What Jeremy Pruitt said about Georgia after loss to Bulldogs
The Georgia Bulldogs were tested early by the Tennessee Volunteers, but UGA ended up scoring the final 33 points of the game.
Georgia flexed its muscles in Neyland Stadium during the 43-14 win over the Volunteers. Jake Fromm threw for two touchdowns, and the Bulldogs defense dug in its heels after the first quarter.
Following the game, below is everything that Jeremy Pruitt said about Georgia, via The Knoxville News Sentinel:
“You have to congratulate Georgia. We pushed them a little bit there in the first half. They do what good teams do. They found a way to stop us in the two-minute (drill) before the half.”
On Jake Fromm
“This is the third time I’ve coached against Jake Fromm. It’s hard to fool him, even though we did one time and kind of manned up, kind of a false start. But I thought we done a nice job of mixing it up. Normally he keeps a clock in his head. In my opinion, it’s boom, boom, boom and if it’s not there he’ll throw the ball away. I know one time it was third-and-5, we dropped eight. That’s unusual for us.”
On 2019 Georgia vs. 2018 Georgia
“I think this Georgia team is probably a little better than the one this time last year. I think our football team is a little bit better than this time last year too. You know, we just have to learn from it. Hey, nobody is looking for a pat on the back for playing hard. I’m not. I think our kids play hard. I don’t know, I have to watch the tape.”
On no moral victory against UGA
“Our No. 1 goal is to win every game. Every game that we play. That’s our No. 1 goal. We don’t walk out there and say I hope we play good tonight, or I hope we play them good for the first half. Our goal is to find a way to win every game. That’s the bottom line. And that will always be our goal. Until we start doing that around here, we’re not going to stop. That’s gotta be the expectations. And so, hey, our kids hurt. They put a lot into it. But Georgia made more plays than we did. They probably done a better job coaching that we did. It all goes into that. It all starts at the top and rolls down. We’ll go back, look at the film and see what we need to do to improve.”
