Secondary Envious of Dobbs' INT

ATHENS – Prince Miller said he hasn't heard any trash talk from defensive end Demarcus Dobbs, following Dobbs' 78-yard interception return for a touchdown Saturday. After all, it was Miller who tipped the ball to Dobbs setting up the big run.

Still, it has to eat at the defensive backs that neither of Georgia's two picks so far this year have been made by defensive backs.

"We're playing teams and they're not throwing them out there or some people are dropping them, I don't know what it is right now," Miller said of the secondary's shortcomings in the turnover department.

One thing is certain, Miller said. The Bulldogs will have to start getting a few more takeaways as the season progresses.

"Defense, you have to have turnovers,"Miller said. "It's a way to grab momentum during the game. It's just something you need as a defense."

There have been a few chances for the defensive backs, but the bounces haven't gone their way.

"I just think when opportunities came, we weren't able to capitalize as much as we should," cornerback Asher Allen said.

And while Allen said he's happy to win a game any way possible, the image of Dobbs – the 280-pound lineman – running into the end zone following an interception is definitely nagging at him.

"We can't have a D-lineman taking it to the house and not us," Allen said, "so we're going to work on that."
