Lessons in Vanderbilt Football: Georgia

Every reasonable person outside the Vanderbilt locker room knew Georgia was almost certainly going to win and win comfortably over the rebuilding Commodores. However, the 35-0 score line to end the first quarter was a shock to almost as many people.

Georgia gained 206 yards in the quarter, but they started drives at the Vanderbilt 49, Georgia 37, Vanderbilt 4, Vanderbilt 21, and Georgia 29. Poor punts, a fumbled kickoff return, an interception, and a frozen offense were a recipe for short scores. The Bulldogs were taking advantage.

To that point, Kirby Smart seemed to share (to a lesser extent) the Georgia fans’ vitriol about last season’s cancelation.
