One touch against BC last year. No rushing attempts. Only 3 targets in the passing game. Yeah, that's totally on the defense and not on the offensive coordinator. You get your best player the ball. The last half of last season Drinkwitz basically forgot about our best player.

^That's literally one game.

On the season Samuels averaged 6.8 touches per game. There were 5 games after the BC game. His number of touches per game were: 7, 9, 6, 5, 8. The average over those 5 games was 7 touches per game, which was higher than his average on the season.

Now look at production. Before the BC game(7 games), he had 52 touches for 7 total TDs. After the BC game he had 35 touches for 7 total TDs(one passing).

You picked the ONE anomaly on his season, his usage didn't drop off down the stretch at all.

Canada was the one that would randomly go away from Samuels, Drink didn't do that at all.

He also had tons less touches last year compare to his sophomore year (121 to 88.). That alone says he was underutilized.

He is/was our best player. He should be getting at least 10 touches a game. During the three game Clemson, Louisville, BC stretch last year he had 1 carry. 1. There is no reason for that.

Ima go out on a limb and say our 1200 yard rusher had more impact on Jsams touches than Drink's poor memory. But hate let the irrational hate flow through you

^^^ also the first half of the season featured all of our shitty OOC opponents.

he had 8 catches for 100 yards against clemson, possibly the best defense he'll face in his 4 years here. he did not carry the ball that game, but let's not pretend he was ignored.

also, when comparing his '15 numbers to his '16 numbers, Dayes was out for like half of 2015 so that probably meant JaySam was targeted more in the passing game and had more carries than if Dayes had been healthy the whole season (and yes, JaySam was still under-utilized in '15...we all remember the bowl game). but on your overall point...yes, let's get JaySam as many touch as we possibly can. i do agree.

Wasn't JaySam banged up last year as well? Thought I'd heard something regarding that and then spent the month before the bowl getting healthy. He got his touches in the bowl game.

JSam getting less touches is more about a change in scheme than anything else.

I mean we had Dayes all year(JSam got more carries when Dayes got hurt year before), Hines playing well, Harmon playing well, Louis playing well, etc. Our offense is about distributing the ball to play-makers and keeping the defense off balance. I'd say JSam averaging 6-9 touches per game was solid to keep him healthy and not so predictable.

I imagine his usage will be somewhere around 8-12 touches per game this year.
