Tuesday Morning 'Dawg Bites, 9/16/14.

Streeter Lecka

The week rolls on with Tuesday, the day on which college football teams are most likely to have their full pads practice for the week and on which you're most likely to spill tomato soup on your tie. So keep your head on a swivel, and enjoy today's links of import in Bulldog Nation:

Georgia's play calling still being questioned | Georgia Bulldogs blog | Columbus Ledger Enquirer
Offensive strategy Saturday remains a topic for the Bulldogs. The first question to Coach Richt on last night's call-in show was, unsurprisingly, about that first and goal play action pass. I'm not sure whether his response was more refreshing or frustrating.

UGA Blown Coverages - Analyzing the Secondary Breakdowns vs. South Carolina | The Blawg House
A nice analysis by the Blawg House's Cory Brinson of where things went wrong (and right) in the secondary against the Gamecocks. As Cory notes, a lot of the problems weren't getting into the right defense or necessarily being in the right places, but were instead related to in-play decision-making. I think this will improve with experience and repetition. There's no doubt that the secondary looks better than they did even halfway through last season.

Chubb is '50-50' for Troy game after thumb surgery | Bulldogs Beat with Seth Emerson |
Nick Chubb had surgery on his thumb Monday, but isn't being ruled out yet by Coach Richt for Saturday against Troy. But he is by me. There's almost no way we risk a talented freshman's season against 0-3 Troy. Unless Chubb suffered a small, clean break in the most opportune of locations, it's just difficult to imagine him being a significant part of the game plan.

Opponents beware: Clarke Central's Daniels is back to full strength | Online Athens
Speaking of young tailbacks, Clarke Central junior Jaqua Daniels, a major Bulldog target for 2016, is back to full strength after early season injuries.

The SEC West is as good as the SEC always tells you it is -

We were already figuring out what the opponent-adjusted statistics declare: The SEC West is ridiculously loaded this year, and the SEC East ain't half bad.

That should get you out the door and on your way. Until later . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!
