Dawgs boot Vandy: Three Keys Revisited

ATHENS - Josh Kendall reviews his three keys to Georgia's game with Vanderbilt.

Play with emotion

It's hard to say Georgia passed this test after getting an early touchdown and still letting Vanderbilt run out to a 17-7 lead. Until Darryl Gamble forced a Cassen Jackson-Garrison fumble in the final three minutes, Georgia players admitted they were having a familiar sinking feeling. Maybe making their own breaks in the final moments will light a fire.

Throw to Demiko Goodman

Goodman caught two passes for 31 yards and had other opportunities that didn't work out. Overall, the Bulldogs spread the ball around beautifully. Tony Wilson led the way with four catches, and eight other Georgia players caught passes.

Hit someone

Rod Battle did that in the first quarter, forcing a Jeff Jennings' fumble that led to the Bulldogs' first touchdown. Gamble can hardly be credited with a powerful blow on the play in which he forced Jackson-Garrison to fumble, but he did make a play that was desperately needed.
