Default Spurrier: Davis May Not Be Available For Aggies

Quote:
“Mike Davis has been hurt, he hasn’t practiced all week,” coach Steve Spurrier told the Sportstalk radio network after Wednesday’s practice. “I don’t know if he’d even be able to start or not. But we got Brandon Wilds, he’s ready to go. Shon Carson, Dave Williams, so we’re in good shape there.”

I really hate to hear this, hopefully Mike can get healthy. Good thing we have a stable of backs.

I sense a coach who doesnt want to risk further injury by putting an already hurt player in a game he doesnt even have to be in for us to have a shot at winning.

Madonna is 56 years old.
Mike Davis is 21 years old.

I doubt he's a "premadonna"

Oh, did you mean PRIMA DONNA?

Quote:
pri·ma don·na
ˌprimə ˈdänə,ˌprēmə/
noun
noun: prima donna; plural noun: prima donnas; noun: primadonna; plural noun: primadonnas
the chief female singer in an opera or opera company.
synonyms: leading soprano, leading lady, diva, star, opera star, principal singer
"this scene was added to give the prima donna another aria"
a very temperamental person with an inflated view of their own talent or importance.
synonyms: ego, self-important person, his nibs, temperamental person, princess, diva, pooh-bah; informaldrama queen
"a city council filled with prima donnas"
No, I do not think that is an accurate description of Mike Davis.

hahahahaha - this is funny. I think he meant the second. I don't think Davis acts like he is above the team at all. Dude took a pounding last year. Probably trying to take it easy. Spurrier is probably getting annoyed because he is trying to scheme and Davis is riding the bike on the sideline. Or Spurrier is effing with everyone. Pretty sure we will see Davis next Thursday.

Yep, He seems to pull himself out of games a lot. Not sure what's up with that, but it is very noticeable. He needs to toughen up. Maybe he's trying to save himself for the NFL.

His lingering injuries last year were never properly explained and he seemed to get "dinged" a lot.

Sometimes I think I'd give up a tiny bit of speed in favor of more fat -- not muscle, but good old-fashioned fat -- on some of these players. Fat is what protects the body from collisions, not muscle (not to the same degree).

Some of these players are nearly 100% muscle (not literally, of course) which gives them tremendous athletic ability but it also keeps them from being as durable as they could be otherwise.

I think Davis needs to have a good talk with Coach and be honest and say, "Coach, Brandon is great a plowing the field and I think he could help us wear down a defense. It might make sense for him to get the bulk of carries early to wear them down and then let me come in with fresh legs. If I get a decent hole, I'm going to take it to the house."

Of course, Brandon could take it all the way with a nice hole to run through, too. He's got a very good set of wheels himself.

Personally, I think Wilds is the key to this year. If he stays healthy he can a) wear down defenses and create nice screens and blocking where needed; b) carry the load if Davis gets hurt.

And, yes, Brandon could use a few pounds of lard on him as well.

We've got to keep these guys from getting hurt.

Couldn't agree more. I think we can get by TAMU and ECU with just Wilds, Williams and Carson but we really need Mike for the Georgia game.

Sounds like Spurrier talk. Both coaches said he was fine last night and he's probably trying to light a fire if he thinks maybe MD is taking it easy. He did this with Clowney a few times. Maybe it's wishful thinking but it seems weird.

Shoot, I don't even think we'll need Davis against Myles Garrett and the rest of A&M's defensive squad. We could probably put Landon Ard back there let him run up and down the field all day long. I hear he's put on 65 lb's this summer and is now up to over 170!
