    I watched. I thought it was hilarious that they showed Peyton crying all the time as a little kid. I am sure he hated that.

    I don't exactly have the warm fuzzies about this one tomorrow. The only LSU game I have watched this season was the game against Auburn and I wasn't able to stay awake for the whole thing. The thing that concerns me the most is giving LSU cheap points. In almost every game we've lost in the last few seasons we've given our opponent cheap points (pick 6, fumble for TD, fumble deep in our own territory, blocked punt for TD, etc.). The SC game wouldn't have been so close if we didn't have a bad snap on a punt (deep in our territory) and a bad snap on a field goal attempt.

    Murray is very streaky. If he comes out cold like he did vs Clemson, throwing the ball into the ground and throwing behind receivers it will be a tough day. He completed a lot of those vs. Clemson but there were no yards after the catch because receivers were having to fall down to catch the ball. If he comes out hot, it could be a very good day. LSU hasn't seen a back like Gurley this season and UGA hasn't seen a back like Hill (who would have been kicked off the team at Georgia) this season either. Given our propensity to give up a lot of rushing yards this is a major concern with Hill and Copeland. I think we may be better up the gut this season than last. We'll find out on Saturday for sure. On a positive note, Georgia struggles against running QB's and has not had many sacks this season but Mett isn't that kind of QB and IF (big IF) we can put some heat on him he may look more like the 2012 Mett instead of the 2013 Mett. Obviously he looks much improved under the new OC/QB guru. Will emotions get the best of Mett coming back to Athens? I don't know, but I'm not counting on it. I think his easy going personality may help keep him from getting wound up too tight for this one. I don't know what our young secondary can do with your top 2 receivers so I hope we can force you into 3rd & longs by stopping the run and then get pressure on Mett. Our OL has looked good at times this season and pretty poor at others. We've got to get some consistent play from them.

    None of this is earth shattering info I know. It is still SEC football, the team that can run the ball and stop the run (i.e. control the LOS) and doesn't turn it over is going to win. Boring but true. By game time I will probably have myself convinced we will find a way to win but right now I don't feel so good about it. I really believed we would beat Clemson and we should have but we didn't. As good as Murray has been you just never know when he is going to throw a pick 6 or put it on the ground. Batted balls are always a concern too with his lack of height and those can turn into big turnovers as well.

    They have beaten the spread against the Bulldogs two years in a row... Vagas is giving them 3 points, would you take them even up?

    This isn't Mississippi State. They haven't even played Georgia two years in a row. The last time they played us was in the SECC Game in 2011. The last time before that was 2008 or 2009 when the referee screwed us on the bullshit "celebration" penalty against AJ Green when he did absolutely nothing except catch a touchdown pass. LSU has beaten us the last 2 games for sure, but that was over the last 4 or 5 years.

    I am a believer..that we are due to win a big one. The ball will have to bounce our way some, but hopeful none the less.

    Two years in a row, the last two years that they played... a distinction with much of a difference ? You are right though it was '11 for the SEC and '09.

    The fact remains that they were favored both years and lost outright.

    Not to be dissuaed, Vagas has made Georgia the favorite again. My question to Jacob was, in light of the history, would he take LSU to win outright ?

    John, I'm not trying to be argumentative, but your facts are wrong.

    In the 2011 SEC Championship Game LSU was 12-0 and Georgia was 10-2 and LSU was favored by 12.5 points. Georgia dominated the first half but squandered too many opportunities to get points and build a lead. LSU dominated the second half and kicked our tails. I don't remember who was favored in 2009. It was settled by less than a touchdown on a late touchdown aided by a bullshit nonexistant celebration penalty on AJ Green who absolutely never showboats. I do think it is relevant that these were not very recent games. In the first of the 2 games you cited, virtually none of the players involved for either team would still be on the roster...only those who were redshirting or who have since redshirted could still be on either squad, so yeah, I think it is a distinction WITH a difference.

    I hear ya. I believe LSU can go into Sanford Stadium & come out with a win. As good as the 2 star RBs are (Yes, Jeremy Hill would still be playing @ Georgia.), I maintain the game goes through Mett. Georgia is giving up on average, 245.3 yards a game through the air. I think Mett has to go over 320 for LSU to win.

    I expect a 38-34 type of game.

    Actually LSU is 3-4.5 point road dogs. I bet a guy @ work today straight up. It was not a big wager @ all. Do I think LSU can win, yes. Will they, I hope so. Tough game.
