All right. I am ecstatic guys! The masthead will be bringing us our usual updates I'm sure, but I have some things I wanted to talk about right now while its fresh in my mind.
1. Play calling. I think Richt took over play calling duties today. I saw very little play calling derpitude. I saw play calling adjustments that I don't think I've seen Bobo make in games before. I think RIcht relegated Bobo to an advisor role, and it showed trough repeated offensive success. I believe this because I saw our offense playing with a confidence they haven't had in the Bobo era.
2. Aaron Murray. Shut them up AM. Avoid the SCAR sweep. Ignore the "can't play the big game." Meme. You showed your potential here. You showed it in the SECCG and you showed flashes of it last week. But you put the whole thing together today. I don't think I've seen a better game from you than what you put on the field today. I'll quit gushing now, but I've always liked the kid's scrap. But he showed why he's the starter today.
3. Georgia's backfield is stacked. Marshall went down. Gurley played like a monster. and Green and Douglas came up big in the roles they got. Our Fullbacks are solid. Both Hall and Hicks can play. When you can run like that you can use play action effectively. And as the O Line gets better our offense is going to get better.
I think we can use Douglas (and Green) in an expanded role going forward to keep our prime backs fresh and protect them from injury. I could see 5 carries a game for each.
4. The defense... well... the defense the defense the defense. It still needs work. Discipline needs work, tackling needs work. Assignment play needs work. But they came up huge on two drives and got us the ball and momentum back. And at the end of the day, if you can come up when it matters, you can work on the other things and get better at them.
5. Lastly, I'm so glad football is back. I"m glad to have access to the internet to rejoin the dawg faithful here at DS. To all of you at the masthead, thank you for allowing us this forum so that we can talk with other fans and have a place for those of us who may be far from God's country to connect with fellow fans.
