Washuan Ealey Meets Requirements for Admission

S L O W tuesday. But this is pretty big news for a backfield that needs as much competition as possible, if you ask me.

Washuan Ealey has met requirements for entrance into UGA. It had been widely speculated that the RB out of ECI was a borderline possibility for Athens this fall. But after completing a summer school course last week, it appears the stud signee is ready for red and black action.

It should be interesting to see if he can now avoid a redshirt. I still say the RB by committee thang is fine and great for some games on our beastly schedule.

But at some point we'll need a back to step to the forefront and say...

"I'll get us those three yards
Coach....move the chains."

Call it the "Moreno Affect". If he can play, he will play. And I am betting he can play. If he can block, he will play a great deal. It wouldn't hurt my feelings to average about 200 yards per game rushing. Sprinkle in about 12 - 15 play actions to Green and Company and we could have a very special season. Assuming we remember how to wrap up.... Only a little more than 2 months to go.

BTW, I hope and pray they are all slow news days from here out. Big news is bad news.

You're right - doubt CMR will make the mistake of redshirting a kid who's already ready for action 'tween the hedges.

I don't mind the SLOW news, even expect it. But I wouldn't run out of Kleenex if some BIG news developed outta Knutsville or that swamp land about a hunnerd miles south of you.

Just sayin'.
