Happy Friday, Dawg Nation! The weather is quickly cooling, and Georgia plays between the hedges for the first time in 2020. Auburn has come to town much earlier than we are accustomed to, and there is still at lot of unknowns around our offense.
We will see who lines up behind center… and who actually plays center as well as other key spots on the offensive line. With JT Daniels cleared, you’d have to think he gets some playing time. However, Stetson Bennett has received a lot of reps with the first team offense and is the favorite to start. On the line, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Warren McClendon and Warren Ericson play at right tackle and center respectively.
This type rotation of offensive line rotation has occurred since the practices began, partly due to the need of finding so many new starters along the line, but also because COVID-19 has prevented the unit from gelling and finding chemistry as quickly as usual. These things take time to happen, and I’m sure the line will play better than they did against Arkansas.
Turning our attention to Dawgs in the NFL, Jets wide receiver Lawrence Cager suffered a nasty hamstring injury in the Thursday night game against Denver. That turf at MetLife Stadium is atrocious and has been causing major injuries all season, and Cager is the latest to suffer from that.
Finally, as they tend to do, the national media has weighed in with predictions for the game tomorrow. Many are believing the 6 ½ point spread in Georgia’s favor is too large, while others believe that the UGA will lose the game outright. It’s not every year that Auburn beats Georgia, as the Dawgs have taken 12 of the past 15 meetings. So, in the words of Lucious Fox from the Dark Knight, “Good luck”.
As always - wash your hands, wear your masks, and GO DAWGS!!!
