ATHENS, Ga. - Georgia freshman tailbacks Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall each rushed for more than 100 yards in last Saturday's 56-20 win over Florida Atlantic, but that isn't the first thing they've done in tandem.

The touted prospects from North Carolina committed to the Bulldogs last winter in similar fashion. Gurley and Marshall made separate calls to Bulldogs running backs coach Bryan McClendon, informed him they appreciated his interest but that there were better options elsewhere, and then admitted they were just joking.

"They pulled the same trick on me, and I fell for it twice," a smiling McClendon said.
