Statmeister Brian Fremeau’s advice to Georgia about what needs to be addressed in 2012 will come as a surprise to no one who followed the Dawgs last season:
The focal point for next season has to be about finishing games and drives. On methodical drives of ten or more plays, Georgia scored a pathetic 1.5 points per possession (119th nationally and 2.3 points fewer than the national average). Late drives stalled in the bowl game loss to Michigan State due to conservative play calling and execution breakdowns. [Emphasis added.]
That’s a lot of wasted drives. Some of that’s on Bobo, some on the line play and some is on Blair Walsh.
It’s going to be a real challenge to improve that, given the changeover coming on the offensive line. But there’s little doubt it’s one of the big keys for Georgia this season.
