Lack of turnovers? It's the pass rush. And other unqualified claims.

That's my dumb opinion. From David Hale here at the paper:
A year ago at this point in the season, Georgia's interception total wasn't any better than it is now. In fact, while the Bulldogs finished with an impressive tally, they had just two interceptions in their first eight games of the season. Then the light clicked on, the defensive backs began cashing in on their opportunities, and in the final five games of the year, Georgia picked off 13 passes.
That paragraph is actually down at the bottom, but I kept waiting for it. We've been waiting for things to click this year, and I got the sense they started to (on offense) during that last drive of the Tennessee game.

That has nothing to do with a pass rush, obviously.

But to see it all come together just a little earlier in the season this year, and to have it happen without one big moment, one big celebration, if you will, would make sense.

But we'll see.

Did you know that disco record sales were up 400% for the year ending 1976? If these trends continue... AAY!
