4. No penalties for Georgia football
Another thing that makes Georgia football so special is its discipline. These Dawgs hate making mistakes, and thankfully they are one of the most disciplined teams in college football.
Georgia finished the game against Georgia Tech with zero penalties, which puts their average at 4.66 penalties a game. The Dawgs have 56 penalties on the season, which shows they are one of the least penalized groups in college football.
That discipline is a big reason Georgia has been so successful this year. You are what you preach, and Georgia football preaches perfection. This group strives to be the best they can be every week, and the coaching staff doesn’t have to coach them up to do so. They do it on their own because they know to be elite. It starts from within, not from their coaches.
Georgia didn’t have any silly penalties allowing Tech to sustain drives or anything like that. The Dawgs played hard-nosed football. Among the rest of the top seven teams in the College Football Playoff rankings, the Dawgs rank better than the other six in terms of average flags a game.
Head coach Kirby Smart continues to preach about how this team practices, and it seems like that high standard they set themselves is paying off and showing results on the football field.
