Hello Georgia Fans, I don’t even know where this week has gone, let alone this entire football season. But it’s that time in the season for Georgia-Auburn to match up for the “The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.” Auburn and Georgia have been going at it since 1892 – now that’s tradition.
Not only will this be a traditional SEC match-up for Georgia against an impressive No. 7 opponent, it will also be the second time Georgia has faced off against a former teammate in the quarterback slot. In late September, we all remember Zach Mettenberger making his appearance back in Athens after being released and transferring to a junior college, later to resurface in a D1 SEC school. Yeah, so does Nick Marshall. Gotta love when things just lace up nicely.
Nick Marshall was released back in Feb. 2o12, transferred to Garden City (Kansas), later to be offered the opportunity to come to Auburn. Not that bad of a turn around, if you ask me, but I think that also might be a reoccurring theme in Auburn this year. Their season took a positive turn and has not slowed down since. Now let’s hope the Dawgs can keep all the War Eagle cries to a minimum on the Plains.
Georgia will regain Arthur Lynch who has been on the sidelines since Nov 2 when he got bruised up by the Gators, and Conley who has been missing since Vandy. It will be nice to have these men back on the field. Again, Georgia is in a MUST win situation to keep the SEC East title dream still alive.
To make this Saturday even more appealing – the series is tied 54-54. The opportunities and story lines are excessive. I can’t wait to see how the Rivalry plays out. Just another SEC and Top-10 opponent, no big deal. I feel like it has been another team for the Dawgs. But catch all the action for yourself on CBS at 3:30 p.m.
Until then Georgia fans, remember to Hunker Down and Go Dawgs.
