LaMic or Hunter?

LaMic or Hunter?

Hunter is a beast. James is talented yet unproven.

Pretty easy if you ask me...
Seriously. Not even close. Hunter has proven himself and is more familiar with the offense the LMJ. Hunter can just play and not think what he has to do and what he should for or how to react. However, I expect him to get touches on ko and pr duties as well packages, where it 2nd and short lines up in the bf, but motions out, with kaep as the QB, kaep can pitch it, toss it or keep it on a run or if they crowd the line toss it or have AS back their and still do the same.
Hunter for now.

Ease LaM in as the season progresses.

they're both going to be great backs. Hunter has mroe experience and knows the playbook better. Also dood loved to pass protect. he's def been learning well from Gore. Give LMJ some time, the reason he looks slow out there is cuz he was late to OTA cuz of UO's late graduation. He's still learning the playbook, how to huddle, etc. when he just knows it, and doesnt have to think his speed will show.


It's about time somebody pointed that out. James is plenty fast enough. Hunter is just a year ahead of him. We're lucky to have them both.

When Kaep scored that touchdown, they went no huddle and ran an option just like Oregon. Then they put that play away, and we didn't see it again. Just saying...

Agree with most. Hunter's looking great and LMJ not terribly impressive as of now. So until LMJ closes the gap, Hunter's getting the much heavier load of carries over LMJ. For preseason carries? Hey, let's look at LMJ more. Hunter's already proven, as far as I'm concerned.

Man, that last statement gets me fired up. Because it says so much about our coaching staff.
at this moment.. hunter by far

ask the question again in 3 years and I guarantee it will be close if not.. of set by LMJ taking all votes
Hunter is Gore's backup, and will spot him carries. LMJ will be used more as a specialist, like Sproles early on in his career.
right now its Hunter and its not even close.... BUT next year watch out I think LaMic is going to be ready to be a play maker.... would love to see a Kap and Lamic package.
When gore retires, keep'em both as a 1, 2 punch with a broozer(BJ type of back). Stealing a page outta Carolina's old playbook but niners style. Why make 1 RB take a season beating when the load can be shared 3 ways. With all three being starter material.

LMJ will NEVER be an every down back in this league. He likes to bounce it outside way too often. Hunter can run between the tackles as well as bounce it outside when needed.
Hunter will be the starter next year possibly. I am hoping for him to take a step this year and go to another level. LMJ ideally will be a great third down back like Sproles.
Watch the tape on Hunter from last year, reminded me of Gore his rookie year
