Georgia football delivers an early knock out blow in rout of Tennessee

Tennessee broke out the checkerboard design in the stands at Neyland Stadium on Saturday as they hosted No. 7 Georgia.

If you want to focus on one play to sum up the futility present throughout Tennessee's 41-0 loss to Georgia on Saturday afternoon inside a sold-out, checkerboarded Neyland Stadium, that third-quarter turnover by the Volunteers' best running back would be as good as any. It doesn't matter. No team cares what you did last week. From scoring pass went to Javon Wims and covered 12 yards, extending the Bulldogs' early lead to 10-0.

The Bulldogs got more good news in the fourth quarter when quarterback Jacob Eason made his first appearance since spraining his left knee in the season opener. Jones is 2-0 against Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart in his career, but the Vols haven't played this talented of a Georgia team in a long time.

Georgia dominated Tennessee for four quarters and in every facet of the game.

Tennessee lost that game 16-15 and fell to 3-4 on that season. Shoop, in his second season with the Vols, has played Georgia as defensive coordinator at Penn State and Vanderbilt, and as a the defensive backs coach at Boston College in 2001.

"Everything", Jones said. "Everything in our program will be looked at from A to Z".

The heartbreaking loss to Florida two weeks ago was explainable too, even if Tennessee could have and should have won the game in regulation with better execution.

Meanwhile, the Georgia defense held Mississippi State dual-threat QB Nick Fitzgerald to just 130 total yards and picked him off twice.

With playing future uncertain, Woods relishes Presidents Cup role
The first five of 30 points available at the Presidents Cup are up for grabs on Thursday during the foursomes session. Jack Nicklaus believes the Presidents Cup is close to gaining the level of prestige afforded to the Ryder Cup.

But according to senior linebacker Lorenzo Carter, getting production out of McGhee should not be a problem going forward.

The Bulldogs got 294 yards on the ground from Nick Chubb, Sony Michel & Co while holding the Vols to just 62. "That's something we need to take care of inside the team, I guess".

"It's loud, loud, loud", Smart said. Coat the ribs one more time in the sauce and pour the excess sauce into a dish for extra dipping and chow down!

As for Tennessee, the second half was just more of what happened in the first two quarters.

However, the talented stable of Georgia running backs have been key to Fromm's consistent play.

"Well, first of all, everyone should hurt", Jones said.

There would be no frantic finishes or dramatic comebacks in the latest edition of the Georgia-Tennessee rivalry.

Tennessee RB John Kelly vs. Georgia run defense: Kelly has rushed for 450 yards to lead the SEC and has gained over 100 yards in each of Tennessee's three games with FBS opponents. Before the injury, Chubb averaged 7.4 yards per carry and scored 21 touchdowns over 19 games. But they have good defensive players and we'll learn from them. Tennessee is tied for first first nationally in passing-down sack rate, recording a sack on 17.5 percent of all passing downs, according to Bill Connelly of SB Nation. I'll share audio of what Shoop said about the Bulldogs this week, and address whether his comments demonstrate a UGA offense that's turned a corner.
