As the Georgia Bulldogs prepare for their Week 1 matchup against the Buffalo Bulls, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is prepared to deal with a shuffling lineup as they prepare to deal with multiple suspensions with the starting defense.
In an interview with Marc Weizer of the Atlanta Banner-Herald, Grantham knows no matter what happens, the team have to move forward no matter what,
"The thing I look at is the season’s not going to stop, the team we’re playing is not going to feel sorry for us," Grantham said. "It’s how you make the best of the situation."
With starters Chase Vasser and Sanders Commings suspended for the first two games of the season along with fellow starters Bacarri Rambo and Alec Ogletree expected to be suspended to start the year, Grantham will have to play musical chairs to begin the year, but he has plenty of experience from the last year.
Due to injuries and suspensions, Grantham was forced to use 13 different starting lineups last year, only having the same defense just twice all season. With Commings and Vassar gone for the first two games, Grantham is ready to move things around when they are eligible to play again.
