Earlier this week, after watching film of Georgia against Buffalo, Missouri defensive end Sheldon Richardson told reporters that he believed that Georgia's brand of football was "old man football." While I enjoy Georgia waddling through games just as much as anyone, is Richardson's claim accurate? Do the Bulldogs play boring, prone-to-induce-naps football within their team and fanbase?
There's only one way to find out. Let's go to the tape of Saturday's win over Buffalo.
Early in the first quarter, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham started yelling at some Buffalo players to get off his lawn.
Later that quarter, Grantham got upset when a cloud ruined a perfectly blue sky over Athens.
Mark Richt, seen here working in a nap just before halftime.
Just before the third quarter started, Richt ran by the post office to buy stamps, mail one letter, and ask about shipping costs for a shoebox.
Then he stopped by the bank to check his balance and withdraw $7.83 for expenses.
In the fourth quarter, when Georgia started to pull away, Richt took some time to look over his tomato garden.
And as the game wound down, Mike Bobo eagerly waited for the paper to arrive.
So, after careful examination of the film, it appears that Richardson may have a point. There's quite a bit of old man stuff going on during Georgia games, but to their credit, they manage to do those AND play a football game. We'll find out more when Georgia travels to Missouri this Saturday.
