Gurley ranked number 3 player in the nation by SOE

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown had this to say in his breakdown of Gurley:
3. Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia. The NFL continues to shy away from drafting running backs early, but Gurley's the type of player who can be an exception. After rushing for 1,385 yards as a true freshman, injuries limited him to 10 games last year, yet he still ran for 989 yards (six per carry) and 10 touchdowns and caught 37 passes for 441 yards and six touchdowns. He's one of the most complete running backs in recent history, a 232-pounder who is frightening to tackle because of his size and physicality but can also break away from defenders in the open field.
Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston were two and one, respectively.

UGA placed Ramik Wilson (#39) and Leonard Floyd (#46) on the list, as well.

As far as players we'll face, Clemson's Vic Beasley (#6) and Garrett Grady (#71), South Carolina's Mike Davis (#34) and AJ Cann (#55), Tennessee's AJ Johnson (#84), Florida's Dante Fowler (#31) and Vernon Hargreaves (#10), and Auburn's Sammie Coates (#65), Reese Dismukes (#49), and Nick Marshall (#15) made the list.

Has Mark Richt dropped-off in away games as the Visiting Coach in the last 10 games where the opponent was in fact a ranked team in either the AP or Coaches' for the season ? Well has he ?

I heard there were more UGA players but Nick Marshall stole the rest of the list. And then smoked it.
