“The Prayer.” Not a lot of fans know it by name, but I know that Georgia Bulldogs fans specifically remember the date November 16, 2013. The remember that day so vividly because it was the day that Nick Marshall hit Ricardo Louis with bomb of a touchdown pass to win the game against the Bulldogs to keep their seven-game win streak intact and crush Georgia’s dream of winning the SEC East.
The pass bounced off the hands of Tray Matthews. Former Georgia defensive back was right there when the place took place and he remembers it just as well as anyone else.
Harvey-Clemons left Georgia following the 2013 when then defensive coordinator for the Bulldogs Todd Grantham left to take the same position with the Louisville Cardinals. He sat out the 2014 season due to NCAA regulations and now he is ready to get back on the field.
According to AL.com, Grantham told Harvey-Clemons that the Cardinals would be opening the 2015 season with the Tigers and he perked up immediately. He was excited from that moment.
“When he said that,” Harvey-Clemons said, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal, “I just knew it was meant for me to come here, really. I’ve been waiting to play them again. I look forward to it.”
I don’t think anybody will be more ready to get the game started this year than Harvey-Clemons. The Cardinals and Tigers will play each other in Atlanta as part of the ACC/SEC Chick-fil-A Kickoff on September 5.
