Country Road, Take Me to the NFL

Slaton took it to the Dawgs in the Sugar Bowl. Two touchdowns against the SEC team that day in 2006.

The game in Morgantown, W.Va., on Sept. 6 just got a little less daunting for the Auburn Tigers: West Virginia’s running back Steve Slaton has decided to enter the draft.

The War Eagle Reader would like to wipe its brow, go “Whew!” and wish Steve the best in the NFL.

Slaton ran for 3,923 yards and scored 55 touchdowns in three seasons at West Virginia. Slaton gained more than 1,000 yards on the ground in each of his years with the Mountaineers.

Update*** Ditto for Darren McFadden and Felix Jones.

    The thought of facing White and Devine still makes my stomach churn. Devine is probably better then Slayton anyway.

    …..Yeah, I thought the Mountaineer offense picked it up a step AFTER Slaton left with an injury, against Chokelahoma.
