"It seems like every time he has gotten the ball, there hasn't been a lot of space," Georgia coach Mark Richt said Tuesday in his weekly news conference. "He hasn't had room to go anywhere. Sometimes it's the luck of the draw when you get the ball handed to you, but sooner or later there is going to be some space for him when he gets it, and I think he'll do well."He's ready to go. Is anybody 100 percent after an ACL injury when they're just starting to get going?
If circumstances worked out, Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said that backup quarterbacks Brice Ramsey and Faton Bauta could both play Saturday.Something tells me all those fans who once clamor end for Richt to bench Murray in favor of Mason are going to be dusting off those DawgVent credentials very soon.
In that one minute or so, the head coach reiterates his faith in his longtime assistant and offensive play caller (which he should), takes responsibility for not stepping in as the head coach (which he should), puts the whole matter in perspective (as only he can), and closes the door on a difficult loss and subsequent three day meltdown.“I just want to make it real clear that I think Mike Bobo is one of the best coordinators in America and one of the best play-callers and I got full faith in the guy. It’s just like I’ve called many games in my career. I’ve never called a perfect game and they’ll be certain situations I’ll go if I had to do it again, I’d do this, that or the other but as head coach after sleeping on it or not even sleeping on it, I kind of wish I called timeout, grabbed that offensive unit and said, ‘Boys, we’re going to knock this thing in right now, let’s go. I feel like that’s what I could have done and if I had to do it again, that’s what I would have done.”“I knew what the call was, the call was good. The call was something we worked on. It wasn’t like we just called something that didn’t have a chance and all that kind of thing. The biggest thing I’ve called enough plays in my career to know there’s never a perfect game and everyone would have been cheering if we had scored. Third-down, if we had hit the right guy, it might have scored on that and everybody would have cheered and no one would have said, “Aw, that’s a horrible call.’ The calls that are the best are the ones that work. I know that and that’s just part of the business. For someone to think that I had less than full faith in Mike, that was the issue. That’s what I’m talking about. I just want to make that clear to everybody. Appreciate y’all.”

Bobo tried to outsmart himself at times, despite calling a great game in my opinion. And Richt failed to step in and overrule when necessary. But that's a tweak. That's a minor adjustment in the mindset that's between the headsets.And in the game’s biggest spots, Georgia’s coaching staff didn’t give the ball to Gurley. You do have to credit South Carolina’s defense, which successfully keyed on Gurley, especially as the game went on. And you understand Mark Richt and Mike Bobo’s desire for balance and keeping the defense honest.But sometimes that goes out the window when you have a talent like Gurley, and sometimes you can out-smart yourself. Richt, in his postgame press conference, made clear he regretted the play call on first-and-goal from the 4. Bobo probably does too, although we'll have to wait until the next time he speaks to the media to find out, as he and Pruitt again weren't available after the game.
Troy should be an opportunity to play some people and build some confidence. Tennessee's offensive line is young. South Carolina's offensive line played a great game, much better than I anticipated. And now it's painfully obvious that this defense will live and die by its pass rush.Georgia’s secondary looked like last year, players not close to open receivers, poor tackling, and just deficient in talent.Jeremy Pruitt was out-schemed by Steve Spurrier and his son, who harkened back to their 2010 win over Alabama (when Pruitt was secondary coach) and predicted in gameplanning that they could exploit the middle of the field. They did, as Georgia’s safeties and linebackers pinched the outside, and South Carolina quarterback Dylan Thompson (with no pass rush coming at him) had time to find receivers in the flat.

Nothing will come of the former. (And as Emerson points out, the OBC has reasons to complain about Saturday night's officiating too.) So the question is if anything will come of the latter.“It definitely hit the defender, and I’m going to be asking the officials what the ruling is on that,” Richt said. “I don’t know if they saw it while it happened or not. But as it deflected off the defender there was nobody in the area where the ball landed, I know that. But if the ball didn’t get hit by the defender it would have landed a lot closer to one of our eligible receivers. So I don’t know if we would have gotten called for that or not. It’s a good question.”Of course, if Georgia had just handed the ball to superstar tailback Todd Gurley on first down from the 4, the play wouldn’t be an issue. Richt said twice in his postgame news conference that he wished they had done that.
