Can the Bulldogs' running game get on track?


Coming off the big win against the Clemson Tigers, the one unit that clearly shined was the defense. With Kirby Smart having a defensive background, it was no surprise that they were able to take over that game against a top-10 opponent.

Coming in to Week 2, most of the questions were about the offense and whether or not they could score enough points to put away University of Alabama-Birmingham early. The Bulldogs were just fine in the passing game with Stetson Bennett throwing for five touchdowns. The area that they struggled in was in the running game against an inferior opponent, which should have Bulldogs' fans concerned.

Chip Towers, of the AJC, joined The Jon Chuckery Show to talk about his level of concern about Georgia's running game.

"They are going to have to run the football better," Towers said. With the Bulldogs having South Carolina up next, they are going to have to figure out a way to have consistent success in the running game.

Smart has always held that part of the offense to a higher standard. Given who they are playing, there is no excuse for the Bulldogs to not have all the success that they want running the football.
