ATHENS – This summer, though still three games away from a football standpoint, will be different…
Let's Get It Started
Dave McMahon -- You had a lot more playing time last week vs Kentucky, must have made you feel good...
Danny Verdun-Wheeler -- As long as I can contribute. If the coach puts me on special teams instead and I can contribute, fine. I just want Georgia to win. I want the coaches to put the best guys on the field.
DM -- How hard has it been the last few weeks?
DVW -- It has been very hard. I have never experienced losing on any level.
DM -- You don't get a break with Auburn either?
DVW -- You know they won't overlook us. It is a rivalry and it is always a tough game.
DM -- How much did you know about the rivalry when you came here?
DVW -- I heard a lot about Auburn, Florida and Georgia Tech. Those games are always big. Each year we have played Auburn it has been very tough.
DM -- What makes their running back Kenny Irons so special?
DVW -- His heart. He just wants to run over you and score.
DM -- What about Brandon Cox?
DVW -- He doesn't make mistakes anymore. Last year at times he played a little scared, but not now... the Auburn offense doesn't let him. They execute great.
DM -- You are a senior now, what do you remember about your first day of practice during your freshman year?
DVW -- I was like... how am I going to compete with these guys. I just watched these guys play in the Sugar Bowl and now I was playing with them. It was crazy.
DM -- How do you want to be remembered as a Georgia player?
DVW -- As a hard worker. Someone you can always trust. Someone that would stay positive.
DM -- Thank you for your time and answers.
