Good piece from Seth Emerson ($$) about how Georgia’s having a dominant season without generating many dominant player statistics:
But the story of this Georgia offense goes beyond that. It includes about a dozen skill-position guys who were top-100 prospects, including a handful of five-stars, so many good options that they eat into their potential stats…
Bennett compared it to Georgia’s defense, which he said plays “more complementary defense,” and indeed the major stats (tackles, sacks) are spread around. Nakobe Dean leads the team with only six sacks (13th in the SEC), but Georgia is second as a team with 45 sacks.
There are plenty of reasons why, but a couple of the obvious ones are team depth on the defensive front seven, allowing Lanning and Smart to rotate personnel to keep players fresh and Monken’s play designs, which work to spread the wealth around on offense.
