1. Georgia football needs to rest the banged-up players
While this might sound crazy, Georgia football should rest any player who has anything wrong with him. Whether it’s the stomach flu, a nagging injury, or anything in between, these starters who have sacrificed week-after-week need to get some rest, while they should play a couple of series, don’t risk anything against Charleston Southern — they aren’t the New England Patriots.
Georgia can beat Charleston Southern easily if they stay focused, so it won’t matter who is on the field as long as they understand the assignment.
This game is not the time to get cute or be Mr. Football. Georgia has a chance to do something it hasn’t done in over 40 years. Why risk it here against Charleston Southern?
No disrespect to the Bucs, Georgia has to look at the bigger picture. A non-conference game at home allows you to dress more players, so Georgia should use that to their advantage.
The other rule Georgia can use is the redshirt rule. The four-game limit to redshirt will allow head coach Kirby Smart to use some freshmen we have not seen much of this season.
Seeing Amarius Mims, Brock Vandagriff, and Jackson Meeks will give a glimpse into the future of this offense. Plus, you never know when you need one of these guys, and this is a great chance to get them a lot of playing time. We want to see a high participation number because the Dawgs should overpower these Bucs and do it with a total group effort.
