Hard Knocks 101.
That’s the class Georgia’s freshman running back, Isaiah Crowell, checked into last night in the Georgia Dome.
In hindsight, the curriculum for this opening game didn’t seem too difficult for Crowell’s debut.
A flashy quarterback named Kellen Moore from the Mountain West conference leading his team of nearly 30 pounds lighter (average) into the hostile territory was something Crowell, his teammates and coaches thought they were prepared to handle. But the Broncos dominated the game 35-21 at the Georgia Dome.
The dazzle of the dome, the pomp of college pregame festivities and the hype leading up to the Chick-Fil-a-Kickoff Classic would create the perfect podium for this 5-star recruit to transition into a promising college football career.
By all standards, this would be a big night for a guy who was just a few months out of high school with a stellar career that earned him a scholarship to the University of Georgia and many offers from other major universities, including Alabama.
So how did he score in his first college game?
The grades are posted.
