A Headline About UGA Football I’d Make An Adjustment To…

One headline about the Georgia program I’d make a slight adjustment to.

“Dawgs Lose Key Offensive Weapon to Draft”.

“Dawgs lose key special teams weapon” is actually far more accurate!

There’s been plenty of talk about the change to the blocking scheme up front, despite Kirby showing some flexibility and using the previous zone approach at times. But what very few have talked about is the philosophy change on the perimeter with the receivers – essentially, Kirb’s only going to send out one Little Guy at a time. That’s why when folks talked about Terry Godwin’s “regression” this season or him not improving on a good FR year, it was really off-base. Godwin’s numbers didn’t explode because the staff wants two big receivers on the outside to block, which means most snaps it was a choice to have either McKenzie or Godwin on the field.

McKenzie’s receiving numbers exploded this season. He had 16 career catches coming in, put up 44 this year. But only because he played more than he had in the past. Godwin’s numbers were almost identical to his FR season. But only because he played less.

Offensively? Dawgs will be fine, Godwin will step up and have 60 catches next season. Special teams-wise? Serious challenge for the staff to replace that production from the Joystick.
