Third Quarter Open Thread

NCAA Football: Georgia at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

After one half of football in Nashville it appears that Georgia’s by ghost threat tonight is their own waning interest.

Some sloppy penalties against the defense allowed Vandy to matriculate down the field for a pair of field goals, but otherwise this one has been pretty convincing. Georgia leads the Commodores 21-6 at the half, and has had almost everything working so far. A few notes before things kick off again.

• The Bulldog offense has accumulated 249 yards of offense, with 146 of them on the ground. When you’re averaging 8.1 yards per carry on the ground you’d be crazy to do much else.

• The defense has really hurt itself with three personal foul penalties. While the ‘Dores have been able to get some things going, especially with misdirection, it’s all amounted to only 145 yards of total offense.

• No Zamir White so far but, brother, let me share with you the good news of your friend and mine D’Andre Swift. Swifty looks imminently heathy so far, rushing for 74 yards on 8 carries, a nifty 9.3 yards per carry.

• Eli Wolf absolutely leveled two guys on Brian Herrien’s rushing touchdown while lining up at fullback, as he did a couple of times in the red zone. I feel like that may become something to keep an eye on as the season develops.

• LOL VAWLS. Sorry, that has nothing to do with our game, but it bears repeating.

• Kirby was livid with the defense in the second quarter, and there’s no doubt it was justified. There were a series of mental errors, some misalignments, and a series of dumb penalties. Do not be surprised to see some personnel changes on that side of the ball.

• On the positive side, of you took the over on Nolan Smith getting at least 0.5 sacks, congratulations. This kid is going to be something.

Let’s get ready to kick things off in the third quarter.

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
