    In the spirit of a hopeful one-two punch at running back this coming season with Grant and Starks, here is a look back at John Brockington, whom along with McArthur Lane made up a formidable tandem for the Pack back in the early '70s.

    I love that classic running style. He was a punishing back who loved to just run people over.

    I was trying to remember and was thinking didn't they BOTH have like 1000 yards one year?

    But I think it was wishful thinking and Lane only had like 800 some yards.
