“Tray Scott has quite the rotation to work with.”

Serious question:  of the two teams in Georgia’s opener, which has the better defensive front?

With Bresee and Murphy leading the way, Clemson’s is seriously loaded, but I’m hard pressed to think of a time when Georgia ran a deeper front itself.   Looks like it’s gonna be a helluva battle to see which gets the upper hand on the other’s offensive line.

    UGA’s OL is in flux and much make some serious improvements to overcome Clemson.

    I think this comes down to the OC’s ability adjust with th pieces they have to work wiith.

    They have some highly thought of players, but Jordan Davis will be the best player on the field.

  4. I know I am biased, but I think we have a strong core of 4 defensive lineman that can both stuff and have speed to get pressure…I like where we are upfront on defense…it’s the secondary that is thin and getting thinner…I’m hopeful the Dawg’s DL will be a strength in the opener…GATA boys

    just a WAG here, but based on Clemson’s game with OSU…gonna say the Dawgs have a better front.

    I believe we have the better DL, and considerably better front 7. Whether we use them as effectively as we should is another topic.

    I think the DLs are both great, but UGA gets the advantage when you look at the front 7 and depth.

    One more thing, Both of these DLs will make it tough to do what you want and force teams to be one dimensional. Clemson is going to really miss Etienne.

    Our OL room is filled with top-tier talent. Coach ’em up, Matt Luke. May not be pretty on Sept. 4, but the Dawgs should be able to win the LOS.

    In other words, the Dawgs’ OL should be able to handle Clemson’s DL. Dawgs’ DL should dominate Clemson’s OL.

    If both DLs are good, and neither team can run, then it might come down to who can throw and defend the pass. I think we can throw, but I worry about pass defense. On the other hand, their QB doesn’t have a lot of experience. I don’t have a clue how they look on the back of their defense?

    Has there ever been a more exciting opening game for UGA?

      Their quarterback is inexperienced but played very well against Notre Dame and Boston College while Lawrence was out. They were both middle of the packish pass defenses. He’s a good athlete and a very big guy but didn’t run much last year. Super strong arm. He should be tough to handle. Maybe not as big of a challenge as Trevor Lawrence, but still a big one and of a different type.

      It might not be the biggest ever opener, but it’s got to be close to it.

    Slight edge to Clemson, but they have a different scheme and body types so it’s a little bit of apples and oranges.

    Always comes down to turnovers, penalties, and special teams in these types of games.

    Put the other way, the key is which team’s OL can handle the other team’s powerful DL.
