Well, this explains one low point against Buffalo:
Back up to Sept. 1, 2012, and you’ll find the puppy form of Jenkins. His immaturity still fresh, Jenkins would become the poster boy for what not to do in your first collegiate game in the Bulldogs’ season opener against Buffalo.
After a timeout, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham called for his nickel team to hit the field, meaning Jenkins was subbing in for defensive end Cornelius Washington. But when Grantham looked up, he noticed “a lot of space” next to his nose guard.
Perplexed, Grantham looked to his side and saw Jenkins standing next to him. Buffalo immediately ran a play before Grantham even had time to say anything to Jenkins.
“Of course they ran the ball right where he was supposed to be.” Grantham said laughing.
That would be laughing now.
Just another reason to be worried about the newbies this coming opening night.
