Bulldogs want to make opponents ‘earn it’

ATHENS - Georgia defense not happy with points scored on them.

Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt’s reaction after his unit gave up touchdown passes on back to back drives Saturday was exactly what you would expect, according to cornerback Aaron Davis.

“He wasn’t happy and neither were we,” said Davis, who missed a tackle on one short pass that went for 11 yards. “That’s something we definitely want to get rid of, improve on and correct because I really felt like that was something that could be avoided. Even if they make one big play or something like that we have to cut that loose and kill the drive and force them to a field goal so they don’t put seven points on the board every time.”

Louisiana-Monroe wideout Rashon Ceaser was named Sun Belt Conference offensive player of the week Monday after setting career highs with 13 catches for 153 yards and the two touchdowns against in the Georgia win.

Quarterback Garrett Smith completed 23 of 29 passes for 206 yards. He threw a 22 yard touchdown over inside linebacker Tim Kimbrough and a 29-yard scoring strike in which freshman defensive back Rico McGraw was closest to the receiver.
