What Georgia football coach Kirby Smart said about Alabama
How Georgia finds the edge and what the defense needs to do to succeed against Alabama is the country’s main scoring offense.
“Well, I don’t know. I’m excited to see. I’ve always liked the challenge, and we’ve had a good defense. We have committed a good crime. The game will come down a lot more than just those two units, I can assure you. It will boil down to our offense and how their defense and special teams play, but I’m excited to see that. I know our people are excited about the challenge. I’m sure, offensively, it’s the same for them. They’ve heard about our defense and our defense has heard about their offense, so it’s a great opportunity for both units to go out and compete and play, but I’m excited to see that. As he always does, he’s going to boil down to the mound line. They have success in running it, and they will have a great play-game action game. If they don’t, you try to make them one-dimensional, and it’s hard to do that against Alabama. “
How well they have succeeded in the long crimes of college college football and in Alabama crime.
There are players, ‘who have made them a good success. They have really good players. SAARC [Steve Sarkisian] Works great for implementing a system that kids can implement. It depends on the really hard ones to cover out. They have got one of the best backs in the country, if not one of the best backs in the country. Private [Harris] Runs a really hard ball, and it’s massively ahead. So, aggressively, they are not built like some of these teams who take the tempo all the time and hurry all the time. They can go up-tempo and they can do tempo well, but they are really big, they can take shots in the field with explosive widths near them. They protect you the whole area.
“I think college football as a whole is more aggressive because the rules allow it that way – you may have a lineman a little bit ahead in a college ledge, so the RPO game gets bigger. You can tempo at a much higher rate in college football. The tempo could not succeed in the NFL because you get your quarterback hits and, to be honest with you, a lot of NFL teams are not made to go to their linemen tempo.They are not built to go 70, I mean play 100 games There are tempo teams in college ledge football football that get the most teams statistically. I think there’s a lot to do with success and the numbers you’re looking at. Alabama is a great one with really good plans and really good players. Monetizes the system. “
Given the size of Alabama’s offensive line, Jordan Davis on how important this week will be
“It simply came to our notice then. The movement in the middle, because it is huge. If I had about three Jordan Davis I would feel a lot better, because we need to be able to match him [Alabama players] Evan Neil and [Alex] Leatherwood and all the great people who have met him. But we’ve got some guys who will go there and fight, and we’ve got a little bit of depth, so we can try and use those people. “
