Are they experienced?

It’s a tune we’ve heard before, but according to Steele, Georgia brings back the seventh-most experienced offensive line (in terms of number of returning starts) in the country and second in the SEC to Tennessee.

There’s a temptation to say that and five bucks will get you something tasty at Starbucks, but here’s hoping it’ll mean a lot more… if only for Aaron Murray’s safety.

    It’s less the experience than the fact that Georgia has actual depth at OL for the first time in forever. Keeping the big guys fresh is more important than how much they’ve played before.

    Not sure how far $5 will get you at Starbucks, senator, but here’s to Georgia having a healthy online this year.

    If they just play as well as they did last season we’ll be fine. That said, the increased depth anticipates an even better season for the O-line.

    Climpson’s o line is only number 63. Can our d line take advantage? Would probably help if our d line weren’t somewhere near last in starts I guess.

    I don’t want to pee in the Kool-Aid, but the last time we had an “all world” O-line, they were abysmal. I just hope they do the job well and stay “hungry for pancakes.”

  6. Guys…you forget that Clemson is an ACC team with that ACC attitude and they hold no power over us. CMT and Honey Bobo know this.

      Joy, Clemson was an ACC team last year too when the Tigers beat LSU in the bowl game.

        LSU had 9 first downs to Clemson’s 32. So the TIgers had more in the tank than the LSU variety. LSU didn’t score in the 4th nor did they get a first down. And their number one back Hill didn’t touch the ball in the 4th. The Hat’s decision to throw it 3 times against them during their last drive yielded nada. “LSU got the ball with 2:43 remaining and threw three straight passes. Only one was complete in the three-and-out series that took only about 1 minute off the clock, leaving Clemson with enough time for its winning drive against LSU’s exhausted defense.”
        Sabans decision to throw it on 4th and goal against A&M didn’t seem wise to me either.

    I hope this line keeps the memory of being pushed around by Carolina last year and plays with a determination to never let that happen again.

    This is the year for my Dawgs. We don’t have any top 10 teams on the schedule (we do get 4 top 20 teams in Clemson, LSU, Fla and South Carolina). We have a top 10 unit everywhere on offense from the line to QB’s, to RB’s to TE’s to WR’s. The only experienced high ranked OL we face is Fla and should we get to Bama, their OL isn’t experienced.
    Have a feeling we got something special cooked up for Clowney–double teams, cut blocks, runs right at him, etc.
    This is the year Mark Richt’s been waiting on. This is the best chance he’ll have to go 13-0.
    Heck, even Vegas favors my Dawgs in every game.

    First time they have been coached by my and your Friend.
