3 takeaways from blowout win over Tennessee

03 Octobre 2017

That includes Tennessee's 34-31 victory in Athens past year that featured a 43-yard game-winning Hail Mary pass as time expired.

The Red Raiders had a chance to take their first lead since 14-7 but advanced only to their own 37 before punting the ball back to Oklahoma State with 3:21 remaining. All the SEC schools I mentioned (save maybe for LSU) had their down moments and dark times.

Georgia is good, really good, especially on defense. The offense has developed balance, he's hitting receivers deep downfield and even showed off his running ability at times in the romp on Rocky Top.

There would be no frantic finishes or dramatic comebacks in the latest edition of the Georgia-Tennessee rivalry.

Tennessee is now 33-23 under fifth year head coach Butch Jones, with a 14-20 mark in Southeastern Conference play. MyBookie.ag has been around for what seems like forever and their reputation is as promising as the college football betting odds they've thrown together for this Saturday's enticing match. I'll share audio of what Shoop said about the Bulldogs this week, and address whether his comments demonstrate a UGA offense that's turned a corner. The Bulldogs followed with a field goal.

"When you have a team as good as Georgia and you get the ball on a turnover in that field position, you have to come away with seven points". I don't think we had any explosive plays.

Tennessee defensive back Nigel Warrior (18) chases Georgia running back Elijah Holyfield, Evander's son, Saturday at Neyland Stadium.

Kendal Vickers notches the first sack of the game for the Vols, forces a three-and-out for Georgia. That includes two matchups against teams (Mississippi State and Notre Dame) which are both averaging over 36.5 points per game this season. They need a win, and Georgia comes as a slightly weaker opponent. And even if the Gators are bad and Georgia is better, the Bulldogs have often lost those games in Jacksonville.

Il avait perdu la balle et j'avais dû prendre un jaune pour remédier à ça et la récupérer. On en est venu aux mains , mais ce jour là, Ibra m'avait un peu dans le collimateur.

Georgia's dominating, shutdown effort snapped Tennessee's streak of scoring at 289 games, which was the nation's fourth-longest.

The game, however, did not go so according to plan.

Alabama still tops the rankings and is followed by Clemson, Oklahoma and Penn State. Later, Tennessee suffered a blocked punt of nearly inconceivable origin: a line drive off the helmet of Georgia junior linebacker and special-teams man DeAndre Walker, that very rare player to block a punt with his head.

A probable glaring example was in 2015 when Alabama came to Georgia. Knoxville businesses say the big SEC games bring in big money for them. It showed against the Bulldogs.

Enter Kirby Smart. I was not fond of the hire as Smart had no head coaching experience ever but Bulldog fans believed they had Nick Saban 2.0 now. "Our goal is to win every single game".

That's big time. For real, really, it's serious. They lost the next four games. The Bulldogs are now ranked No. 5 and stand behind only one SEC team. And that defense with Roquan Smith and Lorenzo Carter leading the way is absolutely sick. The history speaks against Georgia, and the players know it.

If they do keep winning, it's a safe bet that they'll continue to enjoy themselves, too. Considering that, the best way to stop the Vols' pass rush will be to get good yardage on first downs and limit passing-downs altogether.

And that is why it is a different year compared to other years in the Mark Richt Era.
