Georgia Bulldogs: Gamecocks’ Defense Weakness Worth Exploiting
We’re using historical footage from great Georgia/South Carolina games of the past to build a gameplan for how the Bulldogs can defeat the Gamecocks.
If there’s one thing you should know about South Carolina’s defense, it’s this: The Gamecocks don’t have much a defense. At least they haven’t shown one.
Currently, South Carolina ranks 120th in the nation in total defense, and a big cause for that poor showing is an inability to cover in space and an inability to tackle in the open field.
Georgia has weapons capable of making folks miss in the passing game. Michael Bennett and Chris Conley are more elusive than they get credit for. Reggie Davis and Isaiah McKenzie are as quick as they come. Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall and Sony Michel have all demonstrated an ability to make folks miss in the passing game. Throw in a tight end/H-back group that features Jay Rome, Quayvon Hicks and Jeb Blazevich, and this could be a huge passing day for Hutson Mason—even if he doesn’t take shots downfield.
Relying on yards after catch (like the clip above) could prove to be a viable offensive assumption.
