Shawn Williams speaks:
Georgia’s defense now has been back at full strength on the field for two games after safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree returned from suspension.
“I guess it took those guys a little while to get in game shape and game mode, but now I think there’s no excuses,” he said. “We’ve got to go out and get the job done.”
Meaning there were excuses before?
Speaking of which, this is about as lame as it gets.
Bobo mentioned last week on Georgia’s call-in show that the Bulldogs prepared during the gameweek with plenty of crowd noise, but may have overdone it.
“Going back talking as a staff maybe we did a little bit too much crowd noise and maybe shouldn’t do crowd noise until Thursday,” Bobo said. “We didn’t get to teach as much as we wanted to with all of the crowd noise.”
Well, at least they got the silent snap count routine honed so that Clowney could follow along.
Seriously, after all these years of playing in hostile environments, these guys still haven’t figured out how much practice time needs to be devoted to it? The mind, she is boggled by that.
None of that’s going to matter this week – not when Kentucky’s quarterback situation looks like this – but two things would be nice if Georgia’s defense does shut down the ‘Cats and the Dawgs romp. One would be that they don’t read too much into putting a hurt on the nation’s 116th-ranked team in total offense. The other would be that instead of wasting too much time worrying about the things they can’t control in Jacksonville, the staff actually sits down to formulate a game plan that goes after Florida.
