Georgia and Florida will vie for first place in the SEC East race this Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla. With a win, the Gators will clinch the East and Georgia will fall to third place. A Bulldogs' victory would be the program’s biggest win in years. With the stakes this high, our readers have many questions they want answered. Here are a few of them:

Darrell Walker/Icon SMIChristian Robinson wasn't a big fan of Shawn Williams' comments on the defense Monday.
jeverett10: I just saw the article about how the defense needs to toughen up and the comments from Christian Robinson. What are the coaches and other players saying about "THE RANT" which, in my opinion, was gone about totally wrong in aspects? But I honestly can’t fault Shawn Williams for saying what he did.

Radi Nabulsi: jeverett10 is referring to Williams addressing reporters on Monday when he called the Bulldogs’ defense soft and stated that linebackers Alec Ogletree and Amarlo Herrera should never come off the field because they hit hard. Our own David Ching had a response from defensive coordinator Todd Grantham here and responses from many of Williams’ teammates here. I spoke to Garrison Smith and Herrera and they both believed that Williams’ comments would provide a spark to the defense. Robinson and Mike Gilliard took offense to hearing that Herrera should play more in their place, but Williams did get a chance to explain his comments to the defense at Tuesday’s practice.
