Report: Matt Rhule looking to play Shi Smith at RB some plays

NGL, loved pretty much every pick of the draft outside of the long snapper, and I thought at the time the TMJ pick may have been the best value pick of our class and possibly of the entire draft, but since the season started TMJ hasn't got much action his way...  and even when TMJ had been in there, he hadnt really flashed much, although Darnold has missed him on some big plays.  But when Shi has played, both in preseason and on Sunday, there is something about him, even just the way he moves.  It's like a surging electricity bubbling beneath the surface, waiting to erupt.  I even said in the game thread on his reverse that I thought it was DJ Moore.  There's something special about him, and I can definitely see elements of Samuel in him.  Smitty loves him too, and I can see a bit of that edge/playmaking in him, too.

Looking forward to seeing more of him.

As a Gamecock, I can say that he was literally their only weapon last year, so he got a ton of usage similar to Curtis Samuel. But, he is a more refined WR than Samuel was coming out of college. The guy can ball and I’m excited to see what he can do.

If Sam continues to poop the bed he'll be handing it of to DJ, Chubba, Smith, and whoever else wants to give RB a try. Rhule will put us in Wildcat before he let's Sam toss a bunch of picks again. If Sam shows any hint of putting on his interception man cape Rhule is going to pull the plug. Rhule can't handle watching interceptions and turnovers, he'll drop dead on the field from stress.

I'd love to see this offence running a Wildcat.

The Oline can't hold up when there's a semblance of balance. Imagine what happens if the opposition knows you're going to run the ball every down.

We'd end the game with negative yards.

Smith is too small to be used as a HB. Hopefully they will use him to his abilities and not try to make him CMC lite. 

yeah, I mean Curtis was actually a RB in college.  We can't just use him like Curtis.  But I think you could dress up the run game a little with him.  Some end around action whether it be real or not just to give some aid to Chuba by presenting it.   Maybe a screen here or a pop pass here or there.

Imo if you are going to do that then you can use Robbie or Moore. I would like to see them make it a priority to get the ball in a playmakers hands. Especially Anderson who seems to be in slump.
