Tales From the Tailgate UGA vs. USCe: REDUX

Anticipate a lot of the following on Saturday. Hopefully the afterglow will be set to a far less tragic Hall and Oates song.

Here's the return trip for the Cocks to Athens last year... I'm the King of Wishful Thinking right now, hope that doesn't change in a couple days.

Michael Bennett - OUT FOR THE YEAR

With a torn ACL per Radi at ESPN.

Damn, just damn.

Game Recap: My Thoughts, Unfiltered

Get off me, son. 
When you're trying to win a national championship, you beat the hell out of people along the way. Some decent teams, some cupcakes, but you beat the hell out of some people. That's what Vandy got handed on Saturday - an ass whoopin' of epic proportions.

In fact, I believe it was their worst loss since 2003, when someone beat them 48-0 (if anyone remembers who, feel free to drop some knowledge in the comments).

Secondly, Todd Gurley is really, really good. In fact, Marshall and Gurley are really, really good. I heard "Todd Gurley can I have your baby?" from Wes next to me about 50 times.We've got a power back who's fast and a fast back who's powerful.

Then you've got Ken, who's also a back who could find a lot of carries on any other team, probably start. We haven't had a guy who can split the safeties on a carry up the middle in a while, and the fact that we have two is ridiculous.

We're very good on both sides of the ball right now. If all goes to plan, this weekend should bring happy times for Athens folk. I think 10-I-C will score on us, but our offense should have a field day. Big doses of the freshman TBs.
