Gamecocks Go Through Final Tune Up For UGA
Spurrier offered praise for the Georgia defense. "Georgia's really fast and strong up front," he said. Comparing Georgia's defense to Mississippi State's defense, Spurrier said Georgia is "probably just as good," but "maybe a little quicker in the secondary, but up front very similar." As a result, Spurrier expects a game similar to the opener: tight and low scoring, with extra importance on turnovers and special teams. "We know it's going to be a struggle. Hopefully their offense will struggle too. That's what we're hoping for. I wish I had confidence we could walk up and down the field, but we've not done it a whole bunch. If there's no turnovers in the game, unless one offense is just really, really good, you don't get a lot of scoring."
This week, the NCAA and SEC decided to start enforcing the conference ban on artificial noisemakers. Coach Spurrier offered his opinions on the matter. "Mississippi State is the only place that does it [brings artificial noisemakers]. I asked the ref beforehand, ‘Do you mean our fans could bring sirens in?' He said, ‘It's not that loud, I've been here before.' If you let them do it, you've got to allow everybody to do it, so that's a good rule. It is louder at other places, but you should have to make noise with your throat and voice."
Notes: Moe Brown will dress out for the game, but will not play as he continues to nurse an ankle injury. Mike West, Blake Mitchell, Chris White and Lanard Stafford are all expected to be at full speed on Saturday. ESPN continues to invade Columbia. A day after Desmond Howard was in town to film a segment, the game crew began to arrive. The production trucks are parked outside Williams-Brice Stadium, while sideline reporter Holly Rowe attended practice and spoke with players and coaches while members of the local media, still banned from practice, looked on with envy.
