“There’s going to be less possessions in this game then probably what they’re accustomed to,” Johnson said. “Although they play a lot the same way. When you run the ball as much as they do the game gets over quickly. It might be the fastest Georgia-Georgia Tech game ever.”
Georgia is running on 63.2 percent of its offensive plays, but coach Mark Richt isn’t necessarily counting on leaning as heavily on the run in the next few years.
“I think we’ll end up getting closer to the balance we’ve had in the past as far as the run-pass ratio and all,” he said. “I think we’ve got some good QBs coming in or moving up through the ranks and we think we’ll have the skill at receiver.”
He pointed out that Aaron Murray passed for more than 3,000 yards in all four of his seasons.
“But we’re not going to forget how to run the ball either,” he said.
