Seth Emerson’s got a good piece about Mike Bobo’s evolution as a play caller here. Here’s the bit that really floored me:
Two years ago Bobo implemented his version of the no-huddle, in an effort to get more plays. It worked, as the team ran 1,016 plays, the second-most in program history. The most came in 2003, Richt’s third season in Athens, when he was still running the version of the no-huddle he had used as the offensive coordinator at Florida State.
Running the most plays ever behind a leaky offensive line and as no-name a group of running backs as Georgia’s ever had? Dan Inman, all is forgiven, buddy. And David Greene – you bad, man.
