Paul Johnson had some time on his hands, so he watched the Georgia-South Carolina game. And he’s got some advice for Steve Spurrier.
Gaudin asked about South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier’s fourth-quarter decision to play out of the shotgun on fourth and goal, inches from the Georgia goal line, rather than have quarterback Connor Shaw go under center. On the play, Shaw pitched to running back Mike Davis, who was tackled shy of the goal line by Georgia linebacker Amarlo Herrera, a game-turning play in the fourth-quarter.
Johnson first explained that that’s how South Carolina runs its offense.
“I wouldn’t do that, but Coach Spurrier’s won a lot of games,” he said.
Good of him to notice.
