Forgive me, but I don't believe I saw any similar topics during searches of the board, but here goes...
One glaring item that I saw missing from the ND game was Toussaint. I believe I saw him in on a couple plays, but am not 100% sure of that. I am sure that he didn't record a carry or catch though. After a solid week (and a start for that matter) against WMU, I thought for sure he would be playing a decent bit.
This past week felt eerily like last year in regards to the running game against decent defenses. Basically, if it isn't Denard, it isn't working. The difference I felt this year was Toussaint.
Smith = Loss or 2-3 yard gain
Shaw = running sideways or backward when he should have hit that hole a while ago
Hopkins = 1-2 yard gain or fumble
Anyone have any insight as to why Toussaint wasn't even given the ball once? Was there an injury that I missed?
