Dawgs need a nearly perfect game to stem the Tide

Is Mark Richt's team ready to take the next big step? (Brant Sanderlin / AJC)

Is Mark Richt's team ready to take the next big step? (Brant Sanderlin / AJC)

On paper, Georgia and Alabama are remarkably similar and match up pretty well coming into Saturday’s SEC Championship game at the Georgia Dome.

Both teams utilize pro-style offenses that are led by experienced quarterbacks. Aaron Murray leads the nation in pass efficiency with a rating of 177.15. while Alabama’s A.J. McCarron is second at 176.26. Both offenses feature productive tailback tandems. Both teams have lost a couple of top receivers to injury this season (though the Dogs’ receiving corps looks a bit less depleted than the Tide’s). The teams average scoring about the same number of points per game. They both run 3-4 defenses. Alabama’s ranks higher nationally, though Georgia’s has come on strong in the past month and has more NFL-caliber personnel.

But while Nick Saban’s team is no longer looking invincible after a close call against LSU and a loss to Johnny Football, the Tide is rightfully favored by 7 points. As Mark Richt noted earlier this week, amid all the similarities between the two teams, there’s one key difference: “The one thing they’ve done is they’ve been national champions and we’ve not. They’ve been SEC champions and we’ve not during the time frame of these kids careers.”

So when my wife asked me the other night for an honest appraisal of Georgia’s chances of winning the game, I told her a bit less than 50/50 odds. About 45 percent.

That was based on Munsonesque anything-that-can-go-wrong-probably-will skepticism that the Dogs will be able to put together the nearly perfect game that will be needed to beat Bama.

However, if I were betting man (which I’m not), I think I’d put my money down on Georgia. Not just taking the points, but to win.

Because I get the feeling that nearly perfect game might not be all that far from this team’s reach.

What will it take? Blawg readers discussed that here Thursday, and my thinking runs much along the same lines: The play of the offensive line and the QB will be key for Georgia.

But there are other factors that need to fall into place. The Dogs need to establish some semblance of a running game to keep the pass rush off Murray. If they do that, I think Alabama’s pass defense is suspect. Murray is no Johnny Football, but he is a better QB than LSU’s Zach Mettenberger, who had quite a bit of success against the Tide (although it should be noted LSU has a better OL than Georgia’s).

If it’s a shootout, McCarron is a fine quarterback, but I don’t think he equals Murray at his best.

As we saw in the Texas A&M game, Bama doesn’t do as well when it’s playing from behind, so the Dogs need to hit the Tide hard and fast in this game and hopefully get out ahead. That will force Bama to throw the ball more than they like and make their big backs less of a factor.

That Bama running game is formidable, but overall I think Georgia’s defense matches up well with Alabama’s offense if the Dogs continue to play up to their potential like the past five weeks.

However, Georgia absolutely can’t afford any turnovers or giving up any big plays in special teams, which is what killed them against LSU last year. Rather, the Dogs need to be the ones with the take-aways. That’s where Jarvis Jones and Bacarri Rambo figure into the picture.

As my son noted the other day, in so many games this year the Georgia defense has been able to turn the momentum back by forcing key turnovers. It happened against Florida (obviously, with six) but also Tennessee, Ole Miss and even Tech. The Jackets were driving on their first possession and about to score when Rambo stripped the ball away.

Without forcing timely turnovers, this team probably wouldn’t be playing in the Dome.

Also, the Dogs need to sustain all the incremental gains they’ve made in special teams this season. In last year’s SEC Championship it was giving up big returns that killed them. The margin for error will be extremely tight in this game, so momentary lapses due to “poor communication” and mistakes like missed kicks could be killers.

Will Aaron Murray finally get his big breakout game in the national spotlight? (Associated Press)

Ultimately, though, it comes back to the quarterbacks. Murray hasn’t performed at his best on the big stage in the past, but he did step up late in the Florida game and has built on that momentum since. He needs to keep it up. Unlike in Jacksonville, Georgia stands no chance of winning this one if he throws three picks.

If it’s a close game that goes down to the wire, the coaching advantage is probably Alabama’s, but Georgia has the more quick-strike capability.

Let’s go with Georgia in an upset.

Now, let’s get to some of this week’s Junkyard Mail …

Brad Crown writes: I know the plan is for Hutson Mason to redshirt this season, but what happens if Aaron Murray goes down with an injury against Alabama? Or if the Dawgs get to the BCS game and Murray gets hurt? Would Mark Richt pull the redshirt off Mason and burn a season with a major game on the line?

He would. Richt said this week on his “Bulldog Hotline” radio show that if the outcome of the game was on the line and Murray got hurt and was “out for the rest of the game or the rest of the season” then he wouldn’t hesitate to play Mason. And, he added, he thought Mason would be “willing to jump in and help us win that game because it does mean so much.”

Michael Hawkins writes: Do you know if there will be a Dawg Walk Saturday, and if so when?

The UGA Sports Communications folks say there will be no Dawg Walk this week because at the Georgia Dome the buses drop off the team about two hours before kickoff in a secure area where the fans aren’t allowed.

Herschel Walker is taking a second stab at the Athens restaurant business. (Associated Press)

Howard Quinn writes: When we heard this week that Herschel Walker is opening up a pub in downtown Athens this winter, I mentioned to a friend that I thought this would be his second time owning an eatery in the Classic City. Didn’t he have some sort of fast-food restaurant in Athens once before?

He did indeed. Walker was the owner of a location of D’Lites of America at the Beechwood shopping center in Athens back in the mid-1980s. A popular item on the menu was the No. 34 Burger. D’Lites was an Atlanta-based fast-food chain that marketed itself as serving “healthier” food. Unfortunately, America wasn’t quite ready for that concept yet and the chain went out of business in 1987 after four years. In ensuing years, Walker has continued to be involved in the supply side of the food industry. And now he’s part of a group opening Herschel’s Famous 34 Pub & Grill at 320 E. Clayton St. in downtown Athens, probably in late January, the Athens Banner-Herald reports. The paper says the restaurant will feature a half dozen 60-inch TVs, complimentary wireless Internet and table-side tablets featuring messages from Walker and highlights of his football, bobsledding and martial arts experiences. The menu will run the gamut, with steaks, burgers, signature sandwiches, oysters, crab legs, shrimp, healthy selections and salads made fresh with local produce, according to the paper. The food will come from Renaissance Man Food Services, Walker’s Savannah-based company. Among the signature items will be Doritos-crusted barbecue wings and the place will feature 34 craft beers. Sounds like a new Sunday lunch option for the King brothers!

In reference to a blog I wrote earlier this week in which I mentioned Will Muschamp’s declaration that his team is “sexy,” Claire in Milledgeville writes: What exactly makes the Gators “sexy”? I’m clearly not getting something here.

It started as something of a joke during Muschamp’s Nov. 19 news conference. After his Gators’ less than impressive win over Jacksonville State, Muschamp noted that it was still a win, even if it wasn’t a sexy win. Then, he added, “My wife told me I was sexy after the game. She said, ‘We don’t win sexy, but you’re sexy.’ That’s a positive. There’s something good in that, I guess. She was kidding.” Muschamp returned to the theme last week after Florida beat FSU, saying that was a “really sexy win” and that the Gators were a “sexy team.” He added: “I was going to come in with my shirt off, but … the players did not want me to do that.” Thank goodness.

Ben writes: In reference to your recent blog post, why do you think the Bulldogs are so out of favor with the national media, mainly ESPN? Georgia has a good tradition, produces notable NFL players and has often been a top-10 program under Richt. What’s not to like? Is it simply Georgia’s tendency to flop in big games? Or is it something else?

I think it’s mainly getting blown out in hugely hyped games like the one against Alabama in 2008 and this year against South Carolina. But I believe Richt’s low-key good-guy persona and Georgia’s lack of any championships since 2005 also are part of it. One thing’s for sure: A win over Bama will bring lots of folks from the national sports media clambering aboard the Bulldog bandwagon.

Jim P. writes: I’m curious, with the playoffs approaching, might it be better for the SEC to drop its championship game? Could you imagine this year, if there were a playoff, that the SEC winner would still have to play in a semifinal AFTER #2 played #3 in the SEC Championship game? Is there an NCAA rule that mandates a conference championship game for conferences with at least 12 teams? Or can the SEC and others decide for themselves whether to keep a conference championship game? The money and exposure it brings is astronomical, but this can become too much, even for powerful SEC teams, to overcome in future playoffs with similar situations of this year.

My understanding is that NCAA Rule 17.9.5.2 allows conferences that have at least 12 members to field a title game, but it doesn’t mandate that they must. And you’re correct that in the future teams that don’t have to play a championship game might have at least a perceived advantage. Even this year, Notre Dame is in the BCS game without having to survive such a showdown. However, the money is too tempting for any conference with that many members not to stage a championship game. For the 2011-12 fiscal year, the SEC distributed approximately $241.5 million in revenue sharing to the 12 teams that were in the conference at the time, and $15.3 million of that came from the SEC Football Championship. I don’t see them giving that money up, do you?

LSU played a sloppy game against Alabama.

1 for 3 on field goals.

7 penalties to Alabama’s 1 (ref’s wern’t exactly fair)

50% of 3rd down conversion.

And only averaged about 2 yards per rush.

But Alabama barely beat LSU.

If you would have told me Murray would commit 3 turnovers against Florida, and Georgia would still win every quarter, who would have believed it? Murray played his worst game of the year, and Georgia beat Florida 17 to 9.

Murray played outstanding, near perfect against Auburn in 2010, 4 td’s, 0 interceptions, and Georgia lost.

Proves Murray is not the key to the game.

Not about being perfect on offense.

Let’s look at last 6 losses.

Georgia has given up at least 30 points in 5 out of the last 6 losses. Can’t win that way.

Comes down to defense and special teams defense, can Georgia force turnovers and get stops in the red zone? Can the special teams defense not give up big plays? Can Georgia hold Alabama under 25 points?

I thought we matched up nicely against SC, and that UF was playing great football coming into Jax. I think I will just watch. However, the big keys for me are if our O line can block Bama. Can our D slow down Bama’s running game, and mistakes. Will we get a bunch of dumb penalties for mouth running and stupid hits. Then the perennial #1 biggie–turnovers. If we do well in those areas, I think we win. If Bama dominates them, it could take some help from the object of the Rabbi’s prayer! Win or lose, this is a great bunch of Dawgs!

Saban is worth 3 – 10 point advantage against other coach in the country. Any objective observer knows that. If Murray is “on” and UGA holds onto the ball, we have a 50/50 chance. Otherwise the Saban System wins.

You would have thought it would take a perfect game to beat Florida in 2012, Florida did beat 4 teams tanked in the top 13.

But it didn’t take a perfect game. Murray played his worst game of 2012. Threw 3 interceptions. Only completed 40% of his passes.

But, the defense showed up, FINALLY, in a big game against a ranked team.

DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS.

PLAYMAKERS ON DEFENSE WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS.

One difference is in coaching.

At this stage of both careers, Saban had 3 teams that finished in the top 10, and had won 1 National Championship. switching teams 3 times to find the right set up for winning.That’s Saban’s first 12 seasons.

Richt, after 12 seasons, already has 6 top 10 finishes, could be 7, and might have his first National Championship if Richt beats Saban and Notre Dame.

richt also did it the hard way, staying at the same school, taking over a program that hadn’t won an SEC title in over 20 years.

So, if Georgia wins the next two, Richt’s pretty far ahead of where Saban was after 12 seasons.

Richt also has a higher career win % than Saban. And only 1 losing season, where Saban has a whole bunch of losing seasons.

Saban has never repeated as National Champs. No one does in the SEC except maybe every 35 years or so.

Coaching edge: Georgia

I think it comes down to the Oline and turnovers. UGA plays sky high and also pretty dang bad at times. You Bama is going to play either good or great. They don’t have many, if any, lulls. If UGA is sky high, we win. If it’s anything less, we lose. Gurshell has GOT to be able to run the ball. I say steer away from between the tackles and get the boys out in space. Bama’s defensive front is too good. Just dink and dunk down the field if that’s what it takes, then go for the home run when it’s there. I’m feeling a couple of interseptions of Murray, but I hope I’m wrong. The D has got to plug the middle and seal off the ends. You know that Bama is going to try and man handle us on the line. I just hope we don’t lay an egg like we did in Columbia. UGA’s best is better than Bama’s best, but Bama plays more consistantly. Just my take…..

I didn’t think the dawgs would beat FL but they did. Thank the D for that and if GA has a chance of beating AL the dawgs D will have to turn in another stellar performance. AM didn’t have a good game vs FL nor SC. He has proven (or ghood defenses have proven) that if they rattle him under pressure he’ll make costly errors and turn the ball over. He cannot do that vs AL no matter what. Regardless of the pressure on him he can’t cost the dawgs this game like he das done before. he’ll need a fantastic effort from his OL which many believe is overmatched by the AL D front 7. Overall, the dawgs are underdawgs to a more polished team. They’ll have to play the game of their lives and hope their coaches can work some magic in the gameplan w/points and winning the T/O battle. They’ll need some luck to win.

Georgia has progressively gotten better as the year has gone along and that is on both sides of the ball. The O-line coming into this year was a liability or at least that is what most of us thought, now it is one of our strengths. The Defense was considered to be our biggest and strongest asset but it took Williams calling them out to get them to playing as they are capable of playing. What amasses me is that these guys still haven’t peaked as a team. Hopefully tomorrow we will continue to see great strides in improvement in all phases of the game, offense, defense and special teams.

This is the biggest difference between Mark Richt and Nick Saban. Nick Saban is focused on the “process”, 1 “perfect” play at a time, “INPUTS” instead of “outputs”. Where Mark Richt is focused on “winning”, even an “ugly” win with one or two “ugly quarters”. This is why Saban’s teams struggle to win in Bowl games, while Richt’s team usually win Bowl games. AJ will try to play “perfect”, and he won’t. Murray will try and find a way to “win”, and he will, like he did against Florida. Richt “wins” more games as a percentage than Saban does. Some, like the Florida game, are “ugly wins” with a lot of “imperfect” moments, and “imperfect sections”. If Richt focuses on Miami, outcomes, and winning, and several plays or quarters ahead, and finding a way to win, he’ll outfox Saban, who is too narrow in his focus to think more than 1 play ahead. That’s why Alabama lost to Texas A & M in the biggest shocking loss of the 2012 season. Saban has no “big picture” capability. He’s not good at “strategy”.

Bill,

“If it’s a shootout, McCarron is a fine quarterback, but I don’t think he equals Murray at his best.”

somehow you sound like a UGA homer, are you are not related to UGA in some way?

McCarron thru his carrer lost 2 times to ranked team, Murray thru his career beats exactly 1 ranked team.

I guess Bill knows 2>1, so Murray is better than McCarron. Good Maths, Bill. It’s worth your education, wherever you get it.

I don’t think we should kid ourselves too much in terms of Ga’s run defense. I don’t see Ga stopping Alabama’s running game with much success between the 20s. The lineman for Alabama are just too good. However…in the red zone…Ga should cheat there safeties up and crowd the box. Ga’s corners have more than enough talent to play the receivers man to man. They can force Bama to have more fg attempts and less touchdowns and keep Bama’s score at or below 20-23 pts for the game. That would give Murray and co a chance.

The keys for Ga…..don’t give up any big plays on ST and defense. On offense…limit the turnovers and thus win the turnover battle. Do that…and Ga wins 27-23.

btw….this is the biggest game in Ga football history since Jan 1st 1983 when ranked #1…Ga played for the national championship. Nearly 30 years ago. That sugar bowl did not quite end the way we wanted. Ga did battle back though. Down 20-3 they rallied and closed the gap to 20-17 by early in the 4th qtr….only to trade touchdowns with a very good Penn St team. Ga fell short 27-23 that night. Very painful but they sure did battle. They were a great team and this 2012 version is pretty good also.
