Evidently this is going to make ESPN’s “Draft Academy” show, which starts tonight.
One somewhat funny scene in the show is when ESPN’s cameras follow Gurley and some friends to a sports bar in Florida to watch the Super Bowl. Of course, the game is won by the New England Patriots when the Seattle Seahawks throw an interception on the 1-yard line and failed to hand the ball to Marshawn Lynch.
Gurley jumps up from the table incredulous that they didn’t give the ball to arguably the NFL’s best back. “Run the ball!” he yells.
The Bulldogs lost in similar fashion early in the 2014 season when they did run the ball with Gurley on first-and-goal at South Carolina’s 4 trailing late in the game. But realizing ESPN’s were trained closely on him, Gurley held back.
“I’m just going to be quiet on this one,” he said with a grin.
“I’m just going to be quiet on this one”? What kind of Dawg fan are you anyway, Todd?
