ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart studied UAB closely leading up to Saturday’s game at Sanford Stadium knowing his team would be tested.

    Come on Mike...give the team an A. You are so stingy when it comes to team marks. Even the UAB coach said UGA outsmarted them. This was a stellar performance by UGA....as a unit. Clicking on all cylinders. The game was never in doubt from Stetson's the first throw to Brock handing off as tail gunner. "A"

    Regardless of UAB’s defensive experience and stacking the box, our OL with all their stars should have manhandled that bunch in the run game.

    When Beck made a F- effort to preserve the shutout on the pick six, that showed me all I need to know about what he has between his ears. Brock needs to be ready, if JT leaves, this will be his team next year!

    THe score wasn't exactly indicative of some of the play. THeir defenseive line pretty much stopped the run. Our 4 and 5 star O-linemen didn't get much of a push up front. I would go so far as to say their O-line opened up several gaping holes against our vaunted defense where a runner wasn't touched for the first 5 yards. Now we closd quickly, and we stopped them when we had to , but in all honesty they ran better against us than Clemson did.

    MAybe we should hire their O-Line coach.

    Our running game and field goal kicking has definitely got to get better. I am puzzled why we haven't been playing much better in those two areas. I hope we get it going next week. Let's get it going, Dawgs!

    At the risk of sounding unappreciative, I thought the defense as well as the O-line and RB's were just kind of going through the motions at times. The D- Secondary, QB's and Receiver's looked like they came to play.

    Week after Clemson and it was UAB? They should be more focused for SC...

    We're not used to having our kicker miss two chip shots in two consecutive games. This has got to be tightened up before the season gets harder. At this point in a kickers career, the kicker has the physical talents. From here on, it's all in Jack's head. We're praying for you buddy.

  • reddawg1reddawg1 Posts: 3,284 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Yeh, a couple more of those missed chip shots and it will be in his head, if it isn't already. Probably the 2nd most disappointing aspect of the season, outside of still not blowing any holes open for our runners. Clemson I understand, they recruit the best defensive guys in the country,, but UAB? Really? Couldn't get 1 - 20 yard rub? And we're running back U?

    A more impressive run game and better run defense could have raised the grade.

    Ah, you saw it, too. Bet Kirby did, too.

    We've got work to do.

    Go, Dawgs!

    He was. Like he was zoned out or something and the half-a pursuit to run down the player. At least DJ tried last week. It's like Beck just said "oh well".

    And the run game was completely smothered. It's almost like our lineman are now taught more pass protect than run block. 1 sack in 2 weeks, but can't run the ball for anything. Gotta give UAB credit for sure, but it's like our lineman were already trying to block linebackers as soon as the ball was handed off. Kinda glad muschamp is on our sideline this week, cause he would've exploited that next game. We have got to block better on the run game. When someone as fast as Milton or cook can't get to the edge, our lineman are seriously not doing their job.

    Stetson Bennet is a true Dawg hero for all he has given the Georgia football program over the years. What he has endured and achieved is remarkable. I am totally comfortable with him being the number 1 quarterback if something were to happen to JT or if JT isn't playing well. You don't win the SEC or NC with a Freshman quarterback.
