Richt Ready to Cancel "Gurshall" Nickname
Georgia coach Mark Richt says he would like to punt the nickname of Gurshall. It's a combination of the names of running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.
It was coined last season as an homage to Bulldogs legendary running back Herschel Walker. Both Gurley and Marshall had outstanding freshman campaigns, and Richt says it's time for them to be honored for their individual efforts. The best thing for Richt is that both guys will be back next season.
"They were so productive as freshmen. You would love to think they could get better every year. I'm not sure they can as far as productivity is concerned. I know they're going to be better route runners. They're going to be better pass protectors. I think they are going to understand the system better. I think they'll be in better condition. I'm really excited to see what they can do."
