This will be a close game. UGA is faced with a must win and a college team is always dangerous with that motivation. It will come down to a few key plays and a turnover or 2.
Our run D was less than impressive against a lackluster unc and we face a huge task in stopping the best RB in the nation. And they get Harvey clemmons back on D.
I really wish there was a way to explain to you the effect all those quick screens had on our defensive line and linebackers, but in order to really GET IT, you have to think like a player/coach. When the QB turns and throws the ball out beyond the has 8/10 plays and they have to turn and RUN, they start to lean. When defenders start to lean and get a head start....then they hit you up the middle with some runs. ALSO. We played a lot of man coverage against UNC, b/c we are athletic enough to match up with them outside and allow our guys in the middle to run to the ball. But, they hurts when they run, b/c the secondary run support is lacking because of man responsibility. We gave up a few runs, but we didn't give up a homerun, and we held their O well under their avg from last year. Our D will be just fine against the jawja running game.
