If you think Georgia’s offense is about to drop a whole bunch of “who saw that coming?” on LSU Saturday, maybe you should hear what Kirby Smart’s saying first.
“You can’t change who you are completely in a week,” Smart said on Tuesday night. “Certainly we’ve got different groupings, different packages, different use of guys.”
Georgia’s personnel dictates its philosophy.
“We’ve got a lot of big guys,” Smart said. “We’ve got tight ends, backs, receivers, just not as many as we’ve normally had, but I don’t think there’s going to be a major wholesale change in a week.”
The No. 4-ranked Bulldogs (11-1) have been winning with a formula that largely consists of dominant defense and an efficient offense that most often refuses to beat itself.
“The No. 1 thing that indicates success is, don’t turn the ball over, and (two,) get explosive plays,” Smart said. “We’ve been good at one and we’ve been just okay at the other.”
Jake Fromm’s Job One is the same thing it’s been since the South Carolina game: don’t turn the freakin’ ball over. If the explosive plays come, they’ll come.
Just don’t expect Coley to reinvent the wheel this week. Schematically, what we’ve seen is what we’re gonna get.
