I don’t know how you write a piece about Georgia’s revamped running game without mentioning Chaney’s move to employ more shotgun, three-wide sets.
Then again, I’ve never been in the arena.

Why we didn’t run more out of 3-wide sets before last Saturday is beyond me. A lot of the damage we did with Gurley and Marshall (Keith is particular) was running from spread looks.
I blame Chaney.
I see that he has learned to call plays utilizing the talent in Georgia’s locker room vs that team from the West’s locker room.
How can we forget that night in Atlanta when we got schooled by an undersized line?
Well, it says right in the headline that it’s due to better OL play….
which is due to spreading them out so they can move around and create running lanes.
I also think we found a hidden Gem in Herrien.
He looked strong didn’t he?
If Herrien had his grades early on, schools would have been all over him. I’m really glad to see him in red and black. Kirby was recruiting him for Alabama and knew the young man had talent just needed to take care of business in class.
It took me a while to come around to running from shotgun (especially in Richt’s early days with undersized backs), but whatever works.
Talk of LSU – UF impacting UGA:
I am sure every place in st Simons and Jekyll island and all those places where all those Dawg people have condominiums for four days are going to be fine with rescheduling Georgia Florida to convenience everyone else in the conference. That makes me feel like destroying some property tonight.
FU can go pund sand….or their meat..I don’t care. They were the ones who decided to cancel the game, they need to eat the revenue loss and buy out Directional U.
Of course Georgia would be the team to have TWO games impacted by the hurricane.
