Georgia tight end and team leader Aron White is fired up for Saturday’s game with Florida. And from what he told Tim Tucker of The AJC, he knows the game will have its heated moments:
“People get a little tight during Florida week and that’s the way it’s always been. That’s fans, players, staff, coaches, everybody. Everybody just gets a little more serious during Florida week. There’s not as much joking around. That’s just across the board. That’s everybody…
Blood is definitely going to run hot this weekend. I’m sure at some point something will happen that everybody will say was uncalled for or the emotions got the best of us, whether it’s on their side or on our side. We’ve both been caught doing some antics down there. My freshman year we ran out on the field. The year after that they had us blown ou by a pretty good lead and they started calling some timeouts late. But all that’s out the window and it’s a new year and we’re going to come out and we’re going to play. And while we didn’t forget those things, we’re going to focus on our gameplan and we’re going to need to because guys that get caught up in all that emotion usually lose. It’s the players that stay focused and do what they do best, they usually win.”
The Gators won last year’s game 34-31 in overtime. The three previous games — two Florida wins and one Georgia win — were decided by an average of 25 points.
