Out of nowhere

I had to double check, but, yes, this was a Vanderbilt defensive play against a conference opponent.

That’s how you blow the Admiral.

Somebody noticed.

Pro Football Focus has handed out its college football midseason awards.  Out of a total of eighteen awards, there was only one winner from UGA.

Frank Broyles Award (Assistant Coach of the Year)

WINNER: TODD MONKEN (OC, GEORGIA BULLDOGS)

Finalists: Phil Parker (DC, Iowa Hawkeyes), Kenny Dillingham (OC, Oregon Ducks)

Georgia’s 2021 defense carried the school to its first national championship in 41 years. Its 94.3 team defense grade was the highest in the country. The Bulldogs had eight defenders from that unit taken in the 2022 NFL Draft, with five going in the first round. If Georgia was to repeat as champs, the offense would need to step up.

Under offensive coordinator Todd Monken, the Bulldogs have answered the call. Georgia has a 90.7 team offense grade this season, third among Power Five schools.

Most Efficient Offenses in College Football | 2022
School EPA per play Rank among 131 FBS schools
Ohio State 0.380 1st
USC 0.305 2nd
TCU 0.264 3rd
Georgia 0.262 4th
Tennessee 0.257 5th

The Bulldogs are still the top-ranked team in the country due to the offense matching the defense’s elite status.

Whatever works, I say.  And whatever it takes to keep him here, too.

“I didn’t think it was necessary to suspend the guy…”

Alabama coach Nick Saban said he had reason not to suspend receiver Jermaine Burton from Saturday’s game against Mississippi State after video surfaced that appeared to show Burton strike a woman who stormed the field when Tennessee beat the Crimson Tide last week at Neyland Stadium.

Okay, I have a few thoughts on this.

First, while I’m not sure I buy Saban’s fear explanation, I do think it wasn’t a good idea for Tennessee to basically encourage its fans to storm the field after the win.  The risk isn’t so much that a crazed Vol fan would deliberately seek to harm an Alabama coach or player, but just the basic idea that there’s an accident or two that gets someone seriously injured.

That all being said, I didn’t notice anyone else from Alabama, scared or otherwise, take a poke at someone else in the crowd.  For that matter, I seriously doubt Burton was scared of the girl he struck; it’s more likely he did so out of frustration over the loss.

Finally, Jermaine Burton needs counseling?  What’s that all about?  I don’t recall hearing about any behavior issues with him when he was in Athens.

I dunno, maybe I’m reading too much into this incident, but it does seem to reinforce my feeling that there’s something strange happening in Tuscaloosa this season.
