If you thought the Boise State game was bad, don’t expect things to get much better for the Georgia Bulldogs in week 2.
Looking back at the Boise State game, it’s simple. You can’t win a game you don’t play to win. Yes, I will say it. Georgia did not play to win the Boise State game.
Now obviously, the players and coaches will all say that they want to win every game they play, but when you are conservative down big in the third quarter, you are only making a lie out of yourself.
The situation was a run draw Mike Bobo called on 3rd and 16 down 21 points in the third quarter. And then followed that
genius move by punting on fourth down.
When you do stuff like that, you simply are not playing to win the game. There is no excuse. (Unless you thought a draw play on third down would gain 16 yards, which if you did, you should immediately be fired and banned from coaching football in general.)
Wasn’t it Jim Mora that said, “HELLO, YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!!”
Apparently, while Mike Bobo was doing whatever the hell he does in the coaches box during the game (it certainly has nothing to do with the game of football), the Georgia offense failed to use Brandon Boykin on offense. I know he’s a defensive and special teams starter, but the first time he touched the ball on offense he went 80 yards for a touchdown.
I don’t think this takes a rocket scientist to figure out.
Now, I could go on and on about mistakes from last week, but I don’t want to hear more about it either. It’s time to move on.
