    Quite an accomplishment! Though the guy that was going to win tripped and fell on his face, still great when you have a football player that can win a national track competition. He's not really a sprinter, but very quick and agile. Had top marks in the shuttle run and broad jump. He and Addison could be a great duo! And this was not a college meet, this was the pros. He's 19 and going against guys in their mid 20s

    Next year we may have close to, if not THE top group of RB's as well as WR's in the nation.

    The Redshirt Freshman WR I'm most optimistic about is Darren Carrington. He played this Spring with a cast on his hand so he obviously wasn't at his best, but I'm really looking forward to seeing what he brings this fall.

    Although I rarely agree with Stomp he's correct here, Carrington has amazing body control. One pass in the spring game with a cast he scored and got NFL feet in the end zone for 6! Now you take Carrington, Addison, J Brown, Stanford and Ofodile and you've got 15 to 20 yard routes all over the field. These are some very talented and above average DUCK height receivers..... This next few years look great here and with Taj, Rolls, Tyner and James good luck stopping this offense!

    Except Addison might be out for the season. Also not sure about our RB core. Marshall has looked very average compared to what we're used to seeing out of oregon RB. I think Tyner will be very good.

    Last season Marshall averaged 6.2 yards per carry... he's the only returning back in the Pac 12 to break 1000 yards. Tyner also averaged 6.2 yards per carry. For his career, Kenyon Barner averaged 6.2 yards per carry. LMJ averaged 6.6 ypc for his.

    beauty continues to be in the eyes of the beholder...
