Commings opined that there was a motivation gap between last year and this year.
“I think last year people didn’t expect much from us. I guess that made us want to come out and play harder,” he said. “This year we started out, what, top five, I don’t know what it was. But we started out higher, and then I guess people were like, ‘All right, we’re good.’ I guess people felt like we didn’t have much to prove.”
Good Lord. Over the past half-dozen years, I’ve honestly lost count of the number of times I’ve heard a Georgia player express himself in similar fashion. At some point in time, you’d think they’d figure it out.
Maybe they need a shrink instead of a special teams coach.
