Video: Vanderbilt gets Bulldogs’ full attention after last year’s postgame skirmish

Following is yet another installment of my weekly “Back Porch Chats” with the video folks at CineSport. This week it was Tara Petrolino asking me what the storylines are for the No. 5-ranked Georgia Bulldogs (3-0), who play host to Vanderbilt (1-2) on Saturday night at Sanford Stadium (7:45 p.m., ESPN2). . . .

Chip, good interview. I think you can’t overstate the effects of the suspensions on the defense…hopefully getting everyone back will solidify things. The offense is probably going to struggle some in the first half against Vandy and I’ll be suprised if the Dawgs score 40+ again. I can see them pulling away at the end though similar to the Mizzou game.

I hope the defense will be ready to play four quarters…because i think vandy will whip our depleted o-line….the weakness in the ol will start to reallly show once sec play starts….it’s a damn shame that spurrier has built a better team than we have with less talent….the man is a geat coach and i hate him…but damn you have to hand to the man…he went down to a dark hole and now they are the best team in the east

It’ll be close for a half and Dawgs will pull away to a 35-17 win. It’s almost like Richt has the brakes on this team early in the game, and once he realizes it’s closer than he likes, He turns Bobo lose

how is it not true..what spurrier has done…does anybody really have a good reason for us to play in the sec championship game against a team that hasn’t givien up 1 point in 9 quarters…..bama’s defense is better than some nfl teams….If we make it there…they will beat us down just like they did in 08…but this time we won’t even score…I think we should be glad to let SC win the east and go play bama…so they can take the ass whipping…Bama is the king of college football and always will be….I cant wait for saban to retire…but it wont be for another 20 years…

“joe jenkins” using the word “our” to make us think he’s a Georgia guy. Nice try, ‘Cock. And I mean that in the truest sense.

Nice try…but i’m a true dawg fan…i dont give a shit what ya’ll say. I hate the chickens and i hate spurrier. I do live in south carolina…and it gets hard as hell when we lose to them two years in a row…. Can anybody debate that opinion i made that spurrier has done more with less…damn some of yall are delusional.. I hope like hell we beat spurrier this year…but i will have to see more from the defense and o-line….I am happy about the way murray is playing he will break all of david greene’s records if he comes back for his senior year

Good interview Chip… Good points as always.

@ joe jenkings- – What exactly has Spurrier done at SC? Any SEC championships?? Have they represented the East yet to even play in it? Reality check! GO DAWGS!!

you and lil stevie have a lot in common…Both of you think the Dawgs are a sorry team. Since you live in SC, why don’t y’all hookup???

@ joe.. again.. By the way, you stated that SC is better than Georgia. The last time I checked the polls, UGA is 2 spots ahead. So the associated press and the coaches think that you are wrong. I tend to agree with the experts.

joe jenkins

well they are probably going to beat us three straight years in a row…their defense is better than ours with less talent and a new DC. They won more games than we did last year with less talent and lattimore on the sidelines.

@ blue ridge….funny bro…the polls are worthless….the number 1 and 2 teams are all that matters…after that ….the rest of the 23 are toss ups

Well when i was 9 yrs old…the first college football game i watched was when we played arkansas in the 87 liberty bowl and john kasay kicked a field goal to beat them 20-17……..I fell in love with uga after that because i loved the mascot and the red jerzeys and silver pants…. I just see the defense for how they are so far….unproven, just like our DC is…un damn proven….. Why cant yall see that??? what was supposed to be the strenth of the team is now our weakest link….just like in 2010…our strenth was supposed to be the o-line and they were also the weakest link

Will the sad clueless trolls ever figure out using “we” in a post filled with slams against “our” team fools no one?
joe jenkins if you are actually a Georgia fan then I pity your family or anyone who mistakenly thinks they can depend on you. At best you are the typical internet liar at worst you are a sad loser who has had nothing but defeat in every aspect of his pointless life. Actually it sounds like you fit in perfectly with the gamecocks either way.

It’s sad that I get questioned about being a true fan…just because i dont have a good opinion of our defense right now…its sad just because we are 3-0…and yall think we dont need any improvements on defense. when we are no where near the defense we had last year…when we have more talent and experience…

where i’m from i call chicken fans a bunch of delusional losers that havea liz honey attitude. the chickens have the most pathetic fan base in the world….If we beat ya’ll this year…don’t yall redneck losers realize…that will be the 47th time we have beaten yall…..dont yall realize yall only have one conference championshp in school history and would be nothing without spurrier
