… The reality is that Mark Richt now turns to a group composed of one tailback who quit the team for a few days last year (you think Carlton Thomas wishes he could have a mulligan?), two true freshmen (only one of whom enrolled early) and this year’s early leader for the Kiante Tripp Award (not to mention that a good part of the fan base never wants to see him take another snap at tailback).
Put it another way, Dawg fans – your leading returning rusher now is Brandon Harton. Combine that with an offensive line that’s not exactly expected to be a rock when things get underway and it should be hard to escape that nervous feeling.
Now? ESPN’s Chris Low, on ranking Georgia with two of the top three backs in the conference:
It’s almost unfair that Georgia would have both Gurley and Marshall on the same roster.
If only the Dawgs could be in the same place with the secondary this season.
