Georgia has some scores to settle with Tennessee

01 Octubre 2017, 05:08 | Cornelio Vivanco

After 1 season fans weren't thrilled as Georgia scuttled to a 7-5 record and while Smart tried to handle things similar to what Saban has at Alabama it was a rude awakening for the players (no player is safe in Smart's eyes) and the fans (Smart was somewhat similar with his press conferences to Saban where it rubs people the wrong way). He wasn't great against Arkansas last Saturday, but showed why he was such a highly-rated dual-threat quarterback coming out of high school, tossing for 216 yards and two touchdowns, while adding 79 more yards on the ground as well. Jones spoke about some of the challenges that the talented Bulldogs present on both sides of the ball.

Here are our biggest observations from the Vols' 41-0 loss to Georgia.

Unfortunately, starting quarterback Quinten Dormady just wasn't up to the task. Dormady finished 5 of 16 passing for 64 yards and two interceptions, and the running game couldn't get going. "Jumper really did a good job as a pass blitzer the other day, and (linebacker Elliott) Berry did, too".

Tennessee's defense had some success early in the second quarter, but the offensive line woke up and began to dominate the line of scrimmage.

This game was effectively over from the first snap. Still, the Tennessee offensive scheme has issues with incorporating its playmakers in the offense.

On offense, the Vols have struggled to find their man at quarterback this season. And you kind of felt, just like last week, the game was over right then and there.

After fighting back against Georgia Tech in Week 1, there was enough optimism around the Tennessee program to think that 9-4 was in the cards again this season.

That streak ended on Saturday. Also, Tennessee just struggled mightily with the 0-5 MA team. It needed overtime to win in its previous trip, 34-31 during a string of five straight Georgia wins in the series.

The Volunteers recorded seven sacks in a 17-13 victory over MA last week for their highest single-game total since 2008. Gaining only seven yards in three plays, UGA had to settle for a 38-yard Rodrigo Blankenship field goal, putting the visitors up 3-0 with 13:37 to go in the opening stanza. They need to decide whether to stick with Dormady or give Guarantano more playing time.

Even when Tennessee would do something right, Georgia's defense would make it do something wrong. The score of that game?

This time, it was a cameo appearance while dealing with an ankle injury. Going into this game, it starts in practice. Callaway didn't have a reception, and Brandon Johnson finished with zero catches as well.

In the second quarter, Georgia utilized the run game, beginning with an 87-yard march down the field on 11 plays.

Tennessee (3-2, 0-2) not only failed to score for the first time in 23 years, but turned the ball over five times and totaled just 125 yards. But they might as well be. If Tennessee opens its SEC schedule with losses to division rivals Florida and Georgia, it's hard to imagine the Volunteers working their way back into East title contention.

The Vols didn't exactly bounce back after their disheartening loss at Florida a couple of weeks ago, but they did hold on to beat MA last week 17-13.
