Athens — First, a few words about Charleston Southern. The Buccaneers aren’t a terrible team. Fact is, they’re 8-3. Fact is, they came close to beating Vanderbilt in Nashville, losing 21-20 to what is technically an SEC program. Fact is, they could make Georgia work for 20 minutes or so.

But that’s where the interest, at least game-wise, figures to cease. Georgia is favored by 45 points. (By way of contrast, Clemson is favored by 40 over Georgia State in a game being staged not far from here.) It will be hard for Georgia to focus  on Charleston Southern, seeing as how they just beat Auburn by 27 points, seeing as how Georgia Tech awaits — same time, same place — next week, and seeing as how everybody associated with UGA just wants to get this over and go home to root for Tennessee to beat Missouri tonight.

I could riff a bit longer about the weather — it’s bright but brisk — or sundry other things, but let’s face it: There’s not much to say about this game. I’ll be here to monitor the happenings, and I’d appreciate the company. And I thank you, as ever, in advance.

That Va.Tech loss is a gift that keeps on giving Bucky,Wake forest 6 Hokies 3 2 OT. Bucky loses to sub .500 team at home paired with a so so performance today against a 3-7 Indiana ,it may not be enough to move above #6 in playoff poll.

HAHAHA.....Eric said this was a good tune-up for the TO Tech runs.................WTF?

Does he not know these are 2 very different Teams and Styles? How many times was CS in the shotgun and how many times is tech in the shotgun?

Charleston Southern scores a touchdown but, for some reason, goes for two and fails.

Hey those scout team players have earned their playing time,Let em' Shine today.Make their Moms and Dads proud. Like playing YMCA football ,give them all a trophy. But I think the BUC's will take the Cash instead of trophies.

Shame we had to pay this school so much money to come to Athens for a light scrimmage...Auburn did it last week for free....

Maybe Mark Richt's sunglasses are too dark. Could be why he gets outcoached by Will Muschamp? Get some new "specs" Coach!....lol

Not too many style points for the Buckeyes today,but rest easy Bucky ,OH-IO State is holding  on to  the lead against the Whoosiers in Columbus .Which Barber college did you graduate from Bucky. A good eye to distinguish between Braids and Dreds.

I think your RSF QB will cause Urban some heart burn in games against better competition. Making a lot of questionable decisions with the football.

Damn, Andre Ware just dissed the SEC East ,Quote "I would rather see a rematch between the other Bulldogs(Miss State) and Bammer than BAmmer vs, Missouri Or UGA" then the fans would be guaranteed to see a game that would be competitive,
