People want him to be an every down back but he's not there yet. To me he is a Cadillac Williams that would excel greatly with a player he can split carries with. Williams was never able to live up to being a feature back in the NFL but was a tremendous talent none the less.
The constant Crowell bash will definitely make Marshall want to come. The incessant hate/rumors created on him is sickening. Hes been injured, get over it.

I wish everyone who's hating on IC would take a deep breath and relax. None of the rumors have been substantiated.
He had a lot of pressure put on him, and he performed well when healthy this year. We don't win against Tenn without his efforts, playing through injury. Anyone calling him out for not playing though pain is a complete jacka$$ because you don't know how much pain he is in. It's not just disrespectful, it's flat out ignorant. Especially with his ankle injury...if you can't make cuts, can't push off that leg, you're not going to be a very effective running rack.
Does IC have some maturing to do? Absolutely. His suspensions alone suggest that. He's a true freshman, and had more pressure put on him than any true freshman I can remember during Richt's era. Even Stafford wasn't expected to "save the program" from week one. Hopefully he grows up fast, because we'll need him to be our guy again next year.
His future with us is extremely bright. He's admitted to not being in the best shape, and a full year of S&C will fix that. It'll make it easier to play through pain as well.
For a true freshman running back to make it through the SEC season in one piece is a pipe dream, and IC didn't make it, but that doesn't mean he didn't play a major part in our successful turn around this season.
Good luck to Isaiah this offseason in the weightroom, classroom, and film room. We need you for 2012.
If Meshaun Ealey, Dontavious Jackson and Caleb King had did what they were supposed to, we would not be discussing this.
Y'all try and keep some perspective, please.
He is soft and tempermental. He is also young and very talented. I hope he takes advantage of the opportunity in front of him.
This is a Coach Richt decision, not ours.
