Well that was fun. Georgia rolled past the Troy Trojans with hardly a hiccup. There were a couple of Trojan drives that made it inside the ten before stalling to keep the shutout intact. And i still have doubts about our ability to throw the ball around the park if we need to win a game that way. But it's hard to draw too many inferences, positive or negative, from a 66-0 beating of an 0-4 Troy squad missing its starting QB.
I suspect that the Tennessee Volunteers will provide a somewhat stiffer test this Saturday. But first, let's take one last look back at the Dawgs' Saturday.

Column: Brice Ramsey shows why his future is bright with Bulldogs | DogBytes Online
Marc Weiszer: "After redshirting last year, this was our first chance for Ramsey’s potential to punch us in the face. His arm strength and ability has been legend since he was a shaggy-haired eighth grader impressing on the summer camp circuit."
This makes me happy. | Get The Picture
As the Senator notes, it is only Troy State. But Georgia averaged 34.7 yards on punt returns on Saturday. The philosophy appears to have shifted away from not losing games in the return game to actively trying to win the game on special teams. I like it.
