In case anyone forgot, or is so new to ISU football that you haven't learned about Coprich yet, a testament to how great he was is the fact that James Robinson's career rushing stats at ISU came up something like 800 yards and 15 touchdowns shy of Coprich's school records.

What took so long !!;)

Absolutely loved watching him play .. his talent, hisdrive, his energy and positive attitude was always on full display. I recall how our pass game just dissolved into nothing in 2013 ... and he just kept plugging away on a 5-6 team. The only difference between him and JR was JR's size .. or Marshaun would have gotten much longer looks in NFL.

Still nor sure how Spack, et al found and got him. We were quite lucky to have him for 4 years.

p.s. wished like crazy we didn't burn his RS in 2012 returning kicks once in a while. We would have had Marshaun and JR in same backfield in 2016 !!!!

Too bad JR didn't have a QB that was even a little bit of a threat to help open things up for him. Roberson/Coprich were a threat to score on every snap. Good times!

This is so true. Though the 2018 season, Davis started strong, then faded. But JR also had another very capable RB in Markel Smith.

But his 3 game playoff run in 2019 was beyond incredible .. 41 for 297, then 37 for 210, then 24 for 94. Even the NDSU game, he started very strong in Q1 with 7 carries for 45 yard, but rest of way just 17 carries for 49 yards .. which included 14 yard loss. Bryce was just 13 of 26 in 3 games combined .. did great job managing games and staying out of trouble for most part .. but everyone in the stadium knew JR was going to carry almost the entire load.
