Jake Rowe’s key matchup piece got me to thinking how Saturday night’s game will be a little different from what we’ve seen lately.
On one side of the ball, Georgia’s defense is likely to see its first decent running game since Kentucky. Kevin Harris is a damned good back and Georgia is missing several key run stoppers on defense. Add to that South Carolina’s apparent lack of a deep passing game together with the possibility of Bobo starting a true dual-threat quarterback, and you’re looking at a situation where it may not be the Dawgs’ secondary getting stress tested.
Meanwhile, Daniels’ performance against Mississippi State upsets the apple cart in terms of how defensive coordinators have prepared for Georgia’s offense. Don’t forget that it was South Carolina’s play against the Dawgs last season that set the template for a dismal offensive showing for the second half of 2019. Does SC play it straight and give Georgia’s running game more room, or does it dare Daniels to prove he can do it in a second straight game, against a weakened secondary?
It’s gonna be more interesting than I thought, that’s for sure.
