Henry To'o To'o offers his assessment of UGA's new offense: 'They’re still trying to pound the ball... that’s Georgia football'
Georgia entered the season with a ton of hype but after two games, is the hype warranted?
It is if you ask Tennessee’s All-SEC linebacker Henry To’o To’o.
The leader of Tennessee’s defense met with the media on Tuesday and offered up his initial thoughts on the Bulldogs after studying film of Georgia this season.
To’o To’o and the Volunteers linebackers have the difficult assignment of dealing with Georgia’s massive offensive line and talented running backs on Saturday.
Here’s what the sophomore had to say on the challenge of facing Georgia’s offense after two games.
“They do a great job of running that offense, especially behind their big o-line. They try to run the ball,” To’o To’o. “They get it out as fast as they can, so we’ve just got to be able to contain them. They both can move; they both have good vision on where to put the ball and ball placement. So, that’s kind of what I’ve seen through my one day of studying, so I just got to be able to dig deeper as I go throughout the week.”
How much has Georgia’s offense changed this season following the transition from Jake Fromm to Stetson Bennett and a change at the offensive coordinator position?
“From what I’ve seen, they’re still Georgia,” To’o To’o replied. “They’re still trying to pound the ball like you were saying — and that’s Georgia football. They’re trying to run that rock down your throat. Nothing spectacular that’s been different. Everything has been what we expected to see on film and what we expected going throughout this week.”
Jeremy Pruitt has said this week that Georgia has no weaknesses on film.
While that could be written off as coachspeak, Tennessee’s sophomore linebacker agrees with his coach’s statement.
“Coach Pruitt hit it right on the spot,” he added. “They’re big boys and we have to do our part. We have to come out mentally sound, physically sound, and give it our all. They’re a great, phenomenal team and they’re not just going to lay down. So, we got to give everything we’ve got throughout this week and sort it out on Saturday.”
