About our expectations for that Georgia offensive line… you can’t expect them to defy the laws of physics, man ($$).
“Everyone knows what they’re going to get when they line up and play us. We’re going to line up and run the ball,” Georgia offensive lineman Cade Mays said. “So definitely their gameplan is to put one more guy in the box than we can block. We’ve got to get our guys blocked that we can block, and then hopefully our back can make one miss.”
Hope may be the best of things, but it’s not the greatest of offensive schemes, fellas.
And don’t think the head coach isn’t aware of it. He’s just stubborn about it.
“They’re not stacking (the box) any more than they have ever,” Smart said. “There’s not a whole lot of difference as far as that goes.”
Smart did acknowledge that Georgia now sees “hard boxes” — when the defense outnumbers the offense — more consistently. He indicated they see those perhaps 80 percent of the time, versus 70 percent last year.
It may be time to retire the phrase manball and go with the Fabris Offense in its place. Obviously, Kirby likes a challenge and we just need to deal with it.
