08/10/2012 - With the dismissal of TB Isaiah Crowell, senior RB Richard Samuel will now most likely be seeing time at both TB and FB this fall. The 245-pound Samuel was planning to become strictly a fullback before Crowell's dismissal. "I understand the need," Samuel said. "There are certain areas where we have needs and right now those are tailback and fullback. If it were a completely different position, that might be overkill. But I enjoy both positions I'll be playing." - The Sports Xchange

09/10/2011 - Georgia coach Mark Richt said he will likely stick with the tailback rotation of Richard Samuel and true freshman Isaiah Crowell. Samuel finished with 12 yards on seven carries, while Crowell had 60 yards on 15 carries. "We'll keep competing and keep getting better," Richt said. "There's some things understandably that Isaiah has to get better at in the protection area, just knowing who to block and how to get it done. I thought he was eager to block, and he did make some very nice blocks. There were a couple of times he missed an assignment here or there. But Richard needs reps, too." - The Sports Xchange
