A savage preseason prediction

On the surface, this is a pretty standard looking preview of Georgia’s season — Dawgs go 9-1, with the only regular season loss at Alabama — but dig a little deeper and you’ll be rewarded with this:

November 28

Williams-Brice Stadium (Columbia, S.C.)

Series History: Georgia leads 51-18-2, but the Gamecocks delivered one of the biggest upsets in recent memory last season

Most Recent Meeting: South Carolina defeated Georgia 20-17 (2OT) on October 12, 2019

Georgia will be out for blood here, and as a result, South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp gets fired. The Bulldogs put up their highest point total of the season as Zamir White, James Cook and George Pickens all top 100 yards of offense. Throw in a special teams touchdown on a punt return, and this one is over early. Georgia tops 500 yards of total offense in route to a big win.

Score: Georgia 45, South Carolina 7

Boom getting Kirby’d the year after beating him?  As the saying goes, revenge is a dish best served cold and that’s about as cold a take as you can find.

    I really do think Boom is fired this year. He doesn’t have any cream puffs to pad his schedule. I think they struggle to get 6 wins.

      Will SC have enough money to pay buyouts of Boom and assistants and at the same time pay an in demand new coach and staff?

    I doubt this will happen. Kirby and Boom are buddies….no chance he runs up the score on him and gets him canned. Plus, why wluld he want to? Keep the coaches around that find a nut once in a blue moon, but keep their programs below the consistency of danger each season.


    • He beat him 41-17 2 years ago. He may not intentionally run up the score, but if Kirby can get it into the 40s before calling off the Dawgs, I guarantee you he’ll do it. Remember the last 7 for the chickens was in total garbage time where Boom had Bentley and the starters while Kirby had the last guys on the traveling squad on the field.

      It feels a little gatorish/ swamish/meyerfannish to swagger about thinking our coach can have their coach fired at will, simply by applying the beatdown we assume is going to happen.
      I remember last season’s “WTF just happened” well enough to figure maybe we ought to play them first, and should Boom get the boot we can crow about it then.
      UGA’s got a lot of talent and potential, but I would call the offense unproven, at best. We’ll know by the time we get to SC what to expect. For now I’m letting my Inner Munson out of his crate a little, just in case…

  4. I imagine Kirby has had this one circled for a year. We play them on Thanksgiving weekend and South Carolina’s lack of depth usually has caught up to them by then. Just as Clemson right now is a terrible fit for South Carolina that late in the season, we’ll play the same role with superior depth.

    Lanning gets a DC job and Muschamp comes into the fold.


    • No thank you at all. Steal his DC? Sure. But I never want boom around again

    • Now that his son is in school in Athens, I could absolutely see this happening if Boom is let go and Lanning gets an opportunity to run his own program. When Lanning gets hired, Kirby will have 3 guys who leave him for their own programs. Pretty good for a guy who’s only been a head coach for 5 years.

    These predictions sound like it was written by a 12 year old with too much time on their hands. 500 yards from which QB? With an OC that was fired by Tampa Bay and sucked with the Browns? Mike Gundy’s offense sure hasn’t missed him at OK state.

    I’ll take it a step further.

    Lanning takes a HC job in January and Boom becomes Georgia’s New DC – I actually had that prediction for 2022 – but what the heck.

    By the way, there is talent on that team. Their recruiting has been pretty good, especially between the trenches. There is a very real possibility that both USC jr. and UT jr. could catch UF by next year. The Gators are so focused on UGA that they are not paying attention to the teams behind them and they should… Expecting a rock solid Kentucky team this year, with a big, physical o-line, UTjr. to be better (just counting on their fan base to lose patience and blow up this rebuild) and for USCjr. to be better than people expect. The East is tougher than it looks..

  9. Not only would Boom get fired, but then Kirby will hire him as a defensive analyst

    SCU is not going to fire Muschamp this year. This is an all is forgiven year for every coach not named Smart, Saban or Mullens.

    The only way someone gets fired in the SEC this year is for off the field issues. I don’t see that happening.
