UGA over South Carolina (history is on our side?)

Found this interesting bit at Dawg Sports:

“For what it’s worth, I would note that the Bulldogs’ 48-12 win over Western Kentucky marked the fifth occasion in program history on which the Red and Black scored exactly 48 points in their season opener.

In the four previous seasons in which the ‘Dawgs hung 48 points on the autumn’s inaugural opponent (in 1974, 1991, 2004, and 2005), Georgia averaged almost nine wins per year . . . and the Red and Black were 3-0 against the Gamecocks in those seasons.”

Steve’s boys scare me, not because they have better talent, but because it is such a big deal to the Gamecocks if they beat the Bulldogs. While UGA expects high standards, South Carolina will be “up” for UGA because they hope to achieve lofty standards.

More to come on this one…
