They shoot tailbacks, don’t they?

The Bataan Death March which is the Georgia running backs situation continues apace with today’s admission from Ken Malcome:

… Malcome may have already found his way on the field, but minor injuries and difficulty grasping the playbook have held him back. He missed 10 practice sessions in the spring due to a groin injury. He said it’s still an issue but believes he can play through it.

“The groin is cool now,” Malcome said. “I’m still getting treatment on it. I’m going to try my best to get it better for camp. Once you start running on it it’ll start hurting again, but I’ve just got to keep going.”

Oh, joy.  Now they’re down to two healthy running backs.

Does anybody know where Mudcat’s car is these days?  Wherever that is, I want Crowell and Samuel keeping a damned wide berth of the place.

    I feel the return of the 1994 ‘throw and duck’ offense. For those of you too young to remember that was our version of the ‘run and shoot’ for zeier

    Question, can we run it out of a 3 tight end set?!?!

    Hard to keep to the optimism that was building with all this news. But with low expectations come pleasant surprises. Now if people would only quit picking us to win the east…

    Remember when T. Davis could never get 100% healthy? I think better days are in front of Malcome.

    On Malcome’s gimpy days, maybe we give the ball to Big John and dare someone to try to tackle him.

      Go find the highlight tape of Jenkins where he runs the ball in JUCO…holy cow! The guy is a shear beast.

        Before you say that Coweta, remember when Jim Donnan ran that toss sweep with Charles Grant? Lets let Big J settle in on D first.

      Great! Now you just jinxed Jenkins by uttering his names with the RB’s, thanks alot!!


  5. Yikes. In addition to Mudcat’s car, let’s make sure he’s properly educated on emerging from an alley.

    I bet Malcome has a torn hip labrum. I have one and it never heals. Cortisone will make it feel better.

    I’d start developing several sets where you have Murray and Mason in the backfield together with Murray running the ball sometimes. Or you have several sets with an empty backfield.

      Actually you are on to something. Bring in a TE as a single back, send him in motion and pass out of an empty backfield.

    Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue…

    This might turn into one of those Vanderbilt try-outs for students situations.

    Does this mean he hasn’t been doing the reps in S&C? Whoooeee!


  11. No One Knows You're a Dawg

    What’s next, Crowell hurt in a bizarre gardening accident?


  12. 69Dawg

    Over looked in your post is the fact that Joe T has adopted the take no prisoners approach to S&C. He’s actually running the boys. Guess what after running you butt off in practice the game seems a little less tiring.

    It’s all part of CMRs new approach. Lull opponenets (and fans) into believeing we have no chance….. then wham!!! BSU won’t know what hit em.
