College Football: Former Georgia RB, Thomas Brown, is Moving On Up

Former running back, Thomas Brown, was hired by the University of Wisconsin last week; h will be their new running backs coach—at the youthful age of 27. Brown, whom it seems was wearing a UGA uniform only a moment ago, has made a very swift rise in the coaching ranks, and is super excited about his new gig…even calling it “Tailback U” (think he had to say that?)

No matter what emblem he wears on his lapel, he will always be a Bulldog to me.

Good luck, Coach Brown!

      Thomas was an absolute beast!

      I think his success, despite his size, made coaches less leery about signing smallish backs on offense. That said, he was a one-of-a-kind type of back in the SEC, and that fact was appreciated a lot more after he was gone.

    Always liked him. His last sentence, however, suggests enthusiasm replaced facts: ‘As a RB coach there is no better place to be’…. What? Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, Keith Marshall, JJ Green, AND Todd Gurley. I submit that even though the first two have never played a down of CFB, that this group of backs would be in the top 5 of any ever to play together, anywhere, at anytime.
    And I think we are going to need our running game. I just watched the first half of the 2013 Ga Tech game again last night and Hutson may be physically gifted, but his decision making in the passing game appears inconsistent a good portion of the time. But maybe that is because we were spoiled with Aaron for 4 years. I got used to seeing us score on our first possession. Unless Bobo has a magic trick Clemson is going to be tough to beat with Hutson at QB.
    Anyway, Thomas Brown was never in trouble and always reliable. Hope he is successful.

      Yeah, I still think UGA has a pretty good handle on being “Tailback U”. That said, I do agree that Brown will have plenty of opportunities to prove himself in Wisconsin’s run-heavy offense. I wish him well, definitely.

      As for Hutson, I wasn’t impressed with him either, but I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt—for now. Hopefully he’s more settled into his role as a starter by Game 1 of this season because, if he isn’t, it’s going to be a loooooonnnnggggg year!
