Mizzou tickets???

Looking for 2 tickets to the Mizzou game.  Making last ditch effort to get over there and see the game since this is as close at the Dawgs play to me these days.  It's right around the corner.

Also, does anyone know the sections we'll be in?  If I'm buying through Stub Hub, then I want to at least be close to our section(s).

Official Kickoff Times for Weeks 1-3

You can find it here.

As for us, the nooner vs. Buffalo wasn't a surprise.  Mizzou HAD to be a night game, all things considered.
FAU, tho?  Wow.  7:30 Between the Hedges.  Could be a festive tailgate day.

6 more non-football Saturdays and it's GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO time.

Kickoff Times

Kickoff times for the first 3 weeks of the forthcoming season will be announced by the SEC tomorrow a.m.
TD over at GA Sports Blog has his projections for our entire season and I think they're spot on.

If the Mizzou game isn't at night, I'm going to kick & scream like a petulant child in the midst of a furious Walmart fit.

Repeating football history

LC recently asked who we thought our biggest game was this year and I said SC because of a number of reasons.  It got me thinking if we had ever lost 3 in a row to the g-cocks and the answer is NO! 

We've lost 16 times to them over 100 years of football and 6 times they've beaten us in back to back years but never ever have they beat us 3 times in a row.  In fact, we've only lost 3 in a row to 18 teams in our football history and only 14 of those were over consecutive seasons.

Looking at overall records of opponents, South Carolina is closer to Kentucky and Vanderbilt than anyone else.  So in the most basic of terms, we need to put them back in their place.

A few more historical facts:
  •  Our only other meeting with Missouri was a 1960 Orange Bowl victory (14-0)
  • 10 years ago we went 13-1 and won the SEC
  • 20 years ago we went 10-2
  • 30 years ago we went 11-1 and won the SEC 
  • and 70 years ago, we won the 1942 National Championship
Here's to history and hoping that we can repeat some things.
