Dave McMahon -- Right now, the Georgia defense is ranked #1 in the nation, but this is Tennessee coming up... tell me about them...
Tra Battle -- They have a lot of big guys with a lot of speed. Their backs are bruisers. Two of the backs are freshmen and we haven't seen them yet, but they look good.
DM -- I talked to Kelin Johnson the other day and he wasn't happy how the safties were playing... what are your thoughts?
TB -- We have nowhere near reached our potential especially in the last 2 games. We need to get better.
DM -- You don't have an interception this season yet, how close have you been?
TB -- I dropped an opportunity vs South Carolina and another one last week.
DM -- What one part must the defense improve on?
TB -- Tackles. We have a lot of missed tackles.
DM -- Is there extra pressure on the defense this season since the offense has struggled so much?
TB -- I don't think so. They are like us. They haven't lived up to their potential.
DM -- Is this week being a night game helps?
TB -- It helps me because I can watch more film.
DM -- Thank you for your time and your answers.
