    Too late for that kind of adjustment ... barring horrible health news now through the season.

    In regards to the depth at RB .. right now that is a good thing, lots of fresh and eager legs to fill in for ARob when needed.

    As far at the WR position, we need many quality WRs for this system, you really can't have too many and I would say we have enough to make the right decision on the lineups.

    Re: too much depth

    We don't have "too much depth" at either of these positions right now, we're just beginning to look like a team with Big XII depth.

    Re: too much depth

    I'd LOVE to see some of this supposed depth at the WR position do something. Every year we talk about how deep we are there, and every year that position as a whole completely underperforms. A lot of the passing woes last year fell on the WRs. They need to improve this year in a big way.

    I really think that Johnson and Darks being healthy this year will lead to big break out years for both of them.

    Great point, no need for talk of "too much depth" until we start producing NFL prospects and our underclassmen are bailing. Otherwise there will be plenty of opportunity for the talented and hardworking.

    Re: too much depth

    I remember this time last year everyone was talking about the great depth that we had at receiver and running back (ARob, Blankenship, Williams, and it seems horrible but I can't remember the name of the kid that transferred) and we ended up really hurting in both places. ARob got hurt and no one really could step up and fill in. At the end of the year, our best reveiver ended up being a guy that no one had even heard of in Jake Williams because our "great depth" didn't produce at all.

    Getting back to the original question; RB, WR, OL, DL and CB are all positions where there is no such thing as too much depth.

    Re: too much depth

    You guys are forgetting that with our depth at WR was severely impacted by Money, Darks, and Johnson all getting digned up (Money broke his leg after a great start as well). Lenz and Williams were the surprise guys.

    Hopefully it's making for some good competition in practices. I think a clear starting 11 makes for less competition. I want everyone believing they should be the #1 guy.

    Re: too much depth

    The offense is going to be on the field so much this year that they'll all be dead tired from all the carries and receptions that each of them are getting.

    youre right. and when the system sometimes requires 5 wide receivers on one play- its tough to ask your 8th man to step in and be a playmaker. No one in the whole country has "good" players 5-8 guys deep.

    I could definitely handle ARob getting a few less carries a game if it means he plays healthy all 12-13 games. He'd have been approaching AA type #s last year if he could have done that, certainly unanimous All Big 12 last year if he doesn't miss time.

    Re: too much depth

    For a spread offense, I don't think you can have 'too much depth' at WR or RB.
