In a passing era, this is not a list you want to be on, especially when you had a returning, experienced starting quarterback.  And essentially ran the same offensive scheme.

Georgia aside, the most interesting thing about that list is that there are six SEC teams on it and all six changed offensive coordinators after last season.

    Interesting….still a defensive conference imo.

    Bet LSU will also see a big drop this year.

    Four of those teams had to face UGA’s defense last season. That’d make almost anybody’s stats slide.


  4. Safe to say it’s no coincidence? Hehe

    Imo, this is even more justification for Kirby switching OCs. Many of those SEC programs had new QBs this season while we had Jake Fromm plus a lot more talent. We did have a new OC, though. I know I have a red and black view but Georgia stands out the most on that list. The offense would have been better had it executed better but execution is also on coaching for the most part.

    It was a good season but I still don’t think we could have done much to beat LSU so we’re probably looking at not losing to SC and having a better showing in the SECC. Would that have been enough to get into the playoff? Maybe but it doesn’t really matter now.

    Who knew so many SEC teams had awful receivers?

    How many of those 6 will have new OC’s this season?

    SEC just doesn’t have the Jimmies and Joes like the other conference. #schemedontmatter

    Doesn’t matter. It’s impossible for our offense to be worse in 2020, I don’t care which players left or which coaches are new. 2019 was an abysmally painful abomination to sit through, and Spencer Hall was 100% right in his snarky criticism of it. 2020 will be markedly better, simply because there is no other direction to go.

    I am somewhat comforted that we do not see the Wake Forest Demon Deacons on that list.

    The fact they’re all replacing OCs is happenstance and overreaction as much as anything. Only Auburn and Georgia are voluntarily making a move. Muschamp and Mason are trying to save their jobs, and the other staffs were fired. Losing players had more too do with it than anything else. Missouri replaced an NFL QB and its top two receivers. South Carolina lost Samuel in the offseason and Bentley in the opener. Auburn replaced their top receiver and QB (and only fell off by 15 yards per game). Vandy replaced a good QB with an awful one (or two). Ole Miss changed OCs last year and essentially replaced a passer with a runner by the halfway point of the season. They were also replacing their top three receivers.

    GA is on the list and still won the SEC East. If we didn’t need any more convincing that we are flush and deep with talent, this would do it for me.

    I occurred to me today that we had Mark Fox running our offense this past season.

    You know when looking at all these bad stats from last year the thing that leaps off the page at me is that Kirby and the Georgia coaching staff must have done a hell of a good job coaching the team last year to finish 12-2 and #4 in the nation.
