I don't want us depending on a guy that pulls himself out of games when the game is on the line. He's done that repeatedly now for two seasons and he can't even handle 20+ carries a game without falling apart.

He's a good back but I think his NFL prospects are dismal. Scouts aren't stupid. If he can't handle the pounding or can't play with some pain, they won't be the least bit interested.

He needs to forget the Heisman, the NFL, etc. and focus on playing for two more years at USC and making it back into the starting lineup.

Wilds can handle the load and Williams should step up as our #2.

I appreciate what Carson does but he just doesn't have the moves.
I couldn't have said it any better. I use to really like the guy & thought he was gonna be a really good player.

If Mike took himself out of the game then I have to believe he's hurt. I don't question his heart at all. What he needs to do is stay the hell off twitter & other social media with inflamatory remarks about fans, coaches, etc. Put your head down, do your job, & quit criticizing the people that make your scholarship possible & who spend their hard earned money to watch you play.

I seriously have no idea what he's even talking about with the fans disrespecting the team. The vast majority stayed in the stadium until very late in a game that was no longer in doubt.

You are probably right...and those teams only carry a few RBs on their rosters...they leave more room for DBs and other. Tough league...

What Mike Davis was talking about is goin on right here in this thread!!! Bashing a player who gives his heart to this team and you assholes turn on him. Those of you questioning anything about Mike should be ashamed and banned. Reminds me of old Gamecock fans giving up after a loss.

Spurrier teleconference: "Mike Davis is sort of doubtful... bad bruised rib, and it's sort of painful for him right now." Wilds would start.

Mike Davis hasn't been the same since the Missouri game last year. He took a major beatdown last season. We need to rotate Wilds and that Williams kid. Let's see what some fresh legs can do, Carson is ok at best, but we need a spark at running back. If we can't extend the offensive drives our defense is gonna wear out every single time even if we're scoring enough to keep up with the other teams

I've busted my ribs on occasion. There is no way I could go 100% then and I do not expect Mike to be able to now. Not much helps but time. I had rather have him healthy later than to have him keep injuring them.

Agree. Kinda dumb to me that anyone would think he doesn't want to play with all he has invested. If he comes back too early he possibly gets banged up enough to miss most of the year.

Still say the twitter stuff needs to stop. Not doing him or the team any good.

On this particular subject, this post clearly is the best I have ever read!

Well done, I totally 100% agree!

I will add.....

Mike Davis can be all he wants to be, but I think he needs to toughen up. It's not helping his cause that all summer long, all fans watched over and over again the Herchel and Bo SEC storied documentaries and saw where both played through much pain and injury throughout their career.....but that's what it takes to be a premier SEC running back. It is up to him, but I believe he needs to do some soul searching on the rest of his career here.

I don't know why Shon Carson gets the playing time he does. Nothing seems to ever progress with him.

I hope we see a lot of Wilds and Williams going forward.

Line needs to do better opening holes and blocking. This group is too big, experienced and knowledgeable to have gotten pushed around the way they did the other night. And if that is as good as they can do, then we are in for a long season.

Never commented here before but I've said all along that Mike Davis is soft. He has plenty of talent but he always seems hurt and don't forget the fact that he almost transferred out of the program.

The same people who say mike is "soft" are the same people who have never put on pads before and play 60 minutes in an SEC football game. Geezus, give the "KID" a break.

I've heard an injury to the ribs is pretty effing painful. But, this is why we recruit several(looking at you Scott ;0 ) bc sometimes we need the next guy to step up. To Mike, a speedy recovery.

I love how Davis tweets that after the game, but put him in the post game press conference and see if he says anything like that. Highly doubt he says that in front of the media. This is why a twitter ban should be imposed. You can be bold when you don't have to look someone in the eye when you're talking. Players can say whatever whenever and Davis tweets too much thats football related. He's the worst for it actually. One year it was him being pissed that he wasn't the starter when he thought he earned it. yadda yadda yadda. Makes him come off as a a very temperamental person with an inflated view of his own talent.
