    Default Why Georgia lost the SECCG - "It comes down to pass protection and fundamentals."

    You either win with fundamentals or you get beat with fundamentals. Georgia was reminded of this bitter lesson in the 2012 SEC Championship Game that saw them battle toe to toe with defending national champion Alabama. They valiantly drove down the field in the last minute, only to see the clock run out because of a tipped pass in an awful and surreal ending for the stunned Bulldogs, who expected to be able to see Aaron Murray throw two plays into the end zone with the ball at the 8-yard line and 15 seconds left (Chris Brown at Smart Football analyzes the clock logistics of the play here). The tipped pass by Alabama LB, C.J. Mosley, was seen as horrible luck, but really the play was preventable with proper fundamentals from the RB position.



    Most young RBs have trouble getting on the field because of pass protection—not understanding the scheme of what to do and not being to execute it correctly. The game of football depends on the execution of all 11 players and a freshman RB made a poor play at the worst possible moment for the Bulldogs (one of many plays from the game that Georgia would like to change, not to pin the entire loss on one player). I will analyze the play by using the RB Pass Pro fundamentals that I got from a clinic talk by Tony Ball, the RB Coach (from 2006-2009) and now, WR Coach at Georgia, so you will get coached up with the same coaching points this player will be hearing as he watches this film with his coaches.

    Great breakdown by Coach Hoover...

    interesting... i think the mistake was trying to run a play at all. but i see what he's saying. a spike is the qb's best bet. they likely would have won could they have calmed down and came up with 2 good plays.

    This had a lot more to do with Georgia losing IMO:


    1st Downs 26 18
    Total Yards 512 394
    Passing 162 281
    Rushing 350 113
    Penalties 2-15 7-64
    _______Alabama/Georgia

    Isn't that called game management? What I read for this is that Bama QB has game management.
