Ed Aschoff, Todd Gurley and short memories

ESPN’s Ed Aschoff predicts Todd Gurley won’t be this year’s SEC rushing champ, which is okay, but not for the reason you might think:

Georgia’s Todd Gurley has yet to make it through an entire season healthy…

Did I miss something?  Was it another Todd Gurley who finished second in the conference in rushing attempts in 2012? How unhealthy can you be and do that?

Those 222 attempts were nineteen more than Davis had last season, by the way.

“If Clemson can hold Gurley in check…”

Shorter Andrea Adelson:   Never mind that Clemson opens in Athens with last season’s offensive superstars gone, because the defense that gave up 545 yards to Georgia at home last year rules!

Herbie ❤ Pruitt.

He’s “a big reason I like Georgia to win the SEC East”.

Anything in particular you like?

“He [Pruitt] has a way of confusing offensive linemen and quarterbacks,” Herbstreit said.

I have to admit that’s an improvement over having a way of confusing your own defensive backs.

Bruce Feldman likes Georgia coordinators.

If you’ll recall, Mike Bobo made Bruce Feldman’s list of top ten offensive coordinators ready for a head coaching job.

Now comes his list of defensive coordinators, and Jeremy Pruitt pops up at number three.  With a bullet.

His stock surged last year after coming over from Alabama and helping FSU get over the top to win the BCS title. The Noles led the nation in scoring D (12.1 ppg) in 2013. If he can remedy what has been an underachieving Bulldog defense and help UGA win an SEC title, his profile will REALLY take off.

By the way, five of the DCs on his list coach in the SEC.  And Louisville’s guy didn’t make the list.

Here’s something that could make Mike Slive’s head explode.

Pete Fiutak, you’re kidding, right?  Tell me you’re kidding.

– If he can just be a little bit patient, the head coach of your 2017 Alabama Crimson Tide? Lane Kiffin.

The SEC couldn’t get that lucky, could it?

SI.com has a sense of humor.

Show of hands, please.

Tim Tebow and Paul Finebaum on one show? Tell me fans won’t watch that.

I can’t help it – every time I read that, I start laughing.
