@goatdawg @meansonny @dan765  I like the idea of him getting reps against the #1s all year on the scout team, though.  It's a great opportunity to get a closer feel for the speed/strength of the game.

Gentry said that there was a great buzz about him when he showed up for workouts.  But that buzz vanished in camp (not a peep from other players about him in camp).  Gentry implied that 'not a peep' isn't bad.  But it doesn't stand out as top scout team member (there can only be one, and I guess it wasn't him).

@Tree1 @meansonny He saw the majority of plays against GT.  They had our front 7 in a tizzy.

@Tree1 @meansonny We honestly attacked UF much like we attacked Auburn.  We were not aggressive.  We stood on our blocks and tried to stuff the play when the ball came by (a common way to play against a mobile QB so that we don't open up huge running lanes).  The difference was Florida's ability to hold (legally if you want to call it that) and beat the snot out of us with it.  Maybe we should have been more aggressive.  But aggressive and in the wrong gap can be deadly, too.

@Tree1 I like Carter out there.  But he too has to learn to read plays better.  He got sucked inside a lot and lost contain.  I don't remember looking at him and thinking he got physically handled... but it appeared like he was guessing at times and he guessed wrong.  Playing as a true freshman is tough.  I'd love to hear Mr. Jenkins thoughts on the challenges that Jordan faced and how those challenges evolved throughout his career.

@Tree1 You have to look at how difficult the job is.

Playing the end in a nickel defense (4 man front) has to handle contain.  That is hard enough sometimes when playing a good right tackle.  It gets even harder when you are facing a double-team (we all saw Jarvis Jones get washed way outside in this at times).

Playing OLB in the 3-4 defense (often a 5-2 front against a running team).  There is still the right tackle to deal with, but there is better leverage by the linebacker and less of a chance of an effective double-team.  There is also less responsibility trying to effect a dive play while out so wide.

Playing a star/slot position.  You are matching up against a tight end or Michael Bennett type run blocker.  Even if there is a pulling lineman, you have space and leverage to make a play.

Floyd is a matchup nightmare as a star/slot defender (you can call it a 4-3 OLB if you want when Pruitt's defense plays against a diamond formation / veer formation).  Floyd is going to struggle closer in the trenches in a 4 man front (just like Grantham's defenses struggled against the run when spread out to a nickel defense).

@JHD=Free Gurley @meansonny Defensive style... I'd guess Florida.  But Auburn puts up points and that changes the way an offense attacks a defense.  Because of that, Auburn is a much more dangerous opponent.

@JHD=Free Gurley @meansonny Florida and Auburn have the two toughest defenses remaining (obviously).  Florida is better at turnovers (which can swing a game).  Auburn is better at keeping opponents off the scoreboard.  Both are solid against the run.

@therealdray I like the idea of blitzing cornersbacks against the run.  It can be telegraphed.  But you've got speed into the backfield to disrupt the timing of the play.

@JHD=Free Gurley That's the last thing I would do (8-9 in the box).

4-3 with the linebackers and safeties off the line.  Crash them down on the snap.  You have to attack us with angles.  Bodies jumbled up on the line of scrimmage just gives us more home-run plays.

@JHD=Free Gurley @meansonny Thanks.  That was a confusing way for me to word the question.  I know that the positions shuffle from base to nickel.  I was just curious if we are throwing out the same starters from Tennessee to Vandy to Mizzou to Arkansas in their respective schemes.

It sounds like we've made 1 adjustment.  But for the most part, it has been consistent and not tinkered with on a game to game basis.


cheers

I haven't watched hardly any film this season.  Do we have a starting 4 DBs in our base?  OR a starting 5 DBs in our nickel?  Or does it change from week to week (i.e. Missouri is different than South Carolina.  Or Arkansas is different than Vandy)?

@RaleighDawg @Mae_ka_dudi I was so glad to see Arky go to the air.  The last type of opponent that we need to face is a desperate team willing to go 3 yards and a cloud of dust with 4 downs all the way for 60 minutes.
The more a team goes to the air, the more good things (and some bad... but the good will be turnovers and give us the game) we will receive.

@Mae_ka_dudi I feel that same way.  Any team can beat us on any given Saturday.  But it will be more than likely that no team will want to face us again when the game is over.  We're a frustrating bunch.  And will punch an opponent in the mouth.

So long as momma isn't in the hospital needing money for surgery, he's playing for UGA.

The kid is angry at a wrong.  he wants to make it right.  And that is only done on the field (hopefully in the Georgia Dome).

@nickmac6 You will probably see a 5-2 front with Josh Dawson on one edge (maybe Drew) to try and force things back in for the pursuit.  Jenkins might actually move inside to keep the speed on the field.

It would be wrong to try and match power with power against Arkansas.  Putting a guy like Dawson (254 pounds on the edge) could be key.  Putting a quick first step like Jenkins on the inside could disrupt a lot of timing with penetration.  

We want to penetrate into the backfield without losing contain on the edge.  Quickness... not strength... is more vital to penetrating into the backfield.  We just can't let them get outside and running into our DBs out on the perimeter.

@nickmac6 They were in nickel and we were in a 4 man front using 2 OLBs.  Thornton and Bailey were the DTs.  Jenkins and Floyd were on the edge.  They weren't just gashing us up the middle.  They ran away from us on the edges.  My point being that speed is important when you are tracking down an athletic tailback.  I don't expect us in a lot of nickel based on what people are tellingme.

@ManOnFire I'm sure he wants to win more than anyone.  But his job is to hold the Arkansas to fewer points than we score.  If he's worrying about this, we already lost.  Rule 2 of fight club: focus only on what you can control.

@ClassicCityDawg2010 @goatdawg I don't know that he hates UGA.  According to himself, he watched a few minutes of fall practice and didn't like the way that Mason looked.  Based upon that one set of drills, he has picked against UGA every game this season.  He's probably 1-5 on those picks.  So take his future picks worth a grain of salt.

@Ricky "El Gringo" McDurden Good piece.  But I don't agree.  I bought UGA #3 jersey waaay before Todd Gurley.  I watched football games started by walk-on tailbacks (referencing TV revenue).  And I've never bought merchandise from a school other than UGA.  It's the colors that I cheer for.  I liked Marcus Lattimore.  But I never once cheered for the guy.  I can't agree that I would be a Gurley-man if Todd played for the Toronto Argonauts instead of the Georgia Bulldawgs.

@ClassicCityDawg2010 I don't mind the penalty.  I know what the powers that be are trying to do.  It's the ejection for that type of play that is sad.  There wasn't much wrong with JJ's efforts on that play.  And there are helmet to helmet collisions between the tackles much worse than that on almost every snap which the league (and everyone) are perfectly happy with.  But it is what it is.
