"There's no doubt he's faster," Oklahoma running backs coach Cale Gundy said of Chris Brown. "His 40 times show it. And I think you will see a difference on game day."
Brown often plays second fiddle to DeMarco Murray on draft day.  But if he is around in the mid-rounds, he is a great value pick.   Tue, Aug 25, 2009 11:00:00 AM

Oklahoma running backs DeMarco Murray and Chris Brown were held out of contact drills in Monday night's practice.  Both participated in conditioning drills, however.

Murray has been taking it easy due to a tender hamstring and there are no health issues with Brown.  In a nutshell it looks like coach Bob Stoops doesn't want to see either of his star backs get injured in practice.

The Oklahoman has a of series of articles in Sunday's edition profiling the how many college football teams are moving away from the workhorse running back and to a two-back system.

Of the teams that split up their carries, Oklahoma's Chris Brown (1,220) and DeMarco Murray (1,002), led the way in yardage in 2008. Much to the delight of fantasy owners, the duo should lead the way again in 2009.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops has no desire to have running back Chris Brown "get banged around" this spring and will hold him out of most contact. The same goes for Mossis Madu.

With DeMarco Murray also sitting out the spring after having surgery on his hamstring in December, 2008 recruits Justin Johnson and Jermie Calhoun will get plenty of work. One of these guys will be the back of the future for the Sooners.

With DeMarco Murray sidelined due to a bruised knee, running back Chris Brown rushed for 122 yards and three scores on 27 carries in the win over Missouri. Mossis Madu added another 114 yards and three scores on 15 carries.

The duo's efforts will likely carry the Sooners into the National Championship game against Florida. The BCS bowls will be announced Sunday night at 8 p.m.

DeMarco Murray may have been the better producer in terms of yardage this afternoon, but junior Chris Brown was the major force on the ground for the Sooners with 13 rushes for 117 yards and three touchdowns on the day.

It's a crap shoot for fantasy owners nowadays when it comes to the OU backfield; after all, both Murray and Brown are outstanding when it comes to production carrying the ball. Still, looking at the numbers from a trending perspective, Brown appears to be favored a bit more within the red zone, something clearly proven given his performance this afternoon.

The big name for the day this afternoon as Oklahoma took on the Kansas State Wildcats was sophomore tailback DeMarco Murray, who on the day combined for 167 all-purpose offensive yards and four touchdowns on the day. Still, fantasy owners will want to recognize junior Chris Brown who saw a season-best 20 carries for 142 yards rushing and a touchdown in addition to Murray's totals today in the 58-35 win for the Sooners.

Murray continues to lead the Sooners' in overall rushing numbers, but Brown's performance today places him comfortably in the same company as the sophomore OU standout at tailback.

Sam Bradford may have had a career day against the TCU Horned Frogs, but certainly not Sooners' tailbacks Chris Brown and DeMarco Murray; on the day, the #1 defensive unit against the run held two of the Big XII's most talent rushers to just 53 yards rushing and a touchdown -- and this on 26 carries.

TCU is no joke on defense, so these types of numbers by Brown and Murray honestly aren't surprisingly. Fantasy owners should have no worries; both will bounce back and in a hurry, particularly as the Sooners prepare for Baylor next weekend.
