Georgia-south-carolina
Week two of the college football season was jam-packed with great games that kept fans on the edge of their seats – Georgia’s Aaron Murray had a spectacular game against Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks and the Michigan vs. Notre Dame showdown came down to the wire. But the most surprising result came from the Texas vs. BYU matchup – the Cougars stomped the Longhorns, 40-21. The Longhorns gave up 550 yards rushing to the Cougars – BYU’s Taysom Hill had 259 total – an absurd number. It took just one day for coach Mack Brown to address the situation – he has fired defensive coordinator Manny Diaz.  http://t.co/TuILYGfSJV has learned Mack Brown fired Manny Diaz as defensive coordinator, one day after Texas gave up 550 yds rushing to BYU. — Chip Brown (@ChipBrownOB) September 8, 2013 Brown has already replaced Diaz with former defensive coordinator Greg Robinson: http://t.co/TuILYGfSJV has learned Greg Robinson, who ran Texas’ defense in 2004 and was serving as a football analyst for UT, r...

Spurrier, South Carolina upended by rival Georgia

ATHENS, Ga. When it was all over, Steve Spurrier walked purposefully into the northeast tunnel of Sanford Stadium past an oversized flag, a crazed student section, a band playing "Glory, Glory" at a decibel level far past comfortable and a mascot dancing for all the wrong reasons fresh off his first loss to Georgia since 2009. Spurrier's near-trudge was one of the...

Aaron Murray throws four TDs in Georgia win over South Carolina

Steve Spurrier Says His Gamecock Team Isn’t Very Good Right Now

Will the real Gamecock defense please stand up? Coming off a loss to Clemson, Georgia had to face the Gamecocks and what some believed was one of the best defenses in college football lead by Jadeveon Clowney, and the Bulldogs made it look easy, shredding the South Carolina defense for 536 total yards.

The game just ended, and four hours earlier, Georgia coach Mark Richt was a loser. Aaron Murray couldn't win the big one.
