Putting pressure on Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray will be important, Buffalo coach Jeff Quinn said Monday.
Of course, the suspension of linebacker and sack leader Khalil Mack for reportedly getting in a fight with a teammate makes that more difficult.
‚ÄúThere‚Äôs no question,‚Äù Quinn said. ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs been very disruptive and one of our best players, but we‚Äôve got to continue to move forward and we‚Äôve got other guys like (linebackers) Willie Mosely and Kendall Roberson who have both stepped up. It‚Äôs a great lesson that our kids have to understand when there‚Äôs a guy who gets hurt or a guy‚Äôs not able to compete in a game, our kids have to be able to step up. We‚Äôve got a mentality called the `Next Bull In‚Äô and that happens. I know Georgia‚Äôs faced it and we‚Äôre facing it.‚Äù
Georgia‚Äôs Sanders Commings and Chase Vasser are suspended for the first two games, but Georgia hasn‚Äôt confirmed suspensions to safety Bacarri Rambo and inside linebacker Alec Ogletree.
Quinn said his staff hasn‚Äôt concerned itself much with who might be missing for the Bulldogs.
‚ÄúWe haven‚Äôt really discussed much,‚Äù he said. ‚ÄúWe know whoever they put on that field is going to be very talented football players, very competitive, very hungry to prove themselves.‚Äù
