Wednesday Dawg Bites is looking toward the weekend

Mizzou has cranked up their offensive output in recent weeks. Given Georgia’s spotty defensive play at times, combined with a Noon kickoff, could things go awry on Saturday?

The Red & Black takes a zeroed in look at the Tigers resurgence.

Speaking of the Tigers, here’s a primer from their side of things. Most importantly - as of Tuesday they had 59 scholarship players available - six above the minimum needed to play. In other words, it looks good for both teams to play on Saturday.

News that Jordan Davis is closer to returning is definitely good. Other than Richard LeCounte, his absence in the middle of the defensive line has been a major reason for defensive missteps this year.

Shane Beamer’s arrival at USC means another thing - Kirby Smart up and going with his coaching tree.

The leaving the door open just in case has worked at least once for Georgia when a top target leaves home. Could it lure one, and maybe two back toward home? Keep an eye on the Arik Gilbert storyline.

Outside the SEC, the Michigan - Ohio State game is officially a no go. But if you don’t think there won’t be at least an attempt to get a path blazed to get OSU somehow into the CFP, I’ve got a book on positive role models and Urban Meyer’s Gainesville years for sale.

Go Dawgs !
