"Losing Demetris Summers like we did definitely affected our ability to run the football ... Georgia did a lot of things up front on defense. They were moving all the time. I thought a few times we lost our poise and confidence along the offensive line, but you've got to give Georgia credit ... Their secondary tackled extremely well. It seemed like every mistake that was made was due to a hard hit. They put a hard hit on Dondrial (Pinkins) and he fumbled and Marcus Lawrence put a hard hit on their back and he fumbled. It was a very hard-hitting game ... Our team was hurting as much after that game as any of our teams have since we've been here. We were all very disappointed and we were all hurting ... To win the close games, you've got to do the little things the right way. I've got 31 plays I want to show them on Monday that illustrate why it's important to do the little things ... We got hurt some on field position in the second half and we had a hard time overcoming that ... (on the fake field goal attempt): We gave some thought to kicking it, but we thought the fake would work. The officials called off-setting penalties. I still haven't figured that out yet. I've never seen a call like that one. He (Charlie Carpenter) just didn't hit the field goal well at all. He had been in practice during the week. Maybe the game field is longer; I don't know ... (on the suspensions of Noah Whiteside and Travis Lee) We'll have to address (their status) this week."
