While a number of college coaches are in the process of preparing ways to replace their stud running back from the 2011 college football season, LSU's Les Miles has to be sitting back with a smile on his face.
LSU had four running backs who combined to run for more than 2,300 yards and 30 touchdowns last season, and fortunately for Miles and this LSU team, all four are returning in 2012.
Spencer Ware, Michael Ford, Alfred Blue and Kenny Hilliard should form what many believe to be the top backfield in the nation this season.
The question is, how does Miles go about spreading the love between four talented backs, each one of which could be a starter on just about any team in America?
Let's figure it out as we go ahead and project stats for the Tigers' superb committee of running backs in the upcoming season.
