Faculty Soccer Information lists UGA soccer’s keys to the 2021 CFB season
Expectations for the Bulldogs continue to grow as we near the Clemson kick-off in Charlotte. One big reason is quarterback JT Daniels, who went undefeated as a starter last season and put up big numbers. Daniels threw 1,231 yards (67.3%) and 10 touchdowns with just two interceptions in just four games.
College Football News’ Pete Fiutak recently listed Georgia’s keys to success for the 2021 college football season, and the first key has a lot to do with Daniels.
Georgia Bulldogs Biggest Key: Offense
Georgia, you know that downfield pass thing you spotted at JT Daniels …
Georgia went 17 games in a row without an average of ten yards per pass. Daniels stepped in and boom. Offense averaged well over ten yards per throw in three of the last four games, with the only outlier winning a layup win against South Carolina when the floor game rumbled well over 300 yards.
The running game is terrific, the defense outstanding and the stones are there – even if George Pickens is injured – to push the ball further down.
Open it up and good things will happen.
Many of the Bulldogs’ best offensive weapons joined Daniels in California for offseason workouts, which should give continuity to an offensive that is still new to some. Offensive coordinator Todd Monken is entering his sophomore year after a bumpy first season. The players didn’t benefit from spring football and summer training in 2020, but the schedule is back to normal this year and Dawgs will have all opportunities to get reps.
This year Georgia added another threat to LSU transfer Arik Gilbert, who will compete on wide receiver and mitigate the blow of losing George Pickens to a cruciate ligament rupture.
The second key is defending Georgia….
