Friday News and Notes: Conference Expansion Possibly Imminent and More

New, 4 comments

Greetings, folks. Here's the news for today:

Report: Pac-10 to strike first with blockbuster bid for half the Big 12 - Dr. Saturday - NCAAF  - Yahoo! Sports. It would appear that the Pac-10 is going to try to make the first domino fall on conference expansion. Stay tuned...

USC will play Georgia at noon on national TV - GoGamecocks Newsletter - TheState.com. USC will open SEC play on Saturday, Sept. 11, when the Gamecocks entertain the Georgia Bulldogs at Williams-Brice Stadium. This is obviously the workings of the WWL

As far as our chances in the game, I don't think they are taking a hit because of this. Georgia fans will probably point out that the heat will bring out our problems with depth and that a tamer crowd will make things easier on Aaron Murray. I don't buy either idea. Southern football players train to play in the heat, and we all know from experience that the crowd can get pretty loud day or night in the W-B. Pointing this up, we also know that many classic games have been played between these two teams during the day in Columbia.

Now, for the fans, this stinks. We all know how hot it's going to be.
