I think that's a fair statement... what the hell was he doing on that kick return though, gotta let that one roll if you can't set up under it.
He really couldn't. If you can't tell the HUGE difference In those players ,you can't be helped.
Now you say that. This time last year Crowell was next Herschel.
Who happens to be behind Gurley...
Big difference between those two, one being a lazy attitude and hanging with wrong people. Gurley is nothing like last years injury prone back.
Dawgs on Top!
Gurley is legit as I've followed the kid throughout his high school career at Tarboro where he led his team to 3 straight State Championships. Marshall is balling as well right now and he retained his speed pretty well even though he's 25 pounds heavier than he was at this time in 2011. I'm still deciding on Yeldon as I was at the Michigan Game and was one of the few Bama fans that didn't crown him after that game.
I'm a Bama fan but if this one particular current Georgia High School RB were my son.......I'd give the following a very close look when deciding where to attend college next year.
-Current Depth Chart especially in terms of guys 1 class ahead of mine and whether they are getting PT/carries
-Team Rushing Yards "per carry".......good indicator of OLine level of blocking. I'd also look at the team yards per carry in conference games only as another barometer to "normalize" the data to some extent
-Current RBs committed in the 2013 Class
-2014 RBs already committed and/or likely to commit
It's one thing to be confident in your ability.......it's another to go into a loaded backfield where playing time will be sparse...regardless of your talent. RBs don't get drafted early if they aren't able to show their skill on the field in college. I'd prefer the aforementioned kid have his chance to shine than end up at a school without the chance to show his skill.
Tough Decision....IMO.....although I know what I'd have my kid do.

Gurley would be starting at Bama
He wouldn't be starting but he would certainly get his fair share of carries. JMHO
I thought Shoeless had the dumbest post of the day on lockdown, but like always you come through and post something totally, utterly, and incomprehensibly stupid. Congratulations, -1
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
After fumbling twice he wouldn't play the rest of the season. That's the truth.
that's a negative ghost rider.
Is this the new AJ>Julio discussion that we will talk about the rest of their careers
Steve Spurrier is a God, and Mark Richt worships him
You can go ahead and shut this thread down. Gurley isnt on the same level as Yeldon
It was a screen pass....Gurley would've scored with that much room.

Gurley still better IMO. I would like to see stats from both with yeldon actually starting as well.
I dont care what it was. Anyone with a set of eyes can see who is better
Ok guy, we will see who gets freshman of the year.
He doesn't even get the carries that Gurley does either
Yeah he's pretty freaking good but scoring on a screen after the whole D blitzed and left him wide open hardly makes him that much better.
Who cares if it was a screen. The eye test is all I need. No one is saying Gurley isnt good....Yeldon is just better
Don't run to your homeboard like a little girl. You can discuss it here LOL
And then runs back and makes it VIP LOL
Gurley is the better back... Yeldon just plays behind one of the best OL in cfb history
