WHY BOBO IS A BETTER OC THAN RICHT

1. HE UNDERSTANDS THE POWER RUNNING GAME. I LOVE COACH MARK RICHT THE LEADER, BUT HIS OFFENSES HAVE NEVER FAVORED POWER RUNNING. OUR PRIMARY RUNNING PLAY FOR THE YEARS THAT CMR WAS OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR WAS THE SHOTGUN DRAW HANDOFF. ALTHOUGH THAT PLAY WORKS PERIODICALLY BECAUSE IT CAN FOOL A DEFENSE IN A POOR SET TO CONTEND WITH IT, I FEEL THAT IT GENERALLY WORKED SOME BECAUSE WE HAD SOLID ATHLETES MAKING IT WORK. OUR PRIMARY RUNNING PLAYS NOW ARE FROM THE I-FORMATION, WHICH WORKS SO MUCH BETTER BECAUSE THE RUNNER HAS A LEAD BLOCKER AND IS CLOSER TO THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. THERE IS NOTHING TRICKY ABOUT RUNNING THE FOOTBALL WELL. MAKE HOLES AND HAVE YOUR HORSES RUN THROUGH THEM…YOU KNOW, LIKE WE HAVE THROUGHOUT MOST OF THE HISTORY OF WINNING UGA FOOTBALL. HERSCHEL, HAMPTON AND HEARST WERE NOT RUNNING MANY DRAWS. FSU-TYPE PASSIVE TRICKERY IN THE RUN GAME COST THEM ABOUT A GAME PER YEAR, AND IT COST US A FEW GAMES TOO.

2. HE FULLY GRASPS THE CONCEPT OF A FEATURE BACK. RICHT LOVES TO ROTATE PLAYERS, WHICH BUILDS GREAT DEPTH, AND REGARDING RUNNERS IT PROBABLY COST US A FEW GAMES. HISTORICALLY, RICHT ONLY REVERTS TO A ROTATION WITH ONE FEATURE BACK AS PRIMARY BALL CARRIER WHEN THE DEPTH IS NOT THERE TO DO OTHERWISE. AND…IT WORKS. IT WORKS TO WEAR DOWN A DEFENSE WITH A PRIMARY BACK, GIVE HIM THE LOAD, LET THEM TRY TO STOP HIM FIRST. WE ALL KNOW WHO HE IS THIS YEAR, BUT EVERY YEAR THERE IS A PLAYER ON THE SQUAD THAT COULD CARRY THE LOAD. SUBSTITUTE LIBERALLY AT OTHER POSITIONS AND SHARE THE LOAD SOME AT RUNNING BACK, BUT BY ALL MEANS HAVE A FEATURE RUNNING BACK THAT YOU FEED THE BALL. AND I’M NOT TALKING HERE ABOUT A LITHE, QUICK WARRICK DUNN-TYPE EITHER. WE NEED AND HAVE A PURE STUD NOW AND EACH YEAR AT THAT POSITION AND YOU AND MIKE BOBO KNOW IT. THE HEAD COACH IS COMING AROUND TOO.

RICHT IS THE BEST MAN ANY OF US CAN THINK OF FOR THE GEORGIA HEAD COACHING JOB. AS EVIDENCE: HE WAS SMART AND HUMBLE ENOUGH TO HAND OVER THE KEYS TO THE OFFENSE.
