“The more experience that I get with these guys – whether it be game experience or practice experience, it means something, and day-by-day, we’re all getting better and the camaraderie is growing”, Wimbush said. “If we use our technique to our advantage, it should go our way”.
Georgia did manage to win its season-opener against Appalachian State on Saturday.
Junior wide out Equanimeous St. Brown led all skill players with 58 snaps in the game; junior running back Josh Adams was next with 50 snaps in the game. We can’t expect this kid to wave a magic wand and have a ideal game. Despite what you might think, the freshman will not win or lose this game for Georgia. “He’s got a great arm, and so obviously we don’t have a lot of film on him, but we hear the kid is a gamer, and I’m assuming his coaches and his staff are going to do a great job having him ready to play, having him feeling confident”. It will be Georgia’s inexperienced offensive line that will be the difference between a win and a loss for Georgia. Georgia will be next, but the Bulldogs believe they have a plan in place. “Like I said, they have four offensive linemen who have played for a long time and they are as good looking an o-line as you will play ever”. “And I just love being in that adversity, I guess you could feel like”. “Georgia, when I came there in 1964, was that team that they would go to a place like MI and get a big paycheck to make their budget”. You can imagine that it’s not fun when it gets down to just tackling him one-on-one. I’m excited to have Riley back out there. So the old adage of saving it for the game doesn’t work because in my history the ones you save for the game don’t usually play well in the game. He does not get a lot of opportunity because your second guy has to take all the reps, so he did not get a lot of those. It’s just one of those things that, yeah, we had a great job on Saturday, we rushed for whatever many yards, we had three guys, whatever. “I think he has that in himself”. “I’m actually glad it’s not cold”.
“There are certainly a lot of things we can correct and fix, we played a lot of young players, started three true freshmen on offense”, Satterfield said. I definitely respect them, but good competition is hard to come by.
Yet his 106 rushing yards (on 12 carries with 1 TD) is more than all five of the other debuting Kelly QBs had combined in their first starts and the most in a first start by an Irish quarterback in at least 40 years. Given the coming of this Atlanta/Georgia/Dixie theme in their part of the Midwest, they selected the 85-year-old people’s choice of the Bulldog Nation as their honored guest. “So listen, if you let these guys go through to the second level and you’re relying on your safeties one on one from 12 yards off to make tackles, they need to be of National Football League pedigree to make those tackles consistently”.
How does a mobile quarterback like Wimbush affect the way you coach on defense? This is not the Jake Fromm Show. It looked like an error by Fromm, heaving a ball downfield into double coverage, Wims saving him by making a spectacular play.
