Video/Transcript: Zion Logue and Javon Bullard Interviews – November 29, 2022
On the challenge of the LSU offensive line…
“The are very veteran in the middle three. We know that that’s what they try to use them a lot in their run game, try to get behind their big guards and their center, just trying to maul people get them out of displacement, out of gaps. We know we got to be technique sound and gap sound this week.”
On playing in Atlanta…
“We always treat Atlanta like its our backyard, like we’re down the road in Sanford. We do treat it like a homefield advantage. Going off of playing Oregon earlier this year and how many other countless times we’ve played there in the past, just try to use that to our advantage.”
On evaluating his performance throughout the season….
“I just try to do that week by week. During Sundays and Mondays, I try to go through and see what I did, see what I did wrong, see what I did good, and just take it week by week. Not really looking behind but just looking forward and just keep trying to improve my play week by week as much as I can.”
On what he believes allows him to pressure the quarterback so well as a defensive back…
“I really think the design within our gameplan, the coaches put in a great gameplan for me to come off the edge, and it allows me to make plays. I feel like it’s more so part of the gameplan than it is me coming out and making plays myself.”
On the progress he’s felt he’s made this season…
“I feel like I’ve progressed pretty well over the two years that I’ve been here. It’s all that preparation from last year that’s helping me this year, especially since I’ve taken on a bigger role. Coming into this season after last year I knew I’d have a bigger role in this defense, and we all just have different roles that we have to embrace. Everybody’s just buying in, myself included.”
On the team’s comfort level with playing in Mercedes-Benz Stadium…
“We take a lot of pride in playing there. This is the University of Georgia, so we feel that this is our state. We played there earlier this year and last season, so it means a lot to us, and we want to make sure we can go out there and be victorious in this game.”
Brock Bowers named finalist for John Mackey Award
Bulldog sophomore Brock Bowers has been named one of three John Mackey Award finalists for being one of the nation’s elite collegiate tight ends, according an announcement Tuesday.

Women’s Basketball Hosts Toy Drive
The Georgia women’s basketball program will host a Toy Drive this Thursday and Friday during the upcoming women’s and men’s basketball games.
To donate, fans will be able to drop off their toys at Gate A of Stegeman Coliseum. Each person who donates will receive two free tickets to that game (If you donate on Thursday, you receive tickets to the women’s game. If you donate on Friday, you receive tickets to the men’s game.) Gametickets can be picked up at Gate A at the donation drop-off.
The women’s team hosts Furman at 7 p.m. Thursday, before the men welcome Florida A&M at the same time on Friday.
This yearly tradition was started in 2015 by Aliyah Gregory, Georgia’s current director of video and scouting analytics and former UCF player. Gregory created the drive with the purpose of collecting new, unwrapped toys to donate to domestic violence shelters.
The program was a huge success at UCF, and the tradition will continue here at Georgia.
