Georgia-South Carolina game time set; Gurley honored

Georgia’s Oct. 6 football game at South Carolina will kick off at 7 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN,  the SEC announced today.

Georgia is ranked No. 5 and South Carolina No. 6 in this week’s Associated Press media and USA Today coaches’ polls. Both teams are 4-0.

On Saturday, Georgia plays Tennessee in Athens (3:30 p.m. on CBS) and South Carolina plays at Kentucky.

The 3:30 p.m. game on CBS on Oct. 6 will be LSU-at-Florida.  LSU is ranked No. 3 and Florida No. 11 in this week’s AP poll; the Gators are No. 12 in the coaches’ poll. Both teams are 4-0.

In other UGA football news today, tailback Todd Gurley was named the SEC Freshman Player of the Week for his performance against Vanderbilt. Gurley ran for 130 yards and two touchdowns, his third 100-yard rushing performance in four college games. He leads the SEC in rushing (101.5 yards per game), scoring (10.5 points per game) and all-purpose yards (164.2 per game).

Be sure to wear that visor Coach Spurrier. You know how we love to watch you throw it to the ground in disgust.

I prefer the 3:30 game but we have been doing pretty good in the night time spot so why change now. Either way it will be a big game for the east.

Yes it should. UGA should win a fairly close one in Columbia, SC.

No complaints here.

Would much rather listen to nessler and blackledge call a game than lundquist and danielson. nessler and blackledge are the best in the biz. enjoy verne’s voice, but danielson’s unoriginal statements and poor calls on controversial plays are sometimes too much to take.

The UF/LSU game at 3:30 deserved the prime spot. Will be both team’s 1st game on CBS.

I don’t really think the UGA vs USC game will be close. Based on the Vandy game (We won by 45; you won by 4 and had to pay the refs to not make a pass intereference call, to hang on). Looks like the DAWGS win by 41 in a cakewalk.

UGA need 100% focus on UT. Hard to beat UT three years running and if UGA does, it will be many, many, many decades since we did that feat. Possibly in 80, 81, 82 or most likely, the freaking 1940s !!!

Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Dogs.

Don’t look past TN. They can be dangerous with Bray behind center. And don’t even go there with comparing past games. Sure, we beat Vandy worse than SC, but SC held Franklin and MO to 10 points and it wasn’t even that close. Connor Shaw will be a problem and I don’t want to think about it until after the TN game. Just block, takle and hold on to the ball and we should be fine. Start off with our hair on fire and finish strong. Our schedule gets a lot harder from here on out.

By the way, the TN blogs are sayig they feel good about passing against UGA’s secondary and will be at full Rocky Top song……

Tennessee not in the ballpark this season, line playing better each game, Vandy with stunts gave SC all they could handle, although at home, SC has good defense, but GA has too much balance, too many weapons and a defense of their own, close till 4th quarter, RBs will tear hunks off in 2nd half with Murray hitting all over the field and Mitchell playing more snaps, they have nobody to cover him opening a stretch over middle for Bennett and a vastly improved and dangerous #15 along with King. TEs concentrate and not get too jacked so they catch the ball, plenty of room available in SCs scheme for damage there too. Lke to see Rome get more passes his way, needs to block better but hard to cover him with LBs. Undefeated going into Fl Im thinkin.

In quite a few SEC games Gary Danielson’s preparation is so thorough that he calls decisive offensive or defensive plays before the snap, and gets them right. I think both teams (Lundquist/Danielson and Nessler/Blackledge) are excellent, but I give the nod to Danielson based on seeming clairvoyance about what’s fixing to happen.

I am OK with Danielson and Lundquist as long as Tebow is not playing. I wish I could describe my friend’s Halloween costume a few years ago (he went as Lundquist), but I am betting the censors would not allow it.

Both teams look deep, fast, effective, and well coached. This looks like a real heavy weight fight. No slip up this week against UT and get ready for a real tense week.

After LSU played the way they played (it was only one game), this USC – UGA really may be the play in game to face Bama and a shot at the title.

I agree about Danielson’s clairvoyance. He calls a great game and very hard to detect any favoritism. Vern on the otherhand would make a great Sat. Night Live skit

All you have to do is look at the L.S.U. game and you can see just about anyone in the SEC can beat anther SEC teams on a given day , especially if the favored team is looking ahead like L.S.U. was with the Florida game in two weeks.
Georgia needs to stay focused on the Tennessee game like they did against Vanderbilt. One game at a time. South Carolina will be here soon enough.

Most teams other than LSwho or bama would drop farther from the 3 spot with a 12-10 win over an unranked team like Awbarn! Let us hope we play our best against UT and win so can hopefully pay back SC with a win. They were good enough to take what we gave them last year in Athens and do not confuse VU close game with them because they will both play like the MNC against us. Also the main focus is UT with their close game against Akron. UT thinking about UGA maybe? UGA fan happy to be back in USA from India! Sic em dawgs!!

UT is Next – We actually beat UT four straight from 2000 to 2003. And the four games in the overall series from 1973 to 1988. What is hard to remember was the last time they were favored to beat Georgia. I guess 2001, the hobnail boot game.

Glad to see most of UGA’s fans are more positive this week. You have to give the opposing team you are playing each Saturday your un-divided attention. If the Dawgs overlook Tennessee and worry to much about the SC game this Saturday we may hear nothing but “Rocky Top” all game long!
I hope we come out fully focused only on this game. Worry about SC starting about 8:00 PM. Saturday night.

Being at home doesnt mean squat.You lost at home last year to a not so good Auburn team which really cost you the division.All Spurrier did was whine about not winning the east because of Georgia’s schedule.I think Georgia will be on mission this year to shup him up by winning the game.If not playing Arkansas,Alabama or LSU means you win the east why is Vanderbilt not in the chase?

Even when the Cocks had the best season they ever had (4 losses) 2 years ago and went to the SEC title by default, if Ealey doesn’t fumble at the goaline, we would have had a 2pt conversion to possible tie that game in Columbia back when Aaron Murray was still a baby with no one good to throw the ball to…Then we gave then we gave them last year as we all know. That was the day everbody and they daddy wanted Richt fired (He’s won 14 straight regular season games since then by the way). So the only way South Carolina (who’s not as good as they were last year) can beat us is if we help them beat us. I’d be more concerned about UF. But for now, we just need to focus on Tenn and take care of our house. Im out…GO DAWGS!

Looks like the lovefest continues with the gaytors. It is a joke how the fans I’ve talked to going into the UT game, thought they were going to lose 4-5 games this year. Now they think they’re going to Atlanta. If the Dawgs take care of the vols this weekend, which they most certainly should, game day should be in Columbia next weekend.

I know it doesn’t matter, but what arguement could you possibly have for an unimpressed UF team and an LSU team that doesn’t look that strong?
