Georgia Vs. Buffalo: Connor Norman Ready To Step Up In Place Of Bacarri Rambo

When the Georgia Bulldogs take the field on Saturday against the Buffalo Bulls, they could be without All-American safety Bacarri Rambo, who violated UGA's drug policy in the spring. If Rambo is sidelined for the Sept. 1 opener -- and beyond -- there will be a lot of pressure on whomever is chosen to replace him.

So far, it seems that either Corey Moore or Connor Norman will have their number called to fill in for Rambo, although it appears that Norman is the most likely candidate at this point. And according to a Macon.com report, the 5-foot-10, 208-pound Norman is prepared and ready for the challenge:

"Actually, I prepared a lot for that last year, too, just due to certain circumstances," Norman said.

Last year, Norman played in every game, finishing with 13 tackles. This time around, it doesn't feel too different for Norman, other than being a bit more comfortable with having played. But as far as the possibility of playing the opener, that's not very different.

"Everybody actually knows who I am now," Norman said, laughing.
