CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- When Lovie Smith took the job at Illinois, he said his team would run the ball and that KeShawn Vaughn would be doing most of that running.So far, things havent turned out much like Smith predicted.Illinois (1-3, 0-1 Big Ten) has had mixed results at best on the ground -- three yards rushing against Western Michigan was barely running at all -- and Vaughn was on the bench for most of last Saturdays loss to Nebraska .But his replacements, Reggie Corbin and Kendrick Foster, combined for an effective day in the 31-16 loss to the Cornhuskers. Corbin had nine carries for 72 yards and Foster seven for 46 and a touchdown.With a Purdue team (2-2, 0-1) that gave up 400 yards on the ground last week to Maryland up next, the work-in-progress Illini ground game could soon look much better.The changes Illinois made in its offense ahead of the Nebraska game, which also included more of the no-huddle that quarterback Wes Lunt likes, are the result of the coaching staff adjusting to the talent it has, offensive coordinator Garrick McGee said.Coaches responsibility is to evaluate where you are and what you have and build an offense to make that work, McGee said.At Louisville last season, McGee had a lot of the talent -- including quarterback Lamar Jackson -- that this season is ranked No. 7 in the country .At Illinois, he and Smith committed early to running the ball behind Vaughn, who led the 2015 Illini as a freshman with 723 yards on 157 carries. So far this season, he has just 188 yards in four games.Corbin is a 5-foot-10, 185-pound redshirt freshman who now has 143 yards on 16 carries. Foster, a 5-foot-9, 200-pound junior, leads the team with 221 yards on 25 carries and three touchdowns, including a 31-yarder against the Cornhuskers.Vaughn was among a number of players who McGee said he had serious conversations with in recent weeks about shortcomings in the Illinois offense. The offensive coordinator said the 5-foot-10, 210-pound sophomore will have enough chances in practice to prove himself and get back on the field.Smith declined to say much at all this week about Vaughn, aside from the need to see better play.But he was eager to talk about Corbin and Foster.We can really talk about Reggie Corbin, and what he was able to do, Smith said. We have a running back position and the guy who is going to play is the guy who we feel like is going to give us the best chance to win. Reggie Corbin and Kendrick Foster, those guys gave us the best chance to win last week.---Follow David Mercer on Twitter: (at)davidmercerAP---Online: Associated Press college football coverage: http://collegefootball.ap.org/---This story has been corrected to show Kendrick Foster rather than Reggie Corbin had a 31-yard touchdown against Nebraska.

LATROBE, Pa. -- As if Antonio Brown wasnt fast enough, hes feeling like a racecar driver after the Vontaze Burfict hit during last seasons playoffs.Brown told ESPNs First Take he plans to be more aggressive after Burficts vicious head shot in the final seconds of the Steelers AFC wild-card win in Cincinnati. Brown missed the divisional round loss to Denver with a concussion.You cant have no fear, Brown said. Its like a NASCAR driver whos been in an accident. You cant get into the car with fearful thoughts. You have to have faith. You just have to go out there and be more aggressive.Brown adds his swag got a little better after the hit from Burfict, who will serve a three-game suspension for several egregious plays during his career. Burficts 15-yard penalty on the play inched the Steelers closer to field- goal range, and they won 18-16 with a 35-yard kick by Chris Boswell.Play this game loong enough, youre going to get hit, Brown said.dddddddddddd. That just comes as part of playing football and being in the game. Obviously that hit actually won us the game. Its called taking one for the team.Brown, who caught 136 passes for 1,834 yards last season, has made it clear he would like a new contract. He has two years remaining on a six-year, $43-million deal signed in 2012.Brown told the media Sunday that an NFL team should take care of a player if he outperforms his contract. Hes not holding out because of his respect for the Rooney family, which owns the team, and his desire to stay in football shape.Its my job to be ready to go when the season stats, Brown said. Its up to my agent to deal with the other things. I know things will fall into place. ' ' '
