Who will Replace Brown?

Arguably the brightest spot for the Pirates this upcoming season was at the running back position. Preseason All-CUSA pick Art Brown was expected to have a stellar year. That has all changed.

Brown went down with a season-ending injury last week in practice, and now the coaching staff must turn to either Marvin Townes, transfer Kevin Fain, true freshman Robert Tillman and senior Dominique Hatcher to step up and fill Brown's shoes.

In a scrimmage on Saturday, Tillman showed real promise, rushing for 76 yards on 12 carries. Kevin Fain, who saw the ball mostly in goal-line situations rushed for 28 yards on 10 attempts.
