The Texas Longhorns will run the ball, if nothing else this season.
As much as Mack Brown and his staff say they are seeking balance in their offense, which is undeniably true, everyone knows the bread-and-butter of the offense today is the running game.
In a look into what the Texas ground game boasts, we will dive into short profiles for each tailback.
Incumbents Malcolm Brown and Joe Bergeron look to take the brunt of the load, but there are plenty of touches and carries for a committee of seniors, D.J. Monroe and Jeremy Hills, and freshmen talents, Johnathan Gray and Daje Johnson.
With every back bringing different qualities to the table, the Longhorns are in a position to approach the running game with diversity, balance and freshness.
