  Draft Scout by Conference

  Kirby Smart was talking about Georgia's established defense after a less than inspiring showing by his offense in its opener against Arkansas when he sounded ready to lean heavily on that one side of the ball. "We're going to have to use them as we build the rest of our team up and as we grow as a team," the Bulldogs coach said. Smart, who made his reputation for his defensive coaching chops, even admitted that he was more focused on working through the offensive issues and less zeroed in on the defense.

A week later, the No. 4 Bulldogs 27-6 takedown of No. 7 Auburn Saturday marked a giant leap forward for the offense under first-year offensive coordinator Todd Monken. Stetson Bennett may as well have walked off the Sanford Stadium field with one of those office name plates engraved with the words: "Starting quarterback." In his first UGA start, Bennett led an offense that didn't need any points this time off a pick six or safety. No, the Bulldogs five scoring drives averaged 65 yards each with two 11 play drives and two 10 play drives. Georgia only had one three-and-out all night. "We really got whipped on all three phases," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. "Stetson's never lacked confidence in himself," Smart said. "I'm happy for him. I want to temper that enthusiasm because he knows he's got to be better. People around him played well. That's important for Stetson, but he did a good job of understanding what we wanted to do in the game plan and he executed that really well." - Athens Daily Banner
