How bad an October was it for Georgia’s offense? Welp,
Yeah, I’d say that’s pretty brutal.
In fact, in the case of the last of those three listed, I’d say it’s off the charts. Georgia is the only team in the country that didn’t score a touchdown in the red zone during the entire month. For comparison sake, here’s the number of red zone TDs Georgia scored in its previous seven Octobers:
- 2014: 10
- 2013: 9
- 2012: 4
- 2011: 8
- 2010: 17
- 2009: 6
- 2008: 8
You read that correctly. Even in 2013, in an October in which Aaron Murray wound up with no one to give the ball to on offense, Georgia somehow managed to find the goal line from the red zone nine times.
By the way, you should also consider that in some of those years, like 2012, Georgia only played three October games. This season, there were four.
This offense is dysfunctional in a way we’ve never seen before under Richt. Sure, personnel has changed to some extent, but not that much. You can probably guess which way my finger points.
