Spring Review: When Todd Grantham was announced as the Bulldogs' defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, Tyson wasted little time in announcing that he wanted to challenge for the starting nose position in Georgia's 3-4 defensive scheme. The Statesboro native didn't disappoint, seemingly picking up the new defense with relative ease and had no trouble holding off Kwame Geathers for the top spot on the depth chart heading into preseason drills.
Fall Preview: Georgia's most experienced defensive lineman is all but assured of starting the season at nose after serving as the main understudy the past two seasons to Jeff Owens, Geno Atkins and Kade Weston. At 295 pounds, Tyson may not be the biggest nose but that that's the same size as Dallas nose Jay Ratliff and the Statesboro native sees no reason why he can't fill the role. He'll certainly get his chance.
Two players are currently wearing 94 for Georgia right now. Defensive lineman
DeAngelo Tyson and walk-on snapper Billy Johnson share the number. DeAngelo had a career-high 4 tackles against Georgia Tech, but maybe his biggest play last season happened when he blocked an extra point against South Carolina. As for Billy Johnson, I don't know much about him, but I wonder if he has any 'white shoes'.
Quentin Moses wore 94 from 2003 to 2006 was great in getting to opposing quarterbacks. His 11.5 sacks in 2005 and his 25 career sacks are both 6th all-time by a Georgia Bulldog. The Cedar Shoals product finished his career with 44.5 tackles for loss and 95 quarterback pressures.
Moses has played the last three seasons for the Miami Dolphins.
Bruce Adrine played as
a solid defensive end for the Bulldogs at the end of the last century and the beginning of this one. In his pro career he has been a member of two more Georgia teams: the Atlanta Falcons and the Georgia Force of the Arena Football League.
One of best names in Bulldog history wore 94 in the mid to late 80's. Wycliff Lovelace was a defensive tackle and was the Defensive Captain for Head Coach Vince Dooley's final season.
94-yard drive is what the Bulldogs needed during the first game of the 21st century and that is what they got. At one point, Georgia trailed Purdue 25-0 in the 2000 Outback Bowl, but the Dawgs fought back and with 1:19 left, they tied the game as
Quincy Carter found Randy McMichael in the endzone for the 8-yard score. Georgia would eventually win the game in overtime with a
Hap Hines field goal.
