Schiano expects four tailbacks to replace Ray Rice
On the first play of Rutgers' intrasquad scrimmage last weekend, sophomore tailback Mason Robinson took a handoff and raced 70 yards for a touchdown. A few plays later, freshman Jourdan Brooks burst through the line and raced 65 yards for a score, covering the last 40 yards or so without one of his shoes.
There's probably a good chance it will be tailback-by-committee. The good thing is we've got really good competition between good players. The bad thing is we lost the all-time leading rusher in Rutgers' history.
