    The Trib (Dave Matter): Spring Practice No. 9: Backs leave their mark

    As you can see from the stats, the tailbacks were the focus of the passing game, catching a variety of screens, flares and dump-off passes. Pinkel said that's been a point of emphasis for the offensive staff, finding 1-on-1 matchups along the perimeter and giving the backs a chance to make defenders miss tackles on safe, easy passes. At one point on the opening series, Glaser hit Marcus Murphy on three straight short passes, one going for 22 yards through a crowd of first-team defenders.

    James Franklin was up next, running the No. 1 offense against the No. 2 defense. The offense was in neutral for a few plays until Moore broke off a 19-yard run off the right side on third-and-1. A snap later, Kendial Lawrence danced through some diving tacklers, again off the right side, and pulled away for a 41-yard touchdown run.

    Lawrence looked especially quick today. On another handoff, he did what few offensive players have done this spring and juked away from Kony Ealy in the backfield, the start of just a 5-yard run that could have been a 5-yard loss.

    Throughout practice the quarterback battle continued to heat up. All quarterbacks were in orange jerseys meaning that they could be hit above the waist. To start the scrimmage Tyler Gabbert showed off for his big brother by completing his first 12 passes of the day with most of them coming against the number 2 and 3 defense.  In another series Gabbert again worked with the number 2 offense, but this time the number 1 defense got the best of it, getting a sack and three incompletions. Gabbert’s final stat line for the day was 16-of-21 passing for 211 yards.
