Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. http:///...yan-zimmerman-jersey . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. ATHENS, Ga. -- With Georgias offense in a slump and the Bulldogs season at crisis stage, its time to re-invest in the teams proven stars.That means more work for running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel this week against Kentucky. There also may be a bigger role for Isaiah McKenzie.Chubb had only nine carries for 20 yards in last weeks 24-10 loss at No. 10 Florida. Michel had three carries for two yards. McKenzie, the teams leading receiver, had no touches on offense.Georgia (4-4, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) has lost four of five games. The Bulldogs offense appears to have lost all momentum just in time for the visit to Kentucky (5-3, 4-2), which has won three straight .Florida limited Georgia to 164 yards on 52 plays, so there were fewer opportunities for all. Still, coach Kirby Smart had to explain on Monday that yes, Chubb was healthy and yes, the Bulldogs biggest star can expect a bigger workload this week.Weve got to get those backs the ball more, Smart said. We know that. They know that. Its being addressed. I think everybody knows that.Chubb surprised everyone in his comeback from last years knee surgery by running for 222 yards with two touchdowns in a win over North Carolina to open the season. He also ran in top form in a win over South Carolina on Oct. 9, when he had 121 yards rushing with two touchdowns. Since then, he has been held to a combined 60 yards in losses to Vanderbilt and Florida.The easy answer is the offensive line failed to clear room for Chubb and Michel against Florida. Defenses are loading the box to stop the run, daring freshman quarterback Jacob Eason to pass to receivers in one-on-one coverages. Eason completed only 15 of 33 passes for 143 yards and one touchdown against the Gators. Max Scherzer Jersey. Its kind of frustrating, but at the same time you cant let it get to you because thats when you tend to mess up even more, said left guard Isaiah Wynn. So we are just working on fixing it and getting better.The offensive swoon could shake any quarterbacks confidence. Receiver Michael Chigbu said he hopes Eason stays strong.I just want him to keep his composure, for him to know that we are always there for him, Chigbu said. We will get this right. Nobody wants him to be frustrated. Its not his fault. Its the teams fault. Its us as a team.Smarts specialty is defense. He acknowledged he and his staff, including offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jim Chaney, have struggled to find a run-pass balance, especially when Chubb, Michel and others havent found running room.When youre not successful running it, you cant keep banging your head against the wall, Smart said. Youve got to find ways to run the ball and youve got to find ways to take shots.Smart said he wont let the offensive line take all the blame.Its our responsibility as coaches and an offensive staff and offensive line coach to get the ball to the playmakers and allow them to make plays, he said. I dont want anybody to think that were blaming the offensive line. Do we think weve got to play better there? Yeah. They have played well sometimes. We just havent done it with a level of consistency. Weve got to help them by what we call and what we do scheme-wise.---More AP college football: Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys' ' '
