Let me be the first to agree with Georgia’s dominant duo.
Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall are the country’s most talented running back tandem, and they’re tired of being called ‘Gurshall’.
Of course, Gurshall was logical since it combined the trio of Gurley, Marshall and Herschel, but it’s time to officially put the nickname to bed. Gurley and Marshall agree, via Macon Telegraph:
“I never really liked the name,” Gurley said Thursday. “I always said that, since it came up.”
“I don’t like it at all,” Gurley said. “I just don’t.”
“Sometimes I’ll be out somewhere and someone will be like: ‘What’s up Gurshall?’” Marshall said. “That’s not my name.”
Neither player offered any other replacement nicknames, but they did tell Seth Emerson their weights. Marshall said he’s up to 220 pounds, while Gurley says he still weighs 232 pounds…of raw talent and bullying behavior.
Hopefully we’ll see this against Clemson.
