Georgia Football: Mike Bobo on Todd Gurley, “He’s just going to have to work through it”

I can tell you guys this much, Georgia Offensive Coordinator, Mike Bobo is expecting Todd Gurley to be on the football field every Saturday for the rest of this season. He’s all good with seeing Brendan Douglas and J.J. Green come in and relieve the star tailback, as needed, but his plan is to have No. 3 out there, running the ball.

And, if you haven’t figured it out yet, that has a lot to do with the fact that this offense simply doesn’t work as well without him. In fact, it doesn’t really work at all—particularly if Bobo has already decided that what the other “guys can do” is actually jack and squat.

I’m just sayin’.

    The biggest issue we have had at UGA since Bobo took over is we have never had a strong offensive line to base our offense on. Regardless if Gurley plays or not, our offensive line does not run block. Our running backs usually have to do themselves. I mean look at Alabama. The offense is based on a solid offensive line. We need a new offensive line coach. The same with our defensive line. Our defensive lineman do not know how to shed a block and tackle a runner. Just my thoughts.

      I certainly can agree that the offensive line has been inconsistent, but I do feel that Will Friend has done a better job than his predecessor. I’ve seen this line play lights out on several occasions this season, so I know they’re capable of doing it, but their consistency in doing so definitely needs to improve.

      As for our defensive line, I like what coach Wilson has done with the rotation. Garner never got the production out of guys like Sterling Bailey, Ray Drew, or even Garrison Smith that Wilson has this year; so I do like what he’s done in his first year. That said, I am less impressed with the linebackers this season. While they have certainly improved over the last couple of weeks, they should have started off a lot better than they did—particularly Ramik Wilson—since those guys have basically been in the system better than two years.

      Just my two.

    Mike Bobo is a joke…. Play action with the ball on you own 2 yard line… When Mike was the quarterback at UGA, he was horrible… I wish Georgia would find a real/new offensive coordinator at the end of season.

    I don’t think Richt or Bobo would play him if there was any serious threat to the ankle. They’ve already demonstrated with multiple players this season (including Gurley) that they’d rather risk the game than aggravation of an ongoing injury. But once he says “it hurts, coach,” I’d take him out. More important to have him healthy for at least a quarter at Awbarn than have him go deep vs. Appy State.

    Love your stuff, by the way. Keep it coming!

      I agree; I’m sure the coaching staff will exercise caution where Gurley is concerned. My only problem is how Bobo has adjusted to his absence this season—which is to say he hasn’t done a very good job. He (Bobo) really needs to stop being so transparent where his playbook is concerned and, in order to do that, he’s going to have to start trusting the guys on the depth chart a bit more.

      Thanks for the kudos and I’ll certainly do my best 🙂

    You and I are always on the same page when it comes to Coach Bobo. With a dominant running back he’s lost.

      I mean…the lack of imagination he exhibited once Gurley left the field was astonishing. It was literally like watching two different teams offensively. Come to think of it, it was a bit offensive.
