South Carolina DB Chris Lammons latest opponent to lob trash talk at Georgia
Opponents criticizing Georgia’s passing offense is beginning to become a trend around the SEC. No matter, apparently, that the Bulldogs are undefeated and ranked No. 2 in this week’s AP poll.
South Carolina defensive back Chris Lammons was the latest to offer trash talk about Georgia. The Gamecocks will visit the Bulldogs at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday in a game to be televised on CBS.
During a meeting with reporters on Tuesday, Lammons was asked which phase of Georgia’s offense provides the greatest concern, the pass or the run?
“The run,” Lammons said. “They can’t pass.”
He also added that the marquee television slot for an SEC game is another chance for the Gamecocks to prove themselves.
“I feel like every week is an opportunity to show everybody how good we are,” he said. “This week is going to be a big game and we should come out with the victory as long as we do what we have to do.”
Lammons’ comments came after Florida defensive back Chauncey Gardner said of Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm, “He’s throwing simple passes. I get it. Anybody can throw a slant.”
That came before Fromm and Georgia beat Florida 42-7 on Saturday in a game when Fromm was 4-for-7 passing for 101 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
When asked about the Vegas betting line listing Georgia as more than a three-touchdown favorite, Lammons replied that oddsmakers are often wrong.
