Washaun Ealey Will Not Start Saturday Due To Fumbles

Because of the costly turnovers running back Washaun Ealey has committed over the last few games, he will not be the starter when the Bulldogs take the field Saturday night against Colorado. 

Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said Ealey will see some playing time, but when a running back continues to fumble the way the Ealey is, he will lose some snaps to other tailbacks. Running backs coach Bryan McClendon said Ealey just needs to tighten up on his technique and that will limit some of the mistakes.

If there is one thing certain about Saturday's game, it's that the running game has to be better, because 124 rush yards per game, which is 11th in the SEC, is not going to translate in to wins.
