“A lot of people give Coach Bobo a lot of [grief] for playcalling, but we were scoring over 30 points a game mostly, and a lot of the time we weren’t executing it,” Murray said. “If fans could only go back and know what we were looking at when we were watching film, they would see that Coach Bobo did a great job putting us in a great position to make plays and score points and we just weren’t executing when we needed to.”
Yeah, there’s a lot of happy talk in that article, but I’m encouraged to see that Murray is aware he has to improve his footwork. (Contrary to what Low suggests, it wasn’t that hard to see when Murray struggled with his mechanics last year.) That being said, it’s not just about drills. It’s about Murray being able to trust his offensive line and backs to keep pressure off him long enough to get off a properly thrown pass. That’s a level of trust that won’t be easy to build quickly.
Then again, I don’t know what you do with this Coxian comment:
“I don’t know what my problem is. I really just enjoy contact. I grew up playing defense so I kind of miss the whole hitting and stuff like that, so it’s kind of hard for me. But I definitely think it’s something I need to work on this offseason.”
Do you ever think Mark Richt gets frustrated? I think Mark Richt gets frustrated.
