It’s game week, finally, part one

I don’t doubt there are questions about this 2018 Georgia football team awaiting answers — you’d have to be the blindest of partisans not to wonder how they go about making up for Roquan Smith’s departure, for example — but if one of the four questions Kirby Smart has yet to answer is offensive identity, the Dawgs are in bigger trouble than I thought.

  1. Offensive identity should be the least of our worries. We have a war daddy offensive line that’s big, deep and talented. We have a running back group that makes everyone outside Tuscaloosa blush and a group of receivers/tight ends that make it impossible for teams to stack the box. Throw in the two QBs who are going to get the ball to all of these guys. I will be disappointed if we don’t average 40+ per game.

      Having watched both our RBs, and Bama’s, I will take our group. Admittedly biased, but we have better talent, and more diverse running styles. Calling it now, Holyfield will go off this year. Swift may put up more total yards, but Holyfield will mor key yards for us on the ground.

      Fromm will also be operating with more of the playbook this year than he did last year as a freshman. I’m with you, I think the offense will actually take pressure off a defense that has some questions to answer, albeit with a lot of talent to do so.

    Who in the world is Mike Griffith and what on earth is he talking about? Does anyone really think Kirby cares about “keeping the locker room in equilibrium”? I don’t even know what that means.

      He writes like a sport talk radio guy talks. And usually with about the same level of substance. I guess he is paid to drive clicks, and seo-friendly headlines, manufactured controversy and hyperbole are ways to do that, but not too my liking.

      Mike Griffith is a pot-stirrer, and not a very good one, at that. Really makes you miss Seth Emerson.

    Those types of columns are silly to me. It’s a question for him (and maybe us fans) because he doesn’t specifically know.

    Something tells me Chaney, Coley, and Kirby have a pretty good idea of what they want to do at this point.

    Mike Griffith is a major step down from Seth Emerson. On the radio this morning, he made excuses for Urban Meyer, said the WLOCP should be home and home, and claimed the Tech game was useless for UGA to play. His coverage is fanboyish while being ignorant of our traditions. I might have to subscribe to the Athletic after all.

    • Yeah, I’m over this guy. He’s only been around for a month or so, but his articles have already made me say WTF a few times.

      You won’t regret a subscription to the Athletic – the in-depth stuff is fantastic. Great article last night on the lives of NCAA refs behind-the-scenes. Another great one a few weeks ago on how Ron Courson gets our players back from ACL injuries so quickly. The Senator has linked to a few other excellent ones too.

    • As I mentioned above, The Athletic is worth a try.

  5. It doesn’t matter if Mike Griffith doesn’t know the identity. It only matters that Kirby and Chaney and the team know. They do.

    I bet our offensive identity will be run the ball til they stop it and then beat them through the air.
