For Mark Richt, this is harsh:
“Washaun has a ways to go still to show me that he deserves to start or even play right now,” said Richt, who was asked about Ealey during the question-and-answer session at the end of the program. “He has a ways to go in my book. We’ll see. I love him, though.”
“Or even play right now”? The doghouse Ealey occupies is a lot bigger than I thought. And I’ve got to think a certain incoming freshman has something to do with the floor plan.
I confess that I’ve taken Richt’s words about Crowell being in the mix to start as more about motivating the guys already on campus than as a prediction of Crowell’s future this season. But I’m beginning to change my mind about that. Notwithstanding that King and Malcome showed me flashes at G-Day, right now I’d put Crowell’s chances of starting in the Georgia Dome on September 3rd at 60/40. And it’s Ealey’s future this season that’s in question now.
