Bacarri Rambo tries to shake rust
By Radi Nabulsi
All-American safety Bacarri Rambo missed Georgia’s first four games of the season due to violating team rules. He suited up against Tennessee and South Carolina, playing with mixed results as he himself readily admits.
“I still left some plays out there on the field,” Rambo said. “I need to do better. I got a little rusty.”
That rust was most apparent in the second play of the game against the Gamecocks when he allowed what appeared to be a certain interception to be ripped from his arms by South Carolina’s Damiere Byrd.
“I still was [rusty] last week, but now I am over it,” Rambo said. “That is the thing about playing defensive back; you have to have amnesia. You have to forget about the goods and the bads.”
Rambo said he is looking forward to Kentucky and facing the Wildcats’ La’Rod King. His body just needs to catch up to his mind.
“I just feel like I am a little rusty, not mentally put physically,” Rambo said. “My timing is off but my mind is in the right place.”
