South Carolina 16, Georgia 12
Don’t buy Spurrier’s anti-hype
Coach Mark Richt acknowledged that South Carolina had more energy than his team in the first half. For a team that prides itself on loving competition and playing in its first conference game of the year, that’s inexcusable.
Play better in the secondary
There were no obviously blown assignments, but South Carolina won most of the one-on-one matchups, most notably against Bryan Evans, who faced No. 1 receiver Kenny McKinley most of the night. McKinley had seven catches for 102 yards.
Stay away from Jasper Brinkley
Brinkley, a Georgia native and GMC transfer, was credited with just 5.5 tackles but it sure seemed like more. He stuffed the Bulldog rushing attack by himself several time and also had the game-sealing interception.
