Mike Davis "doubtful" vs ECU
 
http://www.postandcourier.com/articl...-east-carolina

WTF.

Is being a USC star RB a CURSE? Every season since 2010...our star RB has not made it through the whole season:

2010; Lattimore KO'd in the FSU game
2011/2012: Lattimore blown knees
2013: How many times did Davis have to come out due to injury?
2014: 4 days into the season...and Davis is likely out for a bit


Well, let Wilds, Carson and Williams run it.

I say go ahead and give Williams the start, or at least the bulk of the snaps.

It is hard to be a runningback on any college football team.

It is an exception to the rule to find a runningback who averages 20 carries per game and not miss a game or two during the season.

Ditto. Wilds would be my short yardage back.

I thought Williams looked great in the spring and summer practices. Not sure why the hold up but I aint the coach!

Wilds would be my starter.

Gurley and Marshall were injured last year for UGA on and off. That said, Davis needs to heal up or play through some pain.

At this point Davis should just be viewed as a bonus player and the coaches just need to look for the next guy up. He's never going to be dependable and will be leaving after this season anyway. Showcase the guys who have given all for the program and prepare for the future.

The school should ink a deal with Advil.

read Williams just needs to learn how to be a college RB w/ out the ball in his hands.

The hold up is the coach.

The duo of Wilds first and Williams second would be perfect.:woo:

Why? Wilds did alright with the few chances we gave him. I've seen nothing from Williams even in practice to indicate he can be the heir apparent.

I agree Wilds's effort was off the charts.

Eh, I dunno. The allure of the unknown I guess. Wilds is solid. He did great for us when Latti went down.

Williams was in yellow jersey some of fall camp, thus putting him behind.

Save Davis for UGA. Just make sure he doesn't get injured walking to class.
