TFP: The Devil is back in Georgia.
Washington Post: Georgia-South Carolina: A clash in the Spurrier-altered town. "If Georgia wins handily, and South Carolina falls to 1-2 and 0-2 in the Southeastern Conference, it could help in the long, long study of how many years it takes a city of 135,000 humans to transform from grateful to grumbling. Already several game reports from Aug. 28 mentioned the first-half boos during South Carolina’s dreadful opener against Texas A&M. Not so long ago, last century, anyone booing during any first half in Columbia would have been irrational." This isn't true, of course, but it's a nice lead and it is the WaPo after all, so facts be damned when they conflict with the meta-narrative. We were great fans then and we are great fans now. The fans may be the difference-maker tomorrow.
Dr. Saturday: Will the outcome of Georgia-South Carolina on Saturday decide the SEC East? Probably not, but it
could would eliminate any sort of shot for South Carolina.
FoxSports: Two reasons South Carolina could upset Georgia in Week 3. "If Davis, the 225-pound battering ram with a burst that can wear a defense down, forces Pruitt to bring a safety out of the secondary and into the box to stop the run, it could cause serious problems for the Dawgs."

GoGamecocks: Did you know that Mike Davis and Todd Gurley are good friends? "Gurley visited Columbia twice during the spring, and the 6-foot-1, 226-pound dreadlocked junior acknowledged he was recognized both times by strangers. 'They just asked me what I’m doing down here,' Gurley said this week. 'I’m like, ‘I can’t come to Columbia?’'" Sure you can, Todd! Come tonight. Drinks (lots of them!) are on us!
