Bulldog Bites: Washaun for Heisman?

Washaun Ealey's numbers are getting some UGA fans excited about the future. (Brant Sanderlin / AJC)

Washaun Ealey's numbers are getting some UGA fans excited about the future. (Brant Sanderlin / AJC)

An interesting comparison between Knowshon Moreno’s numbers and those of freshman Washaun Ealey at Bulldawg Illustrated makes the case that Georgia fans could be in for some exciting results in the running game.

Ealey didn’t play an entire season, but if you take his numbers and extrapolate them to a full season’s worth, they compare quite favorably with what Moreno did. In fact, his yards-per-carry average of 5.8 is better than Moreno’s 5.4 in 2007 and 5.6 in 2008.

The blog also notes that “only two SEC running backs with a minimum of 100 carries, Dexter McCluster of Ole Miss and Mark Ingram of Alabama, averaged more rushing yards per carry in 2009 than Washaun’s 5.8 YPC. Mark Ingram is considered to be the leading Heisman contender, and here is his 2009 line: 249 carries, 1542 yards, 6.2 yards per carry, 15 [touchdowns]. Washaun’s extrapolated numbers would be in Ingram’s neighborhood. Is it too early to begin the Washaun Ealey for Heisman chatter?”

MAKING THE CASE FOR ERK

Erk Russell has been nominated for the College Football Hall of Fame by DawgSports blogger T. Kyle King.

A lot of UGA and Georgia Southern fans have wondered why Russell, whose Eagles won three national chamionships, isn’t in the hall of fame, but the fly in the ointment is that Erk’s eight-season tenure at Georgia Southern didn’t give him the required 10 years as a head coach. However, DawgSports’ King makes a case for counting Russell’s three years as the coach of Auburn’s freshman team.

King has worked hard in preparing Erk’s nomination; let’s hope it pays off.

ORANGE PRIDE INVESTIGATION

MrSEC.com has a roundup of reports about the NCAA’s investigation of Tennessee’s football program, growing out of some of the Orange Pride hostesses making an apparently illegal off-campus recruiting trip.

His summary: “Tennessee will say that their coaches had no knowledge of the hostesses’ trip. If there were only two girls involved, that’s a lot more believable. The hostesses will probably be booted from the Orange Pride program. The NCAA will probably hand down another secondary violation. UT will then need to hope that this secondary violation doesn’t break the proverbial camel’s back … and that the NCAA doesn’t uncover anything else in their talks.”

WELL SAID, MR. CONGRESSMAN

When a U.S. House subcommittee approved legislation Wednesday aimed at forcing major college football to switch to a playoff system to determine its national champion, the measure passed by voice vote with one audible “no” coming from Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.), an Athens native who is no fan of the BCS but who seems to have a firmer grip than some of his colleagues about why he’s in Washington. “With all due respect,” Barrow said before the vote, “I really think we have more important things to spend our time on.”

I see the stats for Ealy and thinnk he’s a fine runner. But I don’t quite feel like we have a better RB on our hands than Moreno was. We’ll see next year.

Erk should be in the Hall of Fame. They should consider his career as a whole. This Eagle/Dawg alum hopes he makes it.

I agree with John Barrow. Nix the BCS, get us college football fans what we want (majority) in a playoff system, and let congress deal with bigger things please.

I’m hoping Erk gets in. Always have been a big fan of his and ironically tutored the coach that dawg fans can’t stand now. Just too, too early to make a call on Ealey, but he seems to be the most talented back in the dawg stable. I’d make King earn that spot next year as starter and not just give it to him over Washaun. As much as I would like to see a playoff, Congress getting involved just comes across as childish to me.

I’ll take the wait and see attitude on both Ealey and King – If King can go a full season without injuries that take him off the field, he’s no slouch. If they are both healthy, neither one may get the carries needed to be considered for postseason national awards.

Erk should be in!

Congress is just full of egomaniacs and powertrippers and has become a joke; sticking their noses into sports only proves it further. We need to just start over with all new ones that don’t know how to get earmarks yet, and when they figure it out, replace them again.

On the coaching front, we have heard about Smart, etc., but I’d like to hear about anyone else in the mix since that is 50/50 at the very best. I’ve heard a little about a guy named Manny Diaz out of Middle Tenn. I think? Short resume in a small conference, but impressive so far. Anyone else heard anything?

SadDawg – If Tech were to rejoin the SEC, they probably would be in the East, maybe swapping with SC or replacing Vandy. On the other hand, if Georgia were to join the ACC, they would probably be in the Coastal,maybe replacing BC.

In the second scenario, Tech and Georgia could meet twice a year on consecutive weekends. That would really be something…

Remember that Ealy is only a Frosh. While being a great RB with a tough running style, Ealy has no break away type of speed. He should have took 3 to the house against Tech on long runs. Let’s give the kid at least next year before we go all Heisman on him. Besides we have AJ as a Heisman contender next year if we get a QB to get him the ball.

Bill-

I know Bobo hates for us to hype Ealey but High Achievers shoot high–the Beatles set their goal as being “Bigger than Elvis”. Without a vsion, you perish. Watch that 1st Qrtrt against Ga Tech, and tell me about Ealey’s potential. Ealey had a 35 yard EXPLOSION PLAY on his 3rd touch. He got another 30+ EXPLOSION run in the 2nd Qrtrt. He was averaging 12 ypc for most of the 1st half. That’s nuts–DOUBLE HERSCHEL WALKER’S YPC!! Herschel’s career ypc was 5.29, Ealey’s at 5.8 this season. Herschel was voted the top #3 college player in NCAA history–and Ealey’s BEATING HERSCHEL’s YPC!!! Ealey certainly has the potential to average 7+ ypc for a season, but he needs to be in top condition like Jerry Rice (Rice’s “Go Long” book is outstanding)and I think he will get better next year.

2010 might be Ealey’s best chance to get the Heisman, because Georgia will have a Freshman QB, so we’ll have to run the ball 40 times a game. If Ealey gets 30 touches a game like Herschel did, he’ll have a legit shot at getting a Hesiman. He could have a 2500 yard season if he gets 30 touches, averages 6 yards a carry, and plays in the SEC champ game, and then a bowl game–that’s 14 games x 180 yards = 2500 yards. That will win him a Heisman. He’ll need 2 TD’s per game and 12 or 13 wins.

Florida, LSU, Auburn, and Ga Tech knew he was coming, but could not stop him. It should be interesting to watch.

godawgs

December 10th, 2009

To see just how much better Ealey has been than King, you have to dig into the stats a little deeper. The rotation thing makes no sense to me.

Ealey- 4th quarter 5.0 ypc
King- 4th quarter 4.94 ypc

Ealey- 3rd down- 5.46 ypc (Samuel averaged about 1 ypc on 3rd down)
King- 3rd down- 2.11 ypc

Ealey red zone- 4.57 ypc
King- red zone- 3.64 ypc

Ealey- when winning by 15+- 16.24 ypc
King- when winning by 15+- 6 ypc

Ealey- Losing by 15 points or more- 4.67 ypc
King- no stats yet

Ealey- 3rd down with 1-3 yards to go- 7 ypc (better than Tebow)
King- 3rd down with 1-3 yards to go- 1.5 ypc

Dooley didn’t rotate Herschel, and I doubt Bobo will keep rotating Ealey.

Richt has a 40 win and 3 loss record when we get a 100 yard rusher.

When teams can’t stop a guy, it breaks their will to win.

Delbert D.

December 10th, 2009
6:20 pm

godawgs – Interesting analysis. I don’t entirely agree with the last statement, though. The character and mental toughness of the team plays a part. Ga. Tech couldn’t stop Ealey, King or Spiller, and they never lost their will to win. Last year Georgia couldn’t stop Dwyer and Jones; do you think Georgia lost their will to win? I don’t think so.

I have seen cases where teams did appear to lose their will to win, so in general it is a good strategy to employ.

Someone said he doesn’t have speed. He is fast enough. He is faster than Knowshon.

“I’m also not sure exactly how fast Ealey is. I don’t think he’s a sub 4.4 guy, and I’m not even sure he runs the 4.45 that Rivals says he does. But really I don’t care. ECI Head Coach Milan Turner said it best when he told the AJC that his star tailback is “as fast as the guy chasing him.” That about sums it up.”

As for rotating King and Ealy ..I like that idea myself.. for the folks using Moreno as a standard …. IMO Knowshon was a better back in 07 than in 08 because T.Brown got a lot of carries and Moreno was able to stay fresh down the stretch.King suffered a broken jaw and a slight concussion against LSU and still finished the game playing hard….that earned the kid a whole lot of respect from me.He has paid his dues in the program and is just starting to realize his potential as an all around back.A two back rotation can be very successful in the SEC.We’ve done it,so has ARK and AUB recently…I don’t see the problem.

Bobo didn’t rotate Joe Cox but he did rotate Ealey? Makes no sense. Georgia in 2009 is 2-0 when we get a 100 yard rusher, and 5-5 when we don’t. When we get a 100 yard rusher, we dominate mentally and pysch out the other team like Bama and Ingram does. Having 1 guy run for 200 is psychologically MUCH MORE INTIMDATING AND WILL BREAKING than having 20 guys run for 10 yards. Herschel proved that with his win/loss record when he got 100 yards in a game. Herschel got about 150 a game on 30 touches.

Richt is 40 wins, only 3 losses when he gets a 100 yard rusher. Against Ga Tech, Ealey got 183 yards on 20 touches– 9.1 ycp.

Herschel Walker’s Georgia’s record’s are about to fall:
TD Record- 44 (Ealey needs 2 a game for 22 games)
Career YPC average- 5.29 ypc
Best Rushing Game–285 yards (could have broken this one against Tenn Tech this season–Ealey got 12.7 ypc in that game but Bobo benched him as a reward for his effort)

45 the duos that seem to be the most effective or the ones where the kids have contrasting styles.Ealy has that short chopping stride like Knowshon(Moreno may be a tad faster) which allows him the get in and out of the hole quickly while King has more top end speed and soft hands.They seem to be developing a nice rhythm as well.Make no mistake Washaun got his shot and rose to the occasion as a true freshman…I love this kid too!!Give Cox these guys healthy from game 1 and he wouldn’t be sitting on 14 picks

Your dog blogger is trying to come up with some kind of logic or reasoning that Washaun Ealey, who has had one big game and probably has 300 yds on the season, is gonna be a Heisman contender.

But look at politics (and politicians) like High School elections for class president.
They are popularity contests. The kids with the money and the status get nominated and win the election.

In essence… these aren’t politicians. Just the popular vote of the people.
And when the people write their politicians asking for change… the politicians are doing a disservice to their constituents by ignoring the voice of the people.

90% of college football fans favor a playoff.
WHY WOULD THEY NOT LISTEN TO THEIR CONSITUENTS???
(don’t look at politicians like they are important. They aren’t. Just popular)

Its a shame that us puppies can’t bark about anything else but our win over those yellow jackets. I guess it is what we get for letting lowly Kentucky beat our fuzzy butts. I don’t think we have enough self-esteem to do much else than to claim success by winning one stupid game over GT because we know when we go to Shreveport we will get our fuzzy butts handed to us by those Texas Aggies. We can’t even get any respect from our own head coach. It really sucks to be a puppy this year. I think we might be licking Jacket butt for a while they way things are looking right now.

I could care less about a heisman, it doesnt mean anything. Didn’t Tebone win it the year they did nothing and lost to Michigan in their bowl game.

Bill’s getting a little carried away here. Washaun has had some great games but lets wait a little bit before touting him for the Heisman.
He’s going to be splitting carries with King and who knows how many carries he’ll get, how much publicity, etc.
CJ Spiller was a senior, had great stats coming into this season, had an unbelieveably good season with stand out games on national TV and isn’t even one of the 5 invited to NYC this weekend.

And comparing him to Herschel??? Come on!

Let’s try and settle down a little with all of this National Championship and Heisman talk. We are 7-5 and going to the Independence Bowl for God’s sake, Ealey has had one good game, we’ll have a new DC next year along with a Freshman QB. We will be doing good if we improve our record next year by one game. Maybe by 2011 we can be a top ten team again–MAYBE. I know one thing, though, it sets up well for us to make a run next year with no Bama or LSU on the schedule, Tennessee and Tech at home, Tebow and Strong gone from Florida, and no other tough OOC games…………….a Freshman QB with no experience is what will hold us back, we just have to hope he improves throughout the year. If we can get to the Florida game with only one loss, we might have a shot. I just don’t see it though.

If Richt would have just benched Cox after the Tennessee game in favor of one of the two Freshmen, we could be going into next year with an experienced Sophomore QB and a darn good chance at making a run if the defense improved, but Cox stayed in…..and for what? 7-5 and an Independence Bowl birth? What a waste, and it will ruin next year for us.

Well, now that the trophy named after me is awarded basically based upon a slick marketing campaign…..I see 2 ways that Ealey could win:

1. The Teabow way – play great, tear up, wear verses under your eyes, have photogenic parents who tear up in the stands, have Richt give you man-kisses at key moments. END RESULT AFTER WIN – High draft choice, fairly good career, in someplace like Buffalo or Seattle.

2. The Thug way – play great, grow some corn-rows, sideline dance whether ahead or behind, hire a publicist, pull a Montez and abuse some women, basically strong arm your way into the trophy. END RESULT AFTER WIN – High Draft Choice – probably to Oakland or Cincy, mass marketing campaign to play up your thug image including clothes, jewelry, sports drink, liquor, gansta rap, etc. Multiple arrests and suspensions. Eventual bankruptcy and appearance on Oprah special, leading to shaving your corn-rows off and re-iventing yourself as a gospel evangelist or hawking a kitchen appliance.

Ealey stuff

December 11th, 2009
11:31 am

I’d like to see Ealey get 25 carries x 6.2 yards a carry = 155 yards a game x 13 games = 2000+ yards rushing in the SEC. I’d say if Ealey gets 25 carries a game, you’re looking at 15 to 20 TD’s. If Ealey gets 2000 yards and 15-20 TD’s in the SEC, that’s better than Ingram & Bama, and Georgia will win the SEC & Natl’ Championship & Ealey will get the Heisman. I’d give Ealey the ball 30 times if I were Bobo, but Bobo will probably give King 15 carries, and Ealey 25 carries.

Florida, LSU, Ga Tech, and Auburn all had their chance to stop Ealey. They knew Ealey was coming, but could not stop him. Some of the best defenses in the nation—Ealey ran right through them. Ealey’s the real deal. 4.32 40 yard dash speed. Tremendous quickness to the hole. Strong power. Breaks tackles.

1:09 pm

The way to win in the SEC is have a powerful RB. In 2007, Georgia beat Florida by giving the ball 33 times to Moreno, who got 5.7 ypc, and almost 200 yards. Ealey is outrushing Moreno so far in his Georgia career, as he did also in High School. In that 2007 game, Georgia won the time possession battle, turnover battle, and Moreno rushed for 30 carries and almost 200 yards. That’s the way to win in the SEC. 1 back, 30+ carries, 200 yards.

Washaun is an exciting back and will be our next 1,000+ yard rusher barring injury, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. He’ll need to do a lot more than gash up Georgia Tech to win the Heisman. Making the ACC Champion look like a high school team does not win you a Heisman. If it did, there would not be enough Heismans to go around. Ealey will need to put up those kind of numbers against a legitimate team, like Ingram did to Florida.

Erk definitely deserves to be in the College Football Hall of Fame. Do they not give any credit to coordinators? I don’t know if Mickey Andrews of Fla. State ever was a head coach at any level, but he deserves to be in the HOF one day, too. Maybe Erk can go in in one of the first classes enshrined when the HOF comes to Atlanta. That would be fantastic!

The dawgs (Ealey and Green) need to be worried about winning, not awards. However, regardless of how good Green is or will be, someone has to throw him the ball and we do not have a proven QB. Murray maybe the best thing since sliced bread, but we can’t talk about Green for Heisman just yet. Along the same lines, if the line doesn’t block well, Ealey won’t have a chance. Overall, I’m not sure that Ealey is the best all around back at UGA yet. King is solid in the running game and has a better handle on pass blocking. Before all the nay sayers jump on me, I am not annointing King either. I think we are still in a wait and see mode for King. I’ll give him a break after missing half his Senior season in HS with a broken leg, was RS his first year at UGA, on the bench behind Moreno his second year at UGA. By the end of the year he was running much better than his first few games (midway through the season b/c of the hamstring). The kid showed some toughness coming back after breaking his jaw. Personally, after missing so much time without playing significant time in games, I think it just took him awhile to get his legs under him. With all of that said, I still think Ealey is a great runner. With a little time to work on the pass protection, he may completely take the reigns of the running game away from King. It should prove to be a very competitive spring and fall for these two. Also, they maybe better as a duo than individuals. We have them both for a couple of more years

Won’t be able to pony up the money to get Kirby Smart….Bama moving him from 400K to 600K for job well done…..Willie Martinez was at 285K and Bobo and friends right around the 300K mark…It will take 700K to get Kirby, he is the guy who would excite the players and the fanbase, but don’t look for that to happen…He would be making double what the OC would be making and double what Martinez made…WE HAVE THE MONEY, WHY IS IT THAT WE ARE PAYING 1/3 OF WHAT TEXAS IS PAYING FOR THEIR DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR, AND ONLY 1/2 OF WHAT FLORIDA STATE IS PAYING…IS FOOTBALL AT UGA WORTH ONLY 1/3 OF WHAT IT IS AT TEXAS????….ALTHOUGH OUR REVENUES ARE IN THE TOP 2 OR 3 IN THE COUNTRY, WE ARE DOING A POOR JOB OF PAYING OUR ASSISTANT COACHES…WHEN MAC MCWHORTER IS DONE AT TEXAS AS OLINE COACH AND RETIRES, AND THEY DOUBLE COACH SEARLES SALARY AT TEXAS, WE GONNA LOSE HIM TOO….COACH RICHT’S HANDS ARE TIED IN WHAT HE CAN OFFER A DC…ABOUT 450K WILL BE ABOUT TOPS…THEY JUST PAID YOUNG STOOPS 700K TO LEAVE ARIZONA AND COME TO FLORIDA STATE….THINK THAT PRES. ADAMS LIKES IT THIS WAY IN THAT HE HAS TOLD THE AD TO NEVER LET THE FOOTBALL COACH/AD GET AS POWERFUL AGAIN AS COACH DOOLEY WAS….MEDIOCRE SEASONS WILL KEEP THE FOOTBALL HEAD COACH FROM BECOMING POWERFUL…COACH RICHT WILL DO THE BEST HE CAN WITH THE MONEY HE CAN OFFER, BUT DON’T LOOK FOR MIRACLES…MONEY TALKS, AND THE OTHER STUFF WALKS…AND RIGHT NOW WE ARE WALKING…..BUT WHEN COACH RICHT IS NOT ALLOCATED THE MONEY TO GO “GET THE BEST” AND WE AS FANS HAVE TO SETTLE FOR MEDIOCRITY, THE NEXT MOVE WILL BE TO CLEAN OUT THE AD’S OFFICE AND IF THE RIGHT GOVERNOR IS ELECTED, THE PRESIDENT’S OFFICE TOO….WONDER IF COACH SABAN NEEDED A DC WOULD THEY TIE HIS HANDS AS TO WHAT HE COULD PAY HIM????? COACH RICHT DOES NOT HAVE THE CONTROL OVER HIS OWN DESTINY NEARLY AS MUCH AS COACH SABAN DOES….AND IF COACH BRYANT HAD WANTED TO STAY AROUND ANOTHER YEAR AT ALABAMA, DO YOU GUESS THE ALABAMA FANS WOULD HAVE LET THE PRESIDENT FORCE HIM OUT LIKE HAPPENED AT UGA WITH COACH DOOLEY….

The Coach Richt Era ?

Has it been Boom ?

Is it Bust ?

How do you personally put up with the arrests and suspensions during the entire Coach Richt Era ?

Is Brian VanGorder a Great Falcons Defensive Coordinator, or not ?

Is Joe Cox really all we have at QB ?

How is that we have to yank the Redshirt off Washaun Ealey in the third quarter of the 5th game ?

Why was Knowshon Moreno Redshirted ?

Did we really not know how good Knowshon is ?

4 parts to college football.

How would you rate UGA’s Coaching and I’m not talking Defense.

How would you rate UGA’s Offense under Coach Richt and now Mike Bobo ?

How would you rate UGA’s Special Teams Kick-offs, Punt Returns and Kick-Off Returns ?

How would you rate the Recruiting of UGA’s Defensive Players ?

Let’s look at just how good we really are, and have been, shall we ?

In a season when we are in fact the

NCAA Number 78 Passing Offense

NCAA Number 73 Total Offense

NCAA Number 41 in Punt Returns

NCAA Number 76 in Kick-Off Returns

NCAA Number 119 in Turnover Margin

NCAA Number 117 in Penalties

We just FIRED THE ENTIRE DEFENSIVE COACHING STAFF, except for the Recruiting Coordinator.

We do not have and have not had an Offense, and this is nothing new this year.

We are a sorry lot on Special Teams, outside our Kickers.

We are an Undisciplined Group of Players on and off the field with 9 years now of Arrests and Suspensions. You can belittle this and say oh it’s only driving a scooter without a license, etc. but the facts remain our players are ARRESTED and SUSPENDED for what you write off as insignificant.

And, we do the same on the field as we do off the field.

It is a Culture.

3-17 last 20 against Florida. Do you concede that we cannot get out of our own Division of our own Conference ? Do you concede this ?

Do you know how we have faired against what actually were Final AP Poll Top 25 teams in the Coach Richt Era ?

Do you ?

18-20, in case you want the breakdown.

And, another 6 LOSSES to teams NOT RANKED IN THE FINAL AP POLL TOP 25.

We are not an Elite Football Program.

We should be.

We are The University of a State, only 3 others of which actually send more high school football players to the NFL than we do. California, Florida and Texas send more to the NFL than the State of Georgia does; that’s it.

5 others have higher attendance.

3 others have more in the NFL than we.

So, why are we 18-20 against Final AP Poll Top 25 teams in 9 years with another 6 Losses to teams not even ranked in the Final AP Poll Top 25 ?

Because of the Defensive Coaches fired by Coach Richt 3 weeks ago now ?

While we see all These Bulldogs on All These Other Program’s Coaching Staffs, what coach on Coach Richt Coaching Staff has anyone seeking him ? Go ahead, you can say it. Coach Richt, CEO, has NEVER had a good coach on his entire staff, ever coaching any position.

How many coaches on this “coaching staff” of Coach Richt today, have ever coached 1 day in the NFL ?

Answer is -0-.

We cannot evaluate talent, even when handed it.

We cannot teach discipline, to save our souls.

We cannot coach any aspect of the game.

We do not make good decisions.

We are not Elite. We averaged Number 14 in the Final AP Poll the previous dozen years, starting 1997; is that Elite ? Hardly, now we have our 1st Team since 1996 that is NOT RANKED in the Final AP Poll.

Tell me the 1 Big Bowl Game, just 1 mind you, that UGA got to play on the National Stage in 9 years now ?

5-Loss Florida State ? That was a Big Bowl Game for Elite Georgia ?

2005 Sugar after we Lost to Florida and Auburn, beat LSU and coached poorly to lose to West Virginia ?

2006 in the Peach Bowl against Number 19 Virginia Tech ?

2007 when we actually beat Florida & Auburn (Lost to vols) ? Number 19 again, Hawaii, this time. That’s an Elite Team in a Bowl Game we showed our stuff against ? Number 19 Hawaii ?

2008 last year after we Lost to Alabama, Florida and Georgia Tech ? Michigan State is an Elite Team in a Bowl Game we got to show our stuff against ?

Who are you trying to fool ?

This year, we had -0 offense against Oklahoma State and Lost, Lost LSU on Special Teams Kick-Off Return, destroyed by Florida when we yanked our Starting QB, Beat Tech and Lost to the vols. 6-6 Texas A&M is an Elite Team we are going to show our stuff against ?

We need to do a lot more than get rid of 3 defensive coaches.

Right ?

Hi Clueless.

-5 top 10 finishes in 1st 7 years
-60 wins in 6 years, 70 in 7
-4th winningest active coach in NCAA
-8th year in a row started the season ranked in top 20
-Nation’s longest streak of 8 or more wins, 12th year in a row
-Richt is one of 7 coaches in the history of the NCAA to get 80 wins in 8 years
-finished #2 in NCAA in 2007
-Should have been Natl Champs—we’re robbed by ESPN & LSU

Gator homers have no cred. get a clue schoolboy. Every great coach has a down year: Carroll, Stoops, Bryant, Paterno, Bowden, etc. I guess you think all those coaches stink too. Nice—clueless.

Ealey for Heisman? Please! He’s not knowshon, and knowshon didn’t even have a chance!

UGA will never have someone good enough for Heisman.

For the last 3 games, King’s ypc average has been higher than washaun’s. Just fyi. And those are the games when King got to eat food. Remember he had a broken jaw most of the season? For that reason, I think King is actually a little better of the two of them.

I’d think Ealey looks promising for a spot on the all-SEC teams each year until he leaves and that he’ll be an NFL prospect for sure, but UGA hasn’t given a player a full chance to be a Heisman candidate under Richt outside of DJ Shockley who was hurt by injuries most of all.

King or other tailbacks will also get carries, but I do think Ealey has the chance to separate himself as the number 1 next year. King can’t punish people like Ealey, who has speed, vision and power. King is a little faster and started tp play well, but Ealey looks special.

There is a way for Ealey to win the Heisman even rotating in with King. Reggie Bush did it in the 2005 USC offense–White and Bush rotated. Bush won by averaging about 9 ypc and touching the ball on kick offs and punt returns. The 2010 Bulldogs do remind you a bit of the 2005 USC Trojans. We’ve got the #1 and #2 ranked RB’s, the #1 and #2 ranked WR’s, the #1 and #2 ranked TE’s. And the #3 ranked QB. Bobo and Richt have to be licking their chops. The biggest difference is USC had a senior QB and Georgia will be starting a Freshman QB, so it might be 2011 until Georgia wins the Natl Championship a la USC style.

But, Miami’s Kosar and Oklahoma’s Jamelle Holliway both led their teams to Natl Championships as Freshman QB’s, so it can happen in 2010. It’s probably going to be that type of offense in 2010 with a freshman QB.

45ACP- If those connections are so strong why are coaches not wanting the job? Why has no ones names surfaced? Is CMR the only coach with connections? Trust MR? Did you trust he was going to beat Tennessee , KY , LSU , UF ,OSU this year?

Washaun “Early” wins the Heisman—–and then you wake up. Get real.

I agree that Erk is a deserving candidate for the HOF Our own coach is evidence of his influence across college football. Unfortunate that Erk doesn’t have a better advocate than the blogger mentioned, whose holier-than-thou screeds are interrupted occasionally by cheap shots at opponents, especially Florida’s coach.

Not that I’m counting, but doesn’t Georgia have as many secondary violations as UT?
