So if talent isn't the problem, what is?
Georgia is apparently loaded with talent right now. Among the best pro prospects at WR, two OL, a OLB, and P. According to Pro Football Weekly, we have more elite pro prospects than the rest of the SEC combined (Glenn, Green, Boling, Butler, and Houston for Georgia makes 4, the rest of the SEC had Marcel Dareus, Patrick Peterson, and Mike Pouncey). Argument aside (because having two OL on there when our OL was a major problem is begging for an argument), it's pretty clear that this year's 6-6 record wasn't because of a lack of talent. It's 4 juniors and a senior, so it's not that our talent is too young either. It isn't a freshman QB, because Aaron Murray had a terrific season and was significantly better than 2009's 5th year senior starter. Maybe it was personnel on defense ill suited right now for the 3-4 (specifically an undersized DL that failed miserably to control the line of scrimmage), and the staff is targetting a 3-4 Nose in JUCO John Jenkins that hopefully is an immediate fix there.
So if it's not talent, and it's not youth, what could possibly be the problem? We're stumped too, Coach.
