I’m not picking on Andy Staples for writing this…
Which of the SEC’s new members will find success sooner? In the short run, the answer is Missouri, but in the long run, it may be Texas A&M. This season, Missouri will get Georgia at home in a suspension-weakened state on Sept. 8. Should Missouri win that game, the SEC East race will get much more interesting.
… because (1) he’s not actually predicting a Georgia loss and (2) he’s far from being the only pundit raising that issue.
But I am wondering how much credit Georgia is going to get if it wins in Missouri and whether the punditocracy will then start talking about how formidable the Dawgs look when they get the suspended players back.
Nah… who am I kidding? About that time, Spurrier’s schedule bitching will be revving into high gear. Ooh, look, shiny toy!
