This sounds like it must have been a real “I coulda had a V8®” moment:
Georgia did work on Georgia Tech’s offense during the bye week to get its players an early look at what to expect. One area Georgia has practiced a lot of, however, is getting off of cut blocks, a staple of Johnson’s offense.
The Bulldogs work on this during individual drills every day in practice under defensive line coach Tracy Rocker. When Rocker got to Georgia in 2014 and had his players go through cut blocks on a regular basis, nose tackle John Atkins said he wondered why.
“We never knew what it was for until Georgia Tech week,” Atkins said. “That’s what it was for the whole time.”
Have I ever mentioned how much I like Tracy Rocker?
