UGA Press Conference Notes & Audio
No. 15 Auburn at No. 9 Georgia
Previewing the Tigers
Select QuotesOn playing Auburn: "It's been a really tight series all the way around. And it's been a pretty even series for quite some time. We're both fighting for our lives this week, Auburn in the West and Georgia in the East. It's very important for all of us."
On the Tigers' personnel:
"You look at film hoping to find things you can attack on either side, but Auburn's a complete football team. They are outstanding in all phases of the game. It's going to be one heck of a game. I'm glad it's at home and I also feel good about it being at night. I think our fans will be even more excited about it. It will be a physical game and hopefully we can make enough plays to win it."
On D.J. Shockley:
"Right now, I think he'll be 100 percent. I think he will play and do all the things he's done. I didn't see any setbacks at practice on Monday. I didn't see him limping around or doing anything different. I feel like he'll be fine. Hopefully he can get right back in the groove."
On the return of leaders Shockley, Kedric Golston and Gerald Anderson: "They are really strong leaders. And when your leaders are playing, it's better, no doubt about it. Really, overall we're about as healthy as we've been in a long while. We've got to be ready for a physical brand of football."
On the Florida game:
"We're over the loss. We know the pressure's on if we want to get to Atlanta. I feel like once we practiced (last) Tuesday, it was good for everyone, myself included. We all felt better after that day."
On the polls:
"With the schedule we have, we need to just win ‹ period. We've got Auburn, Kentucky, Tech and if we're lucky enough to be in the SEC Championship Game, and that's enough of a chance. The only thing we can control is, can we win the East and play for the SEC? Everything after that you just hope falls in line for you. I'm thankful we're still pursuing those goals right now going into the ninth game."
Thomas Brown (tailback) on whether or not the team's intensity level
is still as high after its recent loss - "Most definitely. This team has not
given up just because of the loss to Florida."
