Even if it isn’t pretty, an SEC win doesn’t happen by accident. It comes about because at least a few Georgia Bulldogs go above and beyond, making the plays necessary to get the job done. Those players are your MVDs, the Most Valuable ‘Dawgs from Georgia’s win over Kentucky.
Offense: Zamir White. There was a lot about the Bulldog offense that didn’t work right today. Giving it to Zamir White was one thing that did. White finished with career highs in carries (26) and yards (136). His 22 yard touchdown sprint was the play that put this one out of reach. Really a great day for Zeus.
Defense: Nakobe Dean. On a day where Georgia was thin at linebacker Dean stepped up to play most of the game, racking up 14 total tackles, a career high. It was a good warm up for this weekend, when a Bulldog defense missing over half its starters may need him to make 30 stops.
Special Teams: Jake Camarda. The Bulldogs has no punt return yardage, no kickoff return yardage, and were 0 for 1 on field goals attempts in this weirdly unsatisfying game. But Sir Punts-A-Lot just keeps doing his thing, averaging 47.5 yards per kick and even making a tackle. In the words of that old country song, Jake, he’s been a good ‘Dawg. Until later...
