Last week, I took a look at the quarterbacks who were most likely to break the 3,000-yard mark in the Big Ten in 2012. As we all know, the 1,000-yard mark has long been the measuring stick for running backs. Getting there is not quite as tough as it used to be.

Still, it requires staying healthy at a position where one takes a lot of abuse and getting the opportunity for lots of carries.
