Default Do we have any shot against UGA?

I know, I know. I'm looking past ECU right now. As fans we can do that. I just now watched the highlights from the UGA-Clem game. They have an embarrassment of riches at runningback wow...

What do we have to do to beat them?

Obviously a big key is tackling. We absolutely have to load up on the run and attempt to force UGA to pass. Even though our pass defense is terrible.

We need to get ahead early so UGA leans more on the passing game than the running game.

Mike Davis. He needs to man up and go dominate like he's capable of. I think he'll be pumped up for this game since Gurley is one of his good friends and hopefully he'll want to show he's just as good as him.

I really don't think we have guys who can tackle Gurley and Chubb in the open field. We need some serious size up front to control the LOS so we can knock them down before they hit the 2nd level. Poor Mason Harris is gonna get swallowed up by those big boys up front. I'd love to see us put a big athletic guy like Deon Green at DE and see what he can do.

Any other thoughts?

No. They will pick us apart just like A&M did. Hutson Mason can spin it and no need to comment on their running backs. We're doomed.

No. Not the team that played Thursday night. We will get blown out by a similar margin to the a and m game.

We always have a shot, but I don't like our chances. Georgia will name the score just like TaMU did if we don't improve.

Wait until next Sunday to start worrying about UGA. The team needs to focus on getting their act together for ECU.

Default Re: Do we have any shot against UGA?

The only way we have any shot against UGA is with the fulfillment of some very enormous "ifs".

If we can master tackling in the next two weeks.
If we can teach our DBs how to cover.
If we can figure out how to pass rush.
If we learn how to fill the gaps at the line.
If Dylan settles in early and makes good decisions.
If Mike D is able to play the whole game at 100%.
If we have three consistent legitimate options at WR.

If all of these things happen in the next two weeks, then we have a chance.

We have very little chance of winning, honestly. We'll be two touchdown dogs. This is where UGA's ascendance in the East begins again. We'll be competitive again, but not this year.

Our only shot is to score 50 points, and have Gurley worn down by the 4th. Unlikely, but it could happen. I give us a 10% chance. I'll be pumped no matter what. Every week is an opportunity to do something amazing.

We will have to score a lot of points to win. Their defense isn't that great. Most likely their trio of RB's will grind us down and win the game for them. We have to have some serious ball control on offense.

I REFUSE to talk about or discuss UGA in anyway shape or form until the ECU game is over. Period.

Default Re: Do we have any shot against UGA?

to win that game we must:
- Score early. We won't win in a comeback, their run game is too dominant

- Tackle in space. DBs and LBs need to take better angles

- Make our presence felt, as fans. There was hardly any homefield advantage against aTm after the 1st quarter.

- Win the turnover battle. Realistically they are going score often, so should we, our best chance to win is to give our offense more opportunities

We have a chance. I don't believe we are nearly as bad as we showed on Thursday. We definitely have some issues but I trust in our coaches to be able to correct some of them. With all that said the prospect of stopping Gurley and Chubb is not a fun one but I think we can come up with some scheme to at least limit their impact.

Of course we have a shot against UGA.

The fans have to be loud.

Our defense probably matches up better against UGA than TAMU, as long as we scrap the 3-4.

On offense HBC can't revert to the chuck and duck, we have to eat yardage, control the ball, and control the clock. We've had games where we basically have the ball an entire quarter, that's what we need to do. Get the lead, control the clock, and try to make them beat us with the pass.

Why not? Even when we sucked we used to usually play Georgia close. Add to that the bye week uga has before they play us, usually a negative, but with Georgia we can always hope a couple key players get into trouble. Not to mention, the second I don't believe we can win a game is the second I stop watching football.

If we don't change something and change it fast, "when we sucked" will quickly change to "we suck again"! I would hope that our team and coaches have it in them to make some changes and at least make the rest of our games competitive when it comes to teams like UGA.
