Vols WR Rogers sees Georgia as 'just another game'
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Da'Rick Rogers has gotten plenty of text messages and tweets from people taunting him about Tennessee's meeting with Georgia. He swears he's not letting them get to him, though.
The Calhoun, Ga., native had committed to play for the Bulldogs but ended up signing with the Volunteers.
The sophomore wide receiver said he's excited for Tennessee (3-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) to face Georgia on Saturday, but it's not because he wants to show the Bulldogs (3-2, 2-1) what they're missing. Instead he's glad to contribute more significantly after having just one catch for a loss of 3 yards in Tennessee's 41-14 loss to Georgia last season.
Rogers is coming off a career game against Buffalo, a 180-yard, two-touchdown performance and ranks second in the SEC with 442 yards receiving.
