I agree with you. I was just trying to say that we don't go from a traditional passing offense to a speed option offense with our 1st and 2nd string guys. I'm flabbergasted that Curbee didn't plan for both, making the same mistake he made in January. I'll let him slide on the January one, but this game had all signs that Hurts would play in some way, shape, or form.
Makes you wonder if Tua is doing something that is keying the play call that UGA has pickup on?
When Jalen took over Locks was on the phone with him asking what calls he liked to run during practice, what he felt comfortable with running Saturday, and that's the direction they went. The play calls weren't the same. The offense being productive remained the same. What we saw out of Jalen we could have seen from a healthy Tua. However, based on what Locks has said, the calls/plan were not the same.
Biggest difference I saw was using roll out with Hurts and the called QB draws. I think there are definitely 2 sets of plays depending on which QB is in the game. That is not a bad thing IMO
That's not really true...
I'm pretty sure Bama's previous possession was a 16-play drive. So yes, there was a discrepancy in total plays, but the UGA defense could have been gassed at that juncture. Honestly, that is the only rationale I can imagine to justify Kirby's call. Just utterly insane on a 4th and 11.
