As far as the contributors to that decline go, you can point your finger in more than one direction. But here’s an area in particular worth noting. Check out this chart from Brian Fremeau that graphs points per drive by starting field position over the period of 2007-2015:
Pretty obvious correlation there. Now, consider that Georgia fell from first in Brian’s field position efficiency ratings in 2014 to 63rd last season. (Also, note which teams were 4th and 5th in 2015.)
Field position is affected by a number of factors: turnover margin, 3rd down efficiency, special teams all come to mind. None of those were exactly areas of real strength for Georgia last season. How much of that can the new staff focus on and fix may give us a real clue about Georgia’s chances to put more points on the scoreboard in 2016.
