Blake Baker may have cooked up a scheme with the Missouri defense that kept Georgia off balance for much of the game last Saturday, but the Tigers defensive coordinator gives much of the credit to his players.

At the end of the day Georgia showed its championship mettle and pulled out a 26-22 win on the road. Still Baker had nothing but positive things to say about the way his unit plays.

There was a lot of trash talk during pre-game warmups. It wasn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but Baker suggests that it might have gotten his players fired up even more.

Missouri was a massive underdog going into Saturday’s game and were also probably in search of some respect. The Tigers didn’t get the win, but they played top-ranked Georgia down to the final seconds and gave the Bulldogs its toughest challenege to date this season.
