08:22 AM ET 08.20 | Oklahoma's Trey Millard suffers from being almost too versatile, but there may be a more specific plan in store for him in 2012. Might this be the year coaches hand their 256-pound human cudgel the ball? ... "Trey is getting more carries," [running backs coach Cale Gundy] said the last time he was asked about it. "We're making that effort because we want to do that. The problem with Trey is he's also one of our best tight ends. He is also our best fullback. He is also our best carrier. He's a hybrid guy and you have to find ways to give him multiple touches." "Trey's as good a football player as I've ever been around," offensive coordinator Josh Heupel said. "... We expect him to have a huge year for us."

I will say if you watch film, his game speed is actually amazing as big as he is, there were times I thought he was faster than any back on the team when the lights came on!!

So do you think they will use him more than the "Belldozer" this year? Or room for both?
