9-15-14: When you have a Heisman hopeful in running back Todd Gurley you give him the ball whenever you can. Georgia didn’t abide by this rule in their 38-35 loss to rival South Carolina. The Bulldogs had a first-and-goal on the Gamecocks' 4 yard line down three points with a little over five minutes remaining. Hand the ball off to Gurley. Instead, Hutson Mason was called for intentional grounding to set Georgia back Marshall Morgan missed a 28-yard field goal.
