One more thing from that AL.com article I linked to in my previous post:
Georgia’s offense snaps the ball once every 30.3 seconds, which is 125th in the country. The Bulldogs also run the ball 56.5 percent of the time.
I think this is a faulty strategy for a team that ranks No. 3 in the 247Sports Talent Composite.
Georgia should be running as many plays as possible to take advantage of its talent and limit variance. Going that slow is a strategy for underdogs – 14 seeds in the NCAA Tournament or triple-option teams with talent disadvantages like Army.
Georgia is ninth in time of possession and tends to play with a lead. With two bye weeks for each team, the Bulldogs defense is as rested as any team in the country.
Not only that, but in general, every time we’ve seen Georgia go up-tempo on offense this season, it’s gotten good results. When you’ve got the better talent and the greater depth, you should be strategizing to make other teams pay for that.
