OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -One by one the names roll off Cordera Eason's tongue until he gets to seven - the number of running backs on No. 8 Mississippi's roster legitimately fighting for playing time.
What about Dexter McCluster? Oh, yeah, Dexter makes eight.
There's nothing like a little competition. And Eason's got plenty.
After watching Darren McFadden and Felix Jones run wild in Houston Nutt's offense at Arkansas, tailbacks are lining up to join the Rebels in a scenario similar to Southern Cal's over the last few seasons.
No one has time to rest on their resume here. Preseason practice has been all about competition and, believe it or not, Eason loves the situation.
When he first arrived on campus there were four backs on the roster and two of those were on the service team.
