Third-and-Grantham amusement aside, I can’t bring myself to get that worked up over the fearsome Florida pass rush, mainly because Grantham had a better defensive line at his disposal last season with Mississippi State and the Dawgs found a way to handle that.
On the other hand, what does cause me some concern is the field position game. Brian Fremeau’s current starting field position ratings have Florida ranked 14th and Georgia **scrolls down** ** scrolls down** **scrolls down some more** 89th. Yecch.
Now, if Georgia manages its fair share of explosive plays, the importance of that differential shrinks. But if Saturday turns out to be a pure grind-it-out affair, the cumulative effect of that could be problematic.
Then again, the Dawgs’ special teams could show up and make it a moot point. How ’bout it, fellas?
