A little misdirection

A panel at Athlon looks at who might lead the SEC in rushing this season, starts by asking if it’ll be T.J. Yeldon and finishes in a different place.

I’m starting to think this Gurley kid might be pretty good.

    Agree with most writers in the piece. It will be a race between Gurley and Davis. The SC line should be pretty good this year, so I like Davis with that line as much as Gurley with our line. Yeldon will underperform again.

    I think Henry is a better back than Yeldon but may not get the most carries. Davis would be my pick for most yards, if he stays healthy. He benefits from the SC line and a weak QB and receiving corps. The Gurley of 2012 is the best back of the bunch but UGA’s line, sharing carries with 2-3 other quality backs, and his health make me think he will not lead in yardage. I think Gurley might lead in total yardage as he has become a very dependable receiver.

    • … but UGA’s line, sharing carries with 2-3 other quality backs … make me think he will not lead in yardage.

      Could be, but if he’s healthy, he’ll have a lot of yards. He almost had 1000 this year, missing almost 5 games, and only being 100% for 10 plays.

      Anyway, he doesn’t have to have the most yards to be the best back. Not at all, though there are many who don’t see it that way

    “One of these backs: Mike Davis (South Carolina), T.J. Yeldon (Alabama) or Todd Gurley (Georgia) will have to be placed on the second-team All-SEC squad this preseason.”

    Damn. Just, damn!
