Question: Where have all the B-backs gone?This puzzles me. When CPJ was hired, I envisioned a pipeline of 235 lb sledgehammers funneling into GT. Jon Dwyer was here. Anthony Allen transferred in immediately. I thought Daniel Drummond was going to be the next great B-back. We heard repeatedly about how the position routinely gained 1000-1500 yards. And that was true, all the way back to Ga. Southern. Yesterday, the position gained 58 yards on 16 carries. Laskey seems to run hard. Sims shows some talent. But Laskey is listed at 208 and Sims at 222. Thoughts anyone?
"That’s going to be a position by committee. You’ll probably see two or three different guys play there."Paul Johnson on the B-Back position, currently a battle between David Sims, Zach Laskey, Broderick Snoddy, and Charles Perkins.
"you can keep your morals and bcs record of 2-13. #notwinningisfun said no one ever"This tweet is from a friend I went to high school with, who now goes to Auburn. I poked at him about paying a QB, to which he responded we needed to based on recent years. I told him they can keep their SEC Speed, we'll keep our ACC Morals. Should we make this a thing?
"Is there a parade, possibly, for all the big fatties?" - Jay Finch, on being named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List. The award is given each year to the nation's top center.AJC.com
"[Julian Burnett is] probably not going to play [this season due to an undisclosed injury]. I'm sure it's really tough on him. He's a heck of a competitor and a great football player, but there are bigger things in life than football. You have to be safe." - Coach Paul Johnson (Source: http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/rapid-reports/post/18067912)
