Murray is not a 3 step drop back and throw kinda guy. He needs a lot more time to let things develop. Only concern for me is jamming that running game. Do that and its lights out in Georgia.
I think a lot of people underestimate how difficult it is to win on the road. Especially in the SEC. Especially in Athens. History shows we are not the same team on the road as we are at home. People think UGA will be quiet when we have the ball just like in Willy B but truth is they are tired of losing to us and will give us hell when our offense has the ball.
This will be a knockdown drag out affair and will likely be decided in the 4th quarter.
I think we are the better team, but the better team does not always win in these kind of games. Here are my 3 keys to the game:
1. Bring Energy
- Sanford will be rocking and UGA will be ready to get the bad tastes out of their mouths from last week. We have to equal the energy that UGA will come out with.
2. Stop Gurshall-
We have to stop them or at least contain them. Murray will be much more effective if they are finding running room.
3. Win the turnover battle-
I believe we're the better team. But if we start turning over the ball that can nullify what advantage we have. If the better team wins the turnover battle, they win the game 99.9% of the time. Why is this a concern? First road game and in a harsh environment. Gotta take care of the ball and force some turnovers ourselves. The (over)confidence by some of y'all is great but it invites bad karma. Playing a top 10 UGA team on the road is never easy.
