Tate Ratledge blunt on his play for Georgia football offensive line

ATHENS — Tate Ratledge has no problem admitting Saturday was not his best performance. He knows the offensive line didn’t play up to the Georgia standard, with the redshirt sophomore being critical of his own play.

“I think we just have to play to our standard,” Ratledge said. “I don’t think some of us did that game, me in particular.”

Ratledge was responsible in part for a sack that led to Georgia kicking a field goal in the first quarter. The Bulldogs also gave up 3.0 tackles for loss in the performance as well.

“(Offensive line coach Stacy) Searels preaches to us that sacks and TFLs will lose us a game so we believe in that,” Ratledge said. “We try to keep Stetson untouched the whole game, which of course that hasn’t worked out how we wanted it to.”

It’s worth remembering Ratledge is still making his way back from a foot injury he suffered in the opening game of the 2021 season. Saturday was the first time he was asked to play a four-quarter game.

Ratledge knows he doesn’t need to make excuses for his or the offensive line play to this point. Using one of the team mantras, nobody cares.
