Alright folks, it’s game week.
Can Tech’s offense pick up were it left off against Duke?
Can Tech’s defense pick up were it left off against Duke?
Should Duke be the measuring stick? Don’t answer that.
The point is Tech’s offense, and its defense, was rolling (other than the Wake clunker) before the bye.
Here’s the good news.
Last year’s bye came on Sept. 27. Tech came back and smoked Duke 27-0. It had another Saturday off Nov. 15 and came back and smoked Miami 41-23 in a Thursday nighter.
Coach Paul Johnson said he thinks everyone who got dinged up against Duke will be back for Georgia, including starting center Sean Bedford. Robert Hall, who had once said he hoped to be back in time for Georgia, likely won’t be back until the spring.
As colleague Tim Tucker reported earlier, Georgia coach Mark Richt said he hopes that wide receiver A.J. Green and safety Baccari Rambo will be able to play on Saturday. Both were injured against Auburn.
A few hoops thoughts…
Gani Lawal has picked up where he left off last season. Through four games, he’s averaging 15 points and 11.8 rebounds a game.
And, the rest of the big men flanking him are doing fairly well, as well. Favors has a 13/7.8 going. Peacock 9.5/5.3.
Field goal defense is 36.9 percent, rebound margin is 14, a stat I’m making up but seems interesting…..personal foul margin is 14 in Tech’s favor, opponents are hitting just 27.5 percent of their 3-pointers…
Biggest concern: 73 turnovers.
