David Pollack was less than pleased with Georgia football’s defensive effort vs. Florida.

If David Pollack is upset with the Georgia football defense, then you know the effort was bad.

The Georgia Bulldogs lost the only game that matters this season to the arch rival Florida Gators to the tune of 44-28. Georgia could not get right all game, but what was especially troubling was the supposedly best defense in the Power 5 allowed Florida quarterback Kyle Trask to pick them to pieces. He has now forced his way back into the Heisman Trophy conversation with this game.

Georgia’s first half defensive effort ruined its comeback chances in the second

Pollack is arguably the greatest defensive player in Georgia football history. He is a College Football Hall of Famer, a three-time All-American and a Mount Rushmore candidate for his alma mater’s program. Keep in mind Pollack was a former two-star recruit slated to play fullback when he first arrived in Athens. Effort, instincts and tenacity made Pollack a college football legend.

These days, Pollack works for ESPN as a college football analyst. He is part of the College GameDay crew and has created great second career for himself after his playing career ended abruptly in the mid-2000s for the Cincinnati Bengals. You can tell if Pollack does not believe players are putting forth a genuine effort, then those players are probably mailing it in.

Pollack has every reason to call out his beloved alma mater’s defense after that awful showing.
