Nick Chubb tells media he decided he was coming back as Georgia Tech players tore up the hedges.— Logan Booker (@LoganMBooker) December 15, 2016
God bless you, Nick. God bless you.#COFH
Oh no. He’s going to tear Bobby Dodd Stadium apart with his bare hands, leaving a heap of rubble and doing $17 million worth of improvements in the process.
In all seriousness, Nick Chubb is a different kind of dude. If you’d told Bulldog fans before today that Sony Michel would come back to Athens for the chance to burnish his resume as the presumptive starter, they might have believed you. But Chubb’s return can really only be explained by a desire to end his Bulldog career on a better note and a love for his teammates and things red and black in general.
On another note, Chubb currently has 3,282 rushing yards in his Classic City career. That’s 3 yards behind Todd Gurley for second all-time in Georgia history. It’s 1,977 away from Herschel Walker’s all-time Georgia mark of 5.259 yards. If Nick can put together a big game in the Liberty Bowl (I think he might), and Georgia runs the ball better next season than they did this year (I think they will), he has an outside chance to become the leading rusher in Bulldog history, albeit in one more Sanford season than the Goal Line Stalker. Just something to keep an eye on. Until later . . .
