    Did Zuniga get hurt again? Didn’t see him out there after early on. Our defense is night and day different when he isn’t out there.

    Did Toney take himself out or not in the game plan after that one play where he got 0 yards? Thought he would have a decent role in this game.

    Toney is too indecisive running the ball, he thinks he can fake 5 defenders in a row on every play.

    I wish the coaches would tell him to run to gain yards and use jukes to gain EXTRA yards.

    He only touched the ball one time today.

    Maybe he was hurt but for someone that explosive, we needed more touches, no matter what anyone says about him "juking"....

    Van Jefferson tweeted or whatever that Toney was going insane during practice, I guess it was against our DBs lol, should have been a warning

    He may have been benched for juking behind the LOS. It wouldn’t surprise me at all.

    Didn't Kyle Pitts get banged up on that play trying trying to block for Toney?

    Agree completely......doing that against good teams like UGA is a recipe for disaster.

    Zuniga played pretty much third downs only after first quarter after aggravating ankle.

    In defense of Toney, I think he was waiting for his blocker to do his job. That never happened so he got tackled. Not really his fault IMO

    Toney basically shoved Pitts down, and was tackled immediately.

    Yeah, I kept waiting to hear his name, thought it must have been when I took a bathroom break...

    My guess is Toney re injured his shoulder. He got tackled, and headed right to the sideline.

    Yeah it was either that or they really only wanted to use him once or twice because he wasn’t full ready to be back, but the thought of him being back might have caused UGA to spend a little extra time planning for him.

    Toney could have turned up for 3 yards but for some reason ran into the back of Pitts. Toney is a below average WR. Rather have others on the field. I personally dislike our WR rotation. Swain and Grimes need to be in the field more

    agreed. Grimes and Cope always need more reps than Toney and Hammond and Swain are always money. I know he’s been hurt but no way he’s top 4-5 receivers on team.
    Even next year it should look like this:
    **Pitts but will line up as TE some. Just talking Wr right now.
    Grimes
    Copeland
    Weston/Marks
    Toney
    Freshman (Fraziars, Hendo, Manuel)

    he will play a ton but won’t be KT’s top 2 options until becomes better route runner. When you consider Pitts line up wide a lot and he’s an All American I’d be surprised if Toney catches 20 balls next year.

    First play for real after a serious injury. Let the kids body and brain heal.

    Can't see him being benched for the entire game based on one bad play. Much more likely explanation is that he hasn't fully recovered from his injury.

    I think Zuninga was forced to play around 70% once Moon was injured.
