RUNNING BACKS THRIVE IN TOLEDO’S WEST COAST SYSTEM
     • Throughout his career as a head coach, Bob Toledo has been a running backs’
best friend. Dating back to his days as the head coach at UCLA and through two years
at Tulane, running backs have thrived in his West Coast system as both runners and
receivers. Toledo’s last four prominent running backs- Skip Hicks and DeShaun Fos-
ter at UCLA and Matt Forte and Andre Anderson at Tulane- have combined for 9,808
rushing yards and 1,817 receiving yards.
     Foster registered the most career yards under Toledo with 3,194 rushing yards
and 548 receiving yards for 3,742 total yards, while Forte produced the most single
season yards for a Toledo-led squad with a school record 2,127 rushing yards and 282
receiving yards for 2,409 total yards. Forte’s total remains the sixth-best single season
effort in NCAA history.
     In 2008, Anderson was well on his way to taking his place among Toledo’s great-
est backs before a shoulder injury sidelined him the seventh game.

NEW ORLEANS - André Anderson tallied 135 all-purpose yards and Jeremy Williams snared a
game-high eight passes, but it was not enough as Tulane dropped a 31-10 Homecoming deci-
sion to Conference USA foe Marshall at the Louisiana Superdome.
   The Green Wave dominated the stat sheet, running for 189 yards to Marshall’s 116 and
posting 215 yards through the air to the Herd’s 207 and commanding a 7:44 advantage in time
of possession. The difference in the game, however, was turnovers where Tulane gave away
the ball four times - two fumbles and a pair of interceptions - and Marshall turned that into two
touchdowns and a field goal.
   Trailing 14-7 with 41 seconds left in the first half, Tulane had a chance to tie the ballgame as
the Green Wave drove from its own 18 all the way to the Marshall one. A two-yard Anderson run
gave Tulane third-and-goal from the one, but the Thundering Herd defense stopped Anderson
cold on third down and nailed Antoine Duplessis on fourth down to send the Green Wave away
scoreless despite a 19-play, 81-yard drive that chewed 10:59 off the clock.
   To make matters worse for Tulane, the Marshall offense marched 99 yards down the field
over the next 4:08 and capped the drive when Brian Anderson found Chuck Walker down the
middle for a 21-yard touchdown with 34 seconds left in the opening half to take a commanding
21-7 lead in the ballgame.
   The Green Wave defense held Marshall running back Darius Marshall - the NCAA’s leader
entering the ballgame with a 159.75 yard-per-game average - to just 98 yards on 20 carries.
Marshall, however, found the endzone twice and Anderson had a solid day under center, com-
pleting 18-of-22 passes for 207 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
   Alex Wacha led the defensive effort, tying a career high with eight tackles (five solo, three
assists) and a pass break-up. Travis Burks had seven tackles, and Chinonso Echebelem was
next with six.
   Tulane drew first blood on Saturday, taking the opening kickoff and driving 67 yards on eight
plays for a touchdown. Facing a second-and-six situation from the Herd 32-yard line, Tulane
head coach Bob Toledo reached into his bag of tricks with a swinging gate that saw Joe Kemp
snap the ball to Anderson. Anderson darted left initially before handing off to Jordan Sullen who
ran untouched into the endzone for his first collegiate score.
   While his first trick play turned into a touchdown, Toledo’s second did not fare as well as a
surprise on-side kickoff attempt was recovered by Marshall’s Pete Culicerto at the Tulane 44-
yard line. The Herd took advantage of the short field and Marshall capped a six-play drive with
an 11-yard by the running back of the same name to tie the score.
   The two teams traded punts, and Tulane had something going late in the opening quarter as
the Green Wave converted a pair of third downs to get into Marshall territory. A sack pushed the
Wave back to their own 45 and Albert McClellan forced a fumble on the next play. Ashton Hall
scooped up the ball and run 29 yards to give the Herd a 14-7 lead they would not relinquish.
   Tulane went into the locker room at halftime down by two scores, but it became a three-score
ballgame early in the third quarter as an Anderson fumble gave Marshall the ball at its own
                                                                     38 yard line. Eight plays, 47
