While the Noles and Blazers will take the field in just over 24 hours, I am sure that it's the Georgia Dawgs who are the most eager to escape the dog house. They suffered an embarrassing 35 to 14 beat-down to Tennessee this weekend, and now hope to defeat the other Tennessee team.
There are two obstacles that they will have to deal with. First, the Commodores are improved, this is not the same Vandy squad that rested comfortably in the cellar. They want to win, and have proven that they can. In fact, a year ago, they beat the Dawgs at Athens.
Which takes us to the second issue, this game will be played in Music City. My guess is that half of the stands will be full of Dawg-lovers, but the other half, will try their best to make these Bulldogs squirm.
"It's not really anything magical, things seem to work better when you block better, things seem to work better when you tackle better, thing seem to work better when you keep your pads level low and use your hands like you're supposed to," says Georgia Bulldogs Head Coach Mark Richt.
