To his credit, Dr. Saturday admits up front that he didn't see last Saturday's Georgia-South Carolina tilt, so he is to be forgiven for misreading the mere numbers, which tend to be more useful in assigning blame than in apportioning credit.
How did the Gamecocks lose this game? By facing a Bulldog defense that truly bent without breaking, holding tough in the red zone against a South Carolina offense that looked a lot like the Georgia offense of the mid-'90s: unstoppable between the 20s, but limited in the red zone.
Numbers tell us a lot, but there are many things numbers cannot measure . . . and what fun would football be if everything could be reduced to mere mathematics? This ain't Logopolis, and we should be grateful for that fact.
