South Carolina: Marcus Lattimore Update

Wow, after watching this happen in the game and then seeing the video your stomach kind of drops a little for this kid.  One second youre future looks so bright, the next  ‘Spaghetti Leg’ and possible career over.  However, some good news out of South Carolina,  it appears that the injury was only a dislocated knee and ligament. Which, when held up to the video footage  is pretty remarkable. Nothing has been speculated as to Lattimore returning this season however, he has one red shirt season available.

Heres to a speedy recovery big dog.

News & Observer – N.C. State has three veteran running backs in James Washington, Tony Creecy and Mustafa Greene. Wolfpack coach Tom O’Brien typically rotates two over the course of the game.

How the carries will be split up next Friday in Atlanta for the season opener against Tennessee is still to be determined O’Brien said Thursday.

Asked if there was any separation in the competition, O’Brien said, “not really.”

“That’s one of those things,” O’Brien said. “Tomorrow we’re going to take off and do a lot of talking about personnel and everything. So we’ll make some decisions going forward.”

Well N.C State, if you want to hear a lot more of  “And that’s another Wolfpack….wait for it…… FIRST DOWN” who is your starting Back?
