    How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    One other thing to add. We have not played our A+ game as of yet this year. Every year under Saban, we have come out in a big game breathing fire and brimstone and we have proceeded to just crush the opponent. For example I give you the SECCG of 2009, the Blackout game, the BCSNC game last year. We haven't seen that team yet. I think you will see them this week in Atlanta. I'd hate to be a Dawg.

    True. Tech's offense was running all over GA. I think we will be alright.

    UGA gave up over 1000 yards on the ground more than we did.

    Yeah, I don't think our defense will be the factor in the win. If you remember our close games were because we couldn't move the ball on offense. I think our offense has clicked and AJ and Cooper are healthy again.

    Our defense did a great job considering that Mettenberger was having the game of his life. And we played the Heisman winner who is a machine.



    So we need long drives and plenty of Circle Button and Yeldon.

    How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    I was talking about matchups and our clear weakness at rushing the passer. I believe that Murray can be bothered though and he is known for meltdowns. I think we saw the plan against AU and we'll see how deep UGA is on the front 7.

    That triple option is hard to defend. Rushing is pretty much all Tech does so the rushing yards doesn't surprise me. We saw last year that a good triple option offense can certainly put up some yards on you if you're not accustomed to defending it. I think Georgia is built more to defend the traditional rushing attack as is Bama. Roll Tide!!!!!!!!!!

    Ga. benefited from not playing Alabama, LSU, ect this year. They had an easy schedule for a ride to the SEC East title.
    Ga. benefited from playing TAMU early, before they caught fire...

    I don't believe Ga. is as physical as LSU.
    I don't believe Ga. is as fast as TAMU.

    I was wrong about TAMU, but I don't see Ga. winning.
    Either way the SEC winner should beat ND.
    Georgia didn't play TAMU.

    Their last 3 games period:

    Ga Southern - 302
    Ga Tech - 306
    Auburn - 57

    658 yards in 3 games -- 219/game

    2 option teams on that list. they probably had 60-70 carries. go look at the rushing stats for Florida and Ole miss. last season Bama had probably the best defense in many years. They allowed 302 rushing to Ga Southern

    Re: How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    You can really throw out those Ga Southern and GT games as anything highly meaningful to our offense. We aren't a cut-blocking, triple-option based offense, so the carryover is minimal for us. Lets look at the Florida game for any offensive clues. I believe their tailback had a good day as a runner but Drisksel was running for his life any time they passed.


    The biggest issue is that we can't blitz without getting immediately burned and the four man pressure is ineffective and opens up deep crosses and square ins.

    Big A Re: How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    I look to the Scarolina game. They socked GA in the mouth from the beginning and dominated. We certainly do not have the pass rushers that Steveo has but, all things being equal talent wise, I like our coaching advantage and physicallity in this game.

    I'm saying this now! We are going to win this game by 3 touchdowns and are going to gain over 250 yards on the ground against these guys! If not, I like my Crow fried! We can only be who we are and we are better than them!
