Georgia Richt Refused To Single Out The Dawgs’ Defense After Auburn Loss

gfx - they said itHaving slept on it Saturday night, Mark Richt had plenty of time to formulate a response to the sure-to-come questions about the job defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is doing.  As the prolific Chip Towers of The Atlanta Journal Constitution points outs, the Dawgs have given up 30 or more points seven times this season.  They’ve given up 40+ on three occasions, including Saturday’s 43-38 loss at Auburn.  A loss in which two Georgia defenders unintentionally batted an underthrown Hail Mary forward and into the hands of Auburn receiver Ricardo Louis for the game-losing score.

So when asked about Grantham and Georgia’s D, Richt had this to say yesterday:

 

“Here’s what I say: I say we’re a team here at Georgia and we’re going to keep coaching and keep trying to make improvements and corrections in everything we do and in all phases of the game…

The bottom line is at Georgia we’re a team and we win together and lose together.  We’re always watching film after every game to make sure we make corrections on offense, defense and special teams.”

 

Grantham was hired in 2010 to replace dismissed UGA defensive coordinator Willie Martinez.  Georgia’s 2009 defense under Martinez allowed 25.9 points and 339.4 yards per game.  This year, Grantham’s unit is allowing 30.2 points and 386.9 yards per game.

In fairness to Grantham, he’s having to play with an extremely young squad this year.  And defenses all across the SEC are giving up bigger numbers than in recent years (due in large part to hurry-up spread attacks).

But that won’t stop Bulldog fans from comparing one defense to the other.  Which is bad PR news for Grantham.

    I can write better than the average person (not that that is saying much these days) and I have strong opinions on various subjects. I don’t have experience as a journalist or technical writer, but what does a person need to start blogging and who pay…

    Good info

    I need to import about 50 of 458 posts from a blogspot blog into wordpress. If I use the plug in import tool, I am concerned that it will duplicate the posts that were already imported in a previous batch. Also the prior posts have been re-categorized.…
