The Georgia Bulldogs offense has been one of the best in the country this season even with a new quarterback and offensive coordinator. However, in the biggest game of the year, the coordinator seems to be letting the quarterback down, and Georgia fans are not happy about it.
Mike Bobo took play-calling responsibilities over for the Bulldogs with the departure of Todd Monken, and Bobo has been anything but a fan favorite during his time as OC. The frustrations have ramped up in the SEC Championship game with Georgia trailing Alabama 20-17 in the fourth quarter.
Carson Beck is 18-25 for 200 yards, and has been throwing to injured receivers, Brock Bowers and Ladd McConkey, all game long. Still, there haven’t been enough throws from the junior quarterback. The Bulldogs have only run the ball for 61 yards on 25 attempts, an average of 2.44 yards per carry.
At least in the eyes of many Georgia fans, Bobo has been the biggest reason that the Bulldogs are behind and in danger of missing the College Football Playoff.
It didn’t appear that halftime changed the mindset of the play-caller, but the Bulldogs did bring the game closer, mostly because of a dynamic punt return from Anthony Evans III.
Even if Alabama scores again, this game will be close, and Georgia fans just have to hope that the players, not the coaching staff, or the officials, are the ones that decide the outcome.
