Malcolm Mitchell, ladies and gentlemen. He’ll be here all week.
Asked to describe a Georgia offense that has gotten its points solely off the foot of its kicker the last two games, wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell kept it light:
“Scoreless,” he said with a laugh. “That’s all I’ve got.”
And it’s an admission like this that makes me feel like I know where Malcolm’s coming from.
A caller on Richt’s radio show mentioned a lack of screen passes this season.
“It’s funny you mention that,” Richt said Monday night. “A big thing we did talk about today, not that I want to give away the whole gameplan, but we do need throw more screens. There’s no doubt about it. People that come as hard as these guys come you’ve got to do more of that whether it’s wide receiver tunnel screens or just your old-school running back showing like he’s blocking and slipping out with a guard and center out front. …We’ve got it in the system, we just haven’t called them that much.”
Funny strange, or funny ha, ha?
Remember when we were solemnly told that, coming in, Schottenheimer wasn’t going to make big changes to the offense, because what was working didn’t need fixing? Good times, then.
