Gotta give a shout out to my boy 'Shard for his game last night and his season so far. If we could pick him up in the 2nd round I'd be one happy Illini/Cowboy fan.
'Shard went off yesterday. 17 carries 201 yards 2 TD's (64, 35). That puts Rashard Medenhall at 1314 yards for the year and 16 TD's on the year so far. Not only does he put up huge numbers take a look at this quote from him about yesterday: By the way Walter is his older brother.
But the junior from Niles West sat down early in the fourth quarter, to let Walter play. Walter responded with 57 yards on four carries. ''The coaches wanted me to go back in and get the season rushing record,'' Rashard said. ''I told them I'd rather have Walter go in there. That was great to see him break some runs. I'm so happy for him.''
