Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Greyson Lambert was beyond grateful to his offensive line after not getting sacked once in the team’s game against South Carolina two weeks ago, and showed his gratitude in the best way one can to an offensive line: feeding them.
Per Andy Staples of Campus Rush, Lambert made a deal with the offensive line that for every game he was not sacked, he would take them out for ice cream. The South Carolina game ended up in the group going to the local Ben & Jerry’s and if Georgia’s strong pass protection keeps up, Lambert could have some hefty ice cream tabs to pay.
This isn’t the first time such a tradition has gone down. Former Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray also took his line out for ice cream after sack free games.
And Georgia’s offensive line could be looking at another ice cream day after this weekend, depending on what happens in the Bulldogs’ important game against the ever-dangerous Alabama Crimson Tide. Lambert has completed an eye-popping 76.5 percent of his passes for 733 yards and seven touchdowns with no interceptions this season, but Alabama’s strong defense will be his and his teammates’ biggest test yet.
Needless to say, expect the offensive line to be working extra hard this game. Kickoff is slated for 3:30 p.m. on CBS.
