ATHENS – The circumstances of Tracy Rocker’s departure are still a mystery to the public. Whether he was pushed out or left on his own has never been confirmed. As for his replacement, a question about Tray Scott was politely deflected on Tuesday by Kirby Smart, who said he only wanted on that to discuss the dedication of the indoor facility.
Here’s what we do know: Scott would appear to be a very lucky man, walking into a great situation. He inherits a loaded defensive line, both in star talent and depth.
Loaded, I’ll repeat. Tray Scott may be relatively young and experienced, but if this unit stays healthy, it would probably do well if it was being coached by Michael Scott.
So, on a defense that returns almost everybody, we wrap up the preview of this side of the ball with yet another fairly optimistic analysis.
It began with the safeties.
Then we had the cornerbacks.
We moved on to the outside linebackers.
And then of course the inside linebackers.
