What really needs to be said about a game like yesterday? The best way I can sum it up is that Georgia was up 14-0 with more than 11 minutes still on the clock in the first quarter, having gained something like 120 yards, and having a time of possession under a minute.
Now that’s game control.
- The weather was great. It’s nice finally reaching the time of the year when sitting in the stands where the sun shines is an advantage.
- My sincerest kudos to whoever made the decision to dial down the volume on the PA system. Much obliged… and don’t change it back, please.
- Much younger crowd than usual, as you could probably guess. Cotton candy sales seemed to be booming. And they sold out of fried Oreos.
- Mason looked good on the deep throws, which was no surprise as CSU’s secondary put up no resistance. And while Ramsey is still feeling his way, it was encouraging to see that he’s learning how to put a touch on his throws. The interception looked like it was the result of a miscommunication between him and Williams.
- I tell you, Jonathan Rumph is going to go down as one of the bigger mysteries of this program over the last five years. He doesn’t play as much as we’d expect, but there are times when he’s in that he looks like a world beater.
- I wonder if the announcers made any comments about Chubb’s foot speed after he went untouched on that 83-yard jaunt.
- On defense, Pruitt elected to come out in that same base defense he sprung on Auburn, with Carter, Floyd and Jenkins all seeing the field together. It worked well again, too. The third stringers need to polish their containment skills, though.
- Special teams were marked by the second game this season without a Georgia punt. Charleston Southern’s punter, though… I can’t figure out if he was merely bad, or just weird. That being said, Georgia clearly couldn’t figure out what to do with him, so he was effective. Kinda.
- Quayvon Hicks has polished his fair catch skills nicely. And he may have shaken off the tackling attempts of every player on CSU’s defense on his way to the endzone on his touchdown run.
- Jack Loonam played, which was nice. So did Kyle Karempelis, much to the pleasure of his cheering section. And nobody was seriously hurt.
Now it’s on to Hate Week.
