Brandon Kublanow Snaps to It

ATHENS - Starting center Brandon Kublanow had a rough time with the shotgun snap when he first started working the position.

He found a new technique that worked better by “grabbing more of the nose of the ball,” Richt said,” that he controls better and doesn’t rotate as fast.

“Apparently he went on the Internet and looked at different ways of shotgun snapping it and somebody had some video on that technique and he started using it,” Richt said. “I became a believer in about two practices.”

Richt said he sleeps better now thinking about the shotgun snaps.

He said there was one shotgun snap in the scrimmage that got away (he didn’t say who snapped it) as well as a couple of fumbled snaps. A third snap, he thought, was picked up and thrown for completion.

“Anytime you fumble a snap you could lose a game because of it,” Richt said. “We’ve got to clean that up.”

There was also an operation issue on a missed field goal by Marshall Morgan, which had not been an issue this preseason, Richt said.

“It was a little bit of a low snap, a little bit of a bobble, trying to get the ball down,” Richt said. “The timing wasn’t just right.”

Morgan “has been kicking the ball very well,” Richt said.
