Hershel Walker says "Gurshall" is "not a good name" for Georgia's Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.

Georgia tailbacks Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall's ongoing campaign to stop being called by the "Gurshall" nickname got a huge boost over the weekend from possibly the greatest name in University of Georgia football...nay, in University of Georgia athletics history. Hershel Walker, the legendary UGA running back whose name inspired "Gurshall" came out in support of the duo's attempt to squash the shared nickname they so intensely despise out of existence.

“I thought it was very cute, but I thought it was unjust,” Walker said. “Those guys are so good on their own. People always want to compare running backs coming to Georgia, running backs to Herschel Walker and I said, `I think that’s totally unfair’ because those guys have proven they can play and they have the right to be their own name and Gurshall is not a good name. I can’t even spell Gurshall. So that’s not a good thing at all.”

Hershel said don't call them "Gurshall," so don't call them "Gurshall." Simple as that.
