If you’d have told me before the season began that Georgia’s starting quarterback would go 4-7 for 101 yards and throw an interception in the Florida game, it wouldn’t have given me a lot of hope for the outcome. As it turned out, of course, it was merely the byproduct of a dominant running attack and defense that allowed the Dawgs to control the game without any need to put a lot on Jake Fromm’s shoulder, other than his general management skills (which have been superb so far for a true freshman).
That, in turn, is due in large part to the improvement on the offensive line. Georgia hasn’t given up a lot of sacks, but a lot of that can be attributed to its reliance on the running game. What is more relevant is the drop in tackles for loss allowed from last season’s national ranking of 90th to this season’s 32nd. That has fueled a similar rise in yards per carry from 2016’s 54th to 2017’s 8th.
Sam Pittman’s done a whale of a job, obviously, but if you want to dig a little deeper into what’s gone on, Seth Emerson has the details here.
