This has the potential to be very ugly for the South Carolina Gamecocks. They're facing the #7 Georgia Bulldogs - who, mind you, have a Heisman hopeful at running back and a packed house in Athens, Georgia on their side - and are bringing to the party a defense that can't stop the run and only shows up in the second half and a quarterback making his first career start. Of course, those points could be moot when you look at the recent history between these two teams: the Gamecocks have won four of the last five meetings. But the deck is stacked very high against the Garnet and Black this evening.
If the Gamecocks can pull this off in Athens, this very well change the complexion of a season many have already wanted to just throw out and start over. On paper, though, it looks like it will be a very long night for the visitors. The good news: they have nothing to lose and may be coming in with less expectations than the team on the other side of the football.
