Quick Hitters: Greg Blue

Blue has changed his game from an all out hitting parade to a more disciplined approach to playing in the secondary.

"That's my game. I love hitting," said one of the most featured punishers in secondaries around the SEC.

"The coaches, they don't want me to bite on the coverages. Now I am getting better about that. I am not biting on everything but I love hitting; that's my game," said Georgia's Greg Blue.

Blue has changed his game from an all out hitting parade to a more disciplined approach to playing in the secondary. He was forced to do that due to the amount of injuries that the Dawgs suffered earlier this season.

"Focusing and studying film hard," says Blue of why his game has become more disciplined and improved. "That puts me in position to make plays."

"During the game I was shocked that they did not run the ball," said Blue of the Tiger's apparent lack of confidence in the running game. After all two years ago it was Auburn's Tommy Tuberville that said that Georgia head coach Mark Richt would need to learn how to run the ball in order to win in the SEC.

The Tigers managed only 81 yards rushing on 25 carries; a below average performance for Auburn.

"We were shocked. On first down they were throwing the ball. It shocked me. But we prepared for both the run and the pass and we were hoping to get them in 3rd and long and that we could shut them down a little bit," Blue said.

"Our defense is good but we need to keep it up for the whole year. If we can keep it up the whole year then I can say that we are great," Blue added.

I don't think that saying that the Georgia defense is great right now would be too much of a stretch.
