Nothing particularly profound, given the opposition. While Bill King thinks that Bulldog pride demands an epic beat down the likes of which we’ve never seen in the Richt era, I’d simply settle for (1) no injuries and (2) a record-setting day from Hutson Mason in relief.
But what I’d like to leave you with is this comment from Coach Lakatos, in response to a question from Seth Emerson:
SE: Is a lot of this learning schemes, learning the system?
SL: No, a lot of it’s understanding leverage, and where you’re supposed to come from to make plays. That’s one thing we always have to improve, is creating leverage on the opponent and maintaining leverage throughout the course of the play so we have a chance to make the play. When we get out of position, that’s when big plays happen.
I can’t figure out how profound that comment is supposed to be. Is he saying that nine games into the schedule, his DBs still haven’t figure where to line up and how to cover? That’s one helluva Martinez hangover.
I’m heading out to the game. Leave your comments below.
