Florida LG Carl Johnson made his weekly media appearance and talked about Georgia faking an injury, getting up early for the Vanderbilt game and SpongeBob.
What’s the hardest part about running a no-huddle offense?
“The worst is when they’re not aligned and they snap the ball and you don’t know who to hit because everybody’s just running around like chickens, so you just hit somebody that’s closest to you.”
What’s fun about it?
“It’s fun to see 300-pound lineman like wheezing for air. They’re wheezing and you’re looking at him like, ‘He’s tired. He’s tired.’”
What did the Georgia players say to you when you wore them down?
“They couldn’t talk they were so tired. They really weren’t saying much.”
“Yeah, I was, mainly. When No. 31 (DE Demarcus Dobbs) got hurt, I was pointing, ‘He’s tired. He’s not really hurt.’ He’s tired. Fake an injury to get out of there, stop the clock. Because if he didn’t, we was ready to go again. They were gassed.”
So you enjoyed it?
“You feel like you own them a little bit, like, ‘You’re blowed, you’re tired, you’re gasping.’ I’m fine.”
What do you think about getting up early for the morning kickoff at Vanderbilt?
“I get up early anyway. I like cartoons. I like cartoons, so I’ll probably be up at like 7:45 watching TV , eating cereal.”
What cartoons do you watch?
“SpongeBob. Come on, man. Come on.”
You like SpongeBob?
“My boy Patrick. That’s my dude.”
Which teammate reminds you of SpongeBob?
“(Chris) Rainey. He has that laugh, that little Squidward laugh.”
