Ladies and gentlemen, the truth about the Oregon Ducks' running back situation this upcoming season is that they are thin at the position.
Not thin on talent—they are HUGE on talent—but thin on depth. As in, what if Kenjon Barner and/or De'Anthony Thomas get hurt?
It's been a while since we've seen an actual game, so let me remind you that the sport is violent. And that there is a slim possibility that Oregon's Pac-12 opponents might be slightly interested in knocking the Ducks off their three-peat championship post.
Who usually gets hit the most? Bingo.
Let's analyze the situation.
