    DuckTown, I think Marrow will be a regular in the power back / short yardage situations.

    I'm glad someone else notice that other than myself. Braylon looked to be the more complete back of the 3 last season, though they all didn't have many opportunities to show their worth. But Braylon showed the vision, speed, & power to be an every down back. His injury came at the worst time for him last season. During his short stint on the other side of the ball, Ameer (whom was crowned the speed back in this thread), quoted that he was shocked at how fast Braylon really was. Said that he knew he was fast but didn't realize he "had it like that".
    Full disclosure: I grew up in an era of Husker football when it was blasphemous for a coach to say he was "spooked" out of calling a run play. Of course, that was when hard-nosed running defined the program.

    It's difficult to establish a strong run game without firm resolve. Daily resolve. In too many instances such as when Nebraska calls for passes on third-and-3 in four-down territory a lack of commitment is evident.
