Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post One more thing to overanalyze

Thursday November 27, 2008

The weather forecast has turned around overnight, and now it’s looking as if a slick track is likely on Saturday.

The debate about whether rain helps the offense or defense will no doubt come up over the next day or two. On one hand, the offense knows where it’s going and the defense has to adjust to make the play. On the other hand, we’re going up against an option offense that has put the ball on the ground this year.

One thing to consider – we assume that with the option the football will be flying all over the field when the pitch is made. But Dwyer and the quarterbacks have accounted for over 73% of Tech’s running plays this year. In other words, a Tech running play is much more likely to be a straight handoff or a quarterback keeper.
