Georgia vs. Vandy: Watch Out for These Three Commodores, One of Whom is the Cal Ripken, Jr. of Punting
I wrote at length about this topic (and others) here, but there are three Vandy players worth keeping an eye on today.
Georgia has a tendency to make heroes out of opposing SEC players. South Carolina’s Dylan Thompson looked like Peyton Manning at times against Jeremy Pruitt’s defense. Tennessee’s Justin Worley also looked like Peyton Manning.
Peyton Manning ain’t walkin’ through that door for Vanderbilt. No way. But Ralph Webb could make an impact from his running back spot.
To be clear, there’s no reason to reasonably expect this guy to go off other than a more than healthy Georgia fear of letting someone go unnoticed. He had nice games against Ole Miss (18 carries, 95 yards) and South Carolina (19 carries, 97 yards), but he’s not an All-SEC player.
Unless Georgia makes him one.
One of the more celebrated recruits in Vanderbilt history, Azubike chose Vandy over the likes of Louisville and Mississippi State as a 4-star recruit in 2012. In five games this year, he has four sacks. I suspect he’ll pick up another this week.
Colby “Caillat” Cooke
It starts in his toes, then the football goes…
No punter in the country has kicked the ball 30 or more times for a higher per-punt average than Colby Cooke. He’s the Cal Ripken, Jr. of punting. He does it all the time and he does it pretty damn well.
That’s all I got/
