Given that we may lose one to child porn/sex/assault/not an assault/threesome/sex/video/phone-gate...

Who do we have left to run the rock?
 
I don't think we have any IBacks anymore really ;)


Mills will be a good one, D1/P5 proven and a power back with good quickness and speed
Mazour more athletic than some think, very quick in the first 10 yards, but I see him as more of a change of pace
We saw some good things from Bradley his frosh year, good burst, solid built runner, can make a guy miss to get free. I'm interested to see what he did with his RS season. He's likely the next man up
Rahmir Johnson will be great, but might need a year
Miles Jones is dynamic and can play - but is more of a combo guy IMO

would suck to have Washington out, but I think Bradley can be quite good, and would be the guy getting a lot of those carries

Washington is head and shoulders above all the backs, too bad his pics didn't reflect the same.

Frost said he thinks Miles is an every down back, my guess it would be him and then by committee until a solid #2 is found, and my guess it will be Rahmir. Hoping MW will be with us still.

A bunch of 2-year olds that haven't raced yet but which have some Derby potential, a few 3-year olds who couldn't find their way to the Derby with MapQuest but might win a few lower stakes, and a claimer or two...that describes our stable.

Maybe that is true. But guys like Bradley have already proven they can play. Mazour, Mills, and Johnson might just take you to task. You seem to disregard our RB staple/staff but they may prove you and a few others wrong. Let's see how it plays out... GBR

So far I'm not seeing whatever secret sauce is held by the runningbacks coach under Frost. His choices last year were little more than underwhelming. Probably the weakest link in the O for development on face value. i hope he gets something figured out, because Ozigbo #3 saving the second half of the season doesn't happen without Bell's transfer...

I hope Miles outshines the rest of the itty bitty runningback committee. It bothers me that 'I-Back U' has a stable of midgets and we expect a return to greatness. Mazour is a warrior, but he's no power runner. Bradley is developing well, but the staff has been lukewarm and I could see him leave. That leaves the new guy. Absolutely worst case scenario when it should not be.

Since DO had already passed Bell on the depth chart and pretty much caused Bell to leave, i'm pretty sure his breakout does happen. Making DO a thousand yard guy in half a season is pretty good coaching compared to what he experienced (and put on film) prior to this staff. If that is the "weakest link", NU is in great shape.
