Georgia football must exert dominance
Against Arkansas, Georgia showed that their offensive line could take over a game. Finally, this group got enough reps in a game to gain some confidence and trust in what they were doing.
Nothing takes the soul from another team faster than just getting mauled on the ground. Since Kirby Smart got to Georgia, it has been clear that is his number one goal each week — to lean on other teams until they break.
Auburn has got to be a tired team. The Tigers have played three close games in a row, including a late-night game Saturday night.
Having a late matchup as they did against the Bayou Bengals cuts into their recovery time, making it harder to get players rested for the next opponent.
The 88 plays their defense were on the field for at LSU may allow Georgia to pound on them and grind them down early.
Auburn will be fired up for this game, and so will their fans. None of that matters if Georgia comes out on offense, punches the Tigers in the mouth, and doesn’t stop.
For once, the Dawgs need to leave the good ole boy mentality in Athens and exert sheer dominance against Auburn. Georgia has to want it more, but most importantly, they have to keep up this grit they’ve flaunted to get them to 5-0.
