Last year Florida was destroyed by injuries. UGA was a monster against us last year but after that game UGA was severely weakened by injuries for several games. They got some players back last part of the season.
The season lasts over 3 months. Part of winning in the SEC is not losing too many players. We lost Davis and Matulis in the last two weeks.
We lost players on the D side too. There were other players who transferred that I really thought could help us this year. I think coaches may have misjudged who they ran off.

You are closer to the team than me what is wrong with Jasper Sasser? Should he not be able to do returns yet?

It seems like almost every other team gives playing time to highly regarded true freshmen on offense but us (skill positions). I realize my mind is exaggerating it, but as has already been mentioned, UGA played four running backs including two true freshmen. Williams is now a redshirt freshman and didn't get a single carry? I'm confused.

People will say we were too far behind to worry about trying to run the ball and Williams's pass protection leaves something to be desired, but I think that's garbage. We should have tried to sustain drives when we were down by 10 by lining up in the I and running fresh backs out there. If it failed, so what, we lost anyway. Also 10 points is far from insurmountable and doesn't warrant going to the chuck - and - hope offense. We went to the run when we were down by 10 at UCF.

given the two choices, the one many fear is true, the above vs the alternate... overlooked given the situation or due to inexperience, hope for the alternate.

Being a bit irritated with SS, if this is the case, is likely justifiable but even still hope, for what ever reasons, SS simply overlooked and underused a legit talent. otherwise he is 4th on a depth chart in which #1 is injured (and has been for while), #2 is ordinary and #3 is Carson.

I hope to see Williams get the majority of the carries against ECU. It drives me crazy to see Nick Chubb contributing as a true freshmen for UGA, meanwhile we're playing Shon Carson who hasn't contributed anything besides one good run against Florida last year.
