Tennessee Path to Victory

Tonight, when Scott and I recorded the Tennessee preview of the Waitin' Since Last Saturday podcast, we talked about the Tennessee path to victory.  While I went on about protecting the ball and being successful at finding plays that allow us to score TDs instead of FGs, I was thinking about Bill Connelly's Five Factors:
Five Factors
OffenseDefense
CategoryAvg.RkAvg.RkNat'l Avg.
EFFICIENCYSuccess Rate40.8%7530.4%940.1%
EXPLOSIVENESSIsoPPP1.39140.9251.17

FINISHING DRIVESPts. Per Trip in 405.39193.29164.38
TURNOVER MARGINEXPECTED2.0532Turnover Luck (PPG):
-3.81
ACTUAL-173
The tl;dr version is that on offense, Georgia is pedestrian at gaining the requisite number of yards to be in a position to get a first down in a series of four downs, and very good at explosive plays and converting trips inside the 40 yard line into touchdowns.  On defense, we are wrecking shop everywhere.

That isn't a surprise considering that the offensive line and edge blocking remains the one thing this team isn't excelling at.  We are much better than last year and improving, but it remains that one 'yeah, but' when you start talking about the eyeball test for the team as a whole.  Essentially, that is reflected in the advanced stats as efficiency.  

Tennessee's Dline is their best unit. The offensive line and Chaney have their work cut out for them, again, to find plays to neutralize that unit.

Auburn Hoops (shockingly) is Caught Up in Federal Bribery Case

Well, this isn't good:

Bet Bruce Pearl ends up wishing he's kept that food sales job before this is over.

UPDATE - Put South Carolina in the pile, too:
​In one alleged scheme, Emanuel Richardson, an assistant coach at the University of Arizona, Anthony Bland, a coach at the University of Southern California, and Lamont Evans, an associate coach at Oklahoma State University, were charged with accepting cash bribes from a sports agent and a financial adviser.
Mr. Evans, until March, coached at the University of South Carolina, and the charges stem from his work there.

Anatomy of an Interception

One of the things I was most worried about going into the Mississippi State game was how Fitzgerald was capable of using his legs to hurt aggressive defenses.  Giving credit where it is due, Georgia did a fantastic job of keeping him in front of them and delivering strong messages that running isn't the best choice when he made that decision.

However, there was one play in the third quarter that was emblematic of the usefulness of not delivering that big hit message.


If the video doesn't start at 1:17, go there. Mississippi State is first and ten and opts to run Fitzgerald on a designed keeper that gains about two yards that ends with him getting chased out of bounds. The rub: it was from the left hash mark to the wide side of the field.  That is a 45+ yard run to gain two yards.

Fitzgerald then attempts a pass on an out pattern that was thrown wide of his receiver.  Not taking away anything from Baker's very good read on the play, but it was a throw that a QB with fresh legs has a bit more touch on.

Extrapolating that to what Tennessee wants to do, we won't likely see Dormady run like that...unless we make him. Tennessee will hope to establish a running game with Kelly to set up looks for Dormady down field.  Dormady is much less comfortable facing pressure than Fitzgerald is, so getting to him early and often makes plays like Baker made that much more likely.

My Favorite Series Last Night

This is about pride:

2-10 UGA 22 Thompson,K. pass complete to Thomas,Deddrick for 20 yards to the UGA2, 1ST DOWN MS (R. P15
LeCounte).
1-G UGA 02 Hill,Kylin rush for 1 yard to the UGA1 (Malik Herring;Juwan Taylor).
2-G UGA 01 Hill,Kylin rush for loss of 1 yard to the UGA2 (Monty Rice).
End of game, clock 00:00.
10 plays, 46 yards, 3:00

That pure standing up and saying you won't do this tonight, despite it not mattering to the outcome. That is what teams going places do.

As impressive as everything else that happened last night was, that was the most impressive series to me.

Mississippi State Bulletin Board Alert

Reading over a Jackson Clairon-Ledger article on former UGA turned Bizzaro Dawg Johnathan Abram, this jumped out at me:


“It will be a great feeling,” Abram said. “To get a chance to go between the hedges but on the opposite side ... I mean, I just look forward to going in with my team and, honestly, just beating the brakes off of them.”

That's cool and all, but I'll still take another one point, win.
