last weekend's games a little more closely on the ESPN video server, and when the Hawaii-Florida game flickers to life my intention is to pay extra attention to Florida's young running backs and their impact on the offense.
After one game versus a pedestrian Hawaii defense, the answer to all three questions appears to be "yes." Both backs flashed their home run speed, with Demps breaking off a 76-yard run and Rainey busting a 58-yarder. In addition, sophomore Brandon James accounted for 121 all-purpose yards and is yet another versatile weapon capable of breaking a game open as a runner, receiver and return man. And oh, by the way, USC transfer Emmanuel Moody might be the most complete back in the group, and he has yet to make an impact.
