    For those wondering, the offensive stats for this team are hilariously terrible:

    Dead ööööing last in red zone offense, both in efficiancy and possessions
    #127 in scoring offense
    #122 in 3rd down conversions
    #118 in 4th down conversions
    #126 on first down efficiancy
    #125 in passing offense and passing efficiancy
    #127 is scoring offense
    #124 in total offense
    #126 in time of possession

    Being the 67th best rushing team in the country is our lone bright spot. I present that with no commentary.

    We should track this during the season, see how much improvement is made.

    I expect to visually SEE improvement as far as our offense looking more cohesive, on the same page, getting into the right plays, executing a little better each week, etc. But with the massive deficit we have at OL, I don't expect actual stats to change drastically. I do feel like they will improve marginally though.

    I know we are shorthanded but we have 30 fewer yards against South Florida then Connecticut - who only has one win over Wagner to its credit.

    I'm really not in the mood to put up with Sewak-level incompetence over multiple seasons. Can we all just come to terms with the fact that Coach Pat is not worthy to run our offense and find someone who is? You listening, tStan?

    I recommend the Catapult system for tracking. CGC said in the presser that our guys were setting records on the Catapult system in recent games and practices.

    I took great solace in that.

    I wasn't sure where this should go but it doesn't deserve its own threads. These are comments from Kirby Smart about Shot gun versus under center in short yardage. UGA should be as good as anyone if they wanted to run power from under center.

    BTW this is from The Athletic; I recommend that site (paying for it) if you like college football. A ton of good content. They also have NFL and Atl United and Braves content.

    The decision to go shotgun on short yardage, which Georgia often does, and other teams do, and it makes people crazy, especially when it doesn’t work. (And it didn’t when Georgia tried it at Tennessee.) Is the thinking that when you’re in shotgun the quarterback is actually closer to the tailback, so the handoff happens quicker?

    “Not necessarily,” Smart said when I asked him that. “A lot of it has to do with tempo.”

    Then Smart pointed out that Georgia went under center at Vanderbilt, with Eli Wolf at fullback. (That play worked. But other plays under center haven’t worked.)

    “So it works both ways. There’s a lot of trains of thought on that,” Smart said, adding that as a defensive coach, when the offense goes under center it “eliminates a lot of (potential) plays” and the defense can be “a little more aggressive and they don’t have to defend as much area.”

    Teams have been converting 3rd and short, long, and in-between from the shotgun against us for years

    Anyone who still thinks Patenaude should still be employed.... You're an even bigger idiot than before.

    Gotta block to run plays. Had a 200 yard passer and 100 yard rusher with spotty protection. Progress

    the most vs Duke since 2016! More than the last scheme and, mercifully, no stupid ööööing death march in the 4th qtr when we were down 3 TDs.

    More yards than Duke. Look it up...

    3/3 on 4th down and the blocked punt returned for a TD killed us. Also some 3 and outs deep on our own end gave Duke short fields in the first half. If we stopped the run at all in the 1st half, then we were good enough to win that game.

    The game was over at half. Any 2nd half analysis or conclusions anyone wants to draw from it is moot.

    The second half was spring practice for both teams.
