Interesting quote from Mike Bobo about the gameplan for Georgia Tech:
… His plan entering Saturday’s game at Georgia Tech was for the Bulldogs to run the hurry-up offense for much of the afternoon before the Yellow Jackets jumped out to an early 20-0 lead.
“We tried to go fast really all night tonight. We just early in the game, we had some guys and we missed them and couldn’t really get anything going,” Bobo said, later adding, “They don’t play a lot of people on defense, so I thought if we could wear them down with the screens and with the hurry-up, no-huddle, we’d be able to run the ball late. And we just got so far behind, we kind of had to stay in the pass mode and some one-back runs out of the gun.”
I guess I should take back my criticism that Bobo didn’t build on the Kentucky game. And maybe it’s not such a surprise that he had to pull the reins in early last Saturday until Mason settled down a bit and the o-line got more in sync.
But it sounds pretty clear that he’ll be tweaking the offense to match his quarterback’s skill set. It should make for something to watch in the bowl game.
