Kirby Smart explains how Gus Malzahn’s offense has evolved

A former newspaper veteran, Keith Farner is a freelance reporter for Saturday Down South.

Georgia and Auburn are increasingly familiar with one another, and not just because of Kirby Smart’s history as an Alabama defensive coordinator. The teams are set to meet on Saturday for the third time in the last calendar year.

Smart has also seen Gus Malzahn’s offense change over the years, and said the run game is very similar, but depending on the quarterback, Malzahn uses different things.

“He has evolved the most in the passing game, the run game has stayed very similar, depending on the QB,” Smart said on the SEC coaches media teleconference.

Speaking of Auburn’s offense, Smart said the physical Tigers’ wide receivers take what the defense gives them.

“Gus always establishes the run, or at least tries to,” Smart said. “They are explosive in the passing game, they also commit to the run.”

Georgia’s secondary facing that unit is a work in progress, Smart said, like the rest of the team.

“(Deandre) Baker has been very consistent but we have a lot of young players back there,” he said.

Smart updated injured RB Zamir White’s recovery and said he’s doing well, and focused on his studies and rehab.

Smart credited offensive line coach Sam Pittman for the juggling offensive line positions because of injuries for much of the season.

“We have signed a number of athletic linemen,” Smart said. “It’s tough, we have some guys beat up and banged up. We try to get guys a lot of reps at different spots.”

Smart said his current crop of running backs didn’t run as much last season because of the the backs now in the NFL, but, “I saw it in practice, saw it in camp, they are doing a good job.”

so would this be a good time to do something different since Smart knows our playcard better than our team?

Somebody posted on reddit the other day in r/wde that UGA, LSU and Bama had all signed in between 27-31 offensive linemen each since 2013.  Auburn has signed 17.

Auburn OL signees from 2013-2016

Deon Mix- 0 career starts and left team
Braden Smith- 3 year starter and in NFL
Mike Horton- 2-year starter
Marquel Harrell- will be a 3-year starter
Tyler Carr- 0 career starts and left team
Bailey Sharp- 0 career starts
Kaleb Kim- 4 career starts
Prince Sammons- 0 career starts

8 HS OL signees in 4 years. 8! Every program should sign 15 over that stretch. 5 of those guys were in one class, meaning the 2013, 2014 and 2016 classes signed an avg of 1 OL each!. Ahhh. And spare me on Tega. We signed him as a DE and lucked into him growing into an SEC OT. 

Transfers like Golson, Dunn, Darius James and Driskoll have saved us from having the worst OL in the SEC for years.

Maybe we can ask Georgia or better yet Kentucky to borrow some. Apparently our school it's just so hard to recruit talent ...at least that's what I was told

If Gus is given the chance, he'll fix this...but at the neglect of 3 or 4 other important positions.

Bro-Hamm was 2017, right?

As for the transfers, I think he was only talking about the ones who contributed.
