Georgia sits at 3-0 after torching Buffalo, Mizzou, and Florida Atlantic in the opening weeks of the college football season. And while each of those games had their moments of head-scratching frustration, the general consensus is as follows: the offensive line is better than expected, the run game is as good as its ever been, and the defense is just about ready to hit its stride. That said, what has stood out the most of all of that is the play of Aaron Murray. Yes, it’s true he’s struggled at points this year, but it’s also true that he’s playing exponentially better than he did last season. He knows he’s surrounded by talent and he’s more than comfortable using it as much as possible. It’s a marked difference from last season when it seemed Murray had lost steam and hit the dreaded ‘sophomore slump’.

Georgia Bulldogs: Michael Bennett, ‘I can do everything, man’

In case you didn’t notice, Michael Bennett is Georgia’s leading receiver so far this season (17 receptions, 265-yards, and two touchdowns), and it’s about time people started giving props where props is due—and maybe, in the process, stop calling Bennett a ‘possession’ receiver because, ya know what, he really hates that! During Tuesday’s weekly press session, Bennett...

Georgia Bulldogs: Todd Grantham on Vandy, ‘It’s us against them’

Todd Grantham remains stoic when speaking about the scuffle he had with Vanderbilt coach James Franklin at the end of last season’s contest in Nashville, but it’s hard to believe that there isn’t a little bit of an itch to make sure Georgia’s defense leaves no doubt this time around.
