NOTE: I didn't mention this initially, but the scrimmage involved the No. 1 offense going against the No. 2 defense, and vice versa. Sorry for any confusion.

thanks for the stats. Really disappointed about C. King's day, but it looks like Samuel did a pretty good job...he never seemed like the type to break out long runs.

Dontavius Jackson...ouch

Saying Samuel had a pretty good day is a HUGE understatement. 6 touches for 178 and 3 TDs. Rediculous.

David - Just curious, do you get to watch the scrimmage or do you get the stats from the school? Wouldn't it compromise the first game if reporters are allowed to watch the scrimmage plays? If you did get to watch it though, did Samuel look as good as his stats say he is?

David - Is this the 1 Offense against 2 Defense and vice versa?

3.5 Sacks. Thats what i like to hear. Also wondering about 1st team vs. 2nd team matchups and how much that would account for this and other stats both good and bad.

Doesn't matter what defense played what offense, it looks like the Defense got owned. I do agree, it would be good to get some of the stats with a little bit of context.

A couple of observations. on the offense. It seems like the freshmen were a huge part of the big plays and TD's. Plus TD's from the freshman TE is great news. I'd be willing to bet the O-line is gelling together quite well.

For the Defense, Where did the TO's go? And it seems like they gave up a LOT of big plays, which is never good. The Sacks from Dobbs though, is a very encouraging sign.

Lee said...

I'm also guessing from the absense of Marlon from the stat sheet that he did not play?

Lee said...

Yeah i really need to pay attention more, i completely skipped the first paragraph about those out with injuries and went straight to the stats. Fail.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Athens - Sophomore Richard Samuel, competing for Georgia's starting tailback job, put up big numbers in the Bulldogs' first full scrimmage of preseason camp today in Sanford Stadium.
Samuel ran for 108 yards and two touchowns on five carries, with a long run of 63 yards for a TD. He also caught a 70-yard touchdown pass.

Samuel entered the scrimmage No. 2 on Georgia's tailback depth chart, behind Caleb King. But King's numbers in the scrimmage paled by comparison to Samuel's. King had 5 carries for 18 yards, with a long run of 12 yards.

Samuel "ran the ball well," coach Mark Richt said afterward. "He definitely had more space to work with than any other back, there was no question about that, but he broke some tackles also. He finished some runs strong. He did have a fumble . . . so he's got to make sure that doesn't become a problem for him."

Richt did not declare immediate changes in the depth chart afterward, but indicated they could be forthcoming.

"We'll probably re-rack it and see where everybody is," he said. "Like I told them before we started, this is as close as we can get to a game. When we evaluate, we will put more on a scrimmage than any other grading system. It's as live as we can get, as real as we can get, so scrimmages mean a lot.

"But we do understand when one guy has got a lot of space and other guys don't. You just can't let the amount of yards [Samuel] got fool you, but he was impressive today. No doubt, he was impressive."

Richt said both King and Samuel ran with the Nos. 1 and 2 offenses, but mostly with the No. 1 offense, which went against the No. 2 defense.

"I think [King's] hamstring is bothering him a little bit," Richt said.
