Quayvon Hicks is all in with Mike Bobo’s latest wrinkle.

I’d say I’m in the “wait ’til I see it” camp, but there’s no denying that Bobo has been consistent about adding new things to Georgia’s offense over the past few seasons, so let’s see what the H-back can bring.

When Hicks talks about his role, he sounds a bit like Bobo, analyzing the direction of the game and its offenses.

“Everybody is straying away from that power-I, I-formation scheme,” Hicks said. “When it works in the SEC, you’ve gotta have the foundation of running the ball, especially in our backfield. But I would say just the traditional football of running it, pounding it, (the trend) is straying away from that.

“So it would speed up our game (to use Hicks at H-back). And to basically play how they play in the NFL, out West, that football where you may be in that I-formation, maybe you’ll be in that spread offense. But you’re constantly going, and you’re going, you’ve gotta wear down the defense. So I think what Bobo is doing is he’s opening up a lot of doors, not only for me but for our players.”

Between what Pruitt’s up to bringing the secondary back to competence and Bobo’s tinkering, the opener sure looks ever more intriguing.

    Watching some NFL preseason last night, I noticed the I-formation represented quite often (maybe b/c it’s preseason and who cares). But the fullback hardly ever stayed in one spot. All I could think about was Bobo with a notepad. Seriously the Ravens’ fullback (H-Back) must have lined up in 4 different spots- all somewhat resembling the i.

  2. Couple of admin questions. Am I the only one that can’t get into The Telegraph without signing up and presumably paying a fee?

    Also, Seth and Gentry going to podcast. I hope I can just listen to it through my browser instead of having to access it through iTunes. That application is gawd awful….

    • On your first question, try deleting your cookies.

      • I control my cookies, delete them daily, and it doesn’t work for me. It IS very annoying and disruptive. I notice the Ledger-Enquirer links work fine. You might try using those as all the stuff is duplicated there.

    • My itunes works fine, or are you just one of those anti apple folks?

        The only thing apple is good for is juice… 🙂 Yep, I am one of them – never owned an apple product and never will.

      Itunes ain’t bad. It can get glitchy if you’re running it on Windows OS. I’ve had Apple machines from the original Mac to a Quadra. I still have the Mac. Needs a new power supply. I finally switched to Windows but loved the Macs. Last windows machine was an HP. Last two towers we’ve custom built. Current phone is the Note III and I love it.

    • Eh, I’m a bit of a mutt when it comes to technology…love my Macbook pro, and windows phone. Don’t like the way Apple tries to lock you into their ecosystem with iTunes and I don’t think iTunes is easy to use. Love me some Spotify tho, and my kids love them some iPad.

        Share your feeling about Apple and just joined Spotify this past week when I got set up on Sonos. Heck of a value for $10 a month.

  3. I believe Hicks is going to surprise a lot of people. He’s going to help us, in both the passing and running game. He (H position) also gives us a lot of flexibility and complexity, more of the unexpected, more to prepare for.

    It’s not much, but he looks really good in the film clips we’ve seen. And I was already impressed with his pass-catching ability from the Spring.
