Give the man an inch and he gets you three yards, every time. That's my kind of back.

Feed the Beast!
Exactly. Wilds can carry the freight. Let's give him the credit (and the number of carries) he deserves!

I hardly think a free education, free tutoring, free rent, free food, free training is having them by the balls. but that's just me.

I say let him rest and heal up for the ECU game, and play Williams along with Wilds and Carson, and that should be more than enough - also with Cooper running in Wildcat. Then hopefully Davis is full go against UGA...

That is one way to look at it. And it is perfectly resonable to argue that they do not have to accept the free tutoring, education, rent, food and free training. They could decline a scholarship altogether and work with a trainer for a year while getting ready for the draft.

We all know that the system is rigged so that that is not a viable route right now. Ask Maurice Claurett.

And you have to maintain your education in order to play college ball - it is not an option. So even if they said, "no thank you" to the "free education, free tutoring, free rent, free food, and free training" and decided to get paid strictly off of the merchandise and ticket sells they drive to the NCAA and universities they can not do so.

I agree. I think he should just take the week off to heal if he is hurting that bad

Wilds needs more carries anyways. Shon put up good effort last week too, really wish they would have tried him at DB this summer.

the only bad thing is that bruised ribs take a while to heal. even after you feel like they are much better it only takes a bump in the side to upset the shit out of them again.

in my opinion he would be hurting again after 1 or 2 series unless he waits several games for them to heal properly.

I agree, as I said in another post when Davis 1st came here I really liked him & thought he was gonna be a star. He still could be & has gotten some National attention. But, he just gets hurt way too much. Period...
Let the younger Bucks do it.

I admire his courage, but I think he tells people he's good to go when really he's not.

Where we are now offensively takes me back to the UCF game last year.

DT was in for an injured Shaw. MD was gimpy. Wilds got hurt. Carson couldn't hang onto the ball.

DT wasn't the dual threat that CS was and we couldn't spread out UCF's defense.

So we finally went to the I formation in the 4th quarter, which slowed the game down and gave us a chance to win.

Default Re: Mike Davis "doubtful" vs ECU

It would be great to see Mike sit this week. Get Wilds and Williams in a good rotation and keep Carson for some screens and what not (bc he is fast). Against GA, we could get Mike back in action and rotate between him, wilds, and Williams. I mean, hello. That mixed with the deep threat of jones and Byrd, as well as the wildcat with COOP. Gimme a break lol
