EALEY DOES IT…..

Aaron Murray, Zach Mettenberger or Logan Gray…….which inexperienced, highly touted QB will the Bulldog Nation hang their hopes on in 2010?  From where I sit,  I would bet the farm on Aaron Murray.  How can I be so sure you ask? Because he held the clipboard all last year……DUH.  Now that we have answered that burning question, let’s move on.

Consider this ……31 – 3.

That’s Georgia’s record under Mark Richt when they post a 100 yard rusher.  The three defeats coming in a 4 point loss against Boston College in 2001,  a 7 point loss against Florida in 2002 and a 4 point loss against  South Carolina in 2007.

In the Brian Van Gorder era of defense, we were 11-2  when we had a 100 yard rusher.  In the Willie Martinez era of defense,  we were 20 – 1.  In case your wondering,  only 2 of the 31 wins came against FCS opponents.  So,  I ask this simple question…does it really matter how bad the defense sucked when we do what Georgia does best?

Todd Grantham,  if your reading this,  send Mike Bobo a link and suggest that he and his running game coordinator place some emphasis on beating folks up on their side of the ball too.
