On the pass catching side, however, Richt always sticks to his guns with the old school split end, tight end, and flanker. Aaron Murray has found four different receivers around thirty times this season in freshman Malcolm Mitchell, freshman Michael Bennett, junior sensation Orson Charles (TE), and crusty old Tavarres King. In fact, since 2007, the dogs have had at least three guys with 20 receptions on the season.
Sadly, the dogs are one of those schools that doesn't really care about fans manipulating their play-by-play logs for blogging purposes so I can't really surmise too much more from their stats. I think the big thing we need to look at with regards to Georgie is their perceived strength versus their actual strength of schedule. Their 9 game winning streak has come at the expense of Coastal Carolina, 6-5 Florida, 5-6 Vandy, 5-6 Tennessee, 4-7 Kentucky, 5-6 Mississippi State, 2-9 Ole Miss, 4-7 New Mexico State, and pay-for-play 7-4 Auburn. I would be disappointed if Tech didn't go 9-0 against that band of misfits.
I'm taking Tech. To Hell with Georgie. The day I pick the dogs in anything is the day Paul Johnson stops running the triple option. Tech wins 30-24. What do you think happens?
