Follow me on twitter, @BSCTIDE. Let's tweet.
Hard to predict because we don't know how close to 100% Fowler or especially Hart will be. I'm really pulling for those guys, but we've seen guys with similar injuries take nearly two years to get back to 100%.
For that reason I'm going to leave them off until spring when we can get a much better idea of how they're progressing.
Drake or Henry (bc he's an early enroller)
Jones/Tenpenny (one of these guys could easily move up, but I give Henry the edge with the extra spring he'll have to learn and train)
I'm also going to guess that one of Jones/Tenpenny will RS as we shouldn't need both of them unless we get another string of injuries. So basically, I think Yeldon and Drake will be the staples at least early on. Then we might see a situation where one of the injured RBs or one of the freshman takes over the number two spot as Trent over took Upchurch. Or maybe Yeldon and Drake just ride out one and two all year as I think Drake has the potential to be a good one. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

I think a 4 back rotation, possibly 5
I think we were going to do this this year before the injury bug. Yeldon the lead guy and get about 50 percent of the carries each game, the other 50% divided between the other 3/4.. Obviously just a guess but I believe this is what we'll do
Fowler does like he was doing this year and plays a bunch as FB in the I-form (not the full time HBack like some think)
OJ Howard will be the HBack and we will use him like we used Brad Smelley, except even more creative. HBack is a great opportunity to be a hybrid TE/WR

Im not sure of the order but I do know Alabama RB's stacked, SEC fvucked!
If Fowler comes back healthy
Without a doubt. (If he dosent expect Drake and one of the Freshman to rotate at this spot.)
3. Drake/ 1 of the freshmen players./ or Hart (again if healty)
