As always, the team met with media members Tuesday afternoon to talk about the upcoming game against Vanderbilt and the win against Tennessee. Here are a few quotes from Mark Richt, Aaron Murray and Abry Jones:
Mark Richt on off the field distractions:
"It's hard to have great continuity week-by-week if a young man has done something to keep himself from being on the field. Again, it's our job also to deal with those things, but also not take away from the preparation and not take away from the focus of the team. "
Richt on Vandy:
"They play fast and they play physical and they really play great fundamental football on both sides of the ball. You could tell they've created a lot of really good habits in the way they play."
Richt on if true freshemn Ken Malcome will play in the game:
"We've been getting Ken ready for probably the last month or so. I don't know if we had him with the varsity the very first week. We might have had him on the scout team. We were watching him in drill work and we feel like he has great potential."
Aaron Murray on the win against Tennessee:
"We hadn't been playing a complete game and this past weekend we did. The offense was definitely there and making plays. The first five game we did some good things and other times weren't making plays. This past weekend was nice."
Murray on the impact of A.J. Green:
"Teams will send safeties over the top or put a corner on him and things like that, which frees everyone else up. Maybe there's one less defender on another guy or one less in the box so it's nice to open things up for everyone else."
Abry Jones on the night after defeating Tennessee:
"Saturday night was just a relaxed feeling. There was no thinking back to the game about what could have gone better, about what I could have done better and what could have the team done better. It was just relaxed in just saying we are back on track, we won one. I was just sitting back relaxing and enjoying the win."
Richt was also asked about the Caleb King situation but brushed off the questions right away. It's obvious he is irritated with all the arrest that have gone on this year.
