Georgia’s wide receivers are better than they have been in long time. Speed! Playmaking ability! Size! Hardman going to have a HUGE year. He can do it all.

Georgia beat South Carolina so bad they’ve got a white running back in.

D’Andre Swift scores. This game looks like it’s on rookie mode for Georgia.

Georgia has allowed just 51 yards rushing to South Carolina through 3 quarters. Definitely answered any questions about reloading the defense after last season's departures

Bentley has thrown 32 passes. On pace for over 60. In my opinion that fits right into Georgia's favor. #UGA needs points on its first possession to take out the crowd.

Georgia has looked like the No. 3 team in CFB in this third quarter. Elite.
