Earlier this week, Ohio State defender Jack Sawyer made some comments about how the Buckeyes match up with Georgia:
Ohio State defensive end Jack Sawyer. "I think we've got advantages across the board on both sides. We've just got to go execute." #CFPPlayoffs.

Sawyer may not be wrong; I disagree, but he may not be wrong. Here’s how Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett IV responded to Sawyer’s comments:
UGA’s media training seems to be focused on giving the opponent *nothing* to post on their bulletin boards. Earlier today, OSU DE Jack Sawyer said, “I think we’ve got advantages across the board.”

There’s nothing wrong with a little confidence heading into Saturday. I don’t think the comments were out of line, and of course, fans are looking to jump all over any bulletin board material. However, if you need bulletin board material and motivation for this game, you’ve lost before you even get off the bus. I love Bennett’s answer, and it’s just further proof that Kirby Smart has Georgia locked in and ready for this game.
