Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post OL changes on the way?

Tuesday September 16, 2008

Mark Richt hinted at possible changes in Tuesday’s press conference. The unit as a whole was underwhelming on Saturday, and Richt admits that the time has come to “probably experiment a little bit.”

It’s not the end of the world and wouldn’t be unprecedented. History has nothing but good things to say about the 2007 line and Stacy Searels’ job getting the young unit to perform, but we also saw an early season shake-up last year. Anyone remember Scott Haverkamp?

We’ve now had a few games to see how individuals perform, and remember that some of these positional battles were neck-and-neck to begin with before the Sturdivant injury caused some shuffling. The changes in 2007 made way for players like Clint Boling, and if there are changes coming this week, it might be time for Justin Anderson or Ben Jones to shine. At least the staff finally has some options to consider up front.
