I’m excited to see what Kevin Marks can do this season. It’s his first year at Buffalo where he’s not splitting time with Jaret Patterson. Marks has been half of a duo that dominated the MAC’s defenses, with the opportunity to stand alone he could make his own way onto NFL radars, and climb in the UB Record books

Marks is in a solid position to catch Branden Oliver this year if he stays healthy and the offensive line comes together. BO sits 1390 yards over Marks, which at his carreer yards per carry would take 276 carries, or 23 per game.

Very doable for the Buffalo offense.

Ron Cook cracked the top 100 all time last year, and as the #2 guy the Junior looks to move up, a lot, with the increased action he will see this season.
