Comments

On Saturday against Kentucky, Georgia is either going to be very angry or still in despair and distracted by their shocking loss to South Carolina. I think an angry Bulldogs team will show up. The Wildcats might be able to knock off the Bulldogs if they had didn’t lose their starting QB a few weeks ago. That’s been a disaster for Kentucky. The cats will fight but fall to UGA.
