Coley playing chess.

Nice breakdown by Hutson Mason of a completion last Saturday.

It’s good to see how Georgia made excellent use of the off week to fine tune stuff like this.

    Good Analysis by Hutson…he is trying hard to get into the game as an analyst…

    Ok let’s ask the obvious- why was Coley not able to scheme open his receivers against SC?


    • I’m wondering if he just thought that we would be able to ram it down their throats the whole time and didn’t have a solid plan B, or a plan C once Cager went down.


    • Harold Miller

      Some of this could be learning on the job. Just sayin’.


    • Go Dawgs!

      It wasn’t a good gameplan, Jake Fromm had probably his best day as a college quarterback, and his receiving corps lost its best option to injury and the rest of the group wasn’t 100 percent in command of the offense and where to be yet which made Jake look even worse. It was a disaster, that’s all there is to it. I don’t think the coaching staff anticipated having as much difficulty running the ball as they had which wasn’t helped by injury related shuffling on the O-Line. I don’t think the coaching staff realized they’d have to do as much to scheme the receivers open, but the young bucks aren’t ready yet to just do it themselves.


  3. That was good analysis right there. Excellent call followed by excellent read and an excellent throw with great protection.

    Call + execution = results

    Finally got to watch the replay last night, and it was as apparent as it was in the stadium that the routes had been designed to get guys open. Much, much better job and what people definitely wanted to see!

      I was in the upper deck and from my vantage point I saw Pickens open deep, too. The play design, play action fake and route running got two guys open deep!


      • KornDawg

        On the Cager TD late? I was in the upper deck, and I swear there was an audible reaction when the play started. I saw Pickens streaking down the middle and that’s what I thought everyone saw, because he had his guy beat, too. Then I saw Cager with no one within ten yards….

    I know some open receivers have been missed in prior games but why in the hell were we not running some of these route concepts all year? Screw putting it on film, if it’s about execution and manball, doesn’t this make the team more dangerous and harder to defend with these plays being called?


  6. HahiraDawg

    Ya’ll, its is just plain ignorant to think that we were’t running some of these route concepts all year”. The reason Fromm saw thre presnap is because this is practiced time and again. This is not new. DRob still has to stem his route and time with Cager. There are a ton of ways this could have broken down despite the call and assuming the line still provides time.

    The fact is it worked Saturday and doesn’t always, especially if one coverage is shown pre-snap and subsequently shifted to a different. For ex. a zone where Corner could have taken inside, Nickel could have dropped to deep third and the safety could have split to outside deep third and DRob woul have been shut down. You hope something else opens up. You hope 11 has time. You hope he reads and can get it there.

    The biggest difference to me was USCeast had elite inside rushers that beat man-to-man blocking. UF relies on outside rushers and numbers which compromises safeties in coverage.
