    Should GT Pray for Lightning Against UGA?

    Yeah I know, you are taking it one game at a time and you don't want to talk about UGA yet, but I do. So if you don't, just move along then. UGA played a real game against a real team last Saturday so there is actually something tangible to talk about.

    UGA looked great against Clemson, that new DC they have got made great halftime adjustments and shut the door on that explosive Tigers offense in the second half.

    Gurley is as good a RB as there is in the country and I think UGA is better with Mason at QB. Murray may have been the better pure QB, but with Mason they will focus more on the run and he seems to manage the game better and is less prone to mistakes.

    UGA always seems to have a lot of injuries under Richt, though. Not sure if it is a deficiency in the strength and conditioning program or what, but injuries are always the equalizer so if they get hit with a lot of them this year, then GT's chances could improve by game time.

    At this point in time, the gap in talent appears to be as wide as it has been in recent memory.

    Listening to Coach Gene ex HC from Aubie and he broke the game down.He said Ga has young and not so fast cbs and first half they were getting beat on deep passes so......in second half he dogged and sent linebackers right up the middle .What happened is a back had to block a big big linebacker and in turn put pressure on the qb.My two cents is they are better at THIS time than in past few years mainly due to ,as you said,a DC that can make adjustments on the run.They have four good quality backs but again if the Gurley beast goes down...not so sure Chub is as good as they say he is.Again they played well but according to the Augusta paper today Clemson OC said they missed something like30 assignments which hurt.I will say keeping Gurley on kickoff team is not that smart a move due to injury but we all know how MR falls into garbage and comes out smelling like a rose.they beat a quality team of good athlets now can the kick the cocks after the showing they put on is a different story..........I think they can.

    Well last year seems we heard the same story about the talent gap and except for some unfortunate bounces we would have beaten UGA in regulation, as it was we lost in OT. Either UGA is not as well coached as us or the talent gap is not as large as you perceive.

    I would go with coaching since the Aubie game says alot about their attitude toward the pass.Talent is there in abundance but to me....when they play somebody with equal talent they make more than normal mistakes.I think coaching is getting better as new DC shows but its a long way to the end..shooot most of them may be in jail by then.

    Tech should pray for 40 degree temps and a cold rain. That worked in 1974 in Athens. In 2004, the weather turned nasty. The crowd bailed. Greene got hurt and Tech nearly won.

    It's definitely coaching. Though closeted Dawg and Johnson fan CobbTech disagrees, Richt is one of the weaker game-day decision-making coaches in America. Fewer have done less with as much talent as he recruits than Mark Richt. Great recruiter - dismal coach. When you look at all that NFL talent he rolls thru Athens, you gotta wonder why his teams never play for a national championship.

    I am talking about this year, not last year. Last year UGA had a ton of injuries. Like I said in my post, if they have a bunch of injuries this season, then the game could be a different story.

    Yeah, what a bum. He's won 70% of his SEC games. Not bad for one of the worst coaches in America.

    You know, Alabama, LSU, Auburn and Florida have recruited some studs too.

    I guess the injuries we sustained prior to the game weeren't as meaningful. Hell when your roster is gushing with 4 and 5 stars do injuries matter that much?
