THE GOOD: Georgia's young backs -- Tyson Browning and Kregg Lumpkin -- are starting to mature just in time. After watching film from Saturday's game, Coach Mark Richt came away most impressed with Browning, who carried the ball 13 times for 47 yards and caught two passes for 22 yards.
"Right now Tyson is in the lead (to start against Tennessee),"
Richt said. "Tyson made some outstanding runs and some outstanding
catches. He's really made the most improvement to this point."
led Georgia on Saturday with 55 yards on 14 carries. He graded his
effort at "85 or 90 percent." "I think Lumpkin did
outstanding with the
opportunities he had," Richt said.
THE BAD: Richt confirmed that junior running back Tony Milton is
probably done for the season due to a calcium deposit below his left
leg. "It doesn't look real good for Tony," Richt said. "I don't
he can get any better without surgery right now. There's a chance we
have to go in that direction before he can play again for us. I don't
think we'll see him again anytime soon."
Milton has started each of the
three games he played this season, including Saturday, but he carried
the ball just four times for 5 yards against the Crimson Tide. He has 25
carries for 82 yards overall.
THE UGLY: Georgia whipped Alabama on Saturday despite 11 penalties for
99 yards. Seven of the Bulldogs' penalties came during the first half
when they were rolling up 37 points against the Crimson Tide.
has hurt itself all season with errors. It entered Saturday's game 10th
in the SEC in penalties at 73.5 yards per game. The Bulldogs have now
been flagged 49 times for 393 yards.
THE INJURIES: Richt said Sunday he thinks all of the Bulldogs' injured
players except Milton and wide receiver Sean Bailey (hamstring) probably
will play against Tennessee. Offensive tackle Daniel Inman (ankle),
offensive guard Josh Brock (shoulder), defensive tackle Ken Veal
(ankle), defensive end Quentin Moses (elbow) and wide receiver Reggie Brown (hamstring) may miss today's practice and possibly Tuesday.
Running back Michael Cooper, linebacker Arnold Harrison (ankle) and
offensive tackle Max Jean-Gilles (knee bruise) should be ready to go
full speed today.
NOTABLE: Place-kicker Billy Bennett moved to second in scoring in team
history on Saturday. Bennett had 13 points (three FGs, four PATs) and
now has 325 for his career. He passed former running back Herschel
Walker, who had 314 points in his three-year career. Former kicker Kevin
Butler is Georgia's career leader with 353 points.
QUOTABLE: "I've got to just make myself hammer the ball more than I
did. I've just got to be more patient." -- Georgia coach Mark Richt
