Georgia football must avoid complacency on offense
If there is one thing Georgia football fans hate more than rotating quarterbacks, it is noon kickoffs.
The last time Georgia traveled to Nashville was for the season opener in 2019. It was a holiday weekend, and the game was at night — pretty much the perfect vacation for Georgia fans, and they showed up and packed the stadium full of red.
There were more Dawgs at that stadium than there were Commodores.
This year won’t be a vacation as Vanderbilt is about as low as they have been in 20 years. Georgia has been like a machine, and the only chance for Vanderbilt is to catch the giant sleeping. When the offense hits the field, they need domination on their mind.
No, more like Georgia needs to see red, have revenge on their mind, and deliver a demoralizing blow to make Vandy want to quit playing football altogether. After the Commodores decided, not once but twice, to cancel the game in 2020, the Dawgs need to make sure they remember just how bad it sucks to get blown out at home.
Georgia needs to show up and show out — they cannot give Vanderbilt any feeling of hope. Most importantly, they need to get up and get the starters out. There are many guys I am sure coaches would love to get more playing time, and the starters can ensure they can get plenty of looks by scoring early and often.
This Georgia team has a different feel to them. So they need to go into Nashville on Saturday, dominating the Commodores, and get home healthy.
If the Dawgs can do that, it would prove to the portion of the fanbase raised in doubting with Larry Munson that these Dawgs carry a different bite and that the feeling in the pit of their stomach isn’t negative but extremely positive.
