Add the Flea Flicker call. With no running game, calling a flea flicker isn't going to fool anybody. To add insult to injury, it ended in an interception.

Good
I'll go with play calling first half-finally something different almost every play during that half. I was quite surprised and loving it. Kinda looked like me when I played video games. Reverses, misdirections, screens etc

Obviously Kmet

Demeanor- we finally didn't have the deer in the headlights or look scared coming out of the huddle.

Bad

crowd noise- hard to imitate that
to go with that, penalties. got to clean that up

3rd quarter play calling
to go with that, not a better design to follow up with what they knew Georgia was going to follow up with knowing they were using the middle of the field. outside shots too late in the game

injuries/suspensions - im tired of key guys being out for big games. if it's not the frozen 4, or weed, hidden guns, or just injuries. ND needs all there guys in there. It's just starting to bother me....

It is truly the one play I absolutely hate. Always have and always will. You are setting your QB up for disaster. Especially, for a fast defense knowing you have to pass and you can't run the ball to begin with. Not surprising anyone. I like the idea of a little trickery. Not just there...

This team desperately needs Jahmir smith and Jafar back at RB.

Good, put a scare into Georgia and had a chance to win at the end.

Bad, zero running game. And the third quarter was a disaster offensively.

Good-not going to lie, at 20-10 and them driving thought we'd go down 27-10 and then maybe 34-10 and the "narrative" of we can't compete would go on and who knows what happens to recruiting.

Recruits can see we definitely can compete and we are a few pieces away.

PS Man, when those Georgia "student" athletes did that stupid thing along the sideline (memories of the thugs on Miami turnover chain) after the pic, not going to lie, I wanted some of our guys to inflict some pain on those a.holes.

And Fromm was a bit classless after the game...not one word about ND who they squeaked by at the end. Contract to Smart who had some good things to say about us.

Glad I'm not the only one. I looked over at my wife and said that he sounds like an idiot. Not a fan of the arrogance.

I appreciated Kirby giving a little credit to ND. I dislike Georgia because I used to work with a bunch of fans, but when it comes to SEC schools, Georgia is one of the better schools.

Couple things... Benching the WR, do we know whether this is Kelly or school? Also, when BK didnt treat people the same, thigns went off the rails.

The dinking and dunking worked, it was an extension of their running game.. or really their only running game. The game plan was to limit possessions.


DBs played well and i dont think not turning their heads really costs them and turning their heads on some might have caused them to slow down... agree on everything else.

In the 3rd quarter, we ran 9 plays for a total of 9 yards. That's not a game plan that is working. It's not limiting possessions. We kept it close due to our defense, which played great despite our dink and dunk offense.

Oh i agree the 3rd quarter was a mess, with INT and 3 and outs, but the overall gameplan of using short passes as essentially your runs was fine.

The game was lost in the third with the offense putting the defense in a very bad spot.

If you think a game plan that produces nine of eleven drives that consist of only 30 yards or fewer a fine game plan, I don't know what to say. It's a ****** scheme with a horrendously soft offensive line full of 4 and 5 stars.
