TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida States running game is largely defined by Dalvin Cook, but with the emergence of other players the Seminoles are showing they might have one of the deepest ground games in the Atlantic Coast Conference.The 12th-ranked Seminoles are third in the ACC and 22nd in the nation in rushing offense, averaging 244.8 yards per game. They gained 478 yards in last Saturdays win over South Florida, which was just a yard off the school record.The ground game resurgence could bode well for FSU (3-1, 0-1 ACC) on Saturday as it faces a North Carolina defense that is last in the conference in rushing defense.I hope we can keep it going like that, and you can rotate those guys that much, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. That allows us to control the clock, control the ball, move the ball, do the things we need to do.Through the first four games, the Seminoles are running the ball 58.5 percent of the time, which would be a highest percentage in Fishers seven years as coach. From 2010-15, the run percentage was 52.3 percent.Most of the focus remains on Cook, who is coming off a career-best 267 yards against USF.The junior said he laughed when some wondered why he didnt have a 100-yard game the first three weeks. He also added that last weeks game put some questions about any injuries to rest.People get caught up in the stats. Theres nothing wrong with me, he said. I know the runs I make on the practice field. The first three games we were one man or one trip away from a long run.While Cook has emerged as more of a receiving threat out of the backfield, other players have stepped up in the ground game to keep Cooks touches at a manageable level.Jacques Patrick is averaging 6.2 yards per carry and is coming off his second career 100-yard game. The sophomore has emerged as a more physical runner compared to last year and has done a better job of breaking tackles.Patrick also credited Cook for helping him develop into a better player.I feel like I complement him well, Patrick said. He goes out there and gashes the defense. And I gash the defense too, that makes it easier for him. Thats the biggest thing.Freshman Deondre Francois has been used more on read options the past couple of weeks as he matures more as a dual-threat quarterback. His 38-yard run against USF was the longest running touchdown by a Florida State QB in eight years.Fullback Freddie Stevenson has also gotten more into the mix. The senior came into the season with just 12 carries and a touchdown but already has seven carries and three scores in the three games he has played.That has all translated to Cook carrying the ball on just 43.1 percent of the Seminoles run plays. Last year in the 12 games he played, Cooks number was called on 58.6 percent of those plays.Besides the depth in backs, the offensive line has started to gain more consistency in run blocking and resembles the unit they were last year. Center Alec Eberle is hoping the confidence they gained last week can carry over to the rest of the season.Its awesome to know that at any moment we can run the ball or pick it up and pass it, he said. It gives us a good confidence boost and it gives the o-line a confidence boost after all the turmoil and adversity weve been through as an o-line, struggling at first, going out there and putting up 400 yards is pretty big.After facing Georgias Nick Chubb in the opener and Pittsburghs James Conner last week, North Carolina (3-1, 1-0) faces another talented run game on Saturday. The Tar Heels are allowing 240.2 rushing yards per game, which is second-worst among Power Five conference teams.North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said Florida State is the deepest running attack they have faced because of what Francois can do behind center.Defensive coordinator Gene Chizik added Cook is different from the other backs they have faced because of his speed.Hes got really good vision, not that the other two dont, but he makes really good jump cuts and cuts on a dime, Chizik said. Hes powerful when he needs to be powerful. Hes very fast when he gets in the open field and hes got great vision and makes very elusive, quick cuts. Mack Hollins Jersey. Tests earlier this week revealed a Grade 2 left hamstring strain for Sabathia, who was hurt in last Fridays start against San Francisco. Its an injury that will require about eight weeks to heal. He finished a disappointing campaign just 14-13 with a career-worst 4. Derek Barnett Womens Jersey. The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. Sidney Jones Youth Jersey. If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. Mack Hollins Youth Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. Kudos if the past few days of professional wrestling havent made you feel like the victim of one of Cesaros giant swings.Seriously, what a whirlwind. Just three days ago, Finn Balor, WWEs worshipped Demon King, left the Barclays Center as the inaugural Universal champion in his first marquee event. Less than 24 hours later, he was forced to relinquish his belt after suffering a dislocated shoulder, an injury that could keep him sidelined for up to six months.Certainly, it isnt the first time a champ has surrendered his title because of health setbacks (see: Seth Rollins and Daniel Bryan), but the timing could not have been worse. Balor, NXTs most decorated titleholder, was to be Raws centerpiece for years to come.An abrupt, disappointing end to an exciting new storyline, yes, but it was far from the end of a series of events that left us feeling as lost as Heath Slaters contract. At SummerSlam, the U.S. Championship match between Roman Reigns and Rusev never officially started, and the brutal Brock-Lesnar-Randy Orton battle never really ended.So it appears the top brass of the WWE need to scurry to find new feuds and new angles, particularly on Raw. There will be a new Universal champion crowned next Monday, but will this open up a path for more logical, fresh and fun bookings once the dominoes fall? Its hard to say at the moment. Just more than a month after the highly anticipated split-brand draft, some storylines have already become stilted. After a confounding conclusion to SummerSlam, a shakeup is in order.That said, there are a few proposed Raw-SmackDown trades that could energize future plots.Baron Corbin (Raw) for Kevin Owens (SmackDown)Case for Corbin: Hes 6-foot-8 with massive heel potential, but Corbin isnt quite ready to be thrust into the heavyweight/Universal matrix. What he needs is a legitimate beef against a sound star, someone other than the diminutive Kalisto, who promises to be as much of a threat to Corbin as Dean Ambroses potted plant, Mitch. Seriously, can you picture Corbin clashing with Roman Reigns? Earlier in the year, Corbin and Dolph Ziggler engaged in a series of encounters, but the feud did little to propel the status of either. That would undoubtedly change with Reigns, the most polarizing figure in the business, in the picture. Down the road, how about Corbin and Braun Strowman mixing it up in a heated all-heel contest?Case for Owens: Unless KO wins the Universal title Monday in Houston, he will once again be balancing on the precarious line between star and upper mid-carder. Make no mistake: Owens, arguably the best bad guy in the business, belongs in the inner sanctum of stars. The problem is he is going to take a backseat to Seth Rollins, Reigns and Balor on Raw. From the outset of his WWE career, Owens has had remarkable chemistry with almost everyone in the ring, starting with John Cena at Elimination Chamber (and subsequent pay-per-views) in 2015 and the continuation of his long-standing feud against Sami Zayn, which culminated with maybe the match of the year at Battleground last month. Owens current teaming with Chris Jericho is fun, and theres some upside to their partnership, but KO is a singles star, a future champ who could re-establish SmackDowns pecking order.Advantage: Push. The immediate returns suggest SmackDown gets the better of the trade with Owens, the more groomed in-ring performer, but Corbin is well on his way to becoming a bona fide behemoth.Cesaro (Raw) for Kane (SmackDown)Case for Cesaro: Since his return from shoulder surgery a day after Wrestlemania, Cesaro has been booked with little semblance of strategy to suggest hell be a perennial top-tier star. True, he was given a new James Bond-style entrance and thrust into a No. 1 contenders Fatal 4-way match the first day he was back, but its been largely downhill and uninspiring for him since. A best-of-seven battle against Sheamus? Eh. A best-of-one would have been more palatable. Cesaro himself -- perhaps staged but with more than a hint of truth -- expressed displeasure after being drafted to Raw. How fun would it be to see Cesaro feud with Bray Wyatt on SmackDown? Cesaro would also be a prime contender to takes Mizs intercontinental title, a championship he almost won at Payback and Extreme Rules earlier this year.Case for Kane: Its hard to say how much in-ring exposure Kane will get at this point in hhis career.dddddddddddd. Any exposure he does garner likely will be relegated to Director of Operations work. But Kane, one of the cornerstones in the Attitude era, remains one of the most amusing personalities in the business. He worked brilliantly with Seth Rollins, and though we are a little hesitant to rehash familiar storylines, this dynamic worked. How about ... Coach Kane?Advantage: SmackDown. Cesaro is younger and a largely unfulfilled talent. A weaker SmackDown roster gives him more opportunity to shine.Sasha Banks (Raw) for Natalya & cash (SmackDown)Case for Banks: With Raw acquiring the effervescent Bayley, the flagship show currently owns the top three women in the business, Charlotte, Banks and Bayley -- a glaring inequity. With Banks out of action for a month to heal an ailing back, Charlotte and Bayley will establish the most compelling womens rivalry in some time. That leaves Banks, whose reign as the womens champ lasted less than a month, disenfranchised. Although SmackDown has a plethora of solid womens performers, none rises to the level of Banks, who could easily contend for the shows impending womens championship. We could see Banks turning heel and setting up multi-PPV showdowns against Becky Lynch and Nikki Bella for SmackDown supremacy in the near future.Case for Natalya: She has the pedigree and name recognition, but the fact remains that Natalya has failed to find a permanent identity. She has come oh-so-close to holding titles on NXT and WWE but has ultimately come up short. As a manager or tag-team partner, Natalya appears destined to be a lifelong sidekick, even when paired with her 59-year-old uncle, Bret Hart, as we saw at Payback earlier this year. Still, theres hope for Natalya to remain viable. Raws womens roster is comparably weaker than SmackDowns once you get past Charlotte and Bayley (and for now, Banks), which would give Natalya more opportunity to shine as a mid-card fixture.Advantage: Not even close. SmackDown wins by a landslide in landing Banks, which is why we offered cash in the transaction.Neville (Raw) for The Vaudevillians (SmackDown)Case for Neville: If defying gravity is his shtick, what better than to move Neville to a brand run by the daredevil himself, Shane-O-Mac? Despite his high-flying theatrics, there has to be concern that Neville will be consigned to a glorified jobber one of these days, given his trajectory on a bloated Raw roster. Wins over Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, riveting as they might be, wont do much to propel Neville out of mid-card purgatory. Lets be real: Hes too good to be part of Raws future cruiserweight division.Case for The Vaudevillains: Similar to Neville, The Vaudevillains debuted in the WWE with a good deal of interest. Their throwback gimmick feels somewhere between spooky and kooky. But after vying for the tag-team titles, which culminated in a championship match earlier this year at Extreme Rules, the duo -- Aiden English and Simon Gotch -- has found it difficult connecting with the crowd. But making the move to Raw would open a path the Vaudevillains currently dont have on SmackDown, which has an overflow of tag teams. If anything, they could take the spot of the newly retired Dudley Boyz.Advantage: Close call, but Raw would acquire a viable, talented team in The Vaudevillains worthy of an occasional tag-team title shot. As awesome as Nevilles Red-Arrow finisher is, its hard to imagine him as a legit top-level star.Heath Slater for a box of Booty OsWeirdly, Slater has had just about as many cheers as anyone on either roster, but theres some irony there, of course. Where will Slater land? That has been the?No. 1 question since draft day. Whether WWE intended or not, Slaters promos on Raw and SmackDown have been outstanding. Who doesnt love a bleeding heart simply trying to feed his stable of kids? Could Slater just live in limbo for the remainder of his career?As for Booty Os, theyre delicious and nutritious. But heres the kicker: They arent cheap. The lowest weve seen for one box is $12.99 -- and theyre not even gluten-free. On Amazon Prime, youd have to shell out upwards of $45. That probably isnt in Slaters budget until he signs that contract.Advantage: Booty Os. Its all about the power of positivity.
