So how many times did you get grief over playing Charleston Southern last week? The guys over at Orange & Blue Hue ask if anyone wants to complain about the schedule now? Simply put Georgia,Virginia Tech, and Oklahoma fans all wished their teams played cupcakes in week one.
Mark Bradley of the AJC after watching the Dawgs for two years sees something missing at UGA, and it isn’t talent. Maybe that slice of Time-Out Pie that Coach Urban Meyer served them up last year took some of their mojo away. The season is still young, so the Dawgs can’t be wrote off. Reading some of the Bulldog sites a lot of them have already done just that.
After the first game all the buzz was about Riley Cooper showing he was ready to be number one target for Tebow, and also for yaking after catching three passes in a row.
Coach Meyer said after the game, “Riley played like he practiced. He’s playing as good as he’s ever played. I know it’s been one game, but the way he practiced, I knew he was ready for a breakout game.”
Tim Tebow played less than a half, but both Olin Buchanan and the Rivals.com Fan Poll still has him in the lead for the Heisman Trophy. Yes that is a Heisman Trophy poll after the first week of the season.
On to week two, with the Troy Trojans paying a visit to The Swamp. Florida Coach Urban Meyer says not to take this team lightly, and they have more NFL talent than “several” Southeastern Conference teams the Gators will play this season. It may be easy to over look Troy after they got off to a bad start to their season with one of Coach Meyer’s old teams in Bowling Green.
The flu has hit the Gators this week just like many football teams across college football. Urban Meyer is monitoring his players’ flu situation closely. Right now Brandon Hicks and Nick Alajajian have been reported to have the flu.
Jelani Jenkins looks like he will be out due to an ankle sprain. While the defensive line could get a boost as Lawrence Marsh was able to practice Wednesday. Also Carl Johnson after limping off the field in the CSU game will be ready to go against Troy.
