Georgia Moving Forward

October 29, 2006

Jacksonville -- Saturday's match-up between Georgia and Florida ended the same way most of the games have in recent years: A Gator win.

Florida has now won eight of nine and 15 of the past 17 against the Bulldogs, but considering UGA is in a bit of a down year and the Gators were ranked ninth in the nation, it wasn't a bad showing by the Dogs.

Florida taking a 21-point lead before the Georgia defense shut them down the rest of the way.

It was also revealed Sunday quarterback Chris Leak may have sustained a concussion during the first half, but did not inform team doctors or his coaches.

The Bulldogs comeback wasn't enough to get them the win, and head coach Mark Richt says all his team can do is prepare for the next one.

"Our players will spend a little time putting this one to rest and then moving on," says Richt. "You don't have time to sit there and feel sorry for yourself, you don't have time to sit there and pout."

Tight end Martrez Milner says, "We know we can do anything. Once we believe and make plays when it's time for us to make plays and put the pieces together as a team, we can do anything."

Georgia is now 6-3 on the year, and plays at Kentucky Saturday at 1pm.
