I think it's pretty obvious that Gordon is faster, has better vision, hits the holes quicker, and cuts better than White does.
White's a very solid HB at the college level but Gordon has that "something special" about him when he runs.
Take away that 49 yard run to open the game on Saturday and White had 76 yards on 25 carries...definitely not the kind of production that would warrant him getting twice as many carries in a game as Gordon, who has proven to be the more explosive runner out of the two all season
And take away a 15 yard run from Gordon on a late 3rd and long and his stats were just as bad. He also fumbled in a key spot (2 in 2 weeks now).
This team leans on White because he is the senior and has carried the full load in the past. Even in HS Gordon rarely carried the ball more than 20 times.
Also, has anyone noticed which running back has had more big plays as the competition got "better?"
MGII has the full package, however, he still has to prove he can put it all together consistently. The UW staff isn't gonna give him the ball 30 times a game when they don't have to at this point.
NO one gets the ball 30 times in a game on a consistent basis unless you are playing high school football.
