Embrace the sports book.

Give ESPN credit.  As this “Week 2 college football betting nuggets” piece demonstrates, Mickey’s all over the brave new world of betting.

Note the story from Columbia:

Georgia Bulldogs (-10, 56.5) at South Carolina Gamecocks — 3:30 p.m. ET

  • South Carolina went 6-1 ATS with four outright wins as an underdog last season.
  • The under is 11-4 in South Carolina’s 15 games against teams with a winning record under Will Muschamp.

Boom led something of a charmed life last year.  We’ll see if that narrative holds up today.

Feel free to use this as a general game day thread for today’s CFB action.

    Let’s put this canon shot shit to bed. UGA is more talented across the board. Barring a plethora of turnover, I don’t see this close in the 4th.

    Over-under looks about right, but I’d take Dawgs & give the points.

    Yep….& Muschamp ain’t lining up. I got the dawgs in this one by 17+. The depth, talent and heat get to SC. Look for Fromm to have a big day.

    This is the kind of game a Richt era team would wet the bed in. Hopefully, Kirby shows the world we are here to stay. I see us pulling away in the 4th quarter unless we kill ourselves with turnovers.

      WAY too early to compare the two and really no reason to. Richt was a DGD and one of the best coaches UGA ever had, I appreciated him. But if you insist to compare, be fair and compare the first two years.

      I think we upgraded and am glad Smart is here, but the Richt insulting just gets old & is unnecessary. GO DAWGS!!

        No it isn’t. How many national title games did Richt play in?

          You seem like a young “woke” guy so i am sure you were still shitting your pants when CMR took over at UGA. The first 4-5 years of CMR were exactly like we are experiencing now with Kirby. The 2002 team was the best in the country and had there been a playoff would have won the MNC.

          The bed shitting didn’t start until the 2008 season (at least on a regular basis, some would argue the 2005 sugar bowl started the trend).

          That being said it was time for a change and I am glad we have Kirby.

          You can like one without trashing the other.

            ’07 and ’12 were pretty good teams too. Who knows what would have happened under a different format (4 vs. 2). Just wish the bashing would stop, I guess it just makes some feel better about themselves. Whatever it takes, I guess.

            Concur, it was time for a change…..need to move on. GO DAWGS!

            I’m not trashing Richt, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit here and let you old Richtophiles try to write revisionist history. Kirby took Georgia to greater heights in two years then Richt ever did. Fact. So stow your horseshit.

              Bullshit. Go back and watch that ‘02 team. That team would have matched up well with the ‘17 team.

              After that season UGA recruited at a very high level for many years just like now.

              I hope as a Dawg fan that Kirby gets a MNC or two (or more) but as of today after 2 full seasons he is equal to the first two seasons of Richt on the field.

              So stow your bullshit snowflake

                Pretty sure that is lost on some that the formats are different now. I mean, would a #3 ranked Georgia team have made a 2 team playoff last year. Or, would any of those previous teams that Richt had made the playoffs in a 4 team playoff??

                Just sick of the comparisons, too early to compare….let history write itself.
                Again, glad we made the change, we upgraded imo. Just no need for the Richt bashing. He was/is a class act and glad we had him as a coach.

                Now, its bout time to get it on with some ass kicking. Lawd knows SC needs one. GO DAWGS!!

    Honestly Tebow was better at this a couple years ago. It’s almost like he’s had a different job the past two years and hasn’t really paid much attention to what’s going on in college football.

    This was a historical RICHT shit-the-bed situation. Kirby DOMINATED. Dawgs are for real…better than 2017. This defense dominated. Lacounte is years better than Sanders. 3 is frosh…..jury out. But much better than Parrish. MaryBeth stronger than Katherine (suck it Mac). Stadium emptied in Q3. Nobody slows this freight train.
