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.

Can we wish ill will for Tennessee injuries after the way the hillbillies reacted after Chubb’s injury on their cow pasture turf?
Nah, no need to stoop to their level. I’d rather we whip those orange clad clowns while they’re at full strength.
Agree, both TN and FU are among my least favorite fan bases but I can never hope, or celebrate, an injury to an athlete. I don’t even like them having an excuse when we take them down.
Besides the one 5* DE, the Gators are mostly 3* with a few 4* on defense now. If they can keep up their recent defensive reputation this year, I’ll slow clap them when the season is over.
They normally have a few cupcakes to start the season and build confidence, not so this year. If the wheels come off in the Michigan game, UT two weeks later will be a “backs against the wall” game.
I don’t expect much from the Gators against Michigan. You know Harbaugh is licking his chops at beating up a “name” SEC school and will lay the wood to them if he’s able to. How that game affects the Gators through the rest of the season is anyone’s guess.
Yeah, I think UM comes out with a bigger chip on their shoulder than the Gators. The quotes I’ve been reading from younger members of the Gator D have been about maintaining the standard set, but to me it came across like they were speaking a given. My guess is UM wins comfortably, but WTFKs.
