Default Florida's Starting RB out for rest of season..

Matt Jones is out for remainder of season with a knee injury suffered Saturday vs LSU.

He wasn't tearing up the stats sheet, but he had solidified the starting spot after a 176 yard performance vs Kentucky.

Agreed. This is what always frustrates me about Clemson. They never have a guy like Tajh Boyd out for our game with them (or any of their other big games). We have played them without Lattimore and without Shaw. Florida is now down a starting QB and RB. UGA is down pretty much all of their best players. I am sure we will be without someone important by the time we get to Clemson. I certainly hope not but it has been that way for the last few years.

Let Clemson play us without Boyd and lets see how they do.

They played us without Ellington in 2010. He came in for one play, but that was it....

Yeah, and two years ago Sammy had a hurt hand. That's why he dropped so many passes.

Default Re: Florida's Starting RB out for rest of season..

And remember when Spiller had turf toe and thats what caused him to fumble? Although a tater fan told me the other day that the Stoudt kid is better than Boyd and has been lighting up the HS defenses he has been playing against.

The "backup" is Mack Brown and he has one more yard than Matt Jones (340 to 339). However, Mack's yards per carry is only 3.7 yards. When you start getting below 4 yards a carry, then you aren't a terribly good running back.

This is why Matt Jones ended up being the starter. They didn't feel like they were getting good production out of Mack.

Georgia is the only team CU has played capable of causing them injuries.

Peake is out for the year, so it's not like Clemson's immune.

This hurts Florida in terms of depth. Still, like us with Wilds out I'm sure they'll have someone step up.

Yeah, but i don't consider that a big loss. I wouldn't consider Sammy a big loss for them. And to be honest, that is a compliment to Clemson. They just have a boat load of very good wide receivers. I watch them each Saturday and I am amazed at how well all of their guys can just go up and get the ball. As much as I hate Clemson, I can't knock their WR production. It is pretty incredible.

So I guess in that regard, they are doing what they are supposed to be doing.

I would be interested in seeing them play against FSU or SC without Boyd. I don't know much about their backups. I know Stoudt had a really good second half in a game this year, but I don't know much about his ability in big games.

I'm sorry, but it frustrates you how? That some kid that you've never met isn't hurt? I'm sure that's not what you mean but it comes across that way. We've beat Clemson with Boyd, Watkins, Hopkins, Spiller, all the other fast guys they've had the past 4 years, and so on. If we play any type of D this year, we'll beat them again. If not they win but I don't want anyone hurt just so we can. Boyd is a very good QB but in my humble opinion their O would do fairly well with Stout or the next guy so long as he gets the reps in practice. It's a system offense built on timing. Be physical with them and pressure the QB, disrupt that timing and the whole thing is a train wreck. They don't know how to go slow and that's what ultimately bites them.

Man...this really hurts UF.
I know they still have Mack Brown who has more yards, but they are based on a two-back system.
I don't doubt they have talent behind them, they are Florida, but the only guys I see "replacing" him are Valdez Showers and Kelvin Taylor, who have combined for 155 yards on 23 carries and no touchdowns in limited work, of course.

I will say this though, Brown is about 214 lbs, but Jones is 6'2 and about 230 (about teh size of Gurley). Showers is 190 and Taylor is 205..both good-sized backs, but Jones gave them that power back that could get tough yards. Know, I'm not so sure they have that.

I may have to give Florida the Cocktail Party still though...their D is just too good to be bested by a weakened UGA offense, and I think Florida will still be able to run down UGA's throat in a very low-scoring game...I'm talking like 17-10.

Really, the loss for Clemson would be Boyd...completely different offense when he isn't in (a credit to just how good he is, and that he knows the system in and out).

Both fanbases have to ask themselves this...do you feel good about your backup QB?
I feel good about Dylan Thompson...I'm not so sure how Clemson feels with Cole Stoudt.

Default Re: Florida's Starting RB out for rest of season..

I believe Mack Brown, and Fred Taylor's son (forget his name) are better runners than Matt Jones. However, Matt Jones was their best blocking RB. So for that reason he is a big loss for a team that doesn't block well to begin with.
