It’s been a frustratingly sloppy first quarter of football, with two third down penalties each putting the breaks on Georgia drives that could have ended in points. Tack on a missed field goal and a Jake Camarda punt that could have been downedninside the five but instead bounced into the end zone for a touchback, and there’s no argument that Georgia’s executed well.
On the bright side, the Bulldog defense has been just as much of a puzzle for new Gator starter Anthony Richardson as one would expect. Dan Lanning is going to continue to dial up pressure, and so far Richardson is dealing with it the way Dan Mullen feared he would.
The Bulldogs need to establish an identity on offense in this second quarter, and a turnover on defense wouldn’t hurt, either.
