Sometimes, life’s a beyotch.
Rare is the season when each and every one of a team’s scholarship running backs return for a second consecutive year.
In the advent of the NCAA transfer portal, this is especially true. But not at Georgia; at least not in the running back room.
All five of the Bulldogs’ scholarship running backs were ranked as either four- or five-star recruits coming out of high school, giving Kirby Smart and offensive coordinator Todd Monken one of the deepest units in the nation.
The question is, how does Monken plan to distribute the ball?
I have a feeling he’ll manage.
Snark aside, this is all a good reason to run your offense a little more quickly so that you generate more offensive plays per game, as well as keeping your foot on the gas in the second half to get all your offensive players more touches. Then there’s always the nice luxury of depth when it comes to injuries. We shall see.
(By the way, it’s good to see the news that both McIntosh and Milton are fully healthy.)
