It was a magical season.

Mark Richt, on Marshall Morgan’s freshman campaign:

“Of all the guys that have hit the upright on multiple times,” Richt said, “he has a high percentage of going through.”

So there’s that.  Not sure you want to make bank on a repeat performance, though.

    Okay. And . . . ?

    Somebody needs to tell that young man there’s no bonus point for hitting the uprights!

    I say 5 points if you call bank!

    Considering the gauntlet we have to run through during the first month of the season, I hope these kids have gotten the jitters out and are ready to step out this season and do better.

    They performed pretty well given that they were both true freshmen, but improvement has to be made. Barber seemed to get it towards the end, as noted, but Morgan needs to get things down pat (pun intended). He has a huge leg, but no control from what I saw last year. Hopefully that has changed. Without his big leg we wouldn’t have gone into the half against UTk tied and who knows how that game would have ended up especially with the offensive meltdown in the 2nd quarter.

    For a while at the beginning of the season Morgan had a higher percentage of success from 50+ than on Xtra points. I am sure the point after issue will get fixed but it does make you appreciate the success UGA had in the kicking game for so long before the past 1 1/2 years. We had been very comfortable in that area for a long, long time; hope we return to that next season.

    Either Morgan or CMR should call Blair Walsh and ask if he has a couch Morgan could sleep on all summer. Then have Morgan tag along to practice with Blair every day.

    My youngest son was a kicker for his HS team. Has his own spot in the record book for that school. He always insisted ” it’s just more than the kicker…. it’s the snapper and the holder on the play as well.” NOT trying to make excuses for the plethora of bank shots ……… just a thought.

    So if next season they hit the upright & clank out will we have a new lexicon entry of progression to the mean?

    “…make bank…” I see what you did there.
