That's an argument coordinators can't ever win. Comes with the territory. If a play doesn't work, they're open for criticism. They're well-compensated for it.
You've got enough players to field every position in the secondary a couple of times over. I wouldn't think Georgia would play more than 8-10 anyway.
I'd say trying to contain Maty Mauk and getting the Tigers' offense off the field. He's dangerous as a dual-threat. Not so much as pure running quarterback but ad-libbing, buying time and scrambling for first downs. Think S.Carolina's Connor Shaw.
Jack, you're absolutely right. Defense is what has cost Georgia a shot at a title the last half-decade or so.
Not sure what to think of Langley being back on defense. I never expected him to leave. But I don't see him making a major impact at this juncture.
I think Georgia does what Georgia does and Arizona does what it does.
No, I don't think Pruitt will go with more man this week just because of Mauk. He runs out of the pocket a lot and that puts a DB's back to the offense when he's in man all day. Think you'll see a lot of zone and a lot of blitzing. Just my guess.
Depends on what your measurement of success is, BeachDawg. An F grade for what Richt has done in 14 years as Georgia's head coach is ridiculous. He may not have won a national title, but the Bulldogs' are winning at a greater rate than any time in their history and sending players to the NFL and graduating players, etc.
Hey, I've got to head out folks. Thanks so much for the vibrant and spirited exchange today. I'll be back at the same time next Thursday to talk about the Missouri game. Be sure to check the AJC.com website often for news update and features. They're coming constantly.
Yes, definitely. Georgia probably should have won that game.
Actually, that was an ESPN joint.
Too many questions; not enough time. Got to check out here pretty soon. Starving!
That was an interesting survey indeed.
You haven't been watching then. Georgia has four completions of more than 30 yards that I know of. Not many of the deep post variety, though, for sure.
I'd say the Mizzou game is the biggest concern at the moment. I wouldn't be surprised if the SEC East representative in the conference championship game has two losses.
Actually Gurley was a 4-star prospect and, yes, Marshall was a 5-star. You just never know.
Turman's foot has kept him on the sideline. Not looking like he'll play this season.
Dawson has been unhappy for a while over his playing time. Suppose he's just seeking new life elsewhere. He hasn't answered my calls for comment.
Not sure yet.. Lemme see the Missouri game.
Georgia's already blitzing a good bit. ILB coach Mike Ekeler earlier this week called Pruit "Dr. Kervorkian" for his many and varied blitz packages.
Mason can get you to the playoffs if Georgia's defense plays better.
Coaches are constantly after each other's players. Don't see any position changes coming anytime soon, though.
Tony, the TEs are being utilized more as blockers at the moment. Considering Georgia is averaging 300+ rushing and Gurley's abilities, I'd say that's about right. That said, they should be getting a few more touches. May help getting back a couple of wideouts to open up the middle.
Yes, Georgia will bench Mason is he's not performing at a high enough level. It's not anywhere close to being a situation like that now.
