Richt: Look out for Lorenzen

Now, four years after the phenomenon that is Jared Lorenzen jumped onto the scene, Mark Richt and the rest of the Georgia Bulldogs must find a way to stop the super sized quarterback. If they can stop Lorenzen, Georgia will share at least share SEC East Division Title and they will also keep their hopes alive of defending their SEC crown in December.

"Simulating Lorenzen is the most difficult thing that we are dealing with," said the head coach. "The closest thing that we have to simulating him is Max Jean-Gilles or David Pollack. And neither of them can throw the ball very well."

But Lorenzen can; the Dawgs know that from the way that he has thrown on them in the last three contests between the Cats and Dawgs.

He has thrown for over 1,000 yards in three contests against Georgia.

Georgia's defense of the SEC East will depend on the game with Kentucky. Even though the Cats lost to Vanderbilt last weekend Richt says that the Cats are still capable of upending the Dawgs' championship dreams.

"Kentucky is capable of beating anyone at anytime," said Richt noting the Cats' play against both Arkansas and Florida.

Kentucky may have played well in big games before this weekend but they have not been able to spring the upset. Georgia hopes that the Cats are unable to do that for the rest of the season. Should the Wildcats beat either Georgia or Tennessee the Bulldogs would be prevented from defending their SEC Championship in Atlanta.

Lorenzen's yearly stats against Georgia:

2001 54 32 2 377 3
