Dogs safety Norman calls first start of season ‘decent’

Former walk-on safety Connor Norman started in place of suspended Bacarri Rambo in the opener and except for one missed tackle in space, Georgia coach Mark Richt liked what he saw.

“He does a great job of knowing what to do, getting lined up,” Richt said. “He is a sure-tackler when he fits up into the responsibilities of doing that. I think he’s got good ball-skills too. We like what he’s doing.”

Norman characterized his play on Saturday as “decent.”

“It’s a big change for me to be out there starting and playing every play,” he said. “It was hot Saturday. I was obviously nervous. I feel like that’s expected because you’re playing around such great guys out there. I feel like I need to step up my game when I’m playing too because I’m playing around such great players.”

Georgia hasn’t said if Rambo is suspended again Saturday for a second violation of Georgia’s drug policy.
