More Gurley love

I’m starting to come around to Mark Richt’s approach about touting Todd Gurley for the Heisman.  Number 3 is getting plenty of preseason attention; if he stays healthy, I doubt he wins the trophy, but he’ll be among the group invited to New York.

Here are two more mentions in the national press:

    Ramik made that list too.

    I saw that. And I hope that due to more 3 and outs and third down stops his tackles number goes down.

    Maybe a dumb question, but what exactly is Richt’s approach to touting Gurley for the Heisman?

    I haven’t been able to identify one.

      Continuously talking about not touting him for the Heisman… It is the old “Too Cool for School” approach. I think it is working.

    This is the second pre-season list that Ramik has shown up on thus far that I have seen. Glad he is getting some pub but are these writers just looking at stat sheets? Don’t get me wrong. Ramik is a solid player but is he being over hyped?

      I thought the much the same thing. Not much positive said about Jordan Jenkins who had a fair year, tied for team lead for TFL and made second team All SEC. Not too shabby. I look for him to get over his bit of a soph slump and make a mark this season.

      Of course.

      Yeah, no doubt in my mind. His film just doesn't back up all that hype. That said, Ramik CAN be a great player, I believe, IF he's maxing out right now and then keeps it up through Camp and into the season. With better coaching and a much better scheme to play from, Ramik has a great chance to show what he can do.

      And we need him to do it.

    Gurley is a no-brainer but what I am trying to wrap my mind around is why is D. Henry #1? The guy has played about half a quarter of scrub time. He looked like taller and maybe a hair faster Gurley. Good to see Ramik getting some love. Hopefully he will get a ton of tackles again this year however I am hoping under Pruitt’s system a lot more will happen behind or at the LOS instead of 5-10 yards down field.

    Gurley is the best period, no other back has the moves this guy has. If he can stay injury free it will a highlight tape all year.

    Retarded to have a guy who barely played above Todd at #1
