Georgia Football: Isaiah Wynn, We’re “Hungrier” Than Last Year

If you need a bit more context for my earlier post, look no further than the video below (h/t DawgTimeMag)

Georgia lost three veterans on the offensive line at the end of last season. That meant some reshuffling was going to be needed, and it’s  clear the upgrades have resulted in a group that’s ready to make some noise–even if it’s just of the spring time variety.

The interior positions were one of the more criticized spots for this unit, but the new tandem of  Pat Allen and Solomon Kindley–both of whom arrived at Georgia with a ton of promise– has made a huge difference in the overall attitude of the line. 

Both were recruited for their nastiness, and both are showing that now that they’ve been given the chance.

Add to that, the move of Dyshon Sims to right tackle, and the confidence of Isaiah Wynn at left, and you have a group that seems to know its time is now. 

As to their being more “eager”, I have little doubt the impending arrival of more competition this summer has helped feed that hunger.

It’s interesting to note Wynn’s acknowledgment of the S&C focus, as well. 

It’s clear Sam Pittman is looking to increase the foot speed of his charges, as well as make sure they aren’t pushed around this time around. 

Last year’s group had a plethora of issues holding blocks and, more often than not, even smaller opposing defensive lines had zero trouble dominating in the trenches.

This group is larger, and stronger, but the emphasis on conditioning ensures the latter two won’t necessarily translate into sleuth-footed players on the field.

That’s a good thing. 

End of the day, the question will continue to be if the defensive line regressed or the offensive line progressed?

It may well be a case of both being true, but only time will tell, and I have no doubt we’ll all be watching.

    I really hope the O-line has improved but on the flip side, I hope that the defense getting pushed around isn’t an indication that Tracy Rocker is no longer coaching the d-line.

      I don’t think that’s it, honestly. I think some of it has to do with the loss of Roquan and Big Trent. Those guys are hit makers on the field and there isn’t anyone on the team ready to step in and fill that space. At least not yet.

      Hopefully, as the summer heats up, we’ll start to hear more positive results.

    I hope the Oline is more physical. But, every spring and fall we always hear the we’re stronger, we’re hungrier, we’re faster, we’re more focused, etc.

      I know but, in defense of spring and all it brings, don’t most fan bases hear that type of talk?

      As another commenter pointed out, “proof is in the pudding”. We’ll all see how true the talk is soon enough. Til’ then …
