UGA spewed second-quarter oil between and over the hedges

Derek Dooley AP

With five minutes left in the first half, Georgia held a comfortable 27-10 lead over what appeared to be a completed overmatched and outmanned Tennessee squad.

Four minutes later, the Vols took the lead and headed toward halftime… wait, what?

That’s right, in a span of 4:10, the Vols scored three touchdowns to take a 30-27 lead with under a minute left in the half.  A pair of UGA turnovers greatly aided UT’s comeback efforts, with an Aaron Murray fumble leading to the second TD in that span and a Keith Marshall fumble leading to the third.

A Bulldogs field goal with no time left in the second quarter tied the game at 30 in what was the SEC’s answer to the Big 12.

UT, incidentally, will receive the second-half kickoff, 30 minutes away from upsetting the No. 5 team in the country.

    How did UGA get out of playing South Carolina, LSU and Alabama?????

    They didn’t. They play S Carolina Oct 6

    They play South Carolina next week and the winner of LSU and Alabama for the SEC and thus National Championship.

    Careful Georgia fans. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. They so have the Vols on the ropes in the second half though.

    Without throw-it-away Bray torpedoing any chance of a Vols comeback, how is it possible for Georgia to be ranked #5? What happens when their lousy D plays a real offense?

    A win is a win. They don’t all have to be 30 point blowouts.

    How many close games did Auburn have the year they won the championship? W is W. It won’t matter how many close games they had IF they go undefeated.

    So. Carolina took most of the first half off against Kentucky, so next week should be an interesting game. Or totally wacky. Or totally boring. Will be fun to see the talking heads try to analyze that game, b/c truly NOBODY has any clue what version of the teams will show up for what quarters and what the game will be like.

    GA leads 27-17 late in the first half, has ball on own 1-yard line, predictably tries three runs and out, TN gets ball on 50, scores – new game. Aggressive play-calling by GA might’ve netted a first down and slowed Vols’ momentum.

    But the Richt-Bobo philosophy is clearly play not to lose, not play to win.

    GA may be winning in spite of some of our coaching!
