Slow and steady wins the race.

One other way an offensive coordinator protects a young quarterback who’s shown his ability to manage the pre-snap read is you don’t rush him.  That’s one reason why Georgia is 122nd in offensive pace of play.

      Yep. Would bet we burn more clock before the snap in the 4th quarter then any team in the country.

        Yes, our starters have played in only one 4th quarter where the offense was trying to score. Burning clock has been about 20% of our game time this season.

    I think that being 122nd in this stat means we are actually 6th in the nation in having an offense that plays its own game. It’s obvious when we get in hurry up but they don’t use the hurry up unless it makes sense to. We are very good at time of possession, yards per play, efficiency, and red zone scoring and we do all that without letting the opposing defense dictate the series. I know we have some issues but I see this is being a successful offense that doesn’t get forced out of their comfort zone.

    I like how we hurry to the line to freeze defensive substitutions, but I wish we would go ahead and snap it a couple of times to catch the defense off guard.

    The longer our O is on the field the more our D is resting – right?

    I like this especially as the team doesn’t have a problem with delay of game calls.

    All this hurry up and snap it to get the opposing defense tired is bologna, because in turn that’s less time that your defense gets to rest. Just keeping those big guys on the other side of the line on their feet for long periods of time will wear em down. One of my favorite drives of the last few years was in 2013 when Gurley and Douglas just ran over the will of the gayturds to burn up the last 8 something minutes of the game only up by 3 to seal the win.
