is ahead of schedule on his rehab and is expected to be 100% by early summer.
Good for him. He's a good kid and I would expect nothing less than to hear that he's working his tail off.
However, you and I both know that he won't be the same player in the 2012 season that he was pre-injury. Of course I expect him to get back to that player eventually, but I don't think it'll be this season.
With that said I wouldn't be surprised if he rushed for 1,000+ because he's just that good.
Good to hear. From everything I've heard about him he is a good, humble young man with an incredible work ethic. Sky is the limit for him.
Don't buy it...takes 2 years for a RB to be the same guy
Good to hear, though I wouldn't expect his pre-injury form until 2013
This might be the one season it would have been better to play them early, before he gets back up to speed.
I think the best thing for us to do is limit his carries to 10-15 per game for at least the first half of the season. Unless, he's in beast mode which he very well may not be.
Mike Davis and the Frosh who finished the season for you all should def. make it easier for your coaches to do so
Super..hope so for the kid.
I'm sure he will be limited in the beginning with the depth we have at RB. Wilds and Miles can carry some of the load and Mike Davis is going to have every opportunity to earn playing time once he gets on campus. I wouldn't be surprised to see Mike Davis end up being the #2 back this year.
Having gone through the acl surgery twice once on each knee I know what he is facing. With all the time he is putting in rehab I see no reason he wont be ready come fall. That being said all it takes is one wrong step and swelling will start and the set backs will be severe. I hope the kid does great other than one game in october but it will take a year for him to be 100% mentally and physically.
I'm very pleased and unsurprised to see Latt ahead of schedule.
As has been said, he'll be ginger to begin the season, which is completely understandable.
I agree with DNCC that he'll get about 15 carries a game to start the season. I think Davis will be #2 on the DC and get about 10 carries per game.
Thomas Brown is on line one. He's suggesting you revise your statement.
The Dawg-gone Podcast:
The perfect mix of eternal optimism and hatred for Georgia Tech. It's like real journalism, except not at all.
I cant wait to see him and olgetree go head to head
agreed, should be a great game in Columbia next year. will feature two of the top individual defensive players in the country in Jarvis Jones and Jadeveon Clowney.
i hope we have somebody to block him next time we play. If we don't turn it over against them we win big in the last one. Should be the same story next time. Turn it over and we lose. Protect Murray and we win.
Well since Sir Drinks a Lot left Columbia, they got a real good QB in Shaw. I think he is going to be limited not having Jeffrey, but they have a pretty solid football team. But I am still looking forward to a October meeting in Columbia
Life's tough, but it is tougher if you're stupid.
This is one of the rare yeats when playing yall early would be better. Latt wont be what he was right off the bat but by october he should be good to go. But it does give us time to break in a left tackle.
2 big keys for a UGA win are slowing the pass rush and not giving it away. Clowney will be hard to handle but with Jeffrey gone i think we can really focus on just stopping Latt. Plus Garcia hurt us last year with spme good passes. Shaw doesnt have close to the passing ability of Garcia.
Ha on the shaw/garcia comparison
You guys will have to prepare for Shaw running as well.
I agree...he will be running for his life most of the game. I'm not a homer by any means but I will be surprised if UGA does not have a top 3 defense next year. They will be lights out on the run...only issue now is depth in the secondary.
I seriously doubt he will be running for his life. We will be fielding a top 5 defense again this year. I look forward to it.
What does your defense being top 5 have to do with shaw not running for his life?
Shaw can do 2 things. Run the ball and protect the ball. Garcia was such a wildcard. He was much more talented than Shaw. I am not blind, I have watched yall both play. Shaw played 3 defenses that are even in the same ballgame as ours and that was Miss State, Florida, and Tennessee. In those games with Alshon Jeffrey who is the most talented WR I have ever seen at Socar and also a guy you absolutely have nothing in the pipeline that is similar he threw for 81, 87, and 155. And he had Lattimore for a good bit of the game he threw for 155 in. I think he is a smart kid but at 200 lbs as much as he runs he may not make it to October. Take away Alshon and you have no real threat at TE and the defense will be all eyes on 21. That doesnt mean you wont score but you wont score a ton. You scored 17 offensive points this year with all your weapons agaist us withou Jenkins being near what he became and without arguably the best MLB in college football Ogletree.
As far as you fielding a top 5 defense that all depends. Last year you played 2 QBs who are very good passers and that was Murray and Wilson. The only other team in a pro style offense with weapons that couldve given you fits was Tennessee if they had been 100% but they didnt have Bray or Hunter.
Socar will be good on defense but not a top 5 defense. Who is replacing Gilmore, Allen, Travian Robertson, and Melvin Ingram? Not being smart I just want to know.
We will see what happens. Its at your house and injuries etc. could come into play before we meet. Plus, alot of it will come down to our special teams. If we play you even on special teams and dont give you points we will win. Hell if we had done that this past year we win by 20.
