Legendary Georgia head coach Vince Dooley joined Dukes & Bell on Thursday.

Dooley talked about George Pickens playing against an Auburn team he was committed to play for while in high school.

“He never did sign, so that’s one thing. He never was quite a trader,” Dooley said. “But nevertheless he was a longtime commitment and then all of a sudden saw more of an opportunity at Georgia and decided to come. He’s a heck of a good receiver, but he’s a pretty emotional competitive individual, so I don’t think he’s going to be affected by it. I think his competitive juices will be flowing and there will be some competitive juices flowing against him on the other side. But that’s what the game is all about is, competition, and this just adds a little more to it. “

Coach said that the Georgia passing game could be the key to a Dawgs win.

“Both of them as you know are fine defenses, both of them run the ball extremely well,” Dooley said. “I like to think we throw it a little bit better, and that may be the difference. I hope it will be. But you’re right, it’s going to be another one of those Rock’em Sock’em type football games, two fine defensive teams, two good running teams. And then hopefully, I hope we will be a little bit better throwing the football and catching it.”
