He looked good in that game, I hope he plays well for us. I like that he doesn't do a lot of spinning and dancing in the backfield...

Honestly I didn't think he looked fast at all. USC sucked in that game at tackling. I hope I'm wrong but the nfl will not be that forgiving to him. He needs to attack the defense more and stick and run. His speed won't gain him anything in the nfl cause he won't be the fastest.

his speed is deceptive, he doesn't look fast but he is. he ran a 4.38 at his pro day. hes not gonna be a trucker, his greatest attribute is his vision and catching out of the backfield. he will not make it in pass protection though.

Does Oregon have a different uniform for every game?

Some things I noticed in this video and other videos of his I've watched:

-Excellent vision, sees things happening that are not directly in his line of vision.

-Doesn't often lose yardage.

-Very efficient in movement, doesn't make a lot of unnecessary cuts that hurt momentum.

-Patience, willing to let the blocking develop and see what the play is giving him.

-Needs space to operate, has trouble when the defense is on top of him.

Not to be the buzz kill, but USC's run defense was terrible last year. I wouldn't use his game against them to make judgments on Barner as a player....

They had a better defense than Oklahoma but people still tried to use the West Virginia Oklahoma game as proof Tavon Austin was worth a first round pick.

I never like to see a RB slide to avoid contact. That being said, I think he runs a little too upright but that isn't necessarily a bad thing with the new leading with the head RB rule. We will probably see both he and Poole getting preseason snaps, right?
