Georgia's offense hasn't put the ball in the end zone, but has shown some signs of life as the 'Dawgs trail 10-3 at the intermission. Your inexplicable stat of the half: Georgia held the ball for 18:02 of the first half and trails in total yardage 185 to 127. Okay, maybe inexplicable isn't the right word. "Frustrating" would also make sense. "Numbing" would work too.
Your other statistic that sadly says a lot? Fullback Christian Payne is your Bulldog receiving leader with 1 catch for 20 yards. So yeah.
A few random thoughts:
- Malkom Parrish went up as high as a Malkom Parrish will go on that interception.
- I don't think we would have let the clock run out before the half with :32 left in this kind of a game with Hutson Mason under center. I'm serious, dammit.
- The goal line series. It always makes more sense to me to line up under center on the goal line then go outside or over the top rather than lining up in the shotgun and trying to ram it in. But given how our offensive line has blocked in short yardage this season I don't think we're fooling anyone into thinking we're going to line up and ram it down Auburn's throat.
- Jeremy Johnson is 7 of 11 for . . .24 yards. That's hard to do.
- I have no problem with us using the Wild Dog, Wild Hog, or Wild Pog if it scores points. I have no shame at this point, and care not for style points.
- So there's this.
Still wondering why we don't play Keith more, I love Sony & nothing against B-Doug, but Keith is a playmaker man.— Jack Loonam (@j_loonam) November 14, 2015
I'm glad it's not just me. Let's get back to the second half. No matter how things turn out, we're all still 'Dawgs, and we have books in our homes that don't require crayons. So we've got that going for us.
