Georgia freshman tailback Todd Gurley not only rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns and returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown Saturday, but is getting it done off the field.
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt think he would mind anyone knowing that he got a couple A‚Äôs this summer,‚Äù said Bulldogs coach Mark Richt, who said Gurley has shown up to everything he‚Äôs been asked to do.
In other words, the Tarboro, N.C., native is doing the things that were lacking at the position last year when Isaiah Crowell and others had issues.
‚ÄúHe has a good attitude and he doesn‚Äôt seem to have any type of entitlement issues,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúBut if a guy starts having a lot of success early, it can maybe change him or make him feel too comfortable, too. I haven‚Äôt sat down with him and talked, but we will keep an eye on him.‚Äù
Ken Malcome, who started the opener, did not practice Tuesday, but Georgia said it wasn‚Äôt because of his sprained wrist but because he ‚Äúwas not feeling well.‚Äù
Coaches haven‚Äôt announced the starter this week.
‚ÄúKen‚Äôs the starter,‚Äù Gurley said. ‚ÄúHe was the starter the last game. He‚Äôs still going to be the starter this game.‚Äù
