Duck Stud: Morning Mud

Steve Maher wonders if Kenjon Barner can handle the running load for the entire season?

What many forget about Barner is his consistency. Over the course of the past three seasons, he has averaged 6.2, 6.1 and 6.0 yards per carry. James, over his career, averaged 6.6 yards.

And if the guy who wears No. 24 gets anywhere close to 250 carries in 2012-13 — James averaged 257 carries a season over the past three — the rest of the Pac-12 should be really, really worried.

Oh, I think Kenjon will be just fine. He's simply not as shifty or fast as LaMichael...that's why LaMichael started. But, he's quality, and he'll have guys behind him that will keep him fresh, the same way he kept LaMichael fresh. I would be pretty surprised if Kenjon got as many carries as LaMichael though. Word.
