Tuesday Bulldog Football Notebook
Whitley has had the blanks filled in often because his goal-line lick laid on Georgia back Washaun Ealey has been replayed plenty times since. Ealey had just hauled in a 3rd-and-9 throw from Aaron Murray and was about to break the plane when then-freshmen safety Whitley arrived at the same piece of real estate. The resulting collision rattled both the ball and some of Whitley's own circuits loose, though he had the apparent presence of mind to fall on the fumble for Bulldog possession. State kept a 7-0 lead as a result after one quarter, stayed up a point the next two periods, and broke it open late for a program-changing win. More personally the play was Whitley's breakout moment and since then he's established quite the reputation for laying lumber. "It doesn't really surprise me," he said of becoming a fan favorite. "I know how hard I'm hitting, because it hurts myself too!" Yeah, that law of action-and-reaction does work both ways when intense athletes meet…the hard way. Whatever...
