Weird stat of the week

In conference play, Georgia is an impressive second in the SEC in rushing defense and in average yards per rush, but a mediocre ninth in defensive rushing touchdowns.

Some of that’s due to field position issues on occasion, but some is also due to poor red zone play.

Give Kirby credit for one more thing, then:  if your defense can’t hold its own in the red zone, the obvious strategy in response is to keep the other team out of the red zone.

    From “bend don’t break” to “don’t break but if you do then bend (over)”?

    think we give up about as many passing touchdowns as running touchdowns in red zone. No idea what that means or what to do about it. Curious to hear suggestions.

    Feels a lot more like the new staff is on the right track after that game.

    I see we’ve chosen to mitigate our kickoff coverage issues by not kicking off much.

    Maybe we’re good at holding opponents to 1-3 yds rushing but suck at holding them to 0 yds. 😕
