At least we know Mark Richt is seeing the same thing we are.
… Coach Mark Richt said he feels like his defense is “vulnerable” against passes through the middle. So far, it’s only cost the Bulldogs one game, but this is not the weekend they can afford to have similar issues in.

Next to Todd Gurley, the biggest key to Georgia’s success is a pass rush. But there’s a sense that the staff isn’t all in on that.
This team has the pass-rushers in Jenkins and Leonard Floyd to make life miserable for quarterbacks, but you can tell that there’s been some hesitation to let them loose more because of some weaknesses in the secondary. But Georgia’s defense looked so good against Tennessee when it brought the pressure.
They’ve got to go after Mauk this week.
