As if we expected anything other than pure insanity between the hedges.
The past 10 times South Carolina and Georgia have played, only twice had the final margin been more than 11 points. Saturday’s showdown between two teams with SEC East title hopes might go down as the most exciting of the bunch, though.
“Georgia outplayed us,” South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said, “and somehow we won the game.”
The 12th-ranked Gamecocks won the topsy-turvy contest at Sanford Stadium, 45-42, against a Georgia team that was desperate to avoid an 0-2 start. Spurrier said he’d never seen anything quite like what he witnessed as the game barreled toward its conclusion.
