Why doesn’t Jon go play for his Daddy? He might do better than Murray did against SC.

I am pretty sure that Crowell would have been a huge factor from the bench against SC. If he wasn’t kicked off the team, he would have been coming off the bench and then after the first contact, would have come down with an “injury”. I wish him the best in DII, but he was by no means tough enough for the SEC last yeat, and based on his season so far, still isn’t ready for the big time. I think the Freshman backs were over matched, but it is hard to run when you get hit in ht eback field on most plays.

IC will dominate in that weak league and head to the NFL after year 3–he’ll be a superstar! Ga should have kept him on the team.

Jon could not play for his Dad with Murray here- he would red shirt Jon and promise not to play him unless Murray got hurt. We get blown out in Jax and since no one else on the schedule has a winning record, we go 10-2 and will hear all the hype about how great we are

Which SEC school will Crowell be playing for next year? Auburn, Bama, LSU, Tenn? I bet he ends up somewhere playing against the Dawgs. Just a guess…

Cwell will not play in the SEC anyone with sense knows UGA paid for high priced counsel in exchange for agreement he will never play in SEC; could one imagine how good he’d look against our group of arm tacklers. We sure could have used Cwell saturday. I personally wish we could of kept Cwell and sent Richt to Bama St so he could have coached his self up and not at the expense of the once proud to be a dawg campus in Athens ( Mr at least we didnt get shut out)

If memory serves, Crowell out paced Lattimore last year. I agree with Jason above, UGA could have used him. And for all ya’ll questioning his toughness, I’ve like to see you run with a high ankle sprain.

Congrats Jon!

IC is old news and a burned bridge. Hope he does well and gets his life together.

We at Bama State are glad to have Crowell. It seems like UGA enjoys giving up on the better players. Mettenberger is a much better player than Murray. He just made the mistake of going to the absolute worst offensive system in college football. As much as I don’t like Auburn and Pat Dye he is right when he says that Georgia isn’t tough enough to win the big games. Keep Rodney Garner and let Richt go. They have gone as far as they will ever be able to go under him.

Mettenberger is a much better player than Murray? What has Mettenberger done for you to say that? Oh, wait… you go to Bama State. Enough said.

At what point did Crowell take himself out of the game?

Why leave room for stupid comments after a factual report on Jon Richt and Crowell?

Gurshallmay have chosen UGa over UNC, but TJ Logan is staying home. Next great back out of NC signing w/Heels. He and GIO better than Grshall.
