"Offense not designed to do that" 2021 ppg - 38.4 Heupel's offense in 2021 ppg - 39.3 Counting the production returning for UGA, I expect the offense to be pretty good. I'm still not sure they will reach that juggernaut level of Heupel. 0.9ppg seems out of reach
41-17 is beating yourself? I couldn't imagine how bad a beating would be at the expense of the other team! Monken's Offense averaged 37.4 ppg compared to the Heupel's majestic offensive scheme that averaged 37.9! And not to point out Georgia was 14-1 so a bunch of those games were in cruise control the second half versus Tennessee's 7-6 record where they are trying to play catch up. I for one, am glad you're back! Haven't heard much from you since that November night! I was worried some team scooped you up as an offensive analyst!
Which pattern? 2017 - NC - Fromm played and won an SEC Title as a true Freshman. 2018 - SECCG - Fromm again. Winning most of the game and played well. 2020 - A mess! Opt outs, Mathis was awful (he couldn't play at Temple this year), Bennett played, and Charmin (see 2021 for more) 2021 - Everyone thought it would be JT would be the guy but he is soft as a roll of Charmin and now see why he wasn't the starter at the beginning of 2020. *Side note* Fields got his own shot at Bama with a far superior receiving core and didn't get the job done with one of those "Offensive Head Coaches" calling all the shots. Speaking of offensive HC's... QB gurus like Mullen, Day, or Riley have yet to beat Saban
Easy?!?! You were so hard to find in early November after you told us how bad Georgia's secondary was. But then your proclamations were about 24 points short, and your amazing QB threw as many INT's as he did TD's... and you disappeared on us. I am happy you are back sharing your knowledge!!
They are the 6th highest scoring offense in the NCAA at 40.7 ppg. Alabama is 5th at 42.7 ppg.
Yea, but they also have played 4 common opponents. That's 1/3 of the schedule and 1/2 of the SEC games they have played. It would be one thing to say if we were comparing teams from different conferences. But margin of victory and common opponents tell us about the stats compared in the article.
I am just waiting for gwhite to come in… He explained all week how past Georgia teams can’t cover the pass. One team beat their yearly offensive average while one was wayyyyyyy under. Hmmm In all honesty props to Tenn for scoring more than anyone else and for doing it with a depleted squad. Just hate when people have zero clue about football and talk smack.
I saw a Grantham run D hold Tennessee's vaunted O to 14 points. I'm all for having team pride and some confidence that your team's O can muster up some points. But some TN fans are acting like this is 2020 Bama or 2019 LSU. Those teams were undefeated and averaging 48+ for an entire season. Tennessee is 5-4 and averaging 38.2 (less than UGA btw)
You are also talking about years past. Different players, coaches, schemes, etc. I do know that Georgia leads the SEC in sacks and I’m pretty sure I read Tenn is the most sacked SEC team (I could be wrong on that stat, but thought I read it somewhere). Also Kirby has said that years past they ran a ton of Man coverage and this year they have run more zone than ever. Letting the pass rush work and not having to rely on matchups. Just saying I wouldn’t go on previous years. I’m going on this year. And Kentucky lit up Tennessee’s D, and Ole miss held their O to less than 30. One game or two might not be a great indication, but I think it’s worth consideration.
So Tennessee's D is going to hold Georgia to under their yearly average, a week after making Kentucky look like an offensive juggernaut? No doubt its gonna be a great environment, and Tennessee has the firepower to score more than than 13. Should be an intense matchup!
Best post of the day!!! I’ve always wondered how he keeps getting paid millions to do this gig!
I firmly believe its Mullen's ego. I will be the first to admit he is a good offensive play caller, just not head coach material. When he comes to a high school campus, its a show all about him. He is lining up taking pics with the teachers and showing off his shoes (I have seen this personally btw.) I think the way he never takes accountability and he cockiness rubs recruits and their families the wrong way. Just my honest opinion
Y'all know the kermit the frog meme where he is just sitting there drinking his tea??? That is me reading this article! Been saying this for years
In the 2017 NC, the biggest difference I saw between UGA and Bama was line play on both sides (which was dominated by Bama.) Georgia came in as a running team and was stopped cold, and on the other side Georgia still wasn't on the level of Bama int he trenches. Their OL was superior in the game. People can talk about Kirby's coaching in big games, but the talent level wasn't equal and it was a great gameplan by Kirby and the staff to even be that close. Just look at the defenders who gave up the 2nd and 26. I don't believe anyone in that secondary plays for this UGA team in 2021. If the offense gets healthy and can keep defenses on their heals, I feel like they can be one of those complete teams that dominate. Until then they have to play great D, special teams, and complimentary O.
Not saying Georgia will cover because I would take the points too. But your logic behind it is terribly flawed. JT Daniels never played in that game. It was walk on Stetson Bennett that came in. And while I like Stetson and he has been serviceable, nobody is confusing him for JT Daniels as a QB to lead this team.
Again… mullen never lead at one point in 8 quarters but great coaching. Having a lead doesn’t count. And if we go on talent, does saban get discredited for our recruiting everyone for well over a decade now? The answer is no! It’s part of coaching and he’s great at all facets of it.
As a Georgia fan, the narrative for mullen is always crazy to me. Florida loses 2 games to Bama and never leads in 8 quarters and Mullen is praised. Kirby has lead Bama at halftime the last 3 games and 2 of the 3 they were leading the entire games until the final seconds and he can’t get over the hump. That’s always mind blowing to me. A guy who has close to double the years HC experience doesn’t get the “over the hump” talk.
I wonder how much they pay SDS to run these as stories. Because it's false. Only way to use this is to be on location at the casino. Which makes it pointless to "bet online" if you have to drive to one of only 2 casinos in the state that offer it. Mississippi does not offer online sports betting like some states. Can't wait until we do though.
Yea as a Georgia fan I fully understand Bama is the gold standard. And will have to beat them to silence the noise. And as a fan I was obviously disappointed in the receivers being out. But that’s why almost every prediction had Clemson winning. There is still work to be done but I will take a top 5 win. No need to hit the panic button!
Numbers 1-4: Defense won’t win it for UGA, offense still sucks and let’s panic now. Number 5: Bama is only gonna get better as the season goes on So I guess Georgia doesn’t get the benefit of only getting better…
As a Dolphins fan I was fine with Pitts, Chase, Smith, or Waddle taken at 6. Any of them immediately upgrades the WR room that Tua had to throw to last year. They were awful, and I think Tua got a bad wrap. I think this season should be a huge improvement. However, I was really wanting Najee at 18!
How do you explain the slide of Trask? He had the ultimate QB whisperer as a coach... or so we are told
You never know until the season starts. We can give examples from the past all day... Like Trask being a career benchwarmer until Franks got hurt, rumors that Mac Jones wasn't even gonna start this past year, Joe Burrow not beating out Haskins at OSU, and the list goes on and on. Things can change quickly! Got it???
100%! So nice to see posts that actually logical. Football has so many variables that one person (QB, WR, RB, Coach, etc) doesn't domintate like they would in basketball. Its a puzzle, a combination of talent, chemistry, philosophy, and luck. People are saying Trevor Lawrence is the best QB prospect in a decade maybe more and he has 1 title. There are so many things that go into college football. That's what makes it great!
The top part will be beaten like a dead horse for many more weeks to come... I’m really interested in people’s thoughts on the OC rankings which I thought were fascinating... As much as I hate Mullen as a person and think he’s somewhat overrated as HC, I will say he’s a heck of an OC! But this list was impressive and hard to rank. Jimbo has a NC as an OC, HC, and is building another program in the SEC. Lane has OC NC’s and his offenses have been lights out most places.
I was just going by what Mullen said. “6 points would have beaten Bama.” Why not say 7 instead of 6? But thank you for pointing out how touchdowns and PAT’s work!
Lmao @ Mullen! He can’t even math correctly. 6 points would have tied. At least come out winning if you’re gonna make sarcastic comments!!
Haha yes! On my CPU at the end of the article, right before the comments there is always an earwax ad. It's so gross! I didn't know how the ads work, but glad somebody shares my pain!
Gator fans are so quick to throw an asterisk on the bowl game, but never mention the injuries from Georgia during that game. LeCounte, Pickens, Cleveland, McIntosh, Rochester, and Jordan Davis didn't even dress. Not counting the injuries during the game. It's part of the game I know... so congrats on winning the East and your #13 ranking!
