Saturday’s rain-shortened (or should I say lightning-shortened) game was one where not too much (offensively) was shown, but plenty could be gleaned.
As I’ve stated in the past, I don’t do game recaps (you can find those by the boatload, from writers with far greater access than me), but what was clear on Saturday is the running game will be a formidable one. There’s not a back on Georgia’s depth chart who won’t have the chance to contribute—including A.J. Turman when he’s healthy.
If they all can stay in top form, they will be a tough crew to contain for four quarters and, as far as offensive tackle John Theus is concerned—if Georgia can win ball games simply by having good production on the ground—that’s fine by him.
It goes without saying that the most important part of Georgia’s rushing attack will be the offensive line, and the big boys up front certainly looked up for the task in game one.
Next up is Vanderbilt—a team that looked woeful offensively, but one that will certainly provide a greater challenge defensively than Louisiana-Monroe. It’ll be interesting to see how well the running game, and the offense as a whole, does in Georgia’s first road game of the season.
