Georgia’s Gurley “Doubtful” For Missouri Game; Tigers Can Shake Up The East Race With A Win

todd-gurley-missouri-georgia-2012Missouri will enter Saturday’s showdown at Georgia with a flashy 5-0 record and a fast-paced offense that’s running foes ragged.  Georgia will enter the game just ragged.

By now you’re aware that Mark Richt’s roster has so many holes in it that it could pass for a slice of Swiss cheese.  Malcolm Mitchell, Justin Scott-Wesley and Michael Bennett — UGA’s top three pass-catchers — are gone from Aaron Murray’s receiving corps.  Backup running back Keith Marshall is gone, too… done for the year with a knee injury.

If you were hoping that starting tailback Todd Gurley might be ready to rejoin quarterback Aaron Murray in the Silver Britches’ backfield, think again.  Richt threw a wet towel over the Gurley talk on Tuesday:

 

“I don’t really know for sure on Gurley’s situation.  I would say it’s doubtful.  I don’t know if doubtful is the best word.  He’s not going to practice (Tuesday); I know that.  Tomorrow we’ll see how he runs straight ahead.  Is he going to play in this game?  He could; I’m not going to count him out.  But we’ve got to prepare as if he won’t play.”

 

Whether Gurley plays or not, UGA will still come in as the walking wounded (not unlike Missouri when the two squads opened SEC play a year ago).  A win by Mizzou could really throw the SEC East into a state of turmoil.

Currently Florida and Georgia are both 3-0 in SEC play.  Missouri is 1-0.  South Carolina sits behind them with a 2-1 mark.  (Tennessee, Kentucky, and Vanderbilt are a combined 0-8 in league play).

If Missouri knocks off Georgia and Florida fall at LSU this weekend, Gary Pinkel’s revamped Tigers could be sitting on top of their division all by their lonesome.  Further, Florida and Georgia still play one another which means one of them will have an additional loss.  Florida and South Carolina still must play, too.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, it must be pointed out that Mizzou’s next three games will be the key to their Atlanta dreams.  After traveling to the Peach State this week, MU will host Florida and South Carolina on October 19th and October 26th.  Even with two of those three games at home, that’s a pretty salty test for any football team.

But for all you anarchists out there, pulling for Missouri when they visit Georgia on Saturday could be your best hope to see an SEC East Division race thrown totally on its head.
