Mike Bobo, crayon and all, wins the 247Sports Offensive Coordinator of the Year Award for the 2013 season. Aaron Murray puts the season in perspective:
“Our stats this year are just the same if not better than last season,” said senior quarterback Aaron Murray, lost for the season to an ACL tear in the first half of game No. 11. “Last year was unbelievable, and you look at the amount of injuries we’ve had this year, and we’ve still been to put up those types of numbers. I don’t think fans really realize the type of offense we had this year. It’s been pretty unbelievable the things we’ve been able to do really with only half the amount of guys we usually have.”
I think this best sums up the 2013 offense:
With Bobo having to check to see who was in the game and figure out plays that substitutes would be able to run, Georgia managed to beat Tennessee in overtime. It came after a game-tying drive in the final minutes where, other than Murray, the five players who touched the ball included three true freshmen, a former walk-on receiver and a senior receiver in Rantavious Wooten – who caught a touchdown yet hadn’t caught more than 15 passes in any season before this one.
Just like they drew it up in practice. It’s amazing to hear people bitch about how close that game was, but Bobo’s right, “At the end of the day, it’s about winning and losing,” Bobo said. “You’ve got to score one more point than the other team.”
