Georgia, Oh Georgia

Arkansas (13-4, 2-1 SEC) at Georgia (10-5, 1-1 SEC)

Tip: Saturday, 6PM CST
TV: FSN (Dave Neal, Eddie Fogler)

Georgia, oh Georgia
That state is gay through and through
Just this old sucky, crappy song
Keeps smelly Georgia on my mind

Ray Charles couldn’t have said it any better as the Razorbacks prepare to hold their collective noses and enter the state of Georgia for a showdown with the Bulldogs in Athens on Saturday night.

The Hogs coming off of their worst loss of the year (I’m going with the South Carolina loss over Appalachian State because of conference significance), take on the 10-5 Bulldogs team led by one of my favorite SEC names – Sundiata Gaines.

(Sundiata. Sounds like Pinata. So let's the beat the hell out of him Saturday night with a stick!
Gaines, Georgia's all-time leader in steals, averages close to 13 ppg while backcourt mate Billy Humphrey also averages around 13 ppg.)

We pretty much owe the Dawgs from last year's disappointing 67-64 home loss and this win would go a long way to making up for the South Carolina disaster the other night. God, I'm still shaking my head over that one.

I'm going to avoid a prediction this time except to say that Arkansas will dominate Georgia in some aspect Saturday night.
