In a move to make up for the loss of RB’s Washuan Ealey and Caleb King, it looks like CMR has decided to move ILB Richard Samuel back to the RB position he played at two years ago. Samuel red shirted last year due to injury and was moved back to his more natural position of ILB this year. He gained weight up to 243lbs and was projected #2 on the LB depth chart.
UGA fans aren’t happy about the move as they feel he has done more than his fair share for the team. This move reeks of CMR’s lack of confidence in the remaining RB’s Carlton Thomas, Ken Malcome and All-world recruit Isaiah Crowell to get the job done.
Samuel averaged 4.6 yards per carry in his two seasons running the football. ALL-SEC RB Marcus Lattimore averaged 4.8 last year.
Samuel arrived on campus as a young 17 yr old and was thrust into the mix as a RB. He has two years running against SEC defenses and has proven he can run between the tackles. He may not be the home run threat the Bulldogs need, bu the does bring some experience and leadership to a position that desperately needs it.
What say you UGA fans? Good move or not?
