3. Georgia football lets the young guys tote the rock
Daijun Edwards sits in one of the best running back rooms in college football, and he gets to learn from the likes of James Cook, Zamir White, and Kendall Milton while awaiting his turn.
The youngster has seen some action toward the end of some of these blowouts, and the way he runs has surely won over fans already. Saturday should be a time for him to shine.
For the year, Edwards has 33 carries for 113 yards and one touchdown. The beauty of Edwards’ numbers is everybody in the stadium knows he is getting the ball. When he enters the game, it’s mop-up duty.
It’s time to let Edwards get some reps earlier in the game and share with load with Kenny McIntosh. It is senior day for the Dawgs, and while I understand Cook and White need to play — we would not want them to get banged up during this game.
Let Thunder and Lightning get their carries for senior day, but let Edwards and McIntosh tote the rock after halftime. There is no harm in allowing him to get more than a couple of carries. It keeps White and Cook healthy while allowing him to get some more experience.
Georgia football should have no problem with offensive production on Saturday. They need to come out guns blazing, though, and put the Bucs away fast.
They are the undisputed No.1 team in the country for a reason, so it’s time to run over the next opponent standing in the Dawgs way. No letting off the gas, run up the score, and produce a smothering win over an opponent you should beat by seven touchdowns.
