Wednesday Morning Dawg Bites: Back To Reality.

Scott Cunningham

I don't know about you, but I have more to do this morning than I have time to do it in. But before we all go about our daily chores, here's a somewhat abbreviated version of what's making news in Bulldog Nation.

Full Video of Jeremy Pruitt's Post Clemson Game Press Conference - Bulldawg Illustrated
Jeremy Pruitt meets the media for the first time since the UGA victory over Clemson. My impression of Jeremy Pruitt so far is that he is accessible, but he does not mince words. I can buy into that.

UGA DC Pruitt 'not satisifed' despite dominant second half showing versus Clemson | Online Athens
Coach Pruitt notes that the Bulldog defense easily could have given up more points on Saturday, and is 100% right. Cole Stoudt actually had open receivers in the second half, he was just too rattled to see them. And a QB with better wheels really could have done some damage on blitzes where the Red and Black lost containment. While I fully support worrying about complacency from players, I don't think that's an issue with our defensive coaches. Again, I can buy into that.

Mitchell jogs at practice, has 'outside chance' to play | Bulldogs Beat with Seth Emerson |
Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley both jogged along the sideline at practice yesterday and Mike Bobo told reporters there was "an outside chance" the two could play against South Carolina. However, it's worth noting that there's a huge difference between jogging a couple of hundred yards and participating in full contact tackle football. So I wouldn't hold my breath on either one, and especially not Mitchell.

Rather, it would probably be better to spend your psychic energy hoping that Hutson Mason can recognize open down field receivers a little better, that Jonathan Rumph can be integrated into the game plan, and that Michael Bennett and Chris Conley can be used to spread the field both vertically and horizontally so as to clear room for the running game.

That's all I got this morning. Make it a good one Bulldogs!
