    Re: Discussion: Prevent D vs Regular D? (Georgia's last drive)

    i dont like the prevent but im not the coach. We werent going to get pressure with a three man rush and that was what we needed, to get after Murray and effect the passer, not let him pick us apart no db can cover all day.

    If you rush three, then why not two. You won't get pressure with 3 anyway. If you get one sack, the clock runs like crazy. When they end the game on the five, "It worked" is a bit weak.

    Discussion: Prevent D vs Regular D? (Georgia's last drive)

    I don't care if you run goalline, prevent, 4-6, 5-2, 11-0, if you don't tackle it won't matter.

    Gurley ran HARD yesterday, but the amount of missed tackles was disheartening.

    Further, on the last drive, on every underneath pass that they threw, we should have attacked the ball carrier immediately. But on at least 2 or 3 plays, we failed to do that. Their TE caught a pass and had all the time in the world to get out of bounds.

    However, I'd be wrong if I didn't point out the fact that we were playing a bunch of greenhorns back there. Aside from Milliner & Lester everyone in our secondary saw limited or zero playing time in our defense last season.

    We won the game. That's what's encouraging.

    But if we're ever in that situation again, I hope our guys would know the urgency of TACKLING the ballcarrier and not allowing him to get out of bounds

    We probably haven't used 3-3 zone like the last defensive series much this season...they didn't execute it well at all. That whole defense is built to encourage short, middle-of-the-field passes that you tackle before they can get out of bounds. We just make a tackle as the defense is designed to allow 2 times, that game is over before they got across the midfield marker.

    In the college game, guarding the sidelines isn't that fruitful as a first down will stop the clock as well.

    I think if CNS had it to do over, I doubt that he would rush only UGA again with only 3 men.

    My wife wanted to know why I was going crazy, and I told her it was because we were only rushing 3. We had seemed to make Murray uncomfortable with 4, but 3 rushers just weren't getting there. We finally went to 4 but my thought was just bury them back deep and don't even let him get a throw off. Krymsonman

    A QB like Murry can usually chew up a prevent defense. I guess the coaches were thinking since they were out of time-outs that was the best defense to run, keep them in front of you and keep them in bounds.

    But back to your question, I would have rushed 4 DL and blitzed 1 LB. Still leaves 6 in coverage. Prevent defense usually prevents you from winning. Just ask LSU.

    The only benefit of a prevent D is to make them do something dumb (a lot more likely when there's no timeouts) becasue they are hurrying.
    And it almost worked -- Milliner almost intercepted a pass


    After that, we should've gone to normal. The review after the interception gave UGA time to go over plays on how to shred the prevent.

    And they did.


    We were a freak deflection that happened to land in someone's arms away from potentially losing that game. If the pass hadn't been caught, anything could've happened

    I was little confused to why they were rushing three man rush with few second left. I understand the purpose of the soft "prevent" defense they were playing, in order to keep the opposing defense from going out of bounds. I would have to watch the re-air of the game tonight on ESPNU to see what would've worked and what didn't. IT would've been nice to see three or four man rushing with one coming off the edge. I would rather See Murrary run. IT would force him to take the time off the clock...

    I never like to see a team go in prevent unless it is a hail mary situation. As last night proved, you lose the rush and the q'back can pick the defense apart. On top of that we still did not prevent passes from being completed. Chalk it up to we have not ran the prevent D that much because we have not been placed in that situation.

    A few games ago with our second and third string in, I saw an alarming thing in the secondary. There were several pass plays where the other team was completing passes and our guys were not turning their heads and finding the ball and let's face it, you can't defend what you don't know is coming. I thought to myself they have not had enough individual practice time to learn the position yet. However last nite I saw the same thing happen with first teamers, just not turning their head and finding the ball. Guess last years defense totally spoiled me.

    All very good points. Our tackling seems to have gotten worse as the season has progressed. Maybe the competition has gotten better which is probably the case. With the looseness of CNS after the game, I feel he realizes this team may not be the most talented but he knows they don't give up and have a lot of heart. Something to be proud of. Happy we have over a month to prepare for ND. I feel after they saw that game last nite that AJ had better be preapared to shoulder more of the load because I think they will force the issue.

    Hey guys,
    Lets give credit where is credit is due!! How many starters did we replace on D this year from last year's team, wasnt it 9 out of 11? They did this all on natural ability due to the recruiting of CNS with very little experience. We are set to roll next year.
