"It's an execution issue down there," Richt said. "The plays that we're calling are fine. The plays have a great chance of success. Guys are just not making the plays at that time. The thing about the red zone is things happen a little bit faster, but you still have to make the play."
The Bulldogs are sixth in the SEC in red zone offense, scoring 80 percent of the time they get inside their opponent's 20-yard line. However, their touchdown percentage isn't as good.
Georgia has scored 13 touchdowns in 25 chances, and that 52 percent rate ranks ninth among conference teams. Tennessee leads the SEC with a touchdown on 74 percent of its red zone tries.
"If we had 60 percent touchdowns, I'd be fired up," Richt said.
Junior tailback Danny Ware doesn't blame play-calling but said after the Vanderbilt game that he doesn't know what the problem is.
"I can't really coach it up," he said. "I just know we have to do something."
