The big news at Georgia's spring game Saturday was the first look at new DC Todd Grantham and his shiny new 3-4 front. How did it go, Georgia defensive players?
Bacarri Rambo: "We didn’t use none of our plays today. We were just in our base stuff. We’ve still got a lot to learn, but we’ve improved. Day 1, guys were like, ‘We’re never going to get this.’ But now we know what we’re doing. Now everybody’s got to go out there and communicate. That’s the biggest thing we’ve got to improve at.”
Jakar Hamilton: “They haven’t seen none of the defense. This was none of it. That’s just the basics. There’s so much to this defense that we have in store, so to the fans, we’ve got a lot that’s coming and that we’re putting in. So, SEC, be ready.”
Kind of a buzzkill -- but maybe when they finally do make the switch, they'll keep secondary coach Scott Lakatos's innovative new "stay within five yards of your guy and actually know where the ball is whilst doing so" coverage scheme, which, after five years of Willie Martinez "Widespread Panic Dancer" defenses in Athens probably looked like the black monolith at the beginning of "2001" to Georgia's beleaguered fan base. Also, the "black" team wore white jerseys, which is sad and adorable at the same time, because when is Georgia ever, ever going to break out those black jerseys again?
