“I know how to run the ball now.”

Nick Chubb, quote machine.

In back-to-back games, the freshman crossed the 30-carry mark, something Gurley never did at Georgia. Chubb’s stamina and toughness kept him mobile for most of the season, and even when he tired, his mental fortitude kept him on the field and off the sidelines.

“I was tired almost every game, but I didn’t really show it,” Chubb said.

“If you’re tired, just go in and score and get off the field. That’s my mode, I just go in and score and get off the field, and I won’t be tired anymore.”

I don’t know if he’s Georgia’s greatest running back since Herschel Walker, but he’s definitely Georgia’s greatest wordsmith since Walker.

Only one worry…

And as long as his contacts are clear and secure, he’s nearly invincible.

“If they come out, I’m coming out,” Chubb said with a laugh.

“That’s definitely my weakness right there — my contacts [falling out].”

So now I’ve gone from being concerned over keeping Sharpies out to contact lenses in.  It’s always something.

  1. Brandon Spikes has been gone for a few years now, so we don’t have to worry about an eye gouge … 🙂

    He needs the clear face shield on his task mask now or go with the Eric Dickerson glasses

    Just keep plenty of spares on the sidelines and have a sub run them in, and Nick may not need to come out for a play.

    Does the UGAAA cover Lasik for student athletes?! If not it should 😉

      They could pay for them to have Lasik, but most college kids are really too young for it. Most doctors want you to be 22-23ish to make sure your vision has matured and isn’t changing.

    In a rational system, he should get marketing rights to every sign, t-shirt, etc. with that slogan that is surely going to show-up in Athens.

    Would lasik be considered an additional benefit?

    Chubb will prove to be the best RB in America, but I think his peers Michel and Marshall are way too good for Chubb to get enough carries to take home the Heisman. He’ll have to settle on First Team All American.

  11. 3 and out; receive punt; hand off to Chubb; extra point; kickoff, repeat.

    32 carries and we break tech’s 222-0 record.
