The Backdrop -
With a 7-5 record, ASU is most likely headed to one of the generic BillŐs Muffler Shop Bowl games. The coaches are already delivering the soft-landing rhetoric about extra practices. There will be no mention of the honor of playing for the Golden Muffler Trophy.
Assume are Eno Benjamin. School season rushing record holder. You are the only non-freshman RB on the roster. You have carried your team to victories all season. NFL scouts think you are ready. Early round draft money is only months away.
Are you coming back for you senior season?
Do you risk injury for a meaningless bowl, or do you knowingly leave your team without an experienced RB?
Assume you are Herm Edwards. Assume Eno walks. Do you activate RBs from the practice squad and try to play your ball control offense with rookies and little used Carter? Or do you change the nature of your attack and go to a spread and feature Daniels, Aiyuk, Darby, Williams and the young speedy receivers?
