The Good, The Bad, The Notable from Saturday

Josh Kendall takes a look at The Good, The Bad, The Notable, and The Injuries from Saturday's Game.

THE GOOD: The Bulldogs used their no-huddle offense for the first time all season against Kentucky and rolled up 442 yards, their second-best total of season, trailing only the 467 they gained against Middle Tennessee State. Coach Mark Richt loves the no-huddle and would run it all the time if he could, but the Bulldogs didn't have enough healthy receivers or experienced linemen to do it until Saturday, he said. Georgia ran 84 offensive plays, 20 more than the Wildcats, and averaged 5.3 yards per play.

 "I think it was good," Richt said. "I think that we got out of it about what we wanted to get out of it. We missed a couple code names and signals, but overall it was worth it. Whether or not we will do it again, I don't know."

THE BAD: Georgia's offensive linemen still didn't look very experienced Saturday. Quarterback David Greene was sacked four times and at least five of his 14 incompletions came when he had to throw the ball away due to heavy pressure.

"A lot of those negative yardage plays were a freshman going the wrong way or somebody just getting whipped," Richt said. Kentucky players had 10 tackles for loss, prompting Richt to suggest that the Bulldogs had done a world of good for Wildcat Vincent Burns' NFL prospects.

THE INJURIES: The Bulldogs got through their second straight game without a significant injury on Saturday. Guard Josh Brock aggravated a shoulder injury in the first half but is expected to be ready for the Georgia Tech game. Richt also said that safety Sean Jones should play against the Yellow Jackets, but he had the same hope last week and Jones didn't dress for the Kentucky game. Guard Bartley Miller remains very questionable with a shoulder injury. Defensive tackle Kedric Golston has said twice in the last week that he won't be ready until at least Dec. 6, but Richt indicated the Bulldogs will give him a look this week.

"We're going to work him (today)," Richt said. "We'll see how he tolerates everything. We'll try to phase him in." Wide receiver Michael Johnson sprained his ankle but is probable.

NOTABLE: The Bulldogs will deviate from their normal practice schedule this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Georgia will hold its normal afternoon practices today and Tuesday. Wednesday's session hasn't been scheduled yet, but it probably will be earlier in the day since school is not in session that day. The Bulldogs will then practice Thanksgiving morning before the players are released. Georgia's players will reconvene for a light workout Friday. Usually, the team does very little, if any, physical activity on Fridays.

"You tend to have to move around a little bit after eating all that turkey," Richt said. "You could certainly lose your mental edge because of the holidays."

   QUOTABLE: " "I told (the Bulldogs) they were getting an opportunity to do something that a Georgia team hasn't done in 40 years -- play a big rival, the last rival, with an SEC Championship on the line." -- Georgia athletic director Vince Dooley.

UP NEXT: Georgia's next game won't be determined until all of Saturday's action is over. The Bulldogs could be playing either LSU or Ole Miss in the SEC Championship game in Atlanta on Dec. 6, or they could be off until their bowl game, which hasn't been determined yet.
