Okay, this is a fact, but maybe it doesn’t bother me too much.
One reason it may not is because Kirby had a role in the parenthetical data. The team may not have a feel for what it’s like to play in that venue, but the head coach sure does.
On the other hand, this is a fact that does bother me.
Georgia could be down three defensive linemen at LSU, according to coach Kirby Smart.
Junior defensive end David Marshall has a left foot injury and is out indefinitely. Smart said following Tuesday’s practice that “it doesn’t look good for this game” where Marshall’s status is concerned.
Reserve nose guard DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle is also out, Smart said, without offering more details on the senior.
Smart said sophomore nose guard Devonte Wyatt could make the trip to LSU, where the No. 2-ranked Bulldogs play at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday (TV: CBS, Radio: WSB 750 AM, 95.5 FM).
Wyatt didn’t play in last Saturday’s 41-13 win against Vanderbilt on account of a leg injury he suffered last week in practice.
“Devonte is rehabbing hard, we think he might be able to go,” Smart said. “He’s been running for two days.”
No front line guys there, but depleted depth in an area where depth may be more crucial than anywhere is certainly gives me pause for thought, especially against a team that wants to run the ball.
The article goes on to say that Malik Herring and Jay Hayes will look to step up in the line rotation. You also have to wonder if true freshman Jordan Davis, who, according to his head coach, “… hasn’t arrived yet”, is due for a larger role Saturday.
Good thing Georgia has a bye week after this.
