I’m not sure that the magnitude of Georgia’s offensive performance against FAU has sunk in with us.
Georgia’s 713 total [yards] is tied for sixth in SEC history for a single game and the most in the league since Florida had 705 yards against The Citadel in 2008.
Actually, 713 is more than 705… but I digress. Anyway, note that’s a comparison to the Tebow-Harvin national champion Gator team in a game against a 1-AA defense. Nobody since then, not the ’08 Gators, not the Newton-led 2010 Auburn team that won the national title with an offensive barrage that season, not any of Petrino’s prolific Arkansas offenses, has done that. It’s not like SEC teams haven’t played a few cupcakes on occasion during that time, either.
Yet there’s Georgia, offensive warts and all. Somebody must be doing something right.
