"We're going to have to pass the ball."

And you've been worried about Georgia's passing game. Be glad you ain't a 'Dore.
Vanderbilt has been devoid of perimeter pizazz this season to help the quarterback situation, with junior tight end Steven Scheu serving as his team's leading receiver with 13 catches for 188 yards. The Commodores rank 108th nationally in rushing offense with 107.2 yards a game and 115th in passing with 148.4 per contest.
The most consistent offensive weapon has been redshirt freshman tailback Ralph Webb, who has 90 carries for 427 yards (4.7 per carry).
"We've just got to execute the passing game," a frustrated Webb said after the loss in Lexington. "Defenders take notice and start loading the box with eight or nine guys, so it's going to be hard to run the ball against anybody. We've got to spread the ball out and execute the passing game better.
"Georgia is going to load the box and make us pass the ball. We're going to have to pass the ball."
Saturday the 'Dores will go with Freebeck, the true freshman who has tried to hold things together while Patton Robinette has been out due to injury. You can see it's been a kind of trial by fire for the kid:

So this could be the kind of game where Pruitt's secondary can gain some confidence before setting off on the road.
