Georgia center David Andrews expects to have some battles in the trenches with Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson on Saturday.
Richardson created waves over the weekend when he said Georgia played ‚Äúold-man football.‚Äù
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt know, we‚Äôll see,‚Äù Andrews said when asked if there would be some choice words tossed around. ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt even know what it all meant. ‚Ä¶What kind of happens on the field kind of stays out there. There‚Äôs always jawing back and forth.‚Äù
Georgia players insisted they aren‚Äôt focused on what‚Äôs being said coming out of Columbia, Mo.
‚ÄúBeing over 50, I‚Äôm getting AARP stuff in the mail,‚Äù Georgia coach Mark Richt said. ‚ÄúI thought it was a compliment, really.‚Äù
Receiver Michael Bennett, who is 20, said he wasn‚Äôt sure what he considered an old man.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm not sure what old man means in college,‚Äù he said. ‚ÄúI guess 22 would be old, I don‚Äôt know.‚Äù
Asked if Georgia will play young-man football this week, nose guard John Jenkins smiled.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre just going to play Georgia-style football,‚Äù Jenkins said.
