TFW you’re discombobulated

Johnny Hodges’ candor about Georgia was refreshing.  His teammate, Dee Winters (whom you might remember as the blitzer Stetson Bennett outran to pick up a first down), well, not as much.

“They didn’t come out with any trick plays, nothing that we hadn’t seen or that they hadn’t shown on film, (but) they just completed a bunch of passes against misalignments,” Winters told DawgNation at Senior Bowl Media Day this week.

“It was the motions that discombobulated our secondary and got them confused.”

Don’t you just hate seeing a discombobulated secondary?

“They are a good team, there was talent there, but we could have saved ourselves a lot of those scores if we’d had gotten lined up,” Winters said.

It was 65-7, brother.  That’s a shitload of lining up.

    I always admired folks when they can admit “We just got our asses kicked today.” Because it happens to everyone every now and then. It’s the only way we learn anything.

    Sincerely mean the following. Georgia’s 2nd unit would have boat raced these guys. Georgia’s third unit would have beat these guys.

    They did not belong in this game. It was a great story and a great season and I’m happy for them. Actually felt sorry for their fans, especially the one’s getting rained on in the 3rd and 4th quarter.

    But they didn’t belong there. If there was any doubt at all, it was erased when Georgia drove the ball ‘at will’ 92 yards to take it to 24-7 and there were over 8 minutes still left in the half. The only success their defense had – had was keeping the turnover to just a FG, instead of a TD. And if you really want to know the truth. If you were there just watching the two teams warm up – you knew this was over before it started. Georgia dwarfed TCU. Were bigger, stronger, faster and much better coached.

    This kid must live in a video game world. But that’s nowhere close to reality.

      “They didn’t belong there” is a dangerous game to play that I personally am not a fan of. They lost one game in OT in their conference championship all year. They beat Michigan in the semi’s who was undefeated at that point and had embarrassed OSU in the shoe who most certainly “belonged there”.

      By saying they didn’t belong… you are inferring that regardless of results of the games played all year, the playoff should only feature the most talented teams. That’s Bammer logic and renders the regular season more meaningless than the existing or future expanded playoff ever will. TCU took care of their business all year long and absolutely “belonged there”. Their only problem was, “Them Dawgs is Hell”.

        Respectfully.. They did not belong there. They were completely over-matched. This is not attempt to take away the wonderful season they had. They figured out ways to win. Much credit to them. But if that team played in the SEC, with a typical SEC schedule, they would have been playing in the Outback Bowl (best case). Sorry… They did not belong there.

          Respectfully, I agree with most of what you’re saying. If your argument is that there weren’t 4 teams who deserved a shot at the Natty this year, I can get on board and honestly believe that’s the case most every year; however, we wouldn’t have gotten our first one in ’21 with that logic. But with the system we have in place, that 4th spot had to go to somebody, and nobody deserved it more than TCU (They were only ranked 3rd to avoid an all BIG semifinal). Therefore in my humble opinion, they did what they needed to do to belong. Tennessee, Bama, USC all had their shots and all of them blew it in spectacular fashion.


          • Ran A

            I don’t think we are that far apart. Belonged and deserved are a little different. Did TCU deserve to be there based on how the system was set up and how they pulled off some spectacular wins (especially against Michigan). You bet. And you’re right, UTjr., Bama and USC all blew it in different ways. In fact, UTjr. got smoked by South Carolina. Bama lost two games that they should have won and won one game they should have lost (Texas) and USC flat out choked against Utah (again) and then lost to Tulane in the Cotton Bowl. So it is more than fair to ask, if not TCU – then who. And honestly – “you got me”.

            But did they belong on the same field with Georgia? I can’t bring myself to say yes. Not sure if you attended the game, but as bad as it looked on TV, it was much worse in person. I’m not sure who were more shell shocked – their players and coaches or their fans. It was a baby seal clubbing..

            Respect and appreciate your perspective. You make a lot of great points.


            • bmacdawg87

              Same. Ultimately deserve vs. belong isn’t going to matter much longer. Once it goes to 12, there will be several teams who don’t deserve or belong in the mix every year.

              The way Kirby and crew are recruiting and developing, there just aren’t many teams out there who belong on the same field with Georgia (Damn it feels good just typing that). Go Dawgs!

      Early in the 4th quarter, TCU got a couple of first downs against our backups and looked like they might have a chance to score again. A TCU fan behind me (in the Georgia section) said “please, just let us get to double digits.” TCU punted after that next set of downs. That is all I need to say to explain how that game went to anyone who didn’t watch it.

      Our 2nd unit DID boatrace these guys. After Kirby pulled Stetson and company, you could hardly notice any difference until Kirby called off the DAWGS.

    So basically a 3-3-5 is a misalignment against UGA.

    Losers always offer excuses instead of admitting the other team was better. I wouldn’t draft this loser if he paid me. So expect the Falcons to draft him.

    By the way, Saban is the King of Excuses when his team loses.

  9. I am gonna give him a little more credit than some of you are. I have seen a couple of breakdowns that highlighted Georgia running sugar huddles or late motion causing confusion.

    I think he is right about confusion, but I think we also saw on film that they might have issues adjusting late, and exploited it.

    When they got behind, they panicked.

    If it’s the 15th game of the season and you still can’t line up by the snap, then you’ve got bigger issues than “just lining up” to win.

    Kid is just trying to salve his hurt pride a little.
    But it is a bad look.
    TCU is a bunch of good folks. Best of luck to them next year.
    I hope they beat GT in some minor bowl somewhere, 66 -7.

    The second TD (the 37 yarder to McConkey) was just a beautiful design by Monken and a clear example of them being discombobulated. We came out of a sugar huddle giving them little time to recognize. Edwards was part of a trips left set and immediately went in motion right. They looked like they were in man and the LBs didn’t communicate the switch so they both went with Edwards. Then Kenny runs a swing to the left, essentially meaning we once again had trips left. And there were now only two defenders. The CB either thought he had safety help deep or made the poor decision to leave McConkey and drop to Kenny.

    I would classify that as a forced discombobulation
