07:28 AM ET 09.26 | This Saturday's marquee matchup in the SEC offers a number of storylines, from it being a national title elimination game, of sorts, to Zach Mettenberger's start. It promises to be a weird day for Mettenberger in Athens. Not only did he grow there, but his mother Tammy has worked in the UGA football office for nearly his entire life. Mettenberger first came to work with her as kindergartner and literally grew before the coaches' eyes. He committed to Georgia. "I am very happy for Zach and his success," Richt said. "I've always liked him since he was a little boy. I'm really happy that he's doing well. I don't want him to have great success on Saturday, obviously. But other than that I'm really happy for him and his family. They are good people. He's doing well."

The wheels on the LSU bus go flat, flat, flat, flat. UGA by 21.

His return is not complicated, just beat them Dawgs like they were Arkie!!!!

Richt is taking no chances. He gave Zach's mom the week off with pay. Blood is thicker than water, you know.

It's not that big of a deal. UGA fans don't hate him.

The game will be played. Barring the unforeseeable, one team will emerge victorious. It is the way of things.
