Coaching carousels create strange bedfellows in college football, but when Georgia and Buffalo meet Saturday, Bulldogs' secondary coach Scott Lakatos will be facing the Bulls for an eleventh time spread over four schools. How is such a thing possible on the Georgia staff? Because Lakatos has only very recently fled for warmer weather, per the Athens Banner-Herald:
Lakatos, who coached only in the Northeast before he was hired to coach Georgia’s secondary in 2010, faced Buffalo four times while on staff at Maine from 1995-98, three times at Rutgers in 2001-03 and three times at Connecticut in the 2004, 2005, and 2008 seasons.
The good news for Lakatos is that the Bulls finished 76th in the country in passing offense last season in a miserable 3-9 campaign. With plenty of Georgia DBs suspended, Lakatos will get somewhat of a breather before UGA heads to Missouri next week.
