Everything you say is true, but true freshman running backs succeed throughout college football every year. BB is a jaw-dropping talent and given that we don't exactly have the four horsemen ahead of him, it wouldn't surprise me to see him get more touches than any true frosh under Tedford has.
If Sofele proves he's the total package (as Arrington and Forsett did to keep Marshawn and Jahvid off the field respectively) then Bigelow will have to wait a year to take over.
All of this of course is assuming he's 100%.

how many true freshman have started at a skill position? only ones i can think of are DJ and Keenan.
isi will be the starting back. hoping bigelow is healthy and can come in for 5-15 plays a game.
