Former Card Anthony Allen Can Run With the Ball



I know the Pravda view coming from the UL administration is that Bobby Petrino left a program that was doomed to collapse because of poor recruiting and a roster full of bad apples.  You can think whatever you want about that.  I believe it as much as the Communist headline, "Long Waits for Stale Bread - Good For Your Health!".  One such "bad apple" that left the program after Saint Steve (SS) arrived is Anthony Allen.  Everyone surely remembers this terrible kid.  Military family, played as a true freshman (so grades were probably not an issue), holds the single game UL rushing record.  He was such a bad kid that he had to transfer to an awful insitution of higher learning to continue his football career (Georgia Tech).

I dont follow the Yellow Jackets but I did run across Anthony's stat lines for his first season with them. 

32 carries for 367 yards and 3 TDS.  4 recs for 81 yards and another TD.  The 367 is bloated a bit by an 82 yard TD run but even without, the average is still 9+ per carry.  I dont know why he isnt getting more touches.  Maybe Saint Steve's cousin is their offensive coordinator.

The one thing the Cards have going for them is that we have a surplus of talent at tailback (and Tronzo isnt a bad fullback either).  With Coach Petrino, the offense was balanced and tailored to match the talent.  With Saint Steve, who knows what you will get each week.  I suspect the next "bad apple" to leave will be Darius Ashley.   Lets just hope he doesnt end up another stat stuffing RB that we wish we had in our backfield.
