Michael Lev of the Orange County Register ponders the role of USC’s running backs for the coming college football season in his “10 things we learned in spring” series, which has Allen Bradford atop the depth chart and C.J. Gable potentially out of the mix in terms of serious carries in 2010.
Lane Kiffin on running back by committee:
“We would rather not be in a big committee thing. As a running back, you get better throughout the game because you get used to what’s going on…how is the defense playing, are we able to get the backside cuts, how are the D-tackles playing the different blocks? You have to get a rhythm, and so I would rather find one or two guys. So that’s our job, to figure out who those guys are going to be.”
