If there’s one reason why I don’t think the coordinator change is going to result in a significant shift in Georgia’s offensive philosophy, it’s this:
Alabama linebacker Dylan Moses told reporters Wednesday that games against Georgia were his toughest. He cited the Bulldogs’ wear-you-down offensive style to the point Moses felt like he was “in a brawl.” His comments serve as evidence to Georgia and Alabama being on similar, if not exact, levels of pedigree — based on current state, not history. But surpassing that has been elusive for Smart after two tries.
That had to give Mr. Impose Your Will a stiffy. And why the hell not? Georgia’s offense under Smart has remade itself into, if not the most, certainly one of the most physical units in the country. After working so hard to achieve that, he’s not going to let Coley give that away. At most, I expect nothing more than some minor tweaking around the edges, but at heart, this offense will remain what we’ve seen from the past two seasons.
