It’s a largely complimentary post about Georgia’s defense, so I don’t really want to dump all over it, but it’s worth noting a flaw in bloggers of one school offering their in-depth analysis of the opponent of the week. Here’s what this Roll ‘Bama Roll breakdown had to say about one unit group’s performance in the Tennessee game:
Against Tennessee, the ILBs were primarily Quay Walker and Nakobe Dean, both high profile recruiting battles won by Georgia over Alabama. Others will rotate as well, but this is a deep and athletic group.
“Primarily”? How do you neglect to mention Monty Rice there? He had a monster game, capped by a strip sack and score.
Again, the point here isn’t to get all snarky about this. Just bear in mind that most folks writing about their school’s opponent of the week often don’t know as much as they project. And, yes, I include myself in that observation. (Which is why I tend to limit myself to the obvious when I do step out like that.)
