The bad: The Bulldog defense gave up more than 400 yards for the second time in three weeks. Auburn tailbacks Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown combined for 152 yards rushing and 108 yards receiving. One of the most telling statistics is that the Bulldogs rarely pushed Auburn backward. Williams, who had 19 carries, and Brown, who had 12 carries, each lost just one yard on all their attempts, and Georgia didn't register a single sack of quarterback Jason Campbell. "Those guys (Williams and Brown) don't hardly need a lot of blocking to have great games, but when you put good blocking to it, they are very difficult to knock back," Richt said.
The injuries: Other than Brown, the Bulldogs came away from the game in good shape. Running back Tyson Browning suffered a mild ankle sprain but is expected to be ready against Georgia Tech. Tailback Danny Ware, who sat out Saturday's game due to a sprained right ankle, could have played against the Tigers had he been needed, Richt said. "I hate playing a guy that has been banged up and hardly had a snap of practice," Richt said. "As the game was going, we didn't feel like Thomas (Brown) was getting worn out by any stretch. We didn't feel like we needed to expose Danny at that time.
Notable: Although place-kicker Andy Bailey missed his only attempt Saturday very badly and is now 13 of 19 for the season, Richt has had no thoughts of replacing him, the coach said. "He had one bad swing at it," Richt said. "That's really the only kick all year long he didn't have a really fine attempt at it. I'd hate to judge the guy on just one swing."
Up next: Georgia plays Georgia Tech on Nov. 27 in Sanford Stadium.
