When college fans look back on this upcoming weekend, they might be shocked at one game in particular.

Tennessee at Georgia.

Georgia has played well this season dealing with key defensive stars missing several games. Linebacker Alec Ogletree and strong safety Bacarri Rambo both missed the first four games of the year. 

These two haven't played a game at full speed all season. My question for the Dawgs is: How will time away effect the two players on defense?

I have a feeling that Georgia could get burned early by Tennessee's QB Tyler Bray. Coach Dooley might look at the defense on Georgia's side and test their ability to mesh.

Tennessee, with Bray and wide receivers Cordarrelle Patterson and Justin Hunter, could make this a game. My suggestion to Georgia is to slowly rotate these guys in and out with the players who have started.

An important statistic to look at for the season is the competition that both teams have played. N.C. State and Florida are good teams who the Vols have played this season. Tennessee had the Gators on the ropes for most of that game. Florida could surprise the nation this year. Georgia has only played one decent team - Missouri. After their game against South Carolina, I'm not sure if the Dawgs have played anyone.

The strength that Georgia thinks they have might be their weakness. A defense out of synch.

Tennessee 31 Georgia 27

My question for you, Stuart is - How can anyone play at "full speed" when they don't play at all? Looks like these players (and I use that term loosely), Alec and Rambo are in a permanent time-out! 

My question for Rambo; My research tells me you accidentally ate a marijuana brownie. Just for my personal notes,  please let me know was that Betty Crocker or that fat Pillsbury Dough boy brand? (you can tweet me @Sweetfootball27)

As far as Alec Ogletree's trouble, I call total BS on this one. I can't believe he stole a scooter helmet? Unless...he ate some of Rambo's brownies and thought "Hmm, I'll take the helmet, leave the scooter and really mess someone up!"

Stuart, you want to talk important statistics, how about nine players from Georgia being suspended this season? I hope the team gets it together otherwise, Mr. Richt will be going to 3015 Lexington Road for practices (yes people, the Athens Jail House).

Sincerely,

Sweetheart
