Doug Hogue Had A Pretty Nice Little Saturday

I was hanging out with Doug Hogue Friday night when I asked him what his plans were for the weekend.

"Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe make ten tackles, eight solo ones, two interceptions, half a sack and lead Syracuse to a monumental upset over West Virginia, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time."

I guess he had time after all. And for his troubles Doug Hogue was named the Walter Camp Football Foundation National Defensive Player of the Week and the College Football Performance Award for linebacker of the wee.

The Walter Camp national honor is the second for Hogue. Last season he was recognized for his play against Rutgers when he had seven tackles, including an SU single-game record 6.5 for a loss of yards, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble.

Through seven games this season Hogue has 49 tackles, including 4.5 for a loss of yards and two sacks, two interceptions, three quarterback hurries, one pass breakup and one blocked kick.

It's been a long time since Doug was one of our platooning running backs but a performance like this requires us to pull out an oldie-but-goodie in his honor:
