"Maybe it is 160 rushes and then more catches. At times you have to remember a shovel pass is really a pass, but it is like a run. I think he could easily touch the ball a couple of hundred times. If Jeremy Smith is playing well and Travis Miller and Dexter Pratt (playing well) then maybe he doesn't have to touch the ball as much," Gundy added.
Gundy feels all the backs will be very involved and he says so far he has noticed that Hunter seems excited about the change in offenses, which for Hunter, is not as much of a difference as some would think.
"I think he is very excited," said Gundy of Hunter, who will be a senior next season. "There is some familiarity and similarity in the running plays to the ones that he is used to in the previous offense. For him to have the opportunity to touch the ball in space is an advantage for our offense and it is an advantage for him."
"It makes me feel a lot different," said Taylor. "Last year I was in there and it was really different because I was the young pup and now I'm the one with all the experience and I'm the one helping guys out."
"I've just always been No. 3 in every sport I played," said Weeden. "I just like the number. When I came here (from pro baseball) I offered Cate $500 for it and he didn't need the money."
It was noticed junior college cornerback Malcolm Murray picked up jersy No. 1 and Gundy was asked if Murray requested it.
"I'm sure he asked, but jersey numbers go through Coach (Joe) DeForest unless it's recruiting and we have to promise number one to four different people then you promise it to four different people," said Gundy. "When they get here you tell them somebody else has it. Most of that was Coach DeForest."
