One comment that’s emerging pretty consistently from Georgia’s new offensive coaches is the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mantra. Here’s Rob Sale on that:
Sale admits that his job is to basically not mess up what took place this past season, when Chubb rushed for 1,547 yards and 7.1 yards per carry.
“The philosophy is play-action and that everything we do has to tie in,” Sale said. “We have to believe in the same principles of covering up the down linemen, knocking them off the ball and let great running backs be great running backs. It’s a pretty simple concept.”
It also has the benefit of having worked well over the past few seasons.
I know this started with Richt and his shopping list of what he wanted from Bobo’s successor. But it’s good that everyone appears to be on the same page with the boss’ wants. It’s one thing to keep it simple. It’s another to get an almost entirely new offensive staff rowing in the same direction from the start. The task of finding a new quarterback to run the show is a big enough chore. There’s no need to complicate that with a big change in scheme.
