Say hello to Aaron Murray’s leetle fren’.

Is this gushing?  I think this is gushing.

Todd Gurley was back at practice on Tuesday and, according to quarterback Aaron Murray, he was a sight for sore eyes.

“Beautiful as always,” said Murray, asked after practice how Gurley looked. “I was looking at him and I was like, ‘goodness, gracious that dude is huge.’ I mean he’s a pretty sucker to look at. He looked good. He did everything. Y’all see us when we do run polish. He did every rep with me and he looked good. I asked him how he felt and he said he feels good. We’ve got another two weeks so he’ll be full go by Florida hopefully. It’s definitely great to have him back.”

Love is a many splendored thing, y’all.  I know just how he feels.  And I doubt you’ll hear a bigger cheer in Jacksonville than when we see number 3 step on the field.  Hopefully.

  1. He completely changes the offensive game plan in ways that Marshall right now can’t. I hope he’s able to carry the ball 20-25x next Saturday because we’ll need every one of them.

    We have really really missed not having that battering ram or the threat of him near the goal line, it will help but we really need Bennett and Conley too. What’s the word on Wooten?

    I, too, have to admitt that I heart me some Gurley! I believe if we had put him in the game last week and just let him stand in the backfield as a decoy it would have changed Vandy’s whole defensive scheme. He’s a big, fast, mean runner that impacts both teams when he’s in the game.

      No…by the time the refs figured-out he was just a decoy, they would have thrown a flag for targeting on him in the 2nd half and we’d have lost him for the first half of the FL game.

    I am glad Gurley is getting well. But when you are one play away from the second teamer behind him every time he touches the ball, I just hope the o line is getting better acquainted with Green and Douglas and how much time they need to hold blocks for each of them, because each of them requires slightly different lanes to run in.

    I hope to see us line up in the I formation and run the toss sweep one thousand times.

    Gurley won’t help much if the OLine continues to let our backs get stoned at the LOS. Against 8 in the box you can’t afford any missed blocks. Gurley should be most effective on screens and swing passes.

      Correct. and that’s why one of the receivers needs to make them pay by getting open deep or just getting some separation. If they put 8 in the box, we have to throw it.

      I believe Bobo’s solution for this is to run Green up the middle from the single back shotgun. It’s gonna work someday, dammit, and then we’ll see who has the last laugh!!
