Georgia was forced to rely on a silent cadence against Clemson’s home crowd, which played into the pass protection problems some.I'm willing to give the defense a pass due to youth. What is the reasoning behind this for the offensive line's porous play? It isn't like Clemson's fans being loud snuck up on us. And the silent count didn't account for the poor middle of the line run blocking or holds.
While it is easy to just simply say it's the crowd, at some point you have to look in the mirror and assess if you are doing what it takes to communicate to your charges what you want accomplished. Or go about a different way of doing things. Loud stadiums might be hard to replicate in practice, but learning to function as a group unit isn't.
As a position group, I think the offensive line over performed last season. That was awesome and certainly buys Friend lots of credit with his coaches and the fan base. He's got his work cut out for him to make this group
