Could FSU have a 1000 yard rusher this year?

20

A friend told me that David Pollock (sp?) on one of the ESPN network shows predicted it, which I immediately poo-poo'ed due to the likely running back by committee, but in rethinking it, maybe it is possible. Consider 1) offensive line improvement 2) breakaway threats 3) schedule Scenario - Chris Thompson stays healthy all season and in the opening games against Murray State and Savannah State has a few big yardage runs - FSU offensive line shoves around inferior competition and FSU backs break a few big ones once they get to the next level. Thompson pops some 40-70 yard runs in each game, and totals 300 yards despite only 16-20 carries in the first two games. Against Wake Forest, with 12-14 carries in the game, he breaks a few 20+ yard carries and ends up with 120 yards. Three game total is 420 yards, leaving only 580 yards to reach 1000 in the next 9 regular season games to reach it before any post-season or 65 yards per game - totally in reach. Considering that post-season games count toward totals, reaching the ACC champ game and a bowl gives 11 games to reach it, or just 53 yards per game.
