I’ll grant you there weren’t a whole lot of statistical categories in which Georgia distinguished itself last season, but here’s one: the Dawgs finished first in the conference in tackles for loss allowed. Before you dismiss that by attributing it to Aaron Murray’s mobility, consider that Georgia finished second in 2009 and in 2008.
So that’s pretty consistent excellence with different quarterbacks. Also, while Moreno made a living out of converting potential three-yard loss runs into positive yardage plays, nobody would confuse his successors with him in that department.
All of which begs the question: how much credit to you give Searels and/or Bobo for that performance? If it’s the former who deserves the kudos, we’ll have to wait and see if the coaching change has much of an impact. If you don’t think either deserves praise, how do explain the high level that’s been maintained for several seasons?
