It seems to me that this is a very good way for Georgia to approach the Sugar Bowl.
But Ledbetter is also fired up about another opportunity to play for the program he loves and the momentum it can provide heading into 2019.
“They’re really big, man,” Ledbetter said. “I know I’m going to get in the game and play a lot, but it’s really the start to a new season. You get the younger guys you’ve been developing into the games to see how they act in in-game situations. You put them in crunch- time situations just to see how they react and how they go. That’s what it’s about. You want to win the game and you want to be physical and execute the same way but you also want to see what you have for the years to come.”
It’s the first game of 2019. Sure, guys like Deandre Baker may be leaving, but it’s time for the next group of Dawgs to step up and show what they’ve got. Opportunity is knocking for plenty of guys and the staff will be watching and evaluating.
