Starter; 15-20 carries
As mentioned in the team preview, the Roadrunners desperately need a strong running game to compliment quarterback Eric Soza. While he did have three poor performances, Soza was well ahead of the curve as a passer last fall. He was not helped by a running game that never got rolling: Evans Okotcha led the team in rushing with only 326 yards. This production — he was the only back with a 100-yard game — separates Okotcha from his competition, as does his size and relative shiftiness. He led the team in rushing despite spending a good portion of the year as a lead blocker; this fall, Okotcha will have every opportunity to earn 15 carries per game.

No arguments here, minus one: Texas-San Antonio is building from the ground up – literally, with bricks, mortar, steel – yet chose, as its inaugural head coach, an individual who took the built-in foundation at Miami (Fla.) and reduced it to rubble. In the program’s defense, the Roadrunners needed not merely a head coach but also an ambassador, and for any of his coaching faults, Larry Coker does provide the university with a noteworthy face for the program. But the time for press conferences and banquets is over, starting… now. I hope Texas-San Antonio saved a few shovels from all those groundbreaking ceremonies: the Roadrunners are going to need to dig themselves out of more than a few holes in 2012.
