Second Half Thread: That Could Have Been Worse

Georgia hasn't played particularly well. Kentucky has played just a little worse. On a sloppy track in Athens it's been an exhibition of sloppy football all around, with every point on the board traceable to a miscue of one sort or another. Two turnovers apiece already gives one the impression that there's still plenty of room for one team or the other to back this one up before the day is done.

The Bulldogs have run for 112 yards (Sony Michel leads the team with 56 yards on the ground) and six different Bulldogs have an attempt so far. Brice Ramsey continues to do solid work as a punter, but has also looked not awful under center today, completing 4 of 6 passes for 23 yards. At this point Georgia has no reliable quarterbacks on the roster. But so far the unreliable quarterbacks have not been a spectacular disaster, and I'm afraid that's as good as things are going to get for a while.

But no one has done unspectacular quite like Kentucky QB Patrick Towles, who continues to take up his own row on the struggle bus, completing only 3 of 13 passes and throwing the game's only interception.

The forecast in Athens calls for a 70% chance of rain and a 100% chance of more ugly football. On the bright side, more than half the seats in Sanford Stadium appear to be full of people willing to watch it, at least for the moment. While there's not a lot of evidence that this team emerged from the last chaotic week a better unit, they also don't appear to have completely fallen apart. So there's that. We'll be back after the final whistle with the game recap and your thread for the afternoon and evening games. Until then . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!
