07:18 AM ET 08.14 | In this case, three may not be a crowd. There are times on the practice field when Missouri quarterback James Franklin loses track of which tailback he just handed the ball. If not for the number on the back of their jerseys, Franklin might have trouble telling apart Henry Josey, Russell Hansbrough and Marcus Murphy. Their likeness in stature and skills matches their ability to slip on and off the field without their quarterback knowing the difference. ... Missouri might not have an All-Southeastern Conference tailback on the roster -- it's too early to know how much of his 2011 form Josey will regain -- but the Tigers believe they have three interchangeable weapons to pair with Franklin in the backfield. (That's assuming, of course, Franklin maintains the No. 1 quarterback job.)

Unless they plan to use the old Tennessee line-up and put 13 guys on the field, then the two extra RB's can block.
