    After that absolutely beautiful game by the Gators, they follow it up with a trip to Athens in a game that could give us tons of momentum or be entirely depressing after the promise we saw on Tuesday.

    SOG: Georgia is up to 32.3% 3-point shooting, but they were right around 30% before K.D. Johnson made his UGA debut 3 games ago (he is 8-14 from 3). The SOG for this one will be UGA's 3-point percentage.

    Don't forget to pick an MVG!

    Rules:

    - Must pick the correct winner of the game
    - 1 point to whoever gets closest the final score
    - 1 bonus point to the winner if they pick one of the scores identically
    - 2 bonus points to the winner if they pick both scores identically
    - Tiebreaker is whoever is closest to the stat of the game (SOG)
    - If both pick the same SOG number then both get the point(s)

    UK loses to the Dawgs and we get b-slapped by them.

    And we are sure to have a let down after an epic game.

    And the game is at Stegman.

    Sounds like a 20 point drubbing.

    Making it sound like its going to be a three pointer shoot out. Georgia had several games in the 90s a few weeks back so this one is quite different from the norm.

    I’m with you Jeff. What’s the point of being a fan if you pick your guys to lose?

    Bingo. Unless you bet an amount equal to your emotional pain, as a hedge ;)

    You need to be quiet with sharing strategies. You might not lose another one at this rate!

    I should start a poll:

    Who is the shadiest coach in the SEC (in alphabetical order)?

    A) Calipari
    B) Crean
    C) Pearl
    D) Wade
    E) Other

    Georgia did what we could not: Beat a crappy UK team on their home court. Instead we got b*tch slapped when we had our chance.

    Georgia is undersized. The key will be taking advantage of that. Unfortunately what we did to UT will not work against them. They are much quicker than UT and nowhere near as big.

    Or best chance is forcing a half-court game where our size advantage should result in a W.

    Now waiting for getting abused on NBN.

    I think that we win this game unless Doug Shows, Ted Valentine, and (here is an oldie) Rusty Herring call the game. You could sub in Dick Paparo for Rusty. The Duke students used to chant "You suck ..." You can figure out the rest.

    UF: 85
    Dawgs: 78

    MVG: Castleton (if available), otherwise Payne

    SOG: 25%

    It's like asking who is the worst dictator. In terms of "shady" I'd say, (D), (A), (B) then (C). If it was "slimy", I'd go with (A), (B), (D), (C)...but if we're going with "sweaty", then of course Pearl is the all-time champ.

    Though who knows how Tarkanian would have looked without his trusty towel.
