UGA 14 (3-0) South Carolina 7

Well it wasn't pretty, but it was a win! I'll take it however I can get it. Yes, it probably means that we are going to fall in the polls again, but ya know I never agree with the polls anyway. LOL

It may have been ugly, but I wasn't really surprised. Anyone familiar with this rivalry shouldn't have been surprised. These two teams have a tendency to play like this. In the last 5 years the winning team has scored less than 20 points. All I can say this week is thank God for the defense!! Whew!! They won this game for us that is for sure.

Here are the stats for the day. They are ugly. LOL

1. Stafford was 15 of 25 for 146 yards and no touchdowns. He did rush a few times and got some major yardage on a couple (17 and 30 yards).
2. Moreno rushed for 79 yards on 20 carries and 1 touchdown.
3. The offense had 252 total yards.
4. While kickoffs are still a concern I have to say that Mimbs had one helluva punt from the endzone! I think they say it was 77 yards. Damn!! Now if we could only get someone who could kick off the tee. *sigh*
5. Our defense recovered a South Carolina fumble in the end zone for a touchback. Whew!! That kept them from tying the score. Whew!!

Like I said, it was an ugly game, but I'll take an ugly win over an ugly loss any day!! Now we look forward to next week and Arizona State. Now they are a little angry right now because they lost to UNLV yesterday in overtime. Again we will have to tread carefully.

Yeah, I was at work and saw it on-line. I got home last night and ended up watching the Auburn v. MS. State game along with USC v. Ohio St. with John. I still haven't seen my game. John said the last 2 minutes were not so pretty. I'll watch it tonight when I get home. Thank goodness for TiVo!!
