Default 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.

Ditto. Wilds would be my short yardage back.

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.

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.

yeldon has only had one back to back game in his career going into this season of 20 carries or 20 touches. todd gurley has never had back to back weeks of at least 20 touches from scrimmage.
mike's 2nd and 3rd starts last season were back to back weeks of 20 touches. then we had a bye then he had a stretch of 5 straight weeks where the fewest amount of touches he had was 22.

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.

Maybe he should talk to Hampton and them about leaving early.

It won't matter. Davis already wanted to leave when he wasn't the feature back to begin with and with the preseason hype of being a projected top RB draft pick he certainly isn't going to be motivated to play dinged and risk his chance at the next level. Hampton has plenty of examples to look at and tell he wasn't ready either but it still didn't stop him. Some guys come to college because they want to represent a school and win games and others just want an opportunity to showcase themselves and spend as little time as possible auditioning for the NFL.
