Georgia Opens Fall Camp as the Favorite to Win the SEC East

Lot of talent and experience back in Athens for Georgia’s first fall practice, including two of the top running backs in the SEC, as well as a seasoned sophomore quarterback.
Maybe that will give the Dawgs an edge, as they try to capture their first SEC East title in five years.
Plenty of heartache for Georgia fans last year with an 8-5 record.
But the Dawgs are expected to make some noise this season. They’re favored to win the SEC East.
Said linebacker Roquan Smith:”We are Georgia. We expect to win every game that we go into. That’s just the mindset that we have, and I feel like we can actually do that this year. We just have to not get complacent, and take care of business one game at a time.”
One game at a time, and one goal at a time.
Said head coach Kirby Smart:”The number one goal for me is to reach our goals. We have a goal in punt. We have a goal in kickoff. We have a goal on defense. For every statistic, we have a goal. We didn’t reach many of those. Now, do you change your standard? Do you change your goals so you can make them? Or do you say we are not going to be very good in this area, let’s lower it. No. The standard is what it is. And we’ve got to try and get to that point.”
And coach Smart is pushing his guys in every way possible to get to that point.
Said Smart:”In summer workouts, we’d say the workout is going to be one thing, and then we would change it while we are out there to make them kind of get being uncomfortable.”
Said tight end Jeb Blazevich:”Changing up how we do meetings. If we sit in a certain spot, we can talk with our specific coaches on like punt team for example. On our end, we just have to trust the process and work hard.”
Work hard and hit hard like DB Tyrique McGhee.
Said Smart:”I would put Tyrique up there as one of our best tacklers. I learned a long time ago when you sign a young man from Peach County, he’s going to know how to tackle. Because one thing they do, is they knock the hell out of each other.”
That school of hard knocks will be needed to settle on Georgia’s starting offensive line.
Said Smart:”We are going to have a lot of shuffling across the offensive line throughout camp. How many do we have that can play winning football in the offensive line. And you can’t find that out on day one guys. You can’t find it out on day two because you still have shorts on.”
