Un-redshirting Moreno

You could say, with the likes of Chubb, Michel, Marshall, Douglas, and Turman ahead of him from the get go, new running back signee Tae Crowder is bound for a redshirt in 2015. But as Emerson reminds, attrition can sneak up on McLendon's troops quickly.
Crowder at this point is depth. But so was Douglas two years ago. So you never know.
Of course, even though much has been made about Coach Schotty carrying on the pro-style tradition at Georgia, we don't know how much the new offensive coordinator will favor the run versus the pass. However, unless one of the quarterbacks tears it up this spring and summer, we can surely expect a lot of Nick Chubb and his Committee.

Attrition/injury/NCAA judgments may be the only way Crowder avoids a redshirt. But I'm glad to see the staff add a running back to this year's class, even when their JUCO commitment in Carson fell through.

Somewhere deep down, I like to think not using Knowshon to his full availability (even just a little in 2006 to spell Kregg Lumpkin) still sticks in Richt's craw.
