He isn't flinching from going back there.
While it was a good night for the quarterback, star running back Mark Walton didn't quite have it so easy.
Virginia Tech went 5-1 at home last season, the first for Justin Fuente as the Hokies head coach. During halftime I didn't need to go over there and see the defensive players. In fact, Georgia has only claimed 2 conference titles in the last 35 years (though still 2nd to only Alabama in the SEC in overall conference championships).
"It was as bad of an offensive performance as I've ever been a part of, and it's inexcusable", said Tennessee coach Butch Jones, who is 6-17 against ranked opponents. The Bulldogs took a 7-0 lead two minutes into the game on a 59-yard flea-flicker, scored again on their next possession and never let the other Bulldogs back in the game.
Georgia is 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS this season after mauling Mississippi State last week 31-3, easily covering a three-point spread. It's just a blessing for me to be able to run and play like I always have been.
Jones called Chubb "impressive" from what he's seen on game film.
"Well, first of all, everyone should hurt", Jones said. Though he broke off a few nice runs throughout the evening, he finished with just 51 yards on the ground and was injured in the fourth quarter that saw him limp off with a leg injury. He runs behind his pad level.
The Volunteers will play with a great deal of cohesion. 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. He is 33-23 at Tennessee and coming off back to back nine win seasons.
"Butch Jones is our coach and going to be our coach for a long time", then-athletic director Dave Hart said in December 2014. Each of the last five games in this series has been decided by seven points or less, including a Georgia overtime victory in 2013 and a Tennessee triumph on a Hail Mary pass last season. Sony Michel carried 11 times for 64 yards and Elijah Holyfield, son of the former heavyweight champ, rambled for 51 yards on seven attempts. "No one on that team roots against Nick Chubb and that everybody wanted to do well for him shows how important he is to our team". It was just a bad, rough day for Tennessee football.
"Every position is up for look in the bye week", Jones said after the game. With Sony Michele and D'Andre Swift combining for almost 400 yards, the depth at the position is one of the best in the country. If there's a team that can challenge Alabama in the SEC, this is it.
Penn State received a scare from a solid Iowa team last week in Iowa, but managed to pull out a 21-19 victory, albeit as 13-point chalk, thanks to a last second touchdown pass from Trace McSorley to Juwan Johnson. All four backs have a different style.
That makes us.500 for the season, and well, you all know how I feel about losing after last week's article. Especially for Nick if he's not getting worn down so far.
