Georgia vs Georgia Southern
Sat, Aug 30
The Georgia Bulldogs start their run to a possible BCS Championship with Georgia Southern. The Eagles bring a successful passing attack at the FCS level to Athens, but will be without eight starters and starting a new QB.
Keys to the game:
1. Just Run the Ball
For last year's Sugar Bowl, I said UGA has such a huge advantage on the lines that they should just pound the ball on their way to the endzone. The same thing applies here.
2. Practice Makes Perfect
If UGA can successfully run the ball then nothing else should matter. Once they gain control of the game, then they can play around with some things on offense and defense that may help them later in the year against better opponents.
3. Avoid the Injury Report
Georgia HC Mark Richt has talked about using Knowshon Moreno as a PR. If UGA is doing things right, we should not even see the Heisman candidate in the second half. QB Matt Stafford doesn't have a solid backup, so this might be the time to get a backup some game action.
The hype is so great in Athens, that I think Georgia may struggle a little in the 1st Quarter. But once they get going there will be no stopping them in this game.
