- Scouting the Northwestern run defense: Texas A&M offense played without leading tailback Cyrus Gray in its last game against Texas. The Aggies won't know Gary's status until close to the bowl game. Gray, who has a stress fracture in his shoulder, has a "50-50" chance at playing, according to interim coach Tim DeRuyter. Gray owns a team-high 1,045 rushing yards in 198 attempts in 11 games. The Aggies still have a capable running attack with Christine Michael, who has 899 yards rushing and eight rushing touchdowns. The Wildcats haven't been able to stop teams all season in the running game. Even if Gray doesn't play, Texas A&M will attack via the run given that the Wildcats have allowed 2,114 rushing yards in 12 games, allowing a whopping 176.2 yards per contest. - The Sports Xchange
Full Vince Browne News Wire
Browne is a try-hard player with enough size to develop with technique refinement and more disciplined hand use. More of a hustling pass rusher than an accomplished or natural one, he'll make his mark as a fifth or sixth defensive lineman.
Positives: Flashes upper-body strength to rip and has the punch to push through interior linemen on stunts and twists. Excellent hustle-and-chase tackler. Good closing speed with change of direction to corral mobile quarterbacks.
Negatives: Average quickness and power and his bull rush will be stonewalled. Comes off the snap high, losing leverage. Can be defeated by tight end blocks. Tore ligaments in both knees (right ACL in high school, left knee in '08).
