By all accounts, Missouri was supposed to kick off against Georgia with all three of its senior receivers.

But Darius White (groin) will not play.

White and Jimmie Hunt both missed the South Carolina game, and with only Bud Sasser and a bunch of newbies to throw to, Maty Mauk and the passing game languished.

It’s a boon to get Hunt back, but the news that White will not play in perhaps the team’s most important SEC East game of the season isn’t welcome.

Georgia’s defense looked vulnerable against the pass when the Bulldogs played Tennessee, and Mauk is a better quarterback than Justin Worley. But the receivers still have to get open, and before UGA’s pass rush gets to Mauk.
