Georgia’s No. 1 status at the midway point of its season isn’t as surprising as how the Bulldogs have managed to attain — and sustain — its perfect season.

    Great Article, Mike!

    Really appreciate how you set up kudos to various players that sometimes aren't recognized enough for their contributions!

    I know you only named one person per category, but I would also throw in the entire defensive staff, McGee and Luke and Hartley for all of their contributions on and off the field that have set us up for this year and beyond!

    Go Dawgs! Hate on Gators!

    With the injury to JTD you could argue that SBIV is the most irreplaceable. Salyer as most under appreciated is a slight reach considering the O hasn't missed a beat when BJones has played in his place. . I think Zamir White's toughness, production and consistency as the workhorse RB1 is the real most under appreciated.

    This Georgia team’s strength is that every player is all about the team and winning as a team effort. This is the primary reason for their success. As long as the players buy into the team concept, no one can stop them. 👍

    I can’t disagree about Monken. In my 69 years, I can’t remember a OC at UGA who had virtually no detractors. Even with that being said, I would have to give co-key assistants. The face of this team is the defensive line. They are what makes the rest of the defense work. Virtually every play, there is an unblocked backer because of the double or triple teaming required to block one or two defensive linemen. Without DL Coach Tray Scott, it could be argued, this team would struggle to be a national championship contender considering all our injuries.

    If you're still underrating Jalen Carter, you must not have been paying attention. I agree Salyer has been underappreciated though. His pass pro in particular has been valuable.

    Just being honest, Bobo did more with less, but Monken hasn't had all the pieces in place yet. Mike deserves a mention though.

    This. Bobo did a lot with the undersized lineman he was given year in and year out with our less than mediocre recruiting back then. He would change the entire play calling scheme when he lost a critical player. I mean look what he's done in year one with can't hit a lick nix.

  • ShoottheHoochShoottheHooch Posts: 1,571 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I agree about Bobo. He had some awesome offenses, but year in and year out, even when we were averaging close to 40 points per game, he had his detractors. That hasn’t been the case for Monken…yet.
