1. Does Spurrier REALLY have anything up his sleeve for Georgia? In years past Steve Spurrier has been at his very best as an underdog. Just when people were starting to count him out, the Head Ball Coach has been able to come up with something to confound the opposition and find a way to win a big game. Two years ago at Florida, for example, his offense rolled up over 400 yards against a defense that would eventually lead the Gators to the national championship. South Carolina had the potential winning field goal blocked on the last play of the game and the Gators survived 17-16.
It’s Thursday, and there is still this nagging sense that Spurrier, who loves to beat Georgia more than anything in the world, will figure out something to keep this game close on Saturday.
The problem is that his best offensive option, wide receiver Kenny McKinley, has a pulled hamstring and might not be able to play. The South Carolina defense looks good on paper but was a little slow/tired in the second half against Vanderbilt.
A year ago Spurrier sandbagged the Bulldogs by praising them early in the week and then beating them 16-12 in Athens. But does he have any real options for this game?
