The Georgia Bulldogs and South Carolina Gamecocks played a wild first half combining for 48 points, 13 first downs apiece, and 470 yards of total offense. The Bulldogs got a few solid shots in on Connor Shaw and held Jadeveon Clowney to only one impact play, a second quarter sack. Aaron Murray has played a statistically flawless game, going 10 of 13 for 122 yards and 2 touchdowns with no turnovers. Todd Gurley looks every bit like the best back in college football, grinding out 92 yards on 17 carries.
Murray and crew will get the ball to start the second half (unless of course the Ole Ball Coach pulls out an onside kick of his own . . .) and will look to get some defensive stops and pull away.
If there's a positive to take away from the first half defensive performance it's that the problems were not scheme problems, but rather technique issues (body positioning, tackling) that the younger guys will improve on as the year goes on. But it would be a whole lot better if they'd just go ahead and improve right now.
Buckle up folks. It's time to go at it again.
