Georgia football live updates, practice notes
11:30 am update: Georgia coach Kirby Smart will be meeting with reporters at 12 p.m. ET. Warren McClendon and Zion Logue will also speak to reporters Monday.
Smart begins by congratulating Champ Bailey. Says the former Georgia defenseman will be recognized during Saturday’s game against Tennessee.
“All of his staff are doing an incredible job with all the work they have done. Our boys are excited. I know our fan base will be loud and proud. I want to challenge our fan base. We had some great matchups last year that made an impact.”
“On Saturday we will find out whether we are in shape or not.” – Smart on the Tennessee pace and Georgia conditioning.
“It’s not looking good for his availability this week. It’s a chest injury,” Smart said of Smith. “He’s probably in doubt for this week.”
“He played better than I expected. He was on the run, he was on the run,” Smart said of Carter. “He kept the point. It’s really about endurance and being able to keep going and conditioning.”
“He did some elite stuff on Saturday.” — Smart about Stetson Bennett
“Experience. Chris has played in a lot of football games and that has allowed him to make a lot of plays. — Smart on Chris Smith
Smart mentions that Dominick Blaylock was struggling with back spasms but he should be able to train today.
“We’ll see if they can cover,” Smart said on the secondary.
“I don’t think Kelee lacks confidence
“I think we came out and played very physically. It was a harder game getting us off the line.” – Warren McClendon on offensive line performance.
“It always cheers us up when we see Kenny running through people like that.” — McClendon on Kenny McIntosh.
“Just having an efficient running game and being able to control the line of scrimmage.” – McClendon on Georgia offense.
“Any team you play in the SEC, the challenge is there. We need to figure out the best way to attack them.” – McClendon in Tennessee.
“They move pretty fast. You get a playoff every 10 seconds. Conditioning will be a big factor this week.” – McClendon on Tennessee’s pace.
“This is going crazy. When I think back to the Arkansas game or the Notre Dame game my freshman year. It’s a fun game and I’m looking forward to it.” — McClendon on the fan atmosphere.
“We know it’s going to be a good game. It’s the next game. We’ll take it like it’s the next game.”
“He definitely stood up for our defense. He demands excellence. He’s pushing us. He comes in at 110 percent.” — Warren McClendon on Jamon Dumas-Johnson.
The biggest game of the college football season comes this Saturday at Sanford Stadium, with the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs hosting the No. 2 Tennessee Volunteers.
Both teams go into the game with 8-0 records. Georgia earned a 42-20 win over rivals Florida while Tennessee defeated Kentucky 44-6.
The winner of this game not only controls the SEC East, but will add a big win to his potential college football playoff roster. Both teams already have marquee wins, with Georgia beating No. 8 in Oregon and Tennessee past No. 6 in Alabama.
The Volunteers have one of the best offenses in the country, led by quarterback Hendon Hooker. But slowing the Tennessee passing attack, which ranks first in the SEC, isn’t all it takes to slow Tennessee.
