Georgia football fans should love offensive coordinator Todd Monken even more because he provides an offensive mind that fits perfectly with the culture head coach Kirby Smart needs in Athens.

After listening to his press conference from Fall Camp, it’s clear Monken is the offensive version of Smart. How can he build this offense to be successful? . He looks at the offense in such a unique way and knows that without success, wins do not come!

Monken thinks about that stuff like Smart thinks about this entire program, but also how he thought about the defense too. That evil genius, kind of nerdy love for football is why these two coaches mesh so well together.

While some may not quite understand why I believe Monken is an offensive version of Smart, it’s easy to see.

Georgia football has the offensive evil genius it needs to stay successful.

Monken knows it isn’t black and white when it comes to coaching football— Smart does too. He isn’t going to be too direct in certain answers because he knows that it doesn’t always work like that.

What he can control is what he will focus on improving and developing. Since Monken took over the offense, it’s been a night and day situation. Georgia is explosive, can throw the ball all over the field and has a coach who understands the right personnel choices.

Smart does the same thing with the defense — he knows how to get the most out of them along, and those defensive units under him are quite explosive.

The way he carried himself and answered the questions during his press conference showed that he is the right man for the job. Monken knows just how important that offense was in 2021 and how 2022 could see similar productivity out of that side of the ball.

However, no team is the same, so they have to find the right things to fix and mold. The questions he answered were clever and insightful.

He is a mastermind at what he does, then you throw in minds like Buster Faulkner and Mike Bobo on staff to help Monken get the right schemes together — it’s what Georgia desperately needed to get over that hump.

Monken helped the Dawgs get over the hump in two years under his offensive plan, with a former walk-on quarterback. Imagine what Year 3, 4, 5 and so-on will look like under him — eliteness.

Smart came to Georgia to get the Dawgs over the hump and he did it. Monken’s constant need to improve and find ways to make the Dawgs better is one of the reasons Georgia will see its offense match the level of eliteness as the defense.

Honestly, that offense is already doing that, but some fans don’t quite understand. Smart helped transform the defense with the help of Glenn Schumann, Dan Lanning, Will Muschamp, and other assistant coaches, and Monken has done it with the offensive course.

Monken is an interesting character, but he knows college football better than most people, so with the right resources, greatness will happen. Hopefully, those who don’t get this analogy of Monken is the offensive mind of Kirby Smart and is someone trusted to make the right game plans.

He constantly studies film and how to get these kids better — that’s dedication. Smart and Monken are cut from the same branch, and with the two of them on the team — it’ll be dangerous for the rest of the SEC and college football.
