First Quarter Open Thread

NCAA Football: South Carolina at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia and Kentucky are both teams who want to beat you in a close quarters rock fight.

We have more and bigger rocks, and we need to make that abundantly clear right from the jump. This Kentucky team is eminently beatable if Georgia executes well. I expect a big dose of the run game against a depleted ‘Cats front, and some play action off that. Brock Bowers and Darnell Washington both appear to be a matchup nightmare for the Kentucky linebackers, and seeing both have a big day is not only possible, but even likely.

This Kentucky offense is methodical, but has also been mistake-prone. Georgia is hard to score on if you can’t get yards in chunks, and they’ve made teams pay for turnovers with points. Again, I like this matchup.

Let’s do it.

Go ‘‘Dawgs!!!
