Saturday Down South names 3 duds from week 2:
1. Tennessee’s Second Half Team
The first half of the Oregon game, Tennessee looked legit. Second half, not so much. At the 6:27 mark in the third quarter, Tennessee quarterback Matt Simms threw a pick-6 to Oregon’s Cliff Harris. Listen to this – before the pick-6 Tennessee ran 56 plays for 322 yards and gave up 0 sacks and 0 turnovers. After the pick-6 Tennessee ran 20 plays for 11 yards and gave up 2 sacks. Lay down why don’t ya? What a dud.
2. Georgia’s Fumble
Georgia came out the second half against South Carolina strong. Quarterback Aaron Murray looked like he was settling in the pocket and getting things cranked up for the second half and Georgia was driving – that is, until running back Washaun Ealey fumbled deep in South Carolina territory and totally took the wind out of the Bulldogs’ sails. Keep your head up Ealey as you are very talented, but what a dud to give the ball up when you have all the momentum and a chance to tie the game.
3. Leon Berry’s Drop
Mississippi State’s final drive looked good and they had a legit chance to take that thing into overtime against Auburn. Bulldog receiver Leon Berry dropped a pass from quarterback Chris Relf that would have put State into field goal range and a chance for the tie, but Berry dropped the football. You just had to feel bad for the kid, but you have to make those types of catches to get your team to the next level.
