What did Bobo Read in the Offseason?

While I am on a rant, doesn't the no-huddle actually use the advantage of quickly getting plays off to work.  Merely  rushing to the line, then taking 20 seconds to see a coach relay a play in is just spread huddle. For an alternative treatment, see Boise State v. Georgia, 3Q 14:55-11:01, Boise State: 11 PLAYS IN 3:54, TD. As a bonus, you lose the opportunity to make sure everyone is on the same page.  For the life of me, I can't fathom actually waiting to see what the defense is doing before calling a play, since, you know, you have the ball and should put the defense in the position of having to react to you, not the other way around. General Neyland would not approve.

What did Bobo read in the off season, Custer's treatise on fighting Native Americans in Montana territory?

The no huddle also puts a ton of pressure on the defense if drives aren't sustained. A power running game would have kept Boise off the field. All the hurry up spread did was give Boise more chances to score and wear down the defense. You have to think Grantham can't be happy with Bobo's offense.

Enough of blaming it on Bobo. Richt's the head coach and resident offensive genius in Athens. If Richt wasn't on board with the plan for the offense, it wouldn't be happening. So the next time any Georgia fan types or says "Bobo" when ranting about the spread, the shotgun, the hurry-up, or Crowell/Smith jersey-gate, you need to say "Richt". That's where the buck stops. He's running the show, Bobo may not be fixing things, but he's also not the guy giving the orders to break it.

@anon 2:30 - As long as Bobo is calling the plays, Bobo will be blamed regardless of what Richt says right now... unless Richt takes over play calling. However, in the end, it's Richt's butt in the hot seat so if Bobo keeps it hot, then Richt will get it in the end (all puns intended).

BTW: I hate it when people hide behind anonymous comments. If you stand by your statements and convictions, reveal yourself!
