Second Half Open Comment Thread: That Escalated Quickly.

Georgia enters the second half of its opener with things well in hand, leading Louisiana-Monroe 35-7. A few statistical notes:

  • Nick Chubb did what Nick Chubb does, rushing 12 times for 77 yards and 2 touchdowns.
  • UL-M more than doubled their total yardage on that scoring drive right before the half to tally 134 total yards in the first half. Georgia's offense nearly doubled that total with 267.
  • Both Bulldog QBs who played in the first half looked sharp, with Greyson Lambert an efficient 7 of 9 for 113 yards and a touchdown, while Brice Ramsey attempted two third down passes, completed both of them, and now sits at 2 of 2 for 51 yards and a touchdown.
  • Sony Michel has had a lot to do with those stats, catching two passes for 79 yards and the Ramsey score. But freshman Terry Godwin has also looked impressive, carding 3 catches for 31 yards in the first half of his Bulldog debut.
  • Defensively it's been Leonard Floyd's world, with UL-M ball carriers running around in it with a nervous tick. Floyd has 6 tackles and 1 and 1/2 tackles for loss so far.

Going forward I expect Georgia will do more of what it's done so far, just cycling players in and out, getting repetitions for guys up and down the depth chart, trying to firm up those last few depth chart battles. One thing's for sure. My 48 point prediction for this game made back in early August appears is severe peril. Until later . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!
