This is Georgia special teams play, 2013 edition, in an effing nutshell:
Davis, a sophomore, said his emphasis has been securing the football on punts after some flubbed returns last season. Asked if he ever really felt comfortable returning punts last year, Davis replied, “Not really.”
“It’s really my fault,” Davis said. “I never blame anybody. I take full responsibility. I’m the one who got back there and dropped the ball. I didn’t look it in. Going back there and just doing too much and not letting it happen naturally is what caused me to do all that. But this year I’ve been taking a lot more focus on looking it all the way in and securing the ball before I do anything.”
It’s nice that you take full responsibility, Reggie, but there’s a coach or two who ought to share with you. It’s inexcusable to keep putting a kid out there who’s lacking proper fundamentals and knows it.
