imageNational media takes notice of Georgia defense as big Tennessee contest looms

After shutting down Auburn to the tune of 6 points and 216 total yards, just about everybody has taken of Georgia's dominant defense. The group was universally praised by the national media after making life miserable for Bo Nix and the Tigers. The performance has drastically changed how the Bulldogs are viewed as a

    Yay! The national media finally acknowledges a defensive unit that ended last year at or near the top in every national defensive stats category -- with most of the defenders returning.

    Wonders never cease.

    It's going to be an interesting game. UT has to establish a strong and consistent run game to have any chance. If they can't, the UT QB will be running for his life on every series.

    Stopping the run is what this GA defense does best. The scary part is they stop the pass almost as well.

    Stetson Bennett and the GA receivers against Pruitt's defense will be interesting. This will be Bennett's second week getting the starters reps in practice. We'll see how much progress has been made.

    They say it may well be a "Rainy Night/afternoon in GA." That could alter things a whole lot. Weather Channel saysd 80% chance of rain with temp. in 70s. TN's running game might get murky. UGA's passing game may depend on Stetson's "hand size" and grip? No, I am not calling up Fromm's rainy day performances. That was then. Stet is a little fellow...look at him in the huddle...I hope he is able to handle a wet ball. It will also impede the scramble...something Pruitt will be very happy about with UGA. The D will have to dig in against TN's OL. Containing QB Jarrett Guarantano is key. Contain him and UGA wins easily. Let him become mobile and it is another game. He can hand off to Gray and Chandler but must not be able to pass as consistently or scramble. UGA has the D...just do your job, D and Game over.

    To heck with covering the score, all you need to do is win by one!
