Cover 4 on Georgia football: How can TCU pull off an upset tonight in the national championship?
DawgNation’s “Cover 4″ concept is a timely content piece on DawgNation.com.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- We are now less than 10 hours away from the national championship game on Monday night at SoFi Stadium.
We saw DawgNation representing well last night. With rampant reports of Georgia football fans calling the ‘Dawgs just about everywhere around the City of Angels.
The time feels ripe for another “Cover 4″ topic with the DawgNation team. And this point is maybe the one that will be on everyone’s mind until the game gets well underway tonight on ESPN.
These takes are designed to come out as quickly as the two opposing coaches drew laughs on Sunday morning during the final College Football Playoff Media Day session.
This “Cover 4″ topic is:
How could TCU pull the upset against Georgia?
Brandon Adams: “The HypnoToad magic”
Why: “That’s what TCU has called its penchant for pulling off late-game heroics. The Horned Frogs are 6-1 in one-score games this season. Conventional wisdom says that won’t last. Georgia fans hope that’s true.”
Mike Griffith: Turnovers
Why: “Simple as that. The Bulldogs have had at least two turnovers and been -2 in T/O ratio in their last 6 losses dating back to the Texas Sugar Bowl defeat. If Georgia doesn’t beat itself with interceptions or fumbles, this one belongs to the Bulldogs.”
Connor Riley: Max Duggan’s legs
Why: “Georgia couldn’t get CJ Stroud on the ground and that allowed him to carve up the Georgia defense. Duggan is a superior creator with his legs and won’t hesitate to scramble. When Georgia brings pressure, it has to get him on the ground.”
Jeff Sentell: Special teams and explosive plays
Why: “TCU has shown the nation’s No. 64 scoring defense giving up 26.4 points per game. That would rank ninth in the SEC. UGA has only allowed 14.8 points per game even after giving 71 points to LSU and Ohio State. The Horned Frogs will need a non-offensive touchdown and a few explosives in the passing game. The latter was how those two teams moved the ball on the ‘Dawgs of late. Big chunk shots. The gap between the teams must also be thinned in the turnover margin. TCU has big physical linebackers that must deny the run game.”
