I don't think we've seen him as good as he can play, and he played really good the last five or six games last year. I don't want to put any pressure on him, but he's a special guy.
Last year, they played a bunch of close games. Learning how to win doesn't happen overnight. Coach (Bobby) Johnson has done a good job of teaching that in a real methodical way.
We knew they were good when we signed them up to play in July 2004. Then they won like 23 out of their next 24 games.
There's definitely some differences in style. That may give us grief in terms of preparation.
On offense, we're pretty good. We could be a lot more than good.
If you look at him as a fifth-year senior who's both a leader and a quarterback, I'd say he's doing a really good job. If you look at him as a first-year starter, he's doing an unbelievable job. I don't know where we would be without him.
They both weren't a good option, I didn't think.
On the other hand, you've got to have production.
I don't think we compare quite to the accomplishments they had. That was definitely the greatest four-year period in Georgia history.... We can't match the three SEC championships and the national championship.

Georgia's our home, period. That's just the way it is. I've said it since the day I got here, unless Georgia wants us to leave, this is where we're going to be.
We didn't really do a good job of telling everybody to keep it hush-hush. We just wanted to honor him tonight and show our support.
I hope I'm here
I hope I'm here ... It's a great game. They have an SEC-like stadium and fan base, so it's pretty much like we're used to.
I've never lost a game for H-O-R-S-E yet at my house,
You've got to go to the line of scrimmage with a couple of options, ... I took some of those out of his hands. I probably hurt him more than I helped.
I know (Gant) was hurt bad,
When D.J. first got hurt, it was sad. We didn't know how bad, he didn't know how bad it was. We were thinking his career at Georgia could be over right then and there. That would have been awful. We would have tried to sugarcoat it as best we could, but it would have been sad for him and for us.
I think Florida's intentions were to use a lot of the things (West Virginia coach Rich) Rodriguez is doing, but Chris Leak's talents didn't really jibe with that.
We've never done that. It's not a bad idea. I've never thought to do that but maybe in the future we will.
We thought by now T.J. would be practicing.
I thought he looked a lot like Shane Matthews. It was kind of eerie how much he looked like him. He looked like Shane Matthews as a second- or third-year player, not the first shot out of the cannon.
It was a little bit surreal to look up and see what the score was that early in the game, ... I thought we could win the game. I didn't necessarily think we could do it in that fashion.
It's been talked about a lot, probably more than most (openers) for us, and that's because we're playing a great team. It's a team that wins almost every time they play.
Right now, we think he'll be 100 percent. (Monday) was the first time we let him do everything, and he had no setbacks. I watched him close, and I saw no signs of him limping around or gimping around.
