Is this a case of Warr being a huge surprise and being impressive or of Wales not meeting expectations? If neither are being overly impressive should we expect Ferby to see some time as a backup this year and not get to redshirt?

No, different players. Even though Warr is small, he's a guy that's good between the tackles. Wales is more of a shifty, explosive-type runner, much better on outside runs, catching the ball outside, or moved in-motion to receiver. Lets him take advantage of his shiftiness in a one-on-one matchup against a defender.To be honest, I don't know what they'll do with Ferby. Just going by the eye-test, I can't see how he wouldn't get carries this year. But he also has a fragile history, might be best to keep his body away from game-action for a while if WKU can afford it . I think they can afford it, but I guess we'll see.I'm not big on Lock as of today, he's down the chart. Always has time to improve though.

I went up top to shoot the 4th qt and It was drizzling cold almost icy rain and like a fool..I turn the phone straight up and down. But Wales had a couple runs like this last year.Unlike AA, and Bobby, Wales has that break away speedwww.youtube.com/watch?v=YbVswJ88unU
Yeah good stuff, this is basically what Wales is there for. That shiftiness on the outside, explosiveness is needed on passing downs to try to make a guy miss, get a long gain, and keep moving the chains. And he's really good at that, but it's just not something you try to do every down.
