One of the reasons I crave college football so much is because it's the only time of the year that I live for a week at a time. Wins stay with me for 6 days, while losses stay with me for 364 days. Tomorrow, the 6th day is over and at 9:00 PM on ESPN2 we find out how I'll feel about the next 6 days or the next 364 days.
Ole Miss is not a great opponent. They have a couple of playmakers on defense in the areas of speed and strength. Overall, their scheme is not great, it doesn't take anyone off guard, and it's not hard to plan against.
Offensively, they are in worse shape. UT's former Shockley (without the whole "winning" part) has not grasped the offense like they had planned, which I attribute to his short amount of time with the playbook at his fingertips. However, I also attribute his short amout of playbook experience to him being too fucking stupid to get into college on time.
To put it bluntly, in the Ole Miss area of the game, they suck.
However, UGA has shown flashes of brilliance on top of flashes of stalling, stuttering, playing without heart, coming out flat, and looking confused. Which team will show up tomorrow? Bet your ass it will be the former and definitely not the latter.
Every season we have a game where we fight and crawl to get back in it. If you'll recall from the history books, when this happens, we usually do not come out flat for another game the rest of the year. Hell, a glorious example would be how we played what I would consider our best game EVER in 2004 against LSU, came out flat the next week and lost to UT, and then beat Florida later on.
Hot-Flat-Hot. It's like a good looking girl with a great butt and no boobs. You start at the bottom and work your way up. The middle ain't so great, but it finishes well.
Expect Stafford to start, Cox to play a ton, and the playbook to be opened. The last part was taken from an article I read today in the AJC where Richt basically said he hasn't let the QBs dive into the playbook enough and now's the time. Hell I hope so with UT on the horizon.
Anyway, I think we'll be amped up for this game and we'll have a chip on our shoulder the size of Colonel Reb.
Ole Miss: 10If Geno put his picture up they'd have to rename the site "Hot or ____.com"
Ole Miss: 13
Until next time kids.
Be safe (and Go Dawgs!)
