Georgia plays South Carolina on September 11 and it’s a big game by any measure. First, it’s an SEC game. Second, it’s an SEC East Division game. Third, fourth, fifth,sixth and so on...it involves Steve Spurrier.
There are lots of rivalries and traditions in the SEC, but not many run deeper than Georgia v. Spurrier. Bad feelings abound on both sides although Spurrier recently claimed that matchups against UGA aren’t really about him anymore. Sure they are -- at least in the minds of Bulldog fans.
Mark Richt and his coaches have five weeks to prepare their players for the trip to Columbia. In case they need some motivation ideas, I suggest they recount some quotes from the ghost of Spurrier past. Here are five gems that should get the Dawgs fired up and ready to pluck the Gamecocks when they travel to that sweltering cement monstrosity called Williams-Brice Stadium.
