Shane Beamer candidly shoulders blame for Georgia's first-half safety
Shane Beamer took the blame for Georgia getting a five-point swing at the end of the first half between a safety, and a field goal that were each scored within the last 25 seconds.
The South Carolina coach speaking on his Sunday evening media teleconference said it was his fault for the momentum shift as Georgia took a 26-6 lead to halftime.
“I told Marcus to take a shot,” Beamer said. “It’s on me. I gave Georgia 5 points.”
It was his call to make that kind of play that ended in a sack in the end zone.
“We had made some plays in the passing game and we thought that might be an opportunity to hit a big play on them,” Beamer said. “I, not Marcus Satterfield, I told Marcus to take a shot.”
For context, that play meant Georgia’s defense has scored points in all 3 games this season.
