9-15-14: When you have a Heisman hopeful in running back Todd Gurley you give him the ball whenever you can. Georgia didn’t abide by this rule in their 38-35 loss to rival South Carolina. The Bulldogs had a first-and-goal on the Gamecocks' 4 yard line down three points with a little over five minutes remaining. Hand the ball off to Gurley. Instead, Hutson Mason was called for intentional grounding to set Georgia back Marshall Morgan missed a 28-yard field goal.
Gurley ran for 131 yards and a touchdown, but the Gamecocks kept the Bulldogs' star from making a bigger impact. Georgia hosts Troy this coming weekend.
9-9-14: The UGA Bulldogs enjoyed some rest between their season-opening win over Clemson and next week's SEC showdown at South Carolina. Georgia has lost their last two games at Williams-Brice Stadium, losing 35-7 in 2012 and falling 17-6 there in 2010. Mark Richt’s squad has managed just 13.2 points per game in their last nine trips to Columbia. On the flipside, Georgia has recorded 27.5 points per game in home matchups with the Gamecocks during that span.
9-4-14: Expectations in Athens are now through the roof after Georgia’s 45-21 win over Clemson last Saturday. Todd Gurley is a man amongst boys. Gurley, who was already among the early candidates for the Heisman, set a school record with 293 all-purpose yards. That included a 100-yard kickoff return, which marked the turning point of the game. He rushed for 198 yards and three scores. The Bulldog defense dominated Clemson too. Georgia has a bye this week.
