STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Stanford coach David Shaw is beginning this season the same way he has his first three: preaching a running back-by-committee approach in training camp.

That never seems to last long on The Farm.

Kelsey Young and Barry Sanders - yes, the son of the Hall of Famer with the same name - are competing for the starting job along with Remound Wright and Ricky Seale.
