07:25 AM ET 10.28 | On Saturday night, Mark Richt could barely watch, but things eventually worked out in his favor and now sets up a showdown this coming weekend with Georgia-Florida. Thanks to South Carolina's 27-24 win over Missouri in overtime Saturday night in Columbia, Mo., the Bulldogs' flickering hopes of three-peating as SEC Eastern Division champions remain alive, if not just barely. So, of course, are the fleeting hopes for Florida as well. Both teams still have a mathematical shot at reaching the Georgia Dome. But that is absolutely dependent upon a win this Saturday. ... Richt said knowing the mathematical possibility still exists does provide some motivation. "Knowing that we're still trying to win the East, knowing we're needing help and everything, it certainly provided more motivation for me," he said.

The big question for the Dawgs is how many players will be back from injuries?

Anyone watching the Mizzou-UF game should know how to beat the depleted Gators. If UGA's front 7 can't squash UF's running game and traumatize Murphy, then the Dawgs deserve the consequences of that failure.

more like battle of the beaten-downs. Who has the better trainers/docs?

Neither UGaly nor da Gatahs need any extra motivation for this game. Motivation comes built-in.

Reason: He stated the obvious about the Gators.

UGA's defense can make even their offense look good.

I see the possibility of UF coming out of the WLOCP on top. Do you, oh Gator-impaired Robster?

No the big question for Georgia is their defense, can they stop "anyone"??

The possibility exists, yes. I will not be holding my breath, though, O Creamsicle-Impaired Man of Tin. The recent memory of being bulldozed by Misery is still very fresh in my mind, even after a bye week

It makes me wretch to read these ancient aqua-lizard fans sulking and mewling about their Gators. Do you think crocadilians would've survived 250 million years if they weren't advantageously designed tough mofos? What? You don't think an alligator missing a forelimb and a few teeth can't catch, drown, and eat a bulldog? Aren't you forgetting the Dawgs 2-decade mind-**** about UF? You think that just goes away after two Murray-led victories?

Sheesh. Freakin' Gator fans hiding behind stark realism. Well, you are not fooling anyone, you blue & orange tragedians. You want this win, bad. Beating Georgia would make your season, redeem the year.

By Jimminy, walk 5 years in Creamsicle shoes through Hamilton's tenure as AD, then and only then, will your plaintive bleating find a sympathetic ear!
