Spurrier, Sumlin talk RB returns during SEC media days

Many of the questions asked to South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin about postseason formats, conference play and the like produced regurgitated answers.

For those wondering about more immediate issues concerning the Aggies and Gamecocks, specifically their respective backfields, fear not, your questions were answered.

Both Spurrier and Sumlin said they fully expected their star running backs — Marcus Lattimore and Christine Michael, respectively — to be 100 percent healthy in time for opening week kickoffs.

“Marcus Lattimore has rehabbed beautifully & should be ready to go,” Spurrier said. Lattimore suffered a season-ending knee injury¬†last year in a game against Mississippi State.

Sumlin added that Michael, who suffered his own season-ending knee injury in November, has been ready to go for some time, corroborating his statement¬†in April that Michael was “way ahead” of where he thought the running back would be in the recovery stages.

    Coaches giving media canned answers? Naaawww. Good to hear these two great running backs are back and healthy. Defenses in the SEC will be challenged with both. The best tandem of RBs in college football today at LSU are all healthy and ready to run with a pro-style QB that can toss the long ball to stretch out defenses. Media days are a sign of football season soon to begin, so in that media days are good.

    Geaux Tigers!

    Gamecocks should be solid in their backfield. Best running back in the NCAA and lots of depth.
