When it comes to health issues, I don’t wish ill on any student-athlete, but in light of Georgia’s schedule, I thought I’d mention a couple of key hits.
- Notre Dame appears to be facing some depth issues on its defensive line. As the start of fall camp approaches, five of its eight defensive tackles have never played in a game.
- Meanwhile, Florida lost a starting safety who recorded 73 tackles last season with a blown Achilles tendon. Add to that a junior defensive back who announced his transfer from Florida yesterday, and it sounds like there are some experience issues brewing for the Gator defensive backfield.
No, those don’t translate into automatic wins for Georgia, but for once it’s news like this coming from other camps, instead of Athens.
