2012 UGA football: John Theus, Kenarious Gates tipping plays with stance?

Georgia offensive linemen John Theus and Kenarious Gates sometimes give away whether the team is running a pass or run play simply with their stance at the line.

The Georgia Bulldogs might want to change a few patterns that can be picked up easily from their game film. Team Speed Kills examined the film of UGA and South Carolina and noticed that Georgia offensive tackles John Theus and Kenarious Gates could be tipping plays simply by the way they line up on a given play.

Theus and Gates on the line is something to pay attention to. Team Speed Kills noticed that when Theus (or both Theus and Gates) are in more of an upright two-point stance, UGA throws the ball far more often than not. If they saw it, then it's likely this hasn't gone unnoticed around the SEC.

The Bulldogs plummeted down the national rankings after Saturday's loss to the Gamecocks. Georgia went from No. 5 to 14 in the Associated Press poll, which can be attributed to a lot of things. For one, the Dawgs were never really competitive offensively. Quarterback Aaron Murray struggled to hit his targets, and overall, it was off day for the team.
