Pair of Georgia defenders reportedly will miss Mizzou game too

Brian Linthicum, Bacarri Rambo AP

Separate off-the-field issues resulted in Georgia safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree missing last Saturday’s opener against Buffalo. It will apparently result in the pair’s absence from tomorrow’s game against Missouri as well.

The Macon Telegraph was one of many Georgai beat papers to report that Rambo and Ogletree were not on the plane to Columbia. ESPN.com later confirmed that the two would in fact miss tomorrow’s game as they continue to carry out suspensions handed down by the school.

The Bulldogs are also supposed to be without cornerback Sanders Commings and outside linebacker Chase Vasser, who are serving two-game suspensions for offseason arrests.

UGA has not publicly confirmed that Rambo and Ogletree were not on the flight, however. The pair was connected to failed drug tests this offseason.

    Great, just great, now when MIZZOU runs right through UGA they will have excuses about all the players that didn’t play.

    On a side note: I do want Missouri to win (obviously) but I wanted to see both teams at full strength.

    The SEC East has been down for the last several years… They still have a really high level of talent though. If you follow recruiting it is astounding the number of SEC schools in the top 25. Even lowly Vanderbilt is starting to get some pretty big time recruits. I think Mizzou will finish in the middle of the pack… however it would not surprise me if they beat Georgia. Georgia is probably better than they appeared last week but based on that game I am not sure they are a lock to win. Buffalo moved the ball with ease in the first half… not sure what was going on with their defense but it did not look good.

    Ben: It’s Columbia, Mo., not Columbus!

    If all the UGA fans would start smoking as much pot as the team, we’d all be so much happier…Win-loss record? Who cares?

    Honestly, It doesn’t matter. UGA will still walk through Mizzou. Everyone is focusing on Mizzou’s “high powered” offense against UGA’s defense. Remember UGA gets the ball too, Mizzou has to stop UGA’s play action as well.

    MIZZOU will take this one but it’ll be close. Georgia is missing too much on D and their Offense can’t match points with MIZZOU. Also MIZZOU doesn’t have a bad defense either, remember the last time they played an SEC team that had a supposedly great offense was whn thy played Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl and they had McFadden and Felix Jones. MIZZOU held them to only one TD, so you can’t just say they’re just going to walk through MIZZOU.

    What makes the SEC such a great defensive conference is not inky their speed but the DEPTH they have on defense as well. So what UGA is missing 4 starters, that’s where that whole “depth” thing I brought uo earlier comes in. UGA does have enough depth to stop Mizzou. The question is will they. I think they will you don’t. Last, please don’t bring up defenses that was years ago and no current players were apart of, it makes you sound silly. Even if Mizzou does somehow get by UGA, there’s still 6 more SEC teams you”ll have to play.
