Here's a start: Stop giving touches to your 4th best RB. Amare Jones showed more in his half a dozen touches than Huderson has all season. 11 looks like he would be dynamic if put in space (screen, reverse anyone?).
And PARTICULARLY in short yardage situations: Give it to the bigger backs who also hit the holes faster and harder - 10 and 6.

Yeah, how about play Dauphine a plurality or even a majority of the snaps.

I can't figure out a reason for Dauphine and Bradwell not to get 90%+ of all our RB touches while games are still in doubt.

I don't understand Huderson either. Dauphine we might see more of down the stretch. They've been trying to keep him healthy.

When I am officiating in the middle occasionally there are those running backs that make me think “man I’m glad I don’t have to tackle that kid”. Bradwell is one of those kind of backs.

I love the guy, but if he can't stay healthy for more than 8 plays a game, he should probably just stick to track

I’m guessing the play Saturday when Dauphine whiffed on a guy that sacked McMillan is a good indicator of why he’s not getting more reps, especially on passing downs. His durability is an issue but if he can’t pick up blitzes he’s not going to be on the field more than the others.

I think Bradwell should be the #1 guy. He’s got speed and power.

Good news is that we should be able to run on 5 of the next 6 opponents (I don’t know what USF’s run defense is like).

Bradwell is our best overall RB. Unfortunately, we run an offense where our best RB gets 30% of the carries. Our let's take our 2 best ball carriers in Bradwell and Dauphine which are by far the best 2 at the moment. They have 47% of the carries. I don't understand that at all.

We also have 2 receptions by running backs this year. 1 by Huderson for 21 yards (the swing pass we all were amazed was in the playbook) and then 1 by Amare for 11. In today's game, that is just really hard to believe. 2 receptions!?!?!?!
