Georgia Vs. Missouri: Tigers Not Concerned With Bulldogs Suspensions

With Mark Richt not divulging whether or not two defensive starters will be suspended for the Georgia Bulldogs' conference opener against the Missouri Tigers, Tigers head coach Gary Pinkel is more concerned with preparing for the Bulldogs' scheme more than the personnel on the field.

Like the previous week against the Buffalo Bulls, Georgia head coach Mark Richt is keeping it close to the vest whether Bacarri Rambo and Alec Ogletree will be suspended for Saturday's game. Unable to know who will be on the field, Pinkel is instead worried about figuring out the Bulldogs scheme instead in his interview with Seth Emerson of The Telegraph,

"You prepare for the scheme. Obviously I don't know if they are going to be back or not. We can't worry about that. We have enough things to be concerned about that we have control over. If they play, they play. I don't know what else to tell you."

Missouri offensive coordinator David Yost wasn't worried about Rambo and Ogletree, but was more concerned with any new schemes Georgia might show Missouri this week that they withheld against the Bulls in Week 1.

"We didn't run our whole offense in the first game because we wanted to put ourselves in a good position. Also, what we were seeing defensively was a little odd so we tried keeping it real simple for our kids. I'm sure they were the same way playing Buffalo in the first game. They didn't bring out all the stops. I'm sure we'll see some other looks and some other packages from them in that way."
