It’s here, it’s live, it’s Georgia football and I’m a little late. Nod to the networks for another 12:00 start leaving me without time between radio and kickoff. Hence, no pregame notes.
Georgia brilliantly blows a timeout 46 seconds into the game on a second down play. Defensively. Against Vandy. Ummm…? Then give up a 26 yard pass play but end up forcing a punt. That’s way too much to happen when I’m running late. Come on fellas.
Woooooo, Murray finally hits Kris Durham in stride after a pretty pump fake fools two defenders. 55 yard gain. Beautiful.
WOW after an incomplete pass Georgia lines up and takes another timeout. Evidently second-down plays are a bit scary today. Yikes.
Do Georgia realize you only have three timeouts per half? Because they just used another one. There’s 9:44 to go in the first quarter. #confused.
Murray misses a couple of open guys and Georgia settle for a 3-0 lead courtesy of Blair Walsh.
Christian Robinson returns a fumble all the way back for a score. Problem is, it was an incomplete pass. Student section chants something about a bull but the call was correct, receiver never had possession. Vandy punts to Logan Gray. On a related note, this is turning out to be the longest first quarter in the history of quarters.
AJ Green just dropped a pass. More confused now than when Georgia used all three timeouts after 5 minutes. It leads to a punt which took a lucky roll all the way down to the 4-yard line. SOMEHOW Ty Frix picks up a personal foul so it comes out to the 18. Extraordinarily lackluster performance thus far for the Dawgs.
3rd time today Vandy’s had a wide-open receiver down field. Getting ridiculous.
Georgia defense looks like they’ve had enough. Couple of big hits including a sack from Justin Houston which forces a punt. Georgia takes over at the 27.
Washaun Ealey busts out the first big run of the season, a 58 yarder down to the 15. Carlton Thomas follows big Ben Jones down into the end zone on the following play for an awesome 10-0 lead. 2 plays, 73 yards, 45 seconds. Boom!
Vanderbilt appear to have taken the challenge to under perform the underwhelming Dawgs and snap the ball into the endzone for a Georgia safety. #Doh! 12-0 Dawgs. By the way, it’s still the first quarter.
Georgia run the same play that gained them 55 yards with Kris Durham. This time, Vandy doesn’t fall for it so Murray scampers for 12. No big deal. End of the first. Big deal.
Picturesque drive from Georgia with shades of last years domination over Georgia Tech. Thomas and Ealey are running all over Vanderbilt and Murray caps it off with a touchdown to Kris Durham. 19-0.
Another beaut from Georgia. They’re running the ball at will, over 150 yards in the first half, and they appear to be running out the clock (which is very kind considering the first quarter). With 22 seconds left, the have to settle for another field goal to go up 21-0. AJ Green had a couple of shots at scoring, though one was ruled incomplete much to Green’s dismay and the other was well defended.
Georgia picks up right where they left off with two big plays. Kris Durham catches a floater over three defenders and somehow AJ Green found himself wide open across the middle of the field and takes it 38 yards for the touchdown. It’s amazing how one player has completely changed the offense for Georgia. Fun to watch. 29-0 Dawgs.
The Georgia offense can’t seem to do any wrong. Durham is wreaking havoc all over the field with big play after big play. He’s got 112 yards (compared to Vanderbilt’s 76) and a touchdown.
Tavarres King gets Georgia inside the ten with a(nother) big catch and Carlton Thomas flies into the end zone for his second score. Pretty sure I can hear a fat lady somewhere. 36-0 Dawgs.
Sanders Commings gets his second pick of the season on the 32 yard line. Georgia is teeing off on Vanderbilt, firing on all cylinders. Ealey gets on the board by leaping over the O-line. 43-zip. #Boom.
Hutson Mason is getting loose on the sideline. Looks like we’ll see a lot of second string in the fourth quarter which pretty much means I’m going to wrap things up. I’ll report anything crazy, but Georgia’s taking this one to the bank.
