Welcome back, Todd Gurley

SEC Championship - Alabama v Georgia Getty Images

Georgia running back Todd Gurley wasted no time showing the Bulldogs how much they’ve missed him the past few weeks.

The sophomore, playing for the first time since the LSU game in late September, rushed for 25 yards on his first touch, caught a pass for 14 yards on his second touch, scored on a five yard run on his third touch, rushed for five yards on his fourth touch and then took an inside screen 73 yards for a touchdown on his fifth touch.

Five touches, 122 yards, two touchdowns and no apparent signs of rustiness or sluggishness as the result of the high ankle sprain that has cost him much of the season thus far.

The Bulldogs, up 14-0 early on Florida, are a different team with this elite talent in the backfield. Makes you wonder where they’d be if he’d never gotten hurt.

    I don’t think that lack of talent has been Georgia’s biggest problem. They have been consistently out coached for awhile now. I have been hearing about Richt on the hot seat for 2 years, and I know enough Georgia fans to know that 8-win seasons are not enough.

    I am not sure what game the writer saw, but Gurley was a winded young man for most of the second half, and I think it had more to do with a virus than his ankle. Even less than 100%, the young man, is exciting to watch on the field.
    His future replacement is coming to UGA next year in Nick Chubb, so with both Chubb and Sony incoming for 2014, I have to think that UGA is going to be set at RB for the next four years. Of course, keeping folks healthy is always a concern. I would have loved to see UGA stay healthy all year, to see what they could have done on offense.
    The defense was going and still is a work in progress, but the offense when healthy, could have carried the load and made it easier to cover the defense’s lack of experience.
