ATHENS, Ga. -- Quite a few of Georgia’s committed prospects were in town to watch the Bulldogs game against the Buffalo Bulls, others caught the telecast. The home crowd left mostly happy with the 45-23 victory, but most did not expect the Bulls to give Georgia as much trouble as they did in the second quarter. The defense made adjustments, freshman Todd Gurley took off and the natural order was restored -- at least the way Georgia fans see it. DawgNation wanted to know what those prospects thought of the game.
WR Rico Johnson (Swainsboro, Ga./Swainsboro): “I liked everything about the game. The guys got after it and I noticed they kept the defense simple. The secondary could have been a little bit better.”
OL Brandon Kublanow (Marietta, Ga./Walton): “I loved the atmosphere and everyone there. The team played great. I know they feel they have work to do to win it all. If I could change anything it would be to have air conditioning throughout the stadium. Other than that it was perfect. Go Dawgs!
LB Shaun McGee (Snellville, Ga./ Brookwood): “I thought we had a bad first half. I don’t think Buffalo should have been able to hang with us that long. But in the second half we played Georgia football. The defense was looking good and so was the offense. Todd Gurley did his thing, too.”
CB Shaq Wiggins (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek): “It was a good way to start the season. I think both sides of the ball looked good but work always needs to be done. We just have to touch up on some things in practice. Todd Gurley really stood out to me. I like how the corners played and how the defense started to pick things up. But overall I say we finished with a good game and a grade of B.”
OL Josh Cardiello (Buford, Ga./Buford): “I thought Georgia looked good and a lot better in the second half. Todd Gurley put on a show. And for having some inexperience on the offensive line, they looked good.”
S Nick Glass (Atlanta, Ga./Saint Pius X): “Georgia looked good on defense. The secondary looked OK but that’s just because of the two starters that were out.”
