Merry Go Round on OL Again

ATHENS – It was just three weeks ago that left tackle Clint Boling took a big sigh of relief and complimented the offensive line on finally starting to gel. When he came off the practice field Monday, however, Boling was back to playing dumb about who might be starting next to him this week.

Right tackle Justin Anderson will miss Saturday's game against Auburn with a foot injury, and once again Georgia's offensive line finds itself in a state of flux.

"It's definitely a little bit frustrating, but as long as we have five guys, I think we'll be alright," Boling said. "Until we have less than five guys to play, (only) then will we be in trouble."

Just who those five guys will be and where they will be playing remains a mystery – one Boling isn't at liberty to solve, he said.

Head coach Mark Richt didn't provide many answers either.

"I don't know what we're going to do," Richt said. "We're just not sure yet."

Josh Davis, who started Georgia's first game at right tackle, filled in for Anderson in the latter stages against Kentucky, but Richt said Tanner Strickland or Kiante Tripp could play there as well. Freshman Cordy Glenn could also move from left guard to right tackle, Richt said, but that would simply open up a hole at his previous position.

"There's a good chance just about every one of them son-of-a-guns is going to play, but we just don't know how they're going to line up yet," Richt said.

Anderson, who could return in time for the Georgia Tech game Nov. 29, will be the fourth starting lineman to miss a game this season, and eight different players have started at least one game on the line, not including Trinton Sturdivant, who was the projected starter at left tackle but injured his knee in fall camp.

"It just seems like each week something else happens, but there's nothing really you can do about it," Boling said. "You've just got to keep playing."
