Can anybody at Georgia tackle?
By Chris Low
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- I doubt Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will be adding up the missed tackles at halftime.
But if he did, it wouldn't be pretty.
The Gamecocks -- namely Marcus Lattimore and Alshon Jeffery -- have run through Georgia defenders and dragged Georgia defenders with them the entire first half.
Case in point: Cornerback Branden Smith had a chance to make a tackle on Jeffery on a third-and-3 play late in the second quarter, but Jeffery ran right through him for a 23-yard gain.
Of course, the 233-pound Jeffery will probably be running over a lot of cornerbacks this season.
