Let me preface the remainder of this post by typing I have no idea what's going to happen Saturday
They sport the 110th ranked offense in college football. That's good enough to be ahead of teams like Miami of Ohio and Kent State, but not quite as good as Louisiana-Lafayette or North Texas. They're in such disarray that their president and AD Pete Boone has already thrown ol' Nutt under the bus for having a team that lacked "passion" and is currently doubling back to take another shot should his tackle football coach lose another one at home.
I mean, you know things are bad when Pat Boone's brother is calling the shots.*
But what's worse is the fans felt the need to buy advertisements in local papers to voice their displeasure and anger. The group Forward Rebels! is pissed. Understandably so. Back in Georgia we just have fans that are starting to agree with the AJC Sports department. Actually, maybe that's worse. I don't know. Close call.
Anyway. It all adds up to a road win that seems ripe for the picking. And truthfully, that's what worries me. If this Ole Miss football team has any talent backed by a few ounces of intestinal fortitude they'll come out ready to play 60 minutes, more if needed. It won't be a matter of which coach needs the win more. It'll be decided by the players that came to play.
When I get right down to it, I know these things to be factual: Georgia has the better players, but Georgia hasn't proved it knows how to win much of anything lately. I'm sure I'll have more misery tomorrow, but suffice it to say I'm not feeling as comfortable as I should be feeling.
*Actually, Pete Boone is of no relation to Pat as far as I know. But a couple more losses and he might take on the "No More Mr. Nice Guy" persona as well.
