So, how big a day did Isaac Nauta have against Florida?
Big enough that a Georgia tight end is among the active leaders at the position in receptions.
And here we thought the position was only meant for blocking.
Filed under Georgia Football, Stats Geek!
Didn’t Fromm hit Nauta on the same play 4 or 5 times in a row for like 88 yards? I was listening to Howard….
Maybe it just seemed like it.
Four straight passes caught on the drive to end the first half. I think Nauta has used up his quota for the rest of the season, though.
I’m no SEC-OC, but damned if I wouldn’t run that a time or two just to make them respect it. Seems like that would take at least one out of the box…..
I’d run him regularly. I’ll guarantee he will get lots more action at the next level. He’s at least as good as a Gronkowski.
And then we’ll wonder why we wasted him here.
Guy with a career of just 54 catches is at least as good as maybe the best pass catching TE in NFL history.
Fromm hit Nauta 4 times in a row, but they were different plays. It looks like the first 2 were just where Nauta in the flat was the checkdown. The third play had Nauta over the middle as either the primary or secondary read. I think Chaney called that because of how lazily they were covering Nauta to the flat and were probably going to adjust. Then he comes back on the fourth play with Nauta back in the flat (I think as the main read) again as the LB responsible for covering him was cheating back inside so as not to get beat deep.
Yes. It was a nugget that Chaney thankfully saw and exploited. Look, to all those that cry “why no TE love?” There’s only 8 conference games and every single conference foe looks at our roster and says “make those TE neutral by either loading up the LOS or spying on every play”. They what’s there, and, they know the damage that can be done. The ‘00-present has burned that bridge. The new wildcard is the wildcat or the monster RB and the 6’6”+ WR jump ball. Outside shoulder is even “old news”.
number two on that list worries me a bit. Just saying.
Chaney’s an idiot but our TE coach deserves a lot of credit!

don’t forget he can house it from 31 yds out on the ground, too! hahahaha
I have said for years… why would any high school tight end play at UGA he may never catch a pass in 4 years.
AusDawg85 good post!
