James Coley just had something added to his honey do list.

In between imposing his will and getting the ball into the hands of his playmakers, his boss wants this:

It’s the new havoc rate.  And I thought havoc rate was the new havoc rate.

    Honestly, it kinda depends on what explosive is defined as?

      In other words, I don’t think this goal is unattainable or even that lofty for a first class offense like the Dawgs have. Some define explosive as +12runs and +25passes. Some define them as +20 plays regardless of run or pass. Also, the rate explosive play rate decreases out of necessity when UGA is up 20+pts in the second half. I hate putting numbers like explosive play rate and other offensive goals on a team because there are so many other variables that occur in a game that can skew the numbers and if a guy is being evaluated on whether or not he achieves the offensive goals is not fair sometimes even if they’re doing a good job.

      • According to cfbstats.com, Georgia has run a total of 323 plays on offense. Of those, 97 (30%) have been for 10+ yards and 26 (8%) have been for 20+ yards.

          And Kirby said he wants 1 in 8 offensive plays to be explosive, so the target is 12.5% (or better).

          • That math is the subsidiary of the “aggregate of moderate gains”…gross pass play production is purely the analytics involved with GPS rated down field havoc….Desired explosion will occur when the OC at UGA name is …..Johnny Nitro….

            What I also just noticed is we are 2nd in the nation in YPC. We are 15th in nation in YPA passing. I am not sure how much more we can improve, especially with our disdain for playing anything other than manball.

    Many/most of us have harped on about wanting a faster offense, and well, we should keep it up. If Fromm is the line of scrimmage guru all say he is, then he is suited to run a faster offense. The stats bear that out anyhow. The additional benefits are wearing the other team out with our depth and giving more players touches so that they are happier and get more experience. And if we happen to score faster, so what? Our defense is deep and able to rotate players better than just about any team as well. Speed it up, Dawgs.

      If you haven’t noticed, whenever Fromme starts the HUNH, the opponents have an interruption in differing ways. Late substitution, timeouts, game clock malfunction, feigned injury, etc. We should complain to the refs before games and have them call a few poor sportsmanship calls so that Fromme can continue plundering the poor sombitches.

        Yeah..Don’t know if Tennessee was the inventor of the broken clock interruption (I doubt it..it was more of a Georgia Tekish ploy) or not but it’s one that probably can’t be used more than once by any given team. (Now if the clock really does malfunction it’s going to be a fiasco because the refs will think the worse). Maybe have someone standing by in a tunnel to release a dog or deer onto the field? I know..how about LSU letting that Bengal Tiger out of it’s cage during the game this week?

          Besides, complaining to the refs won’t help. Remember, Kirby put a bug in their ear concerning the well know fact that Alabama was constantly given way too much consideration on PI calls…and how did the refs respond? They called a bullshit Offensive PI on Georgia’s first pass of the game. That’s just the way Zebra’s roll against UGA. And the play reviewers in Birmingstan will always screw the Dawgs. They won’t review plays that would help Georgia (by and large) but will happily screw our pooch every chance they get. That’s because they are ‘Bama oriented and are desperate to quell the Dawgs uprising.
          This is why I cheered louder when that asshat was rolled up during our great defensive score against Tennesse. Had he stayed afoot, I’d almost guarantee his yellow rag would have made it onto the grass and we’ have gotten a call back.
          I kind’a hope it hurt.

    I’m not an X and O wiz, so I really dont know what I’m talking about. It does seem to me that something is off in the explosiveness of the run game. What i feel like is that there are blocking issues that prevent the RB from getting cleanly out of the second level? Something that was there last year is not there so far this year. And, its not the RB’s fault.

      Agree, but it’s such a nebulous thing that you can’t quite place your finger on it and your observation is spot on. Seems like the big holes don’t appear as they did so often last year.

    I have heard black jerseys make one out of every eight Georgia fans explosive.

    This may not be a big requirement if the OC was an experienced play caller. Coley appears to still be getting use to personnel. Hopefully Coley does not get so caught up in trying to call pass plays to create the explosive plays the boss is requesting. Swift getting 12-15 touches would probably cure some of the problem

    I like to believe that Kirby/Coley are setting up UF for an ambush.
    Let them think they’ve seen 80 percent of your cards when it’s really more like 40 percent.
    CDM akin to General Custer riding off to whip some ass at Little Big Horn.
    I like to believe that.

    Is Kirby going to be comfortable playing with his offense as his best unit?

    I really wonder.

      I believe that would be a hard no, at least not for the time being. I think Kirby always plans with a defense first mentality and is too new at head coaching to fundamentally change that. That’s not necessarily a bad thing either, though I would sure love some deep middle routes added.

    Put Cook in on 3rd and long and run the draw.

    Ok, bad history. Put Mays at fullback and run the toss sweep to Zeus. Now THAT would be sweet!

    I get it, but…aiming to achieve made-up statistics* is a recipe for disaster, and fails to acknowledge that you cannot be “high” in all the statistics at once – some of them are mutually exclusive to a large, practical degree…

    (By “made-up statistic” I mean something such as the havoc rate or explosive play, which are, to a large degree, very subjective – is a “explosive” play a 20+ play, or a 10+run, or 20+ pass??? They are subjectively defined to try and quantify a phenomena, rather than some sort of wholly-objective measure.)
