TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The more you watch Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson pound away on defenses and slice through would-be tacklers, the more you think it's almost unfair for two running backs that good to be on one team.
The way Alabama uses them makes them even more difficult to deal with for opposing defenses.
Richardson pounds away for a while and them breaks one to the outside, and then Ingram comes in with fresh legs and does his thing.
They get along great, too. When Ingram scored his touchdown to make it a 17-0 game, the first guy off the sideline to congratulate him was Richardson.
