NASHVILLE - Josh Kendall's three keys to Georiga's game with Vanderbilt.

Play with emotion

Georgia’s players and coaches have acknowledged that Tennessee simply came out more enthused last week. A change in the Bulldogs’ attitude might not have changed the outcome of the game, but it sure would have made for more interesting competition. So far, this team waits for motivation rather than providing its own.

Throw to Demiko Goodman

Mark Richt has been begging for one of his receivers to make plays, and Goodman is doing it at a far higher rate than his position mates. It seems strange that Goodman is not starting, but he will get more and earlier chances this week. That is, if Matthew Stafford throws him the ball.

Hit someone

Georgia’s defense has little of the exuberance that the best units of the Richt era have displayed. The Bulldogs’ tacklers are mostly dragging people to the ground rather than making any significant contact. Take a chance this week, go for the big hit. The results can’t be any worse than last week’s game.

One to watch

Offensive tackle Trinton Sturdivant had what seemed to be his worst game yet at Tennessee. Three penalties and multiple missed blocks gave Georgia’s offense little chance to get anything started. Sturdivant is a true freshman playing the second-toughest offensive position in football, but he should be getting better. So far, that hasn’t been the case. If he plays as poorly as he did against Tennessee again, it will be tough to believe the Bulldogs don’t have a better option at that position.
