duh 101 Football Strategy



Would someone please help the confused (me) with these questions?  The answers may be obvious to you, but not so much for a couple (thousand?) others. These all have to do with the Georgia games versus BSU and now v So. Carolina.  Thank you for taking your time to clear this up. Feel free to argue. Loudest answers win. 

1) It seemed like Georgia muffed a chance to call a quick play when So Car. wasn't quite ready. Instead they stood up from their already assumed stance and looked to the sideline. What gives?  Did they not know what to do, or were there choices or just who calls the plays, anyway? 

2) I believe Kellen calls a lot of our plays based upon what he sees the defense doing (yes?)...because he seldom if ever looks to the sidelines for "Help!".  Will that change next year? Should we be looking forward to a QB and O-line popping up like underlings in cubicles and waiting for calls from....the Head Coach?  the Offensive Coordinator? The QB coach?  Who are these other teams looking at for assistance? 

3) Is that looking to the sidelines, or not in Kellen's case, a function of our talented QB or is that a coaching style? (sort of the same as question #2, but looking at coaching as opposed to on the field decisions)

4) Why didn't Coach Richt go for a (I'm going to edit my error here; brain fail) field goal long kickoff rather than do the iffy on-side kick? Is there a coaches guide book that says when to do what?  It seemed to me to be a poor decision based on odds, even before we knew the outcome.

Last but not least) Weren't there two # 6 players on defense for So. Carolina? Ingram and  Smith?  How are the refs supposed to know how far down the field a position player can run, if the numbers are the same? Or am I loonytunes?

Again, thanks for your clearing up my confusion. I'd like to say this is the last time I'll be confused, but then...not likely.
