I would normally agree, but Fitz has done an extraordinary amount of dancing rather than heading upfield this game. I'm not saying replace him as the starter, just give a couple carries to the other backs to see if they can have better success.

He had one run at the beginning of the 2nd half against ND, but that is about it.  Not sure what the issue is, but he looked a lot more decisive last season.  I am sure it's a combination of the OL and how he's running.  I'd like to see another RB get some reps though, especially Rawls.

 this half. The D is playing well and Purdue's O is obviously mediocre at best. Normally I don't like when teams sit on the lead, but sometimes the circumstances are appropriate to do so.
