Georgia vs. Tennessee from the sidelines
Tennessee sits their recruits on the front edge of the endzone and their faces during and after the game were needless to say very long. But the faces of the Tennessee Girls that accompanied them were even longer. --- Brian VanGorder was held back by Jon Fabris after a personal foul penalty for the 2nd week in a row. --- Apparently Knox County deputies had nothing better to do during half time than bark at UGA VI, who was near the Georgia locker room. --- Another note on UGA VI is that his handlers do not like to get him around Smokey, Tennessee's mascot, because of UGA VI's aggressive nature around other animals. --- Mark Richt gave the thumbs up sign and then the number one sign to the Georgia section of the crowd at the end of the game. In the press conference following the game he went on and on about how important the Redcoat Band is to the team. One of the few games that the Redcoats have not been to lately was Georgia's 17-10 loss to LSU. --- Michael Johnson, whose touchdown in the 1st half put the Dawgs up 10-0, leveled a Tennessee defender at the start of the game. But Johnson got up after knocking the player to the ground and ran right back to the huddle. He said nothing to the Vol player; it was business as usual for him. --- This was one of the most physical games that I have seen in a while. It was clear before and after the fight that the teams were hitting particularly hard. The fight in the second half was not the only fight of the game, however. In Tennessee's first possession, receiver James Banks and Georgia cornerback Bruce Thornton got into a skirmish. Banks punched Thornton in the helmet and Thornton retaliated with a right jab. A penalty was not called on the play. --- On more than one occasion, Tennessee players were throwing their helmets while returning to the sideline from the field of play in the 2nd half.
