I forgot to mention it in my Observations post, but this really was the cherry on top of the special teams sundae against Missouri:
The punt coverage team for the Bulldogs has been both embarrassing and at times very painful.
In each of the three games this season, a Bulldog defender has received a 15-yard penalty for illegally hitting the opposing team’s punt return man.
“It’s kind of an outlier,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said. “I don’t know if I’ve ever had three of those in three games.”
No shit, Sherlock.
Hey, how come none of you guys who routinely advised Richt to spike the ball in the 2012 SECCG so he could remind the receivers not to catch any pass which wasn’t delivered into the end zone haven’t given Kirby a helpful suggestion about telling the gunners on his punt coverage team not to… well, you know?
