Hard game to call today. The Georgia team that beat South Carolina and LSU wins today. The Georgia team that took in on the chin in Nashville would get a whipping. Honestly, today’s team lies somewhere in the middle of those two extremes, but it’s not easy to say exactly where.
They’re getting bodies back, which is good. Murray should have the most weapons he’s had to work with since the Tennessee game. And I think there’s enough there to give Auburn’s defense fits.
But you still have to be concerned about where Georgia’s defense is, other than rushing the quarterback and defending the middle of the field in the run game. I think we know what Malzahn will try to exploit. The linebacking corps simply has to play its best game of the season today. Can they? I have no clue.
And let’s just think happy thoughts about special teams play, okay? Also, Aaron Murray’s never thrown an interception against Auburn. That would be a nice streak to keep intact today.
I’m about to head out the door for the Plains, where I’ve never seen the Dawgs lose. Yes, I’m crossing my fingers that’s another streak that’s kept intact today.
Consider this your game day thread.
