I almost questioned putting this post up, becuase I don’t want to give any opposing team a competitive advantage against UGA. But then I thought, if an opposing defensive coordinator is reading our lowly blog to get hints on how to stop UGA, then it probably won’t be that much of a close game.
No, the last two times Georgia has run a 2 point conversion play, I have accurately described the play that will happen. And it has. And it has been a successful conversion each time. So I would like to take this outlet to publicly brag on myself for being so astute.
Since 2006, I can think of going for 2 three times. I could be wrong, but I doubt it.
Against Georgia Tech in 2006, the Dawgs went for two to go up by 3. Lining up in the shotgun, Massaquoi went in motion to the right, Stafford rolled right and hit Massaquoi in the endzone.
Against Michigan State last season, the Dawgs went for 2 to go up by 7. Lining up the shotgun, Malcolm Mitchell lined up to the left, went in motion to the right, and Murray rolled out to the right and hit a pass in the endzone.
Against Missouri on Saturday, the Dawgs went for 2 to go up by 7. Lining up in the shotgun, Michael Bennett went in motion, and Murray rolled out to the right and hit the pass in the endzone.
As Georgia was driving down the field Saturday night, I told my friends who were over watching the game that if we score a TD and go for 2, then the play will be a pass play out of the shotgun where the receiver goes in motion to the right, Murray will roll right, and throw to the receiver that went in motion.
And I was right.
That feeling of being right happens so infrequently, I just had to share.
