Christian LeMay took over for Aaron Murray early in the second quarter after a Brandon Bogotay field goal gave the Red a 5-3 lead. On his first series he handed off twice, missing Brandon Harton on third down. Murray took back control of the Black offense to withstand a sack by Jarvis Jones before a Justin Anderson false start.
After that penalty, Todd Grantham convinced the game’s officials to run out the first half clock, thereby becoming the first coach in all of college football to employ the NCAA’s brand new Dooley Rule.
Kwame Geathers and Alec Ogletree, both playing in new roles influenced in one way or another by the incoming DT John Jenkins, have both made strong plays this quarter. Ogletree delivered a solid shot on Harton just before Geathers devoured Caleb King in the backfield — King broke off a slithery 19-yard run just a few plays prior.
Rennie Curran is among those on the sidelines, with Mark Richt touting to WSB his productive tackling and his mother’s spicy African cooking. Of course Matthew Stafford, D.J. Shockley, David Greene, and Eric Zeier are also on the sideline, preparing for their halftime competition.
