How can several of you not understand this? First, it's Oku AND Dyer. Dyer has rushed for well over 5 yards per carry in his first two years combined in the SEC, as his team's premier back as a freshman and sophomore. Oku, as a freshman and sophomore, averaged more yards per carry than both Poole and Lane last season. As a kick returner, he was our premiere guy by far his freshman season and seemed to slip back a little in 2010.
Now, take all of that, combine it together, and match them up against Sun Belt teams instead of SEC teams. And Arkansas State just won the Sun Belt last season, so it's not like they're hoping these two can carry the team by themselves. They will dominate the Sun Belt in 2013, IMO. Could be interesting to see them play at Auburn that year as well, assuming Gus is still there.
