ATHENS, Ga. — University of Georgia sophomore tight end Brock Bowers and redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman Broderick Jones met with media after practice Wednesday evening and offered the following comments regarding the preparation for the SEC opener against South Carolina.


#19 Brock Bowers | Sophomore | TE

On preparing for a road environment in the SEC

“We have crowd noise over the loudspeakers at practice. It gets hard to hear sometimes, so we’re working on things on offense because we’re trying to replicate the game environment at practice.”


On his comfort level through two games compared to last year… 

“It’s completely night and day… I think after two games last year everything was still moving pretty fast for me. It was hard to make reads and process everything, but after two games this year I feel pretty good.”


On what stands out to him about South Carolina’s defense… 

“They have some good guys in the middle and at defensive back. We just try to prepare like every other week and get after it. We try to imitate them as best we can on the scout side of the ball, and they’ve been doing a good job of that.”


#59 Broderick Jones | R-Sophomore | OL

On the opportunity to improve the run game against South Carolina…

“Every game we try to impose our will in the running game, no matter who we are playing. That is always the goal, to impose our will in the running game. I think we will attack it a little bit more this week.”


On the offensive line rotations…

“We just have so many great offensive linemen. Everybody can play any position. We’re just rotating and keeping fresh, keeping our legs fresh. Rotate so (?) Mims can get reps because he’s been doing a great job. Warren (?) has been doing a great job at right and left (tackle). We’re just trying to keep a fresh pair of legs in at all times.”


On Williams-Brice Stadium…

“I really didn’t get a real experience my first time playing there, it was during Covid, so I’m excited to play there. SEC stadiums are always going to be rocking when two SEC opponents are going at it.”


On the craziest environment he’s played in…

“Tennessee. That was the loudest stadium I have ever played in.”
