I’m not sure how big a deal it’ll turn out to be in the vast scheme of things, but one thing about Georgia’s schedule I like is the week off between the Clemson and South Carolina games. Ordinarily, early bye weeks strike me as kind of a waste, but in this case, it’ll give the staff the chance to prepare thoroughly for each opponent. With a new quarterback and the total overhaul on defense, that seems useful.
Meanwhile, South Carolina faces two potent offenses in Texas A&M and East Carolina before hosting Georgia, and its defensive coordinator still expects to have his game plan for Georgia prepared before the start of preseason camp. Knowing Spurrier, the ‘Cocks won’t wait until game week to start implementing it, either.
