Coach, we’ve got your back here at GTP. By all means, let’s talk about this week’s game.
First topic of note – contrary to the talk before last Saturday’s game, it now seems that there’s a feeling that playing Georgia Southern was helpful preparation for the genius.
“Seeing it live in full speed in a game right before playing Tech, it definitely helps us,” Georgia cornerback Sanders Commings said. “Our scout team offense can only simulate it so well. They do a great job, but seeing it live from an offense where that’s what they do every week, it will definitely benefit us.”
You could see it as the game progressed and the defense grew accustomed to the speed of GSU’s offense. As Ching noted, the defense completely dominated the third quarter: “The Bulldogs limited the Eagles to 31 rushing yards on 12 carries in the third quarter, resulting in three punts and a lost fumble by fullback Dominique Swope.”
I’m sure Johnson will have a few playcalling tricks up his sleeve, but needing a shorter period to adjust to the timing of the execution of Tech’s offense can only help the Dawg defense this week.
