Comments

South Carolina won this game last season in a really big upset in Athens. This time the game is in Columbia and there are going to be Georgia alums head coaching both teams. Actually, that was the case last season because Will Muschamp also played at Georgia. I’m sure Mike Bobo would like to become the head man for the Gamecocks. If he can lead his team to a win over Georgia, that might help his cause. Georgia looked really shaky last week against Mississippi State. I don’t know whether it was a case of taking MSU for granted or what? Maybe Mike Leach’s offense is coming around finally. I think Georgia will win this one by at least 14 points.
