Georgia Football: Auburn Going After Player Who Choked Girlfriend ,Big Time Georgia CB Out for Season,Tennessee Scouting Report – Daily Dose of Dawg
Auburn Recruiting Ex-Dawg, Jonathan Taylor
At some point, this just gets comical. Auburn, “The School of Second Chances,” is once again going after a player that was kicked off another team. With all the recent news about football players and domestic violence, you’d think schools would stay away from a guy who was kicked out of Georgia for strangling his girlfriend, but not Auburn. Nope. For the War Eagle Tigers, this is just par for the course. It’s interesting, though, because Tiger coach, Guz Malzahn, just recently spoke out against domestic violence.
Jonathan Taylor, who was released by Mark Richt in July for choking his girlfriend, is of course being recruited by Auburn. He hasn’t yet received an offer from the Tigers, but you can be sure that that will be coming soon, along with a Maserati and a new Rolex. For now, though, he just chats with the Auburn coaches weekly, likely discussing other criminals that Auburn might have a shot with.
Shattle Fenteng Out for Year
Georgia’s first big season ending injury has finally come, and it’s only fitting that it’s been announced during Tennessee week (see significance here). Shattle Fenteng, who’s been battling a shoulder injury for a while now, will not play at all this season according to Mark Richt.
“It’ll be doubtful that he’ll play again this season,” Richt said after Wednesday’s practice. “I’m pretty sure he’s going to require some surgery on his shoulder. It just never got better.”
Fenteng will apply for, and likely receive, a medical redishirt, giving him two years of eligibility at UGA. He really is a tremendous talent and was excepted to be a major contributor, maybe even a starter, this year for the Bulldogs. I wouldn’t see this as a huge loss, seeing as how he hasn’t contributed at all this year anyways, but he certainly would’ve been able to help this team.
Story on Fenteng here.

Tennessee Scouting Report
Wes Rucker of GoVols247 wrote a good scouting report on what to watch out for from the Volunteers and how they can beat Georgia. Dude’s Note: Our very own Chad Floyd posted a somewhat
less comprehensive more basic one here.) I’ve decided to give you mine. Georgia is the better, more experienced team, and should win this game at home. It will come down to a.) Can Georgia stop Tennessee’s big receivers and keep Worley from looking like Peyton Manning? b.) Can Hutson Mason pick apart the defense if they gear up to stop the run? In order to be successful in both of those areas, Georgia will need to a.) Attack Tennessee’s young offensive line heavily with blitzes and put pressure on Worley, and b.) Throw in a lot of play action.
Example of Georgia running the play action:
If the Dawgs can do those things effectively, I think they’ll win the game by at least two touchdowns.
