That is obviously the missing link. I was concerned about Morris and Co leaving our defense out there too long. Would he run the ball enough to give our defense a chance? Well the flip of that is would our OL be good enough to allow us to run the ball that much? Davidson and Gallman averaged over 5 ypc so I say yes- they did. Morris put them on awful situation by getting away from the run and being 1 dimensional. The best OL can only do so much at that point. Same for defense. Bottom line- we need a run game.

Stop living in the Past. Gurley ain't walking through our door, just our D. Morris panicked, once again. Hate to say it, but he does that a lot... Completely abandoned the run in the second half, we kept UGAy honest in the first half. We got 24-21 and everything offensively stopped, again panicked

He actually quit blitzing. Cole picked the up early. Their d line just peeled their ears back late and they say in 2 deep daring us to run. Did 5 man pressure a couple of times but that relentless pressure was 4 rushers. Mixed up the 4 with zone scheme but it was mostly 4 guys.

We actually ran it MORE times > than UGA did. 31 1st half rushes. 13 second half. We got behind by 3 and stopped running. We ran qb draw and scrambled /sacked (not called runs) the rest of game. I am informed. And I also am a coach. I know what I am talking about tyvm

I will give him a pass on the 4th because at that point we just playing catch up. And that "watch" post wasn't directed at you coren. You make very good points.

We played 22 snaps in the 2nd half. 9 passes (almost all behind the LoS) and 13 rushes. That includes the sacks as rushes, but it was still almost 50/50. The bigger issue is all the pass plays were lateral/backward, and never down the field.

Look at the 2 series after UGA Took the lead and tell me how many rushes we attempted.....and the 31 1st half a little misleading due to series to end half where we shoved it up there noses. And Cole didn't throw downfield after the int. Game changed on that play.
