    The cream rises to the top. UGA has plenty of cream and it provided a Natty.....and will again.

    First, I agree with your main theme. However, you need some internal consistency. "The Dawgs’ modest but efficient offense sputtered through most of the game" Yet, in the paragraph above it, you point out that the Tide offense managed only 1 TD in 6 trips passed the Dawg 30. That's not sputtering? Monken is a guru, but can only manage to put a modest but efficient offense on the field. Sounds like Saban in the post game interviews. lol

    The deeper you dive into statistics the more confusing and sometimes misleading they can become.

    Scoring offense. Alabama 39.9. Georgia 38.6. This while GA dealt with overwhelming Receiver injuries during the entire season. The two leading receivers over much of the season were both Freshman.

    Georgia blew-out almost every opponent - opting to lean heavily on the run to close out the game during the 4th quarter. How many passing yards and passing touchdowns were left off the board by running out the clock for the final 15 minutes?

    I'm ecstatic that OC Monken is coming back. Genius is a good description for how OC Monken managed the 2021 offense.

    "The deeper you dive into statistics the more confusing and sometimes misleading they can become."


    Absolutely, BAMa threw it roughly 160 times more that UGA did and naturally amassed more passing yardage but it didn't translate into much more points than UGA. WE defeinitely could have scored many more points and gotten more passing yardage.

    THere were games where I believe we could have just passed the ball down the field at will and racked up many more points but that would have created the potential for interceptions. CKS played it safe and got the RB's some touches. It's all good.

    Not trying to be negative here, genuinely curious. Has Monken confirmed that he's not interested in an NFL job right now? Seems like there's still plenty of time for that to happen but all reports seem to indicate he's staying put.
