TCU captain: Todd Monken’s shifty Georgia scheme and Brock Bowers’ talents keyed title game

MOBILE, Ala. — TCU’s game plan was sound: Limit Brock Bowers, stop the run and keep Stetson Bennett in the pocket.

But as Horned Frogs linebacker Dee Winters, Georgia offensive coordinator Todd Monken did just enough with shifts and motions to keep TCU crossed up and off balance in the Bulldogs’ 65-7 win.

“They didn’t come out with any trick plays, nothing that we hadn’t seen or that they hadn’t shown on film, (but) they just completed a bunch of passes against misalignments,” Winters told DawgNation at Senior Bowl Media Day this week.

“It was the motions that discombobulated our secondary and got them confused.”

Monken is noted for his ability to create mismatches with unique formations through motions and shifts.

Winters, a first-team All-Big 12 selection who had a key Pick-6 in TCU’s win over Michigan, shared that the UGA talent at tight end was a factor, too.
