David Ching pretty much nails where I’m at right now with what feels like Georgia’s biggest concern this week.
While it might seem odd to criticize an offensive line that helped Georgia generate 545 yards — on the road in one of the louder stadiums the Bulldogs will visit this season, no less — it is clear that offensive line coach Will Friend has not settled on a lineup that he loves after Saturday’s 38-35 loss to Clemson.
With Jadeveon Clowney and South Carolina’s fearsome defensive front on deck Saturday, that is not a particularly encouraging sign for the Bulldogs.
I do think there are some things Bobo can take away from North Carolina’s gameplan to reduce Clowney’s impact. But the Heels also had a left tackle in James Hurst who got some preseason All-American attention. Friend doesn’t appear to have that option. Even scarier may be the prospect of Clowney lining up over center.
If necessity is the mother of invention, here’s hoping that Bobo gets truly inspired this Saturday.
