David Bennett's first press conference since the viral video Cats and Dogs may not have produced the next YouTube hit, but as always was entertaining. The Coastal Carolina head coach had high praise for Georgia head coach Mark Richt and the Bulldogs. The Chanticleers travel to Athens for a 1pm kickoff on Saturday. Coach Bennett brought up Joe Paterno's string of losing seasons at Penn State as a form of defense for Richt, who is on the hot seat after an 0-2 start to the 2011 season. Bennett spoke about the great tradition at Georgia recalling watching the Vince Dooley show as a kid and fond memories of listening to long time play-by-play voice Larry Munson.
Coastal has scored just one TD in its previous games against Division I-A schools and will be a heavy underdog against the SEC school.
