    Copeland is breaking out at the perfect time...
    He adds another player for the Dawgs to try to cover, along with Pitt's, Swain, Jefferson, Cleveland, etc.

    Georgia doesn't have the DBs to cover them all.. theirDBs are just not very good this year. .and, our O-line, however doubted, has protected Trask extremely well ...

    The naysayers can bitch about our O-line all they want...but, they've done an admirable job at allowing our QB to rack up the numbers,..(and three 75+yard TD RUNS ain't too shabby, either)

    Man was that an impactful miss on the Alex Leatherwood sweepstakes.

    Pointless to lament but yeah...imagine him along with either Taylor staying one more year or the Reese transfer going through. Any decent run game makes this offense nearly impossible to stop given our current passing game

    Yes. And isn’t it great to have an offense again? No longer having to watch our defense dominate to exhaustion, praying for just a few good drives from a weak O....I’m loving this CDM era!

    Even last years offense combined with nearly every defense from the champ/mac years is in strong contention for a title. 2012 was one of the most wasted defenses in college football history given the discrepancy in offense amd defense

    I like it better if he looks to be burning a corner.

    Ran the ball a lot in high school, mostly from the wildcat but also lined up at RB. Looks very natural at the position.

    He's very physical and plays taller than he's listed. Appears to have more length than height. Also a great leaper. Regarding the Toney comparisons, he's more versatile in this offense and not limited to the slot. He can back up any of the WR spots. Not so sure about H-back unless they have special plays for him there.

    Congrats to Copeland! I was really happy to see him make a couple catches in traffic last week - he'd struggled to reel those in previously.

    I guess what I said was more a question of if we might not have seen some things past few games but have schemed earlier that CDM intends to throw at georgia. I'm really hoping to see a lot of "Mullen called a great game" type posts after that game. What we do now is fine. It's decent. It works reasonably well. Mullen and the team are highly thought of in intelligent and analytical football circles. But there was a magic to the type of plays Mullen called back in the day. Maybe it's that he likes to move the ball in a traditional fashion then call the right shots in the RZ. One of the plays he called inside the 10 against SC was just money.
