The University of Georgia Bulldogs are once again the #1 ranked team in the country after blowing out Oregon in Week 1 and easily dealing with the Samford Bulldogs in Week 2. They got a boost from Alabama struggling with the unranked Texas Longhorns in Austin and made the jump to #1.

Georgia’s center Sedrick Van Pran spoke with the media on Monday morning and gave some interesting insight into the offensive line. He explained why right guard Tate Ratledge is nicknamed ‘Chuck’. Names of UGA players have been talked about A LOT already this season.

This is the same Tate Ratledge who showed up to UGA’s National Championship game rocking an incredible mullet and mustache.

Georgia Bulldogs center Sedrick Van Pran explained that Tate Ratledge got his nickname from his striking comparison to UFC legend Chuck Lidell, which explains everything:

Sedrick Van Pran also revealed the mantra that UGA’s offensive line has been tossing around, and then quickly backpedaled and said he wasn’t sure if he was supposed to make it public:

The Georgia Bulldogs will now play travel to face the South Carolina Gamecocks in Week 3. Their stadium was recently revealed to be the loudest stadium in the SEC Conference by a long-time SEC official.
