Georgia Southern vs. Georgia: John Jenkins thinks cut blocks should be illegal

Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE

The Bulldogs nose tackle has 30 tackles and nine quarterback hurries through 10 games in 2012.

In executing their triple option offense, the Georgia Southern Eagles employ the use of the cut block often. While Georgia nose tackle John Jenkins thinks they do so legally, he's not a fan of the style and thinks it should be an illegal way to block.

Speaking to Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph, Jenkins discussed the many different ways someone can use the cut block, and although he complimented Georgia Southern on their efficiency with the blocking style, he also made it clear that he thinks it should be illegal:

"I've read stories about people being cut a different way and they no longer can play football. And they were using football to feed their family."

The 8-2 Eagles have thrown the ball just 61 times in their 10 games, while they've run the ball an astounding 596 times. Of the 49 touchdowns scored by the Georgia Southern offense, 42 came on running plays. 25 of those rushing touchdowns came from the combination of Jerick McKinnon and Dominique Swope.

Through 10 games, Jenkins has recorded 30 tackles and nine quarterback hurries.
