A lot of you are going to accuse me of reading way too much into this – hell, you’re probably right, too – but I can’t help but admit to being intrigued by something Josh Kendall tosses out in his early look at Georgia’s offense:
Samuel, a former starter at tailback, could line up at fullback at times in 2012 to give the Bulldogs flexibility in play-calling and formations.
If by that he means that Georgia will try to run Samuel out of two-back sets, à la Georgia’s offense from the late 90’s, I’m down with that. Those types of formations will make better use of Samuel’s ability than lining him up closer to the line of scrimmage as a fullback in a traditional I-formation set.
It’s not as if Bobo lacks familiarity with two-back sets, either.
And while I’m on a “the more things change” kind of kick here, check out something from this other piece I came across looking for more on Donnan’s offense:
… But the converted defensive back’s latest injury has Bulldog fans talking. On the radio, the streets and the Internet on Saturday, many fans questioned Edwards’ toughness, wondering why he seemed so injury-prone. Donnan dismissed those observations Sunday after seeing the tape of Edwards’ injury.
Bitching about the toughness of your best running back, a proud Georgia tradition.
