For those of you still freaking out that OMG! MIZZOU SCORED 28 POINTS ON GEORGIA!!!, allow Mr. Connelly to provide some context.
Mizzou won the field position battle, finished every scoring chance in the end zone (thanks to that whole “only score via big play” thing), got a smidgen of turnovers luck, and created bigger big plays. All the things the Tigers needed to do against South Carolina, they did in a blowout loss. Cool, cool.
Three things here: one, Georgia brought its B-minus, C-plus game against a lesser conference opponent and still won by 25, going away. Two, that doesn’t mean Georgia can bring the same kind of game against, say, Auburn, and expect the same results. (Somewhat shockingly, I expect the coaches already know that.) (Yes, that’s sarcasm.)
Most importantly, how many times over the past few years have we seen the Dawgs bring their B-minus, C-plus game against inferior opposition… and lose? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
