Quick Hitter: David Greene

A new sort of story, a quick hitter is longer than hot news, but shorter than a normal story. One of today's quick hitter comes from David Greene.

A road trip to Baton Rouge means that David Greene must put his impressive undefeated road record up against the Tigers.

"We are defiantly looking forward to the challenge (of playing at LSU). They have great athletes. This game is huge. Everyone talks about how tough it is to play at LSU. Most guys here have not been there. We are well aware of what we are getting into and we know that it is tough," said Greene.

"You can't do a lot of audibling (in Death Valley) or if you do you have to make certain that you have enough time on the clock to communicate it," said Georgia head coach Mark Richt about playing at LSU.

As good as Greene has been the last two years in Athens this season he has played better. Greene is completing a ridiculous 68% of his passes in 2003.

"I feel like I have played pretty well so far this year. But there are some things that I would like to do better. When we have gotten to third down I feel like I have made some plays to keep the chains moving. You have to keep the ball rolling," he said.

One thing that could prevent Greene from moving the chains is the loss of superstar receiver Fred Gibson. Gibson is the team's deep threat guy and a favorite target of the South Gwinnett product.

"It's going to be tough without Fred. We thought that he wouldn't play against South Carolina. It's always a plus when Fred is in there but if he is not there somebody has to step up," Greene said.

One player has elevated his play at the wide receiver position according to Greene.

"Reggie Brown has played well all year long. Coming into camp he looked like a different guy. He has been making plays. He has come out in the last 2 weeks and played unreal. When Fred went down we needed someone to go to and Reggie was our guy," said Greene.
