Georgia tops the SEC in scoring defense, allowing a stingy 12 points a game, but
the Dawgs will get the ultimate test Saturday against Alabama. The Tide lead the SEC and the nation in scoring offense, averaging 51-points a game.
Dawgs coach Kirby Smart says the challenge in stopping the Tide is not their schemes. It’s all that talent.

Said Smart:”What has made them exceed well is players. They’ve got really good players. Sark does a great job of implementing the system that the kids can execute. It’s based on really hard guys to cover outside. They’ve got probably the best back in the country if not one of the best backs in the country. Najee (Harris) runs the ball really hard, and they’re massive upfront.”
Said Georgia defensive lineman Jordan Davis:”Alabama offense in general is just very strong. Very powerful. Over the past years they’ve had Jalen Hurts and Tua. But just knowing that we have to adjust ot a new quarterback. New offensive line. New schemes.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
