“After the pass is completed, it’s just Gurley and Riggs, which is almost always bad news for a safety.”

Nice look at a couple of plays that demonstrate Todd Gurley’s worth to the Georgia offense.

I just wish Bobo had dialed up that play action pass to the tight end in the Clemson game instead of running Gurley and Hicks into a ten-man front when the Dawgs had a first-and-goal on the five and didn’t score.  Sigh.

    Yeppppop. I couldn’t believe we didn’t run that play. I was so mad about it that when we ran it in the South Carolina game I’m 99% sure I yelled, “Where was that against Clemson?!” instead of cheering. So frustrating.

    Maybe Clemson was not selling out as much against the Run?

    Excellent explanation in this article. And well executed plays always look good in hindsight. The key is to have the play called at the right time against the right look the defense is showing you, recognizing it, and then executing. Some plays that do not work were actually good calls but due to poor execution or a player on the other team making a good playthe called play does not work. Some of our fans do not recognize that and expect every play to be succesful.

    That play to Gurley is the same play we ran to Lumpkin on our first play vs. Muschamp’s D at LSU in the 2003 SECCG. It was wide open then and wide open now. Obviously, Bobo and Richt found a hole in that look that Muschamp is giving us.

    Good Lord, if Kregg catches that ball…
