“Nick Chubb is a throwback”.

I get the impression that number 34 is a big fan of number 27.

  2. I suspect that it goes beyond an athlete admiring a fellow athlete with similar qualities (“physical…durable”) and extends to a gentleman recognizing another gentleman (“quiet”). My wife, a converted Dawgfan, was impressed that Chubb simply handed the ball politely to an official following a TD. I pointed out to her that #34 used to do the same. Grace adds dignity to any contest.

      My buddy pointed this out to me as well. Said it reminded him of Barry Sanders…

      That impresses me about Chubb, too. Immense talent with humility and grace mixed in. He will go far in life, not just in football.

      My best TN friend, a real gentleman, who follows CFB closely said that to me today when we were discussing the OU/TN game. He was impressed with his star status and how humble he remained. Then he said, “And I really like the way he handles himself by handing the ball to the official after a TD and doesn’t try to draw all the attention to himself.”

    I had never met Chubb or spoken to him until today, but he looked me in the eye, said “yes, sir,” and “nice to speak to you,” when we were done with our brief conversation. I’m glad he was what I thought he was.

    Have y’all read the back story on #27? This probably explains why #27 is #27. He is Mr. Wolf.

      Thanks – that’s a pretty damn cool story that I had yet to come across. Chubbtown, GA. It’s very easy to see how his game and most importantly his seemingly endless positive traits mirror both his upbringing and heritage. Glad this guy is representing Georgia.

  6. Known the kid since he was in high school and nothing about him surprises me. Perfect balance of humility and burning desire for greatness. Don’t know what kind of career he’ll finish with but he’s the closest thing to Herschel since Herschel, imo. I was scared when Bammer contacted and offered him first but not surprised since both they and Barn have had roots there for years.

  7. And you can thank Gurley for Chubb handing the ball off to the ref on that first TD. I think many don’t realize how much of a mentor Gurley was and especially after he got suspended, and then hurt, and also the fact that TG could relate to Chubb’s upbringing. TG reached out to him during practice and reminded him how it can all be gone in no time.

    Does UGA have an insurance policy on him like they did for Gurley?

    I don’t know how anyone could watch him play and NOT be a fan. He approaches the game, and life, the way it was meant to be approached. He works for the love of working, plays for the love of playing.

    Nick Chubb to me is very similar to Emmitt Smith
