Derion Kendrick, secret weapon?

JT Daniels:

What has Derion Kendrick brought to UGA and will Daniels get any insight from him going into this game…
“I love DK. Since he’s been here, me and him talk a lot of trash to each other in practices. We have a really good relationship. I really like him. He’s a really good ball player and then yeah, I’ll ask him whatever I can, whatever I see based on technique and certain things Clemson does. But really with DK, it’s awesome to have a really good competitor. A really good ball player.”

Kirby Smart:

On Derion Kendrick and having a player that knows the opposing team well… 

“I don’t know that you can or can’t. His information would probably be more personnel, in terms of what guys are like. I’ve been against these guys. I know their wideouts. I know maybe something about their defensive backs or something specific. Scheme-wise I think it’s tough. There is so much more that goes into it. There’s not like, oh when they do this, this is what’s coming. You can’t say that because no offensive coordinator, no defensive coordinator gives the same look over and over. All that ends up doing is gets you chasing the wrong idea. So from a personnel standpoint, it probably helps because I think he knows those guys, but outside of that there is not a lot to it.”

Over/under on the number of sign stealing questions he’s been asked this offseason?

  1. Kirby talks about no offensive coordinator gives the same look over and over again. Was he asleep on the sidelines while Foley’s offense was on the field in 2019?

    I’ll tell you how bad it is. I was driving up I 85 past the Clemson exit and Venables stole one of my signs as I drove past. Kirbs and the other coaches are going to have to be real careful!

  3. Personally, I think Mr. Kendrick has been disposed multiple times by coaches and players…his memory should be fresh and those signs should be current…I love it

    I’d worry more about Dabo’s crew knowing what Kendrick does well and does not, how to bait him.
