Nobody’s ever accused Malcolm Mitchell of being tight-lipped. Turns out he can be pretty funny, too.
Yet several returning players have commented this month that complacency and entitlement may have accompanied the undeniable ability of last season’s defenders. The most notable to speak out was junior receiver Malcolm Mitchell, who was asked if this year’s veteran offense could experience a similar issue.
“I don’t think we’re in the same situation that we were in last year,” Mitchell said. “You had a bunch of seniors and a bunch of people who were worried about where they were going. Granted, we do have offensive linemen who might be in that place, but, as we know, offensive linemen won’t get as much attention as our defensive players did last year.
“I don’t think we’ll have that problem.”
Offensive linemen? Georgia’s offensive linemen? Sure, Malcolm.
