Georgia football must play smart against the Hogs
While this slide may seem a bit cliche, it’s not because the Dawgs must play smart, disciplined football to beat the Hogs.
Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman knows what kind of team he needs to put on the field to beat Georgia, so the Dawgs must be more prepared and disciplined than the Hogs.
Naturally, dogs are far more disciplined than pigs are, but that isn’t the point here.
Georgia must continue to avoid silly mistakes on the ball’s defensive side, and I mean no stupid pass interference calls, targeting, holding, personal fouls, or anything in between. The Dawgs must keep their head down, play junkyard defense and show the Hogs they aren’t on their level.
As a defense, they should want to prove that they are elite, and to be able to stop a team like Arkansas when they have this much confidence, will be a statement.
Even though no one expected this game to be a top-10 showdown, it is one, and the Dawgs have an excellent opportunity to handle its business and get out of there with win No. 5.
ESPN College GameDay is in town, Smart has sent out a challenge to the fans, and it will be one of the season’s best games. Even though other fan bases will find a way to discredit Arkansas if Georgia beats them handily and say the Dawgs have a weak schedule.
Arkansas has played some tough teams, and they think they have played teams to Georgia’s caliber, but I’ve got a rude awakening for them, and I feel the Dawgs do too. Texas and the Aggies were great wins for Pittman and his Hogs, but this is a different animal altogether.
Georgia’s defense is far too strong for this offense, and they will put them in their place. While I think it’ll be a good game, the Dawgs will wear down that Arkansas offense and cause all kinds of havoc.
