Mikel Leshoure dropped 6-7 pounds since last year

Offensive coordinator Paul Petrino likes to rotate his running backs to keep his best guy fresh to be the man in the fourth quarter. Everyone assumes junior Mikel Leshoure, who averaged 6.8 yards per carry last year, will be that man and he hasn't done anything to change that perception. He dropped 6-7 pounds since last year (to 228) and checked in with a body-fat percentage of 4.2. That's just crazy.
