The first bar we went to last night had big screen TVs, but no game. The second bar we hit had the game, but no big screen TVs. We stayed there. (The cold Fat Tire on draft may have entered into our decision.)
The detailed observations are probably a little lacking as a result, but here are a few things, anyway:
- The Dawgs only had one long scoring drive on the night – the 7-play, 70-yarder which opened the second half – but it was huge.
- The key to Georgia’s passing game in the second half: find A.J. Green. The key to Kentucky’s passing game in the second half: find Vance Cuff. Both were equally effective.
- Monster game from Justin Houston, but the pass rush let Hartline step up in the pocket a little too much.
- Ho hum, another Brandon Boykin 100-yard kickoff return.
- Three fumble recoveries in one game?
- And five Washaun Ealey rushing TDs in one game?
- Another excellent game from Drew Butler. His first punt set up Georgia’s fourth TD in the first half after the UK fumble.
- Aside from the turnovers, the other key to the game was run blocking. Georgia’s o-line did. Kentucky’s o-line didn’t.
