Oklahoma Has A Lot Of Respect For The Georgia Offense

Some Oklahoma Sooners defensive players met with the media in Los Angeles on Thursday and had a chance to answer a few questions about the Georgia offense.

Sooners strong safety Steven Parker had only good things to say about Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm.

“He’s a gamer,” Parker said.

And unlike other past Georgia opponents, Parker refrained from saying Fromm can only throw a slant pass.

“He can put the ball where only his receivers can catch it,” said Parker. “He’s probably going to be handing the ball the majority of the time with [their] run game. But he can cut you off with the play-action pass. That’s what Georgia does very well.”

The Sooners referred to Georgia’s offense as underrated multiple times on Thursday, and defensive coordinator Mike Stoops added that he is most impressed by the offensive line.

“The biggest improvement I’ve seen is their offensive line, and they’ve been able to do [it] up front with those guys,” Stoops said. “And then giving those running backs a little bit of space. They don’t need much. Great players, you get them. They do a good job not letting you penetrate too much and giving those guys opportunities.”

However, the most underrated unit for Stoops: the wide receivers.

“They could stretch the field vertically,” Stoops said. “They get in and out of breaks extremely well. So they present 11 guys every time you step on the field.”
