‘Back Porch Chat:’ Replacing Michael Bennett, protecting Aaron Murray and stopping Marcus Lattimore

Time for another “Back Porch Chat” with the good folks from CineSport. Thursday I talked with Tara Petrolino about Saturday’s monumental matchup between No. 5 Georgia and No. 6 South Carolina in Columbia, S.C. She wanted to know how the Bulldogs are going to deal with the season-ending injury to leading receiver Michael Bennett, if Georgia will be able to protect quarterback Aaron Murray and what the Dogs must do to slow down Marcus Lattimore. . . .

Interesting that you don’t hear a lot of bashers clamoring for Mason to de-redshirt and take his “rightful” place as the Georgia starting QB since EVERYONE can see that Mason is the far superior QB to Murray and that Richt and staff are only playing favorites in choosing him to be the starting QB.

Seems like last season and all pre-season if Mason went 3-4 in a practice or a scrimmage, there would be multiple posters that were incensed that Murray was the starter since he can’t tie his own shoes and Mason is the 2nd coming of Dan Marino.

Maybe they will be back if Georgia loses. Hope we don’t find out.

I believe the chickens will blitz a lot which can open up the bun game if the OL will open up a lane or two. The chickens haven’t faced an balanced team like UGA, so their defense is going to be guessing a lot themselves. I really don’t expect Lattimore to run up 175 yared on the DAWGS nor do I expect Gurshall to get their usual yardage. I believe the difference in this game will be Murray with accurate passes. He is better than Connor Shaw and I believe UGA’s secondary is better also. GO DAWGS, GATA!!

Yes I agree with Chip. Will the rush of SC DL cause Murrey to fumble and throw picks? Will the SC LB’s get to the freshman RB’s and cause fumbles.

Hey Chip, will SC run out of the spread zone read or the I? They ran the spread with Garcia and Shaw, but they switch to the I last week in the 2 CD half of the Kentucky game.

I like that Amario Herrera is starting. He’s great against the run. As said above, let’s just hope Murray doesn’t turn the ball. if he doesn’t, i belive we win. I”d like to win big just to shut up the ole a’hole ball coach

UGA will score some points, but not as many as usual…UGA is playing a team with a legit defense, and it will slow down the offense a bit.

On the other side, UGA’s defense through 5 games has been very unimpressive. Shaw is completing a high percentage of his passes, and UGA hasn’t been getting pressure on the QB…that dosn’t bode well. Also, I think Lattimore will get his yards.

With SC playing at home, I think they get the win by 7.
