Lack of continuity has been another problem.
Rambo and Ogletree each served four-game suspensions to start the season. Cornerback Sanders Commings and linebacker Chase Vasser served two-game suspensions. Malcolm Mitchell began the season at cornerback as a fill-in for Commings, but Mitchell is now spending most of his time at wide receiver.
There were other adjustments to find replacements for the suspended players. The constant turnover in personnel, including some key starters, has robbed the defense of the confidence that comes with continuity.
An example: Jordan Jenkins, a freshman, said he hasn't had the opportunity to develop a chemistry with Ogletree.
"I haven't played with Ogletree so I'm just starting to sense what he's like and where he's going to be," Jenkins said. "I'm just starting to get a feel for what he can do and what I can do to help him."
Georgia has had little time with its projected starting 11 playing together in defensive coordinator Todd Grantham's 3-4 scheme.
Even so, that doesn't explain the confusion last week described by Rambo.
"Mostly we were just out of position and not lined up right," Rambo said. "We've just got to line up right and just show our ball skills because we have some guys back there that can make plays."
Jordan Jenkins said the communication problems are "one of the main things we're trying to fix this week."
"This is just a week to fine-tune all the individual stuff," Jenkins said. "We've got to get better because as a team we didn't do well. On a play certain individuals did better than others. We have to work out all the kinks that we had and just get better."
