I got ‘yer Mizzou game day post right here.

First, moar stats.

Check out the last one in each column.  You think Georgia’s running the ball today?  I think Georgia’s running the ball today.

Brooks Tilley believes Georgia needs a pass rush today.

We have to force Lock to be uncomfortable. If he gets uncomfortable he will give us the ball multiple times. I’m nervous about our pass rush but also think we’ve been very vanilla with defensive pressures thus far. I’m hoping for pressure inside from Tyler Clark and Ledbetter. Walter Grant needs to show more in this game specifically. Adam Anderson may be able to be used on 3rd and long.

I think Georgia needs to start generating pressure, not just because it would be good to make Lock uncomfortable in the pocket today, but simply as a general principle, any defense is better when the opposing quarterback can’t sit in the pocket.  Sooner or later, Georgia’s defense has to be able to do that.  Sooner would be fine by me.

But I don’t think that’s Job One for Mel Tucker in Columbia.  His game plan starts and ends with shutting down Missouri’s running game.  That makes the Tigers offense one-dimensional and easier to defend and it also means that his safeties can sit back and stay on top of the deep passing game.  If the Dawgs can succeed with that, they’ll win comfortably.

Bottom line for me is simple — do I think Missouri is a better team than South Carolina?  Mizzou’s offense is better, but I don’t think you can say the same for a defense that got torched by a winless Purdue offense.  It may take a while, but it hard to see how Georgia’s running game isn’t the big difference in the end, leading to another Georgia cover.

    We will score at will today. Purdue put up 600 yards of offense on the Mizzou D. And that was in regulation with not OT!!

        First down on the five and have to settle for a FG…That was a series very reminiscent of the goal line debacle against South Carolina a few years ago. Put Fields in…he runs for little, Throw the same pass incomplete twice and settle for three.
        Shit, we had four downs to make five yards with the great running backs we have and we do that?
        The offense isn’t functioning today, but the playcalling is a lot of the problem.

    I’ll give mizzou credit for hanging tough. They get a lot out of what is mostly 3-star talent. When they do land a really good player, like Buckner or Lock, they get a helluva lot of production out of em.

    I’m trying to figure out why we slavishly substitute on a scale never seen before in cfb. This wasn’t like scu, where the heat was a major reason for substituting. Do we really need to use 6 or 7 different WRs in a competitive game? All 4 RBs? 8 different LBs? 2 different punt returners? Seems like Pittman’s the only guy on the staff who’ll pick a starting 5 and stick with em until there’s a good reason to switch (injury, blowout, unproductive).

    The offense may have the better talent with all those 5-star players. But it seems to me the D coaching is much better, particulary when it comes to making adjustments during the game.
