Georgia coach Mark Richt continues to dodge questions about when All-America free safety Bacarri Rambo -- who led the SEC and was second nationally with eight interceptions last season -- will return from suspension. If he’s out again for Saturday’s high-stakes visit to Missouri, Norman appears likely to remain in the starting lineup.
“Overall Connor did a good job,” Richt said after Saturday’s season-opening 45-23 win against Buffalo. “I can think of one play where he missed a tackle out there in space, but you know just about every safety in America is going to miss a tackle here and there when you’ve got too much space with a back.
