AP Photo/Paul AbellJarvis Jones was all over the field for Georgia in its victory over Missouri, disrupting the Tigers' offense at every turn.Some notes and observations after rewatching the TV broadcast of Georgia's 41-20 win at Missouri on Saturday night:
• Mark Richt said after the game that the play of the night might have been when Richard Samuel sniffed out a fake punt in the fourth quarter. After rewatching the game, I’m conviced Richt was correct -- despite the enormous plays Jarvis Jones made after Samuel's big stop.
I couldn’t believe they tried the play at the time and I’m still mystified by the decision. My best guess is that Missouri coach Gary Pinkel was feeling a bit desperate because his defense was having so much trouble slowing down a Georgia offense that had scored touchdowns on three of the previous four possessions. But Missouri was still fully in the game, moving the ball well overall and didn’t need to take such a big risk. The Tigers were down only 24-20 at the time.
