Your Gator Bowl First Half Open Comment Thread

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Today is your last chance to watch the Georgia Bulldogs take to the gridiron this season. Let's make it count.

It's been a while since the Dawgs have taken the field, and it's likewise been a while since we've taken to the internet here at Dawg Sports for an open comment thread. But I'm confident that you folks remember the drill.

Now the question is, do the Georgia Bulldogs? Bowl games are always a crap shoot, decided in large part by a witch's brew of variables: suspensions, injuries, motivation, the after effects of bad buffet crab legs. Really it's anyone's guess which Georgia football team shows up. But then, Nebraska is dealing with many of the same obstacles to execution. Georgia stands as an 8.5 point favorite over the Cornhuskers for this one, but as in all bowl games, that means very, very little.

I am heartened by the fact that Nebraska's defense is has struggled as much as ours has. And by the fact that Tommy Armstrong, Jr. is not a likely candidate to exploit Georgia's weakness in the secondary. But then again, neither was Georgia Tech's Vad Lee and we all know how that turned out. And that's before considering the suspensions of Josh Harvey-Clemons and Sheldon Dawson.

As I told the guys from Corn Nation earlier this week, and as we've seen for most of this year, the key for Georgia is to get Todd Gurley going. Gurley may be the only player mon the field in Jacksonville today with the ability to take over the game. If he's healthy, well-conditioned and ready to go I don't know that the Huskers have an answer for him. And if Nebraska has to play 7 or more men up in the box to stop him, it means good things for Hutson Mason. Gurley begins the day, despite a myriad of injuries that have lasted literally from the beginning of the season to the end, with 903 yards rushing and a reasonable shot to break 1000. If Gurley goes over 120 yards rushing today, I like our chances.

Here's wishing you all a happy New Year, and a Bulldog victory.

Go 'Dawgs!!!
