Georgia’s strength overpowered the Tigers
For the second straight week, bruising running back Zamir White scored an exclamation point touchdown that highlighted his strength and agility.
Against Arkansas, Zeus appeared to be on his way down after being shoe-laced by a Hogs defender. He not only regained his balance but stayed on his feet long enough to make his way into the endzone.
In the Auburn game, he bullied multiple would-be-tacklers and slipped his way out of the Tigers’ grasp on his way to another emphatic score.
Both runs displayed his grit as a runner, but they also showed the strength and conditioning program at Georgia is second-to-none.
Strength coach Scott Sinclair puts programming in place that has the entire team performing at the highest level possible and he should get a ton of credit for Georgia football’s physicality and elite conditioning.
That eliteness has been an x-factor for the Dawgs through six weeks of the season, but now comes the tough part. With injuries piling up, Georgia must find a way to stay as healthy as possible.
There are two tough games in the next three weeks with thankfully a bye week in between, but this conditioning will be a big factor in terms of whether the Dawgs can stay at this elite level.
