I put this in my notes from today's presser, but it's been such a hot topic on the board that i didn't want you guys to miss it. Again, this is straight from Mack himself...
D.J. Monroe is being worked at running back this week. Mack said he's not a natural wide receiver and the transition there has been tough for him, so they are slowly working him into the mix at running back. Mack said, joking with the media, Monroe is the most publicized third team player in the country and his legend grows everyday, but just sticking him in one spot and telling him to go out and perform is not as easy as some think. He said Monroe's size is a concern and he probably won't play on short yardage and goal line, but they are looking at getting him involved at running back. Mack said he's not sure how much he'll play on Saturday. Mack also said they asked Monroe if he wanted to move to defense and Monroe declined saying he wanted to be an offensive player.
What the hell. He was moved from CB to WR to RB during his 1st 2 years on campus. When did he move back to WR?
Just put the kid on the field somewhere and let him play! Even if he's used as a decoy.
