Aaron Murray: Gurley should be ‘full go’ against Florida

SEC Championship - Alabama v Georgia Getty Images

Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray told the media on Tuesday that he believes star running back Todd Gurley will be “full go” when the Bulldogs take on rival Florida in a couple weekends.

Gurley leads UGA in rushing but has been out the past three weeks with a high ankle sprain that he suffered in the first half of the Bulldog’s win over LSU on Sept. 28.

Without the bruising sophomore, Georgia has been less dynamic in the running game, a situation that worsened when Gurley’s backup, Keith Marshall, was knocked out for the season with an ACL tear against Tennessee.  Freshmen J.J. Green and Brendan Douglas have taken over running back duties in the meantime, but they are no Gurley, who has 450 yards and four touchdowns in his four starts and is averaging 6.34 yards per carry.

At the time of his injury, Gurley was arguably the best back in the SEC, if not the country. Getting him back would be just what the doctor ordered for Georgia against the tough Florida front seven.

    He will surely be welcomed back into the fold of the living and not walking wounded for sure. Now, if Bennett is also a go, maybe the offense can get on track again. In the case of UGA, the offense has got to do the job, in order for the team to stay competitive, because itr appears it has taken a little longer than was thought, for the young defense to gel on the field. It doesn’t appear that the Florida offense will overly challenge this young defense, but their defense is still formidable enough to present a challenge, to our injury plagued offense for sure.

    Thuga you say. Perhaps you should take a look at the arrest records they keep on this site. I believe quite a few more universities and colleges have had numerous arrest for players doing the Thug act.
