Losing a center is bad. Losing an all-conference center and his backup is even worse. Having to use a guard who’s never played before at center, and letting him field a blitz-crazy, turnover-happy defense on a scalding Georgia afternoon? Yep.
No worries about the position this week, as both Sean Bedford and Jay Finch are good to go.
Coley Harvey reports:
The addition of Bedford and Finch should tighten up an issue coaches had been preparing the last few days to gameplan around. In addition to Beno, backup guard Zach Krish had been taking snaps at center, and was expecting to see time against the Demon Deacons.
“He’s only one person,” co-offensive line coach Mike Sewak said of Bedford. “But he’ll do a good job. His intensity and his desire and his drive is contagious. So Sean’s a good leader, and it’s good to have your leaders on the field. It’s a calming influence, too, sometimes.
