Hurry up Bobo

It's increasingly been on my mind, as well as many others, so I'm just going to leave this here after finding it last night. It's from a Friday mailbag, but not at all stale if you ask me.
Andy Johnson: With Georgia seemingly a score often team and be scored on often team why not go with the hurry up for points?
RN: You've got me on that one. You want to see Mason light up the passing game? Go full speed. I said at the beginning of the season that one of the biggest changes we needed to see out of Bobo's play calling would he go as fast as Mason wants to. By his own admission, Mason likes to "grip it and rip it." Look back at the Georgia Tech game. Georgia fell behind until the offense went hurry up. Mason is like Ricky Bobby -- he wants to go fast. Having him sit in the pocket waiting for routes to develop like Aaron Murray is a bad idea. That is not who he is. If Bobo floors it then Mason will respond.
As long as the coaches are tinkering with the QB reps, isn't it worth giving Mason a tempo he prefers?
