Linebacker Victor Alexander said that defensive coordinator Ted Roof told the defense that the week of practice leading up to the Duke game was the best of the year.
“We got out there, things didn’t always go our way,” Alexander said. “We had roller-coaster adventures out there. We went up, we went down. We just had a rough fight.”
Defensive end KeShun Freeman cited a shortage of discpline, saying “Everyone shoud have fit in the right places at the right time.” Missed tackles were rampant, as well. He called Georgia a “discipline game,” meaning that the Jackets will have to exercise it to compete.
“Duke game, we didn’t do that well,” Freeman said. “We know that. We watched the film, cleared it out, moving forward to the Georgia game with so much intensity and so much focus. We know what we want to do as a team.”
