The rock petters love to talk all about their offense running somewhere around 90 or so offensive plays a game. Of course, they didn’t rack up chunks of yardage or points against LSU or South Carolina, but don’t stop the gang from Clemson from pushing their narrative forward.
Clemson, without question has some very talented playmakers. But Georgia’s best chance to beat the Tigers may come by doing something that goes against the conventional wisdom seen from Mike Bobo’s offense last year.
As exciting as quick three-play offensive scoring drivers are, they’re one of the last things Georgia needs to do against Clemson. In years past, that was easier said that done for Georgia. It simply didn’t have durability of reliability in the offensive backfield.
The tandem formerly known as “Gurshall” has changed that. For the first time in a while, Bobo has a pair of running backs, and maybe more, to turn to and there’s minimal, if any dropoff when one comes out of the game for a breather.
Georgia has weapons in its arsenal to grind things out, eat clock and control the game and keep the Tigers offensive weapons on the sidelines.
Last fall, this team showed off its inner toughness on a humid night in Missouri. Chances are that it’ll have to dig deep again on Saturday night of Labor Day Weekend, and it’ll likely come in the trenches.
