Rushing Into Things
Dave McMahon -- How has practice been going?
Kregg Lumpkin -- It has been going good. We are learning a lot about Virginia Tech's defense.
DM -- Georgia is not in a BCS bowl, but at least they are playing in Atlanta...
KL -- I love playing in Atlanta. It is a lot of fun. We always have great fans there and I hope I can do well and get a 'W'.
DM -- Do you remember your first game in the dome?
KL -- I was a freshman and it was against LSU in the SEC Championship and I remember dropping a pass down the middle.
DM -- Last year you had a 34-yard TD run, that is your longest run of your career, why is there not a longer run?
KL -- I don't know why I haven't had a longer one. I know the SEC has a lot of speed on defense and I know I don't have the home run speed anymore, but maybe I can do other things to go longer.
DM -- This year Georgia had a crowded backfield, next season it appears to be even more crowded, how are the team going divide runs then?
KL -- We will do what we did this season. Who ever the best players will get the ball. Who ever has the best production and the best practices will get it.
DM -- You caught more passes this season, is that another way for you to get some touches?
KL -- I will do anything. I will run, catch and block. I will do anything for a win.
DM -- What is the deal with all the touchdowns that Brannan Southerland has scored?
KL -- He is a work-horse. He blocks for us and gets us down there. I don't mind if he scores as long as he scores.
DM -- Tell me about Virginia Tech's defense...
KL -- They are very fast and very physical. They remind me of Auburn in a way.
DM -- We haven't seen Knowshon Moreno yet, which of you 3 backs is he most like?
KL -- He is mixture of Thomas Brown's and Danny Ware's speed. I am more like a power slug.
