ATHENS — Faces, numbers, names and alignments must change in the Georgia offensive, but the philosophy doesn’t figure to be too much different, if at all.

Former Bulldogs first-team All-SEC quarterback D.J. Shockley expects Kirby Smart to maintain the same offensive identity, even if he has to go about it a different way.

“Coach (Mike) Bobo was my quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator, and knowing him and Kirby the way I do, they want to have the effect of, when we want to run the football, we want to be physical and be downhill,” Shockley said during a Sirius XM radio interview earlier this spring.

“That’s one of the things Kirby has continued to do in recruiting big, physical offensive linemen and big, physical backs.”

Former offensive coordinator Todd Monken devised a high-percentage pass scheme featuring many short throws to backs and tight ends last season, the better to play to the strengths of mobile QB Stetson Bennett.
