I hope this recent letter finds you doing well. I heard you rough outing last week against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. You know, 11 carries for 40 yards isn’t very good. Just think, a year ago, you had over 100 yards as Georgia beat Mississippi State.
Anyway, I digress. I wanted to drop you a note and tell you something: Thank you.
Thank you for being a complete and utter mess up both on and off the field. Becuase due to your mistakes, this has opened the door for Tood Gurley and Keith Marshall to come and step in. Needless to say Isaiah, Georgia fans are pleased.
You see Isaiah, no one person is bigger than any program. To paraphrase from one of my favorite movies, L.A. Confidental (you’d like it, btw-it is about guns, drugs and hookers): Now, I know you think you’re the A-number one hotshot. Well, here’s the juice: if you get out, there’ll be ten more tailbacks to take your place tomorrow.
This video is NSF…well, Isaiah, you aren’t working, but I wouldn’t listen to this within earshot of anyone who would get offended.
You were the #1 RB in the entire nation coming out of high school, and yet, Georgia is in a better spot without than with you. Marshall and Gurley (and let’s not forget about Malcome) are as good-or, better-runners than you, and they don’t pat their helmet after every couple of runs. In fact, Todd Gurley leads the SEC in rushing yards with very few attempts.
Isaiah, this is not supposed to be a mean letter. I hope you get your life straightened out. You are facing some deep trouble back in Athens. Carrying around a stolen piece? Come on. I hope this whole lesson shows you that you are just a football player, and while you have incredible talents, there is nothing special about you. I know you have been told your entire life you were hot stuff. I know before you came to Athens, Coach Richt and the fans had appointed you #1. Yes, you were SEC Freshman of the Year last year. But Isaiah, you are replaceable. Not only are you replaceable to the coaching staff as a player, but you have been replaced and forgotten in the hearts and minds of Georgia fans.
I hope your fall from grace as woken you up and given you a dose of reality. In case it hasn’t sunk in completely, here is an update from Athens: we are better off without you.
Good luck with your future endeavors.
