If you want to read anonymous coaches’ comments about some of Monday’s matchups, here you go.

“There is no easy answer in this game. There is no secret stat. These are the two best teams in college football lining up and playing big-boy ball. As one offensive line coach told me, this “should be a blood bath of a game”.”
If this last paragraph doesn’t get your blood pumping…
ESPN has an article up with Kiffin’s take. Not surprisingly, he has Bama winning, as we’re the match-up Saban and co wanted. The teams that beat Bama are spread teams with dangerous QBs (like Mayfield). Our run-first offense plays into their defense’s strength.
“Bloodbath” huh? Sounds about right.
you can say that again.
Well done Semp..carry on.
Yep. Old man, smash mouth football. Roll it out there and see who wants it more.
The game is supposed to be one of wills more than wits. My kinda match up. The strong will survive and the weak will perish.
I like my guys in this one. I really do.
The Bama SECC ended up being closer to the OU game than old man, smash mouth football. Games like this regularly turn out to be the opposite of expectations. I expect a lot of offense with some defense sprinkled around.
I was thinking the same thing initially. I see them maybe trading punches early but everything settling down quicker than the OU game. It’ll be fun to watch for sure.
Gurley got his yards.
I find Calvin Ridley a lot less intimidating with Jalen Hurts trying to get him the ball, personally.
Also, I wish these kinds of analyses included the kicking game. Obviously that was a major factor last Monday.
I was thinking the same thing. Hot Rod’s kick offs and our punting have made a big difference this year. I don’t know how we compare with bama.
So in other words, Bama is basically a Richt coached team, just with more talent?
I don’t think anyone is confusing Daboll with Bill Walsh, Lane Kiffin or Mike Bobo. That offense has as much star power as UGA and is feared less, it seems. So, Richt recruited team, yeah. Richt coached team? Hell no.
At this point I’m ready to ditch the analysis of team strengths and weaknesses. I checked the dictionary. Next to the word ‘destiny’ they had a team picture of the ’17-’18 Dawgs.
I fear the difference in this game is going to be the receivers…
Cosmic, you fear everything…
I’m real comfortable going ahead with the Wims/Godwin/TE combo.
Just a random observation: all season long Barret Sallee has picked UGA to win it all, so if we do win it all, he going to look like a freakin’ Genius. Even if we don’t win, he looks like a genius to me because he had reasons for his picks, and declined to follow the herd that thought we were a couple of years away.
Yes, he has been 100% consistent.
He’s UGA’s version of Corky Simpson.
Jalen Hurts will look like Colt Brennan in the 2008 Sugar Bowl.
Who would’ve thought Dawgs could make the heisman winning qb look like colt Brennan for the better part of 2 quarters. I don’t think bama has faced a defense with either the power or team speed of UGA. That said, the dawgs can’t afford not to bring their “A” gameplan from the start because there will be no 17 point comeback against bama.
No kidding. The corrections were incredible but they also served to illuminate a pretty poor defensive game plan at the start.
So who has been the most highly over rated QB Georgia has faced this year? I’m spitting that honor between Notre Dame’s and Auburn’s. The most under rated would be Vandy’s. The best QB I’ve seen is Baker M…BTW..the kid at UCF looked great against Auburn in the second half of the Peach.
Drew Lock was a close second to Mayfield, IMO. I don’t get why he’s not being talked about more as a 2018 NFL prospect—seems to have all the tools.
He’s got a Stafford class rifle.
Lock’s numbers actually compare or were better than Mayfield’s, game was very similar in the way that we traded blows till the second half. We went to the pass heavy phases which slowed us down, but both had their success in the first half.
How creative is Bama’s offense? Although they put up points (against far inferior opposition), they remind me of what we looked like under Shittyheimer but with a scrambling QB. Hopefully Hurts sticks to form and gifts us a mishandled RPO fumble or two as well a desperation heave pic. I totally see that in him, but not from our freshman QB. I like our offense more than I do theirs in regards to getting the playmakers involved and how we do it versus their obvious dependability on getting Ridley the ball. I’m not to worried about Hurts running, how many running QB’s have we faced already? Neither Clampson or Bama played a good schedule and were meant for each other. I’ll take the fire/juice/momentum/experience we just got with the Rose Bowl win over the Clampson laying on their stomach win any day. That win for Bama doesn’t show how great they are imo because Clampson wasn’t a scary good team. I doubt Saban will allow them to feel as if they will just have another cakewalk over us, we’re not Clampson and will not lay on our stomachs. Anyway, I’ve ranted enough. Dawgs have more than earned our place in this game throughout the entire season, Bama has not despite beating Dabum, we aren’t gonna let this be taken from us. GO DAWGS!!!!!
Total coin flip game. Should be bonkers.
27 – 24
Hot Rod Goggles for the win.

We’re going to try to make Hurts a pocket passer. His QBR has stunk the last two games. If we can do that he’ll turn it over once or twice.
