How many of you would like to see him get some carries today? Jabba was recruiting him really hard after Tress was let go but Urban came in and stomped on fat boy's dream of getting him. I was at the Illinois game and watched him play late. I know it was garbage time but he racked up some big yards on one drive.
I feel Hyde has earned majority of the carries, as has Smith.
I for one, am hoping we don't have to use Dunn today. The kid is talented, he'll get his time in a couple years. I'd like to see Hyde tear it up today.
Hyde, ride Hyde big time, he gets better with more carries and wears defenses down.
Then mix in Smith, we get a Penn State run game performance out of Hyde, Smith and Miller, we win in this cold weather.
The only way he gets his hands on the ball is on special teams....unless, we are blowing them out and they give him a taste late.

I agree completely with OhioSt83. Go with Hyde, Smith, and Miller to victory.
If Dunn has studied/mastered the playbook AND knows his assignments AND the coaches are satisfied with him, it would be great to include him in the rotation. However, I'm content with the proven runners - Hyde, Smith, Hyde, Miller, and more Hyde (to preserve Miller).
Would love to see him get carries today as we will most likely be up by 20 before he would get significant playing time.
Is Dunn healthy and ready to go? Thought he was hurt in practice during the bye week.
Not only would I like to see him get some carries. I would love to see big mouth Kalis lose a little blood on the field.
I don't think Urban is going to pull the starters regardless of score... seriously. We may see some of the normal rotations and a couple of guys may get a play here and there to participate in the rivalry, but I fully expect petal to the metal for the entire game.
Let's see if Brax can start his drive to Troy Smith-like wolverine slaying status today. My prediction is a 2004 Troy Smith performance.
KEY MATCHUP in this game. Stifle Gardner's dream about being a good Qb with coverage from Roby an Howard, and an actual DL that in his face when he throws. Shaz keying on Denard and he's one shot away from coming out. Toussaint is out..... Lets go boys, lets get this win and spend and entire offseason with unbelievable momentum
when we are up and the game is out of hand, run Dunn. Run him when everyone knows that we are going to run him.
We need lots of Hyde with some Smith. I think we can run at -ichigan. I would not run Miller at all in the first series. Start gashing them with Hyde and then hit them with some Miller.
