- Looking to place blame on why Georgia lost its season opener to Clemson? The offensive line play might be a place to start.
- After an offseason of building hype, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney had a pedestrian effort in the Gamecocks' opener. Head coach Steve Spurrier said Clowney has to play better and be aware that everyone is watching him on every play.
