Banal Gameday Predictions – Tennessee Edition

Buck says: USC 37, UT 20. If there was ever a must win for South Carolina since joining the SEC, this is it. Every scenario that leads to the SECCG starts with awin against UT. A loss doesn’t mathematically eliminate the ‘Cocks, butrealistically wouldbe a mortal wound. UT scares me, simply becuase they’vebeen able to hang around with some pretty good teamsfor a while, and should’ve beaten LSU in Baton Rouge.But theVols are seriously depleted and demoralized, so I think we jump on them early and often. Look for another big game from the offense, starting with the opening drive. The defense needsa lock down performance to get their confidence up with Arkansas coming up next.It will be good to see #21on offense again, I’ve missed him so…

Tbonesays: SC 38, UT 10. What Buck said, but with better D. I think UT might score oncein their opening couple of series, but look for Travian Robertson, Ladi Ajiboyeand Devin Taylor to have big days from then on. Notice a certain someone missing from that list? So doI. So. do. I. Anyway, on offense I thinkGarcia is due some props on the national level, and this might the game for it to happen. BONUS prediction: two weeks is not enough to fix what’s wrong in Gainesville, UGa rolls.
