How badly are Freak & Tre hurt?
Tre was in street clothes on the sideline. I thought they said he had issues with that ankle before. Not sure. So maybe they wanted to be careful with him and have him ready for Georgia.
I didn't realize Freak got hurt.
They walked Freak off the field during that abomination of a last drive by AU.
Freak looked like his knee just got hit pretty hard, I'm worried about the dreaded high ankle sprain with Vadal.
Hill limped off the field 3 times and took himself out once. I was suprised that they played him late in the 4th quarter. We cannot afford an injury there. Blue and Hillard have been very disappointing this year and Magee did not have a good game either.
I thought Magee's Knee was down.
Washington showed no drop off from Turner. I am concerned a bit though about Freak. He was already a bit hobbled. We cant afford to lose him with UGA coming up.
We definitely need more consistency from our backup RBs. I will say this though. When most were getting touches the D knew what was coming next so there werent much holes to run through.
I just remember one run by Hilliard that showed why he is not Hill. Hilliard came into the hole .. the initial path collapsed but a path opened on the left ... Hilliard missed it and pushed forward into the crowd. Hill would have cut left and made the extra yardage. McGee would have done the same. Don't know about Blue.
Hilliard only seems to know how to run straight. He runs into more piles than any of our running backs.
Blue doesn't hit the hole hard enough and would have been tackled after a short gain.
I agree that both Hill and Magee would have hit it hard for a bigger gain and also because they are harder to tackle.
Not sure what Hilliard's issues are but it seems Blue is still tentative. He looked to be running into the pile protecting his repaired leg last night. He hit the holes with certainty last year now he doesn't. I would hope and expect this to get better as the year passes but it may be next year before he is the old Blue.
