We are going to be thin... Looks like dat will get more carries.
Dior Mathis to RB? Any other players that may get a look there? Imagine - 1 injury to Barner and we could be in a lot of trouble in regards to depth

So how mean does that give us now? At RB
This is troubling.... I really hope Marshall is up to the task.
Wow ths is a huge loss tra Is such a baller l am sure that Addison/ Marshall are the real deals good luck to him
Huff will no doubt get more carries from the backfield.
No he won't, unless you think a FR can play WR better than a 2 year starter. Our O can get an avg RB 1000yds, we need our best WR at WR. Besides Ford is a better RB than Huff.

Injuries could hurt us since we will be thin, but there are other options. Lyerla was a running back and could be an amazing power back in short yardage. Addison has the skills and size to play there and as mentioned above Forde can step in. I believe we will be fine.
Damn. I noticed his tweets being kind onbitter for the last month.
Seemed like he felt he was being overlooked. But man... We just lost our starting RB and only gained 1 in recruiting. If he were going to shine, he's in a prime position to do so this year.
Good luck to him.
I don't think we are amazingly thin. Short maybe 1 true RB but lots of young speedsters. I would not overlook Forde, kid is a baller and will get some quality carries now with Tra gone. I do think we need to lock up another RB in 2013 and maybe even a JC guy. Hopefully Marshall is ready to contribute.
Ducks seem to losing rb's to transfer a lot. There would have been plenty of carries for a true sophomore next year.
Justin - any thoughts on reasoning? Playing time? any lingering issues with Lyles?
