Third Quarter Open Thread: Let’s Run The One Where We Don’t Fumble.

NCAA Football: Georgia at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The vaunted Kentucky defense, which came into the game surrendering 13 points per game has given up 14 points in the first half against a Bulldog offense that has been solidly efficient. It frankly should have been at least 20, as a bad snap from freshman center Trey Hill and a botched handoff between Jake Fromm and D’Andre Swift were the only thing to slow the Bulldogs down in the red zone.

Following that last drive UGA sits at 176 yards of total offense to 133 for the home team. One promising sign so far has been the Bulldog rushing attack averaging 4.6 yards per carry to the Wildcats’ 2.7 ypc.

Speaking of which, the Bulldog defense has done an admirable job of keeping Benny Snell in check, limiting him to 61 yards on 17 carries for 3.6 yard per carry average. If Snell continues that rate in the second half and the Bulldogs can just not turn the damn ball over, this one should go in the win column for the Red and Black.

A few other random thoughts:

I hope all of you find someone in your life who pays as much attention to you as opposing offensive coordinators pay to Tyson Campbell.

Jeremiah Holloman’s five targets so far are more than the rest of the UGA wide receivers combined.

Rodrigo Blankenship is going to hit an inattentive Kentucky cheerleader with a kickoff before the clock hist zero. Book it. Until later . . .

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
