Well, it’s the big news about the Georgia program this week – Mike Bobo named offensive coordinator and Mark Richt giving up the playcalling reins next year.
No one has any idea about how this will work out, of course. But I was impressed with the playcalling on the game winning drive against Tech.
Speaking of which, Josh Kendall in The Macon Telegraph has an interesting note in an article appearing today:
… Bobo was given the team’s playcalling duties before the Nov. 25 Georgia Tech game, a 15-12 Bulldogs win. Stafford said he was impressed with that game plan, particularly with Bobo’s work on the final drive. Stafford said a 7-yard pass play to Mohamed Massaquoi to convert a crucial third down came on a play Bobo had just drawn up that week.
“He’s pretty gutsy to have confidence in a play that we’d run for one week on third-and-the-game,” he said. “He trusts the players to execute, and it’s a good feeling.”
Nice start. Just remember, as they say in the securities business, past performance is not a guarantee of future success…
