No Blackout This Time

ATHENS - Unlike last year, Georgia's first matchup with a ranked team won't involve a blackout.


Georgia's fifth game last season came with plenty of hype, with a top-10 opponent coming into town and the Bulldogs donning black jerseys as part of a planned "blackout."

Once again, Georgia welcomes a top-10 team to Sanford Stadium for Week 5, but there won't be any festivities surrounding the uniform to go along with LSU's visit.

"I don't think we'd do a black jersey or black helmet, we wouldn't do a blackout of any kind unless we got the fans into it," Richt said. "I don't think it's worth doing a blackout without it."


Freshman defensive end Montez Robinson had seen little action during the first three games of the year, but was on the field for a few extra snaps last week against Arizona State.

That's a trend that defensive coordinator Willie Martinez said could continue, and if Robinson keeps progressing at the same rate, Georgia's defensive ends could become a lot more dangerous as the season goes along.

"He's getting better and better," Martinez said. "He's learning the system, and he's a great athlete. And we need it. We need that push. He did some nice stuff. He's learning it, and he's got the ability, so that's a good thing to see."
