A few things I noticed after watching the broadcast replay yesterday:
- I take back what I said about no embarrassing moments for Theus. He got manhandled on the play that turned into the Marshall fumble. This week’s match up with Devin Taylor? Yikes.
- That Aaron Murray fourth-quarter slant pass that went through Wooten’s hands was an even more impressive throw than I thought.
- As a decision-maker, Murray played a near flawless game. There were very few throws where he didn’t seem to be on the same page as his targets.
- Biggest mistake Grantham made in his second half adjustments was not going more balls out on the pass rush. Bray had trouble handling pressure all game.
- I grow more impressed by the week with the job Will Friend is doing.
- I can say the same thing about Merritt Hall’s blocking.
- There’s something amusing about hearing Danielson’s derision of the offenses in the Baylor-West Virginia score-a-thon while he’s calling a game that results in 95 points and over 1,000 yards of offense.
- Speaking of Danielson, I’ll have to go back and watch again, but if he was right about the Vol formations tipping running plays, did Grantham pick up on that, too? (If not, he should have.)
- Outside of the first throw of the game, Georgia didn’t test the Vol secondary with deep passes. I’m not sure why. As the Bennett TD showed, it’s not like UT has a bunch of blazers back there.
- If Georgia’s special teams are merely competent, this game isn’t close. Why do I have to keep saying that?
- Yeah, there were plenty of missed assignments on defense. But, my Gawd, Alec Ogletree is impressive.
