One of the little stories many of us Dawg fans like to tell ourselves for consolation after a painful loss is that the winning team spent extra time and effort gameplanning for Georgia. We heard plenty of that after the South Carolina result – Spurrier was installing his gameplan against Georgia during the summer, according to some – and that same meme is starting to crop up on Dawg message boards after the Tennessee fiasco.
Well, after you read this paragraph from Ching’s article in the Ledger-Enquirer today, ask yourself why any coach has to plan anything special for Georgia:
Although Georgia’s coaches said the Volunteers didn’t do anything they hadn’t previously seen on film, the Bulldogs were continuously either out of position or unable to make the tackle when they were. Even the reverse pass 56-yard touchdown from Lucas Taylor to tailback LaMarcus Coker a play where no Bulldog was within 20 yards of the wide-open Coker was old. The Vols used the same play and same two players for a 48-yard score last season against Florida.
