Former Hillcrest Star Calls Georgia Bulldogs “Very Beatable”
The Georgia Bulldogs are currently unbeaten and sit atop the national rankings as they eye their first national championship since 1980. The Bulldogs have been dominant in 2021 outscoring opponents by a score 269-46 through seven weeks.
Despite the Bulldogs' commanding start to the season, one of its recent opponents was less than impressed by the Georgia Bulldogs.
"I'm going to be honest, they're very beatable. They're very beatable," said Kentucky linebacker Jacquez Jones on Tuesday. "It's two games that's stuck in my career memory now. I don't know if you remember, but Wetumpka my senior year and this Georgia game. There's some plays from that game where I know if I did a little more, there would been a different outcome. They're a very beatable team. They're a great team, but very beatable. We just shot ourselves in the foot that game."
Jones, currently plays linebacker for the Kentucky Wildcats, just played the University of Georgia Bulldogs this past Saturday and joined The Hillcrest Huddle on Tuesday night to congratulate his alma mater for its strong season so far and inspire the Patriots as they prepare for the playoffs.
Jones played for Hillcrest High School in Tuscaloosa, from 2016-2018 after playing a season for their local rival, Tuscaloosa County High School. Jones was an impact player from day one for both schools, earning a bunch of Division 1 offers. He began his college career with the Ole Miss Rebels, playing there from 2018-2020 before transferring to Kentucky.
Jones has already become one of the leaders of the Wildcat defense. He's second on the team in tackles with 43. He recently won multiple FBS defensive player of the week awards including the Walter Camp and SEC Co-Defensive player of the week, in Week 5.
Despite Jacquez Jones's comments, Georgia seems pretty unbeatable at the moment. Heading into Week 8, they remain undefeated. As an Alabama fan, you certainly hope they're "very beatable" as Alabama tries to get back in the SEC title hunt.
Georgia is the front-runner to win the SEC East and represent them in the SEC Championship game. Georgia and Kentucky are both on a bye week this week, while Alabama plays Tennessee in their annual Homecoming game. Georgia returns Halloween weekend to play Florida, and Kentucky plays Mississippi State.
