Same here. 

I loved that play against Auburn where he scored the first td catch and basically demolished that AU LB/S.  He ran that dude over.

I didn't think we would ever have a better blocking FB than Skull but Stumon was imo. Bradford is going to love him I think.

He will be competing with Britt Miller, a second year player from Ill with no stats in 2 years in the league.

Van was awesome but had Adam Daily not been hurt,  he would have been the best blocking fullback the U would have ever had.

adam dailey was who popped into my head when thinking of the best fullbacks we've had.  guy was nothing short of amazing.



stumon was awesome last year though.

wish he had another year of eligibility.

I agree.  Though if Mark Pierce had his act together, he could have had it too.

eh, maybe.  i thought the off the field stuff never really kept pierce from performing.  he was a good player.

i'd take stumon and dailey over him, though.

pierce was a much better runner and receiver, but i don't think he was in van stuman's universe when it came to blocking (and i watched pierce's odd college career up close).

Pierce was more like Hillis.  Pierce could really really run.  He was a great high school RB in Texas.  He also had that same tougher than nails attitude that Hillis had.  It is just that Pierce was mean and a mess off the field. 

A kid like Pierce needed a coach like Petrino.  Petrino would have either straightened him out or kicked him off the team pretty quickly.  Straightening him out may have been an impossible job for anyone, but the kid never had a chance at all with Nutt and what passed for discipline and consistency in the circus he ran up there.

very good point, whyte. i totally agree. don't think he would've had 'roid rage or the stalking girls history he had at the UA had petrino been in charge.

he'd likely be in the league right now. starting.
