“He’s got nerve. And you’ve gotta have nerve. And sometimes that nerve works against you.” – Then-head coach Mark Richt on McKenzie last year, after McKenzie’s 53-yard punt return touchdown proved the difference in the 20-13 win over Auburn. McKenzie was only in the game because Terry Godwin, who had been returning punts, was pulled from the role because he wasn’t doing a good enough job of yelling “Peter,” which was the signal for the other 10 players on punt return to get away from the loose ball. It’ll be interesting to see how the new coaching staff handles someone with so much upside – and volubility – in a key role.
If, by “interesting”, Seth means “the staff better damn sure figure out how to get the ball in McKenzie’s hands in the open field”, I’d say that’s about right.
