Thoughts on USC vs. UGA

Last night's game was an instant classic. There were three games within the game - early on when USC dominated for the first full quarter, the middle of the game when the Dawgs took over and went ahead by what felt like a very comfortable lead, and the last quarter when the Dawgs started to unravel a little bit but stood firm when they needed to - blocked PAT and the fourth and goal in the last thirty seconds.

The referees again seemed to call things a bit one sided - a personal foul on one of our defenders for a "horse collar" tackle which wasn't but at least two no-calls on USC tackles that were much more violent.

The crowd was great as usual and the USC fans did their part. I don't have a lot of hatred for USC although I always look forward to the game because it is often a close border-war SEC battle.

I would like to see the defense make a bit more sure tackles and would like to see our linebackers do a bit more controlling the middle. I was glad to see us finally, and I mean finally, use our speed in innovative ways, such as the reverse to Smith for the touchdown run. I have been clamoring for such plays for the past year-plus.

I will post some pictures in the next day or so.

Here's hoping that UGA can carry on good things in Fayetteville next week.

The other USC game was exciting too, though sloppy.
