One reason for some guarded optimism going into Georgia’s opener is that, for once, the Dawgs haven’t been bitten too badly by the injury bug – Coates’ ACL being the one bad item, although he’s at one of the deepest positions on the team – unlike several other SEC teams that are already looking at fallout from injuries to key starters.

As the saying goes, sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.

Opening night!

"Overture, curtain, lights!
    This is it. The night of nights.
    No more rehearsing or nursing a part.
    We know every part by heart!
    (cane flip)
    Overture, curtain, lights!
    This is it. We'll hit the heights!
    And oh, what heights we'll hit!
    On with the show, this is it!
    (character procession)
    Tonight what heights we'll hit!
    On with the show, this is it!"

Yes, it is.

There are eleven games on the slate tonight, with four involving top 25 teams. On paper, nothing looks like a particularly compelling matchup, but we’ve got LSU at Mississippi State to tune into tonight on ESPN.

Of late, the series has been lopsided, to say the least. I don’t see that changing tonight. Miles already has his eyes on the BCS voters and I think he sees this as an opportunity for his team to make an early statement. LSU should cover the spread easily.
