Check out the listing at quarterback on the South Carolina depth chart the OBC released yesterday.
Either Connor Shaw is a real prodigy or Spurrier still hasn’t figured out a way to get inside Stephen Garcia’s head. I know which one I’d put my money on.
Whatever the reason… please, please, please play a true freshman QB against Grantham’s defense, Steve. He’ll take any kind of break he can get.
With all the “hot seat” garbage swirling about (or “need to step it up” chatter, if you prefer), it’s almost bracing when you read something this straightforward from Chris Low, who, whatever else you might say about him, isn’t a Georgia homer:
Jake in Birmingham, Ala., writes: Mr. Low, how do you think Georgia looks overall with the start of the season here in a little more than a week?
Chris Low: Great news on defense for the Bulldogs with the way Justin Anderson at nose and Darryl Gamble at outside linebacker have played this preseason. Obviously, redshirt freshman quarterback Aaron Murray can’t turn it over, but he has plenty of weapons around him. The Bulldogs are a little beaten up right now in the offensive line, but their kicking game should be one of the best in the country. If Murray is steady and keeps his interceptions under 10, I think Georgia can win 10 games.
Jonathan Chait is right about this one – the Big Ten Great Realignment Debate is tailor-made for political wankery of the first order.
Hard to believe nobody’s stepped up to grab the opportunity.
