Vandy QB is Doubtful

ATHENS - Vanderbilt quarterback Patton Robinette is “doubtful,” for Saturday after sustaining a concussion against South Carolina on Sept. 20, coach Derek Mason said Tuesday.

That means true freshman Wade Freebeck is likely to make his second straight start.

Freebeck has completed 42.6 percent of his passes with a touchdown and five interceptions and was sacked four times in a 17-7 loss to Kentucky Saturday.

“What we have to do is keep him upright and give him options,” Mason said. “If teams want to zero blitz us (no safety support in coverage), we'll make teams pay for zero blitzes. I'm tired of seeing it. With that being the case, whatever team wants to bring a zero blitz, whoever they are, they are going to pay for it. We have zero blitz answers. For him, we'll do a better job of putting him in situations where it allows him to have rhythm throws and to get it out of his hands and into the hands of our playmakers.

  This and that

Conley was particularly pumped about how Georgia’s throwing and catching went on Tuesday. “There was no holding back. The ball was being gunned by everyone. It wasn’t just being gunned by Hutson but was gunned by Brice and Faton in the second unit. They were launching it and making receivers go get it.

Freshman offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn lined up as an extra blocking tight end Saturday. “I’m not  sure we’re going to have him out on too many routes,” tight end Jay Rome said. “We might have him on a trick play or something. Keep a lookout for that.”
