Bye Week Musings (Track 'Em Tigers)

Written by Cole Locascio

Am I the only one… that feels as if the final score last Saturday wasn’t an accurate depiction of the Tigers’ actual on-field performance? The secondary continued to struggle early on against the quick, point-and-shoot passing attack from the Spartans, and Nick Marshall had what was, in my opinion, his worst passing showing of his career at Auburn. However, do I think this team is capable of making the playoff? Absolutely – a few things just need to tighten up on both sides of the ball in order for that to happen. Consistency is key.

Georgia opened as 3.5 point favorites on the road against South Carolina this week… Maybe Vegas knows something about the Gamecocks that the general public just simply doesn’t see. Did the bookmakers even watch a single minute of the Texas A&M-South Carolina game? Go back and look at what that explosive Aggie offense, which Georgia most certainly has as well, generated against such a mentally weak, vulnerable Gamecock defense – even on South Carolina’s home turf. How can you not believe, with a bye week to boot, that Georgia won’t be able to do the same?
