It’s Todd Gurley finishing.
Georgia coaches will have to figure out how to distribute the ball among those tailbacks.
“Some of that will be playing it by ear as the game goes on,” Richt said. “Some games you have 60 plays and some games you have 80. Just not sure what the total play count’s going to be. We’ll have a pretty good idea what we want to accomplish by the time we get to the game. Part of the goal will be to make sure everybody’s ready to play hard for those last 15 minutes of the game.”
That sounds like Gurley Time.
Gurley rushed for 275 yards on 26 carries in the fourth quarter — a 10.58 average — according to cfbstats.com. That average is higher than any other quarter for Gurley and was second best in the nation before Gurley was suspended.
That’s really what’s important about his return this week. Georgia will have three backs, all tanned, rested and ready, to deal with the Auburn defense if the game goes into the fourth quarter as most of us expect it will. And a fresh Gurley in the last fifteen minutes is a tough, tough thing for an opposing defense to handle. Should be fun to watch.
