Takeo Spikes, new SEC Network analyst, predicts shocking upset for Georgia in 2022
Takeo Spikes is new to the SEC Network as an analyst, but the former Auburn linebacker and NFL star is out with a dramatic prediction in his first week on the job.
“I am completely sick of the disrespect that they’re putting on Spencer Rattler,” Spikes said on Tuesday from Atlanta at SEC Media Days. “And I didn’t even play quarterback. It’s so much the element of surprise. We talk about how can a defense prepare for a quarterback that they haven’t seen, and that’s what Spencer Rattler’s going to bring to the table. Defenses can’t really say, ‘I know what you do until I get 3 to 4 games on the book.’ … But I’ve really got this team upsetting Georgia at home.”
He then pointed to Benjamin Watson, a former Georgia player, on the set and said, “Make sure you’re close, I need to have your number on speed dial.”
Jordan Rodgers quickly pointed out that the producers from the SEC Network would cut the clip and save it for later, as the analysts debated if South Carolina could give Georgia problems in Columbia this season.
