UGA Will Be Without Another RB Versus Boise State

To say Georgia is counting on true freshman running back Isaiah Crowell is an understatement.  By the time the season kicks off, Crowell might be the only tailback on the Dawgs’ roster.

Over the summer, Washaun Ealey transferred out and Caleb King failed to qualify academically.  With UGA’s top two backs from 2010 and 2009 gone, the coaching staff moved tailback-turned-linebacker Richard Samuel back to tailback.  In the press, backup rusher Carlton Thomas began to get more mentions as a possible sidekick to Crowell as well.

But The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported yesterday that Thomas has been suspended for the first game of the season.  Thomas “violated team rules back in the spring,” according to the AJC.

With Thomas now out of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game with Boise State, the Bulldogs will have Crowell, redshirt freshman Ken Malcome and Samuel as scholarship running backs on opening night. 

In other words, Crowell had better be all he’s cracked up to be.  And he better not sprain an ankle or stub a toe between now and the final whistle of Week One.
