UGA’s Grantham Knows His Defense Will Have To Be Better Against MU’s Franklin

Last weekend, Buffalo quarterback Alex Zordich completed 14 of 24 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown against Georgia.  But when the Dawgs’ pass rush got to him, he also managed to shake free for an additional 83 yards on 14 carries and one more score.

UGA still won the game 45-23.

This week, Georgia’s defense will face a stiffer test from an even better dual-threat quarterback in Missouri’s James Franklin.  Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham says he knows what last week’s issues were and how to correct them:


“Any time you have split-safety coverage and you’re rushing four guys, there are six gaps for four guys, so it’s critical that you collapse those pockets.  When you collapse the pocket outside in, you constrict that area.  But if you create a seam in there, a guy can get out and make some yards, because you’ve got vertical separation between the rush going one way and the receivers moving down the field.

We’ve addressed it with the players as far as what they need to do, and we will continue to work to make sure that doesn’t happen.”


Allowing Franklin to scamper free when rushers leave an open seam could mean the difference in tomorrow’s contest.  For the sake of Grantham and Georgia, he’d better hope his players were paying attention in the film room this week.
