North Texas running back Brandin Byrd carries the ball against South Alabama on Nov. 10 at Apogee Stadium in Denton.
Or, use your
Since he strapped on a helmet at the age of seven in Pop Warner Football through his high school and now college career Brandin Byrd has been handed a ball 20+ times in 98 games. 97 of them were wins for his team. Only 21 carries last year angainst ULMonroe would see 21 Byrd runs in a loosing effort. Both Dan McCarney and Jack Welch have forgotten more about football than I'll ever learn but I have been amazed for years at the lack of carries the young man gets based on the almost certainty of victory if he exceeds 20 carries. At UNT he broke a 1,000 yards his senior year with an average of just 15 carries per game. During his college career with the Mean Green Brandin has exceed 2,000 yards with a paltry average of 9 carries per game in the last four year. With a bowl game coming up I respectfully submit a bit of advice to Coach Mc. "Let the big dawg run!"
