I’ve made no bones about the downside – from the fan’s perspective – of this latest round of SEC expansion. But there is one part of the change I’m definitely excited about, how Big 12 offenses translate over a season in the SEC, land of the killer D. We’re about to get our first taste of that today.
I’ll have more to say about the Georgia-Mizzou meeting shortly. However, there’s an earlier game that should be worth watching, as Florida travels to College Station to take on Texas A&M. The tone of this one seems a little snippier than our game (of course, that may be because we’ve all been playing Where’s Waldo with the suspensions this week). Also noteworthy is that Muschamp has more direct experience dealing with Big 12 ball than Georgia’s staff does, although he downplays that a bit given TAMU’s new staff.
It’s a long season, so I don’t expect any definitive answers today. But it will be interesting to see how much of a clue we get.
