One thing I agree with Gary Danielson about in that clip I linked to earlier is that South Carolina appeared to be the team that came out Saturday overly amped up. That, despite Georgia being furnished with a quote or two during the preceding week that could have been milked for fake juice purposes.
“I wanted discipline and composure,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said after the game. “Sometimes when you get into all that ‘disrespect,’ you get chippy, make bad decisions. … I don’t like using disrespect as a motivating factor.”
In other words, Smart didn’t ignore it. He managed it.
I’ve seen some folks compare Saturday’s game to the ass-whuppin’ Alabama laid on Georgia in 2015, but, at least in this regard, Saturday reminded me more of what ‘Bama came in and did to Richt’s 2008 blacked-out team. Give me a cold-blooded, talented team over a fake-juiced one every time.
