The sincerest form of flattery

I’ve thought this myself.

I mean, why wouldn’t you?  (Assuming you’re not James Coley, that is.)

The question is what SEC teams have the offensive personnel to make that really go.

    I imagine Coley reading this post with one tear rolling down his cheek.

    Amen on the personnel. That play in the SECCG where Burrow evaded a sack and then hit a receiver way downfield. Took maximum effort from our future millionaire safety to keep them out of the endzone. I’d like to copy that one.

    None. There won’t be a repeat of Burrow’s level of play for a long time.

    I hope Newman proves me wrong.

      UGA does not need nor wants to see that Burrow type performance…..evah, UGA is required to have 12/13 W’s zero L’s (2020 season ?)…life is good my friend, margaritas for every one…..

      There’s one QB like that every few years. But that’s nationwide. You damn sure can’t build an offense around the hope of your QB making those sorts of plays.

        Lots of QB’s can hit wide-open receivers. That offense would have been good even with a merely decent QB. Burrow made it an all-time offense but the concepts work without a number one draft pick at QB.

    Burrow was a Houdini in the pocket. Seeing replays of him evading passrushers still has me shaking my head in disbelief.

    But plenty of his passes weren’t all that accurate. Those WRs made some terrific catches.

    Having said all that, I love the idea of attacking and going downfield. There’s a lot that can go right if you get some decent pass protection and/or can avoid the pass rush. I’m not a big fan of dinking and dunking it.

      Plenty of his passes were in a 1 foot by 1 foot window, including the one against us that would have been a TD if it hadn’t bounced off the receivers hands. Remember how good our D was last year? Well, Burrow pimp slapped us. He’s the real deal.

    I don’t see anyone on our schedule who can light up our D. Play to your strengths….

    I would watch the Notre Dame video, find a giant of a TE and play pitch & catch with him until we shut it down. I’d like to see us do the same. And a pony…

    That offensive staff at LSU last year did some fantastic things getting that roster to perform the way they did. Reminded me of my trumpet days, “inner game of tennis” type approaches.

    Like this: a teacher directs a student to sit in a chair. Then directs the student to stand up. When the student stands, the teacher asks “now, did you actively think about each muscle in both legs, arms, and back to achieve your instruction?” Answer, no, I just stood up. “Are you aware of how many bodily functions just activated without your specific instruction, it just “happens”? No. The lesson is, you know what your goal is, get out of your own way and let your body do what needs to be done. Be determined, prepared, and confident.

    I really haven’t watched too much of LSU’s offense from last year other than what they did in the SECCG. But was their offense really that innovative? Were they really doing so many things different that helped lead them to an all-time great offensive season? I guess what I’m basically getting at is, were the X’s and O’s the driving force behind their special season, or was it the Jimmy’s and Joe’s?

    I know that Burrow played out of his mind all season long but, how much did they play calling/design contribute to the juggernaut that was the LSU offense last year? And if the play calling/design was the big difference, then what was so different/innovative that made it pretty much impossible for them to be stopped?

    I know this is the 10 million dollar question that all DC’s are trying to answer but I figured the GTP community here could shed a little light on this topic for me.

    Why is it always someone else who catches lightning in a bottle for a year? Why is it always LSU in 2007 or Florida (gag) in 2006 that gorks its way to the MNC?
    What did we do to deserve the teasing inflicted on us since 2002?

    LSU’s 2018 offensive personnel was the same as 2019. Kinda makes a fella wonder.
