The Dawgs are talking as they get ready for LSU:
“Our offense is definitely better than Alabama’s. We can run the ball as well as pass the ball,” [Sanders] Commings said. “Aaron Murray’s a great quarterback. He has experience. So we don’t have to have a perfect game because our offense has our back and we have their back.”
Maybe so, Sanders. Maybe so.
However, the statistics don’t seem to agree with you: Alabama has the conference’s second-best yard per game average at 433.40, while the Dawgs average 423.70 per game. The Tide also scores 36.0 per game, good for third in the SEC, while UGA averages 34.0.
Oh, and someone may want to tell the Dawgs they aren’t playing Florida this week:
“There’s been situations this year where that has happened, where they scored, when a team comes back and catches a pick and scores again,” Commings said. “We’ve been down. Look at the Florida game [a 24-20 Georgia win], we were down 14 points, so we’re not worried about that. And Arkansas, they don’t have the defense we have. When LSU got the ball, they pretty much scored at will whenever they wanted to.”
The Dawgs have, as the pundits are saying, a “puncher’s chance,” and I actually think they will play well. But to do that Murray better be “on” and they’ll need to muster some way to run the ball.
