College Football Notes

  • Once again, blog darling Javarris James led the University of Miami in rushing with 113 yards on 19 carries. Also, once again, James did most of his rushing damage by breaking off a couple of long runs, one of 49 yards and another of 20 yards. Right now, James is not the most consistent runner by far. He mixes decent runs with worthless ones, but give him enough carries and he will break at least one really long one during the game. The ability to do that is where his true worth lies.

  • Urban Meyer promised that he would use Tim Tebow more in the Georgia game than he did in Florida's loss to Auburn and true to his word, he gave Tebow twice as many touches against Georgia (6). Unfortunately, Tebow did not exactly reward Meyer's confidence in his ability since Tebow had his worth game as a collegiate player. He ran only two successful plays (20-yard run and 6-yard run both on first downs) compared to four unsuccessful plays, one of which culminated in a fumble that Georgia converted into a touchdown three plays later. This is the sort of game that shows that Tim Tebow is mortal after all.

  • Allow me to take this time to recognize Adarius Bowman, formerly a UNC Tarheel until he was forced out by John Bunting after being charged with marijuana possession and now a wide receiver for the Oklahoma State Sooners, who in his first year of eligibility after transferring, has only 36 receptions for 791 receptions and 9 touchdowns. If only UNC did not have to be so holier-than-thou, then Bowman would be putting up those numbers in a Carolina Blue uniform instead.
