Nick Chubb says whatever’s ailing Georgia’s running attack the last two games, it ain’t his health. You want to argue with him? I don’t.
Dial this clip up to the 3:35 mark and take a look.
It’s Chubb’s longest run of the night, on the last play of the third quarter. He goes wide, shakes off a defender who eluded Payne’s block and turns it upfield for a sixteen-yard gain. It’s classic Chubb. The big difference between that play and what went on for most of the rest of the night was that he was able to get a little space within which to operate.
Jim Chaney needs to figure out a way to make that happen more often, that’s all.
