Contain Brent Schaeffer
No one should forget that Schaeffer was one of the nation’s most highly recruited quarterbacks when he signed with Tennessee or that he started the Vols’ season-opener his first year. He’s had a bad season, but this kid has got tremendous talent and can beat you, mainly with his feet, if you let him.
Find an offensive rhythm
Georgia’s offense could use a big day, regardless of who plays quarterback. The Bulldogs have yet to play to their potential at quarterback, running back, wide receiver or the offensive line.
Make sure Brandon Coutu is healthy
Coutu has struggled for more than two weeks with a bruised quadriceps muscle in his kicking leg. He has given up kickoff duties the last two weeks, but hopes to return to that spot soon. However, Georgia should take its time with this valuable weapon and maybe even give him a break from place-kicking if the game gets out of hand.
One to watch
Coach Mark Richt has said again and again that Peach County’s A.J. Bryant is ready to break out. Tonight would be a perfect time. Bryant will need some help. He’s been open at times deep and Georgia’s quarterbacks haven’t gotten him the ball, but the bulk of the responsibility falls on him. He needs to have a game where he catches every ball that comes his way and makes something happen with at least one of them. He’s the most physically talented wide receiver on the team and could be one confidence-building game away from being an All-SEC type player.
