Seth Emerson does a Q & A with three beat writers who covered Georgia’s new offensive coordinators at his previous stops, and damned if it doesn’t come off sounding like much of what we we’ve been used to lobbing at Georgia’s offensive coordinators over the years.
In Pittsburgh, they had to live with losing a stud running back and working the offense through Nathan Peterman… and the verdict was “unexciting”. Never mind the loss of James Conner or an “unspectacular” offensive line.
At Arkansas, they bitched about this: “One of the biggest frustrations I heard was if the Hogs were built to be a hardcore, power-running team, then why were there so many short-yardage run failures?” But the fans are unhappy about losing Pittman.
And, from Tennessee: “Tennessee didn’t have great records during the Chaney years, but that usually had little to do with the offense and much more to do with the defense. They put points on the board, and at times they were prolific, creative and fun to watch on that side of the ball. They just couldn’t get enough stops. Georgia fans will remember that from a couple of Vols-Dawgs games.”
There are only so many ways to run a pro-style offense, I guess. It’s good to know we’ll still have things to complain about.
