Run, Georgia, run!

I’m sorry, I can’t help it.  I’m totally besotted by Georgia’s advantage in the run game.

More data from DawgStats:

They good, in other words.

And here’s the list of the twenty worst college football defenses on rushing plays of 10+ yards.

They bad, in other words.  (And not in the Isaac Hayes sense of bad, either.)  On a per game basis, only Kent State gives up more of these gashes per game than does Notre Dame.

I doubt Kirby needs any guidance here, but Herschel ain’t wrong.

    New Mexico and Louisville must have some strong rushing teams this year.


  2. Run, run and run some more. The best way to frustrate those guys on the edge is to make them play the run all day long.

    You know, “the ball ain’t heavy”.

    The crazy thing is the only two teams close to them in two games are Vandy and Louisiana-Monroe, and I’m pretty sure Vandy gave up most, if not all 15 of those to Georgia. Purdue only ran for 31 yards on them at 1.72 per carry.

    Know I am speaking too early…..but thinks we have a defense to match.

    Yes I agree on the defense. We all are gonna be pleasantly surprised tomorrow night! GO DAWGS!,

    Yes..RTDB…but TTDB too…to the TEs and RB’s out of the backfield. Make ND’s defensive backs wish they’d stayed on the bus. I wanna see their linebackers with their hands on their hips in the second quarter. Quick long passing scores gets ND the ball back and lets them rest..grind it out and grind them down.

      ^^This. I want to grind them down, but not just between the tackles. Toss it left and right, jet sweeps, swing passes and wheel routes. Run them into the ground in every manner.

      On defense, tackle the damn ball.

    I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once again able to defend our hedges, to ride out the storm of Notre Dame 1st downs, and to outlive the menace of Ian Book, if necessary for 4 quarters, if necessary in the red zone. At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do. That is the resolve of BullDawg Nation-every one of them. That is the will of Kirby and the fans. The offense and the defense, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death their native soil, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength. Even though large tracts of Dooley Field at Sanford Stadium and many old and famous alums have fallen or may fall into the grip of Munsoning and all the odious apparatus of SEC officiating, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in the line of scrimmage rushing, we shall fight on the air in our passing game, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength on special teams, we shall defend our turf, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on North Campus, we shall fight on the Arches, we shall fight in the athletic fields and on the railroad tracks, we shall fight in the 600 section; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, VDFASS or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our fans beyond Athens, dressed and barking with our Bulldawg faith, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the FIghting Irish, with all its power and might, fail miserably and the liberation of college football playoff qualifying will take hold.

    I’ve never seen such a bad mismatch in such a fundamental part of the game between 2 top 10 teams. It’s so extreme it makes it hard to take at face value.
