    Everyone loves LSU this year because they are "so explosive". As the Senator wrote on his blog, Georgia actually is averaging more yards per play than LSU.

    Sure, the offense could open up a bit. But to say that it was "conservative" merely because Georgia ran the ball a lot is unfair.

    Kirby's philosophy is to pound the other guys defense into submission, while keeping his defense fresh on the bench. The offense is built for that. Shootouts and scoring in 4 plays and keeping our defense on the field is NOT Kirby Smart football.

    I happen to agree with Timmy. Yes, Kirby’s philosophy is to wear opposing teams down but that just isn’t going to work against the Bamas and Clemsons. In order to win a championship, they will have to open things up, which is Timmy’s point. I didn’t realize that Georgia’s yards per play was greater than LSU. But def not in points per game.

    I don't know how good Auburn is, (they cerainly look like they have turned it around on offense). I think we'll find out this weekend against Florida, but they dropped 21 on Miss State with only half the 1st quarter gone. I heard some pundits saying MSU would give them a battle. THey didn't. The game was over by the 2nd quarter. The UGA - Vandy game should have been over by half-time but they went the conservative route. Anyone of Auburn, LSU, BAMA, OKLAHOMA, and even Florida if you come in not clicking immediately can put you in a hole so fast your head will be spinning and then what? THe run game will be nullified and Jake will be pressured and hounded because he's not mobile. TIme to master the passing game(now) for when it's critical on down the road.

    Definitely gonna have to DO MORE on offense. Give Jake the time and he will make it happen. But in the end as long as we win, thats all that matters. Go Dawgs!

    Coach Smart needs to Trust Jake Fromm .as much as he Trust Our great FG. kicker, Blankenship.....Both, have earned this Trust!......we alumni/fans will support this Trust and the Results from it......play to win...Coach.

    Tebow left out one small tidbit. We have to win games if we’re going to win a natty. How we win is really unimportant as long as we win. I don’t think we’ll lose out on a natty being 15-0 because we don’t open up the offense.

  • rhbatchrhbatch Posts: 279 ✭✭✭ Junior

    We're 4 and 0. As long as we keep that 0 in the loss column, I think the coaching staff is doing a great job. I'd rather win 3-0 than lose 49-48 (or any other score for that matter). Just my opinion.

    Our competition for the CFP's light up the board every week. I realize that all we have to do is win but I think in today's environment you need to look good doing it. At times we look outstanding, at times we look boring and almost lost. We have the talent to light it up like the Bama's, Sooner's and yes, OSU, but something seems to be missing, that would be how our coaches approach the game.

    If we're going to recruit thoroughbreds, turn them loose Coach.

    you know who I am "very unimpressed with"......Clemson, Alabama! This is the year of the DAWG!

  • ShoottheHoochShoottheHooch Posts: 383 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    Keeping the ball out of your opponents hands is also good offense!

    I am unimpressed with Tebow. If ever there was a talking head, it's Tim!

  • Billybob101Billybob101 Posts: 127 ✭✭✭ Junior

    If you read Mike Griffith’s article comparing this year’s offense to others years in the Kirby era you’d see it isn’t the explosiveness per play, but the fact that we run so few plays per game that keeps us from the video game numbers. Go up tempo and maybe that changes, but defensive coaches are always going to prefer a score slow to score fast approach. Another thing about that ND game: we actually went deep more than we’re getting credit for. We just couldn’t complete those throws because of the great coverage (or pass interference, take your pick) of the ND backs.

  • 1SICemDAWGS11SICemDAWGS1 Posts: 276 ✭✭✭ Junior

    And I'm very unimpressed by ANYONE that is or was a gator..

  • ShoottheHoochShoottheHooch Posts: 383 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    Bama, OSU, and Oklahoma have lit it up playing against air. Clemson just scored 21 against a bad defense because by "opening it up" you also open yourself up to making mistakes and the possibility of losing to a bad opponent.

  • tommieleetommielee Posts: 259 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Too many people and now coaches have fell in love with Oklahoma's style of football, score a point a minute, forget about defense. If the Dawgs win 3-0, I'm entertained, I don't need no 70-0 blowout to watch the Dawgs play. Besides Tebow is now a talking head on TV, he want's those blowouts, so he and others can Yak It Up and try to impress you that he knows more than Kirby.

    We can probably win 9 or 10 games by just running the ball. To compete with the likes of Auburn , Clemson, LSU , Ala or Ohio State we will have to open up the offense
