Remember Last Year's Trash Talk From USC? I Bet Georgia Does


Trash talking is a big part of college football, especially in the SEC.

But trash talking a Georgia team just never really seems to end well for the culprit.

Last year, we saw Florida players say Jake Fromm can only throw slants and that Georgia simply does not beat the Gators; Georgia would go on to win 42-7. We watched Baker Mayfield run his mouth on a number of occasions; we know how that ended.

Even legendary South Carolina Steve Spurrier made a comment in the offseason. In response to a question about if trash talking makes the opponent play with a chip on their shoulder, Spurrier responded:

“If talking mattered, Georgia would’ve beaten us a lot more.”

Over the summer, former South Carolina TE Tori Gurley joined “The Paul Finebaum Show” and guaranteed that the Gamecocks would pick up the week-2 victory.

On Monday, Gurley revived those comments, tweeting:

“I said it back in July on the Finebaum show!!! Gamecocks over the Bulldogs!!! #Guarantee”

Let’s rewind to last year’s Georgia vs. South Carolina game.

Georgia (8-0) was a few days from taking on a visiting South Carolina (6-2) when Gamecocks defensive back Chris Lammons took his shot at Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm and the UGA passing game.

Lammons is no longer with the program – actually, he was just released by the Atlanta Falcons recently – but his words likely still linger in the minds of Fromm and Georgia’s receivers.

When asked which phase of Georgia’s offense was more of a concern, the run or the pass, Lammons quickly answered with a smirk: “The run. They can’t pass.”

Shortly after, Lammons likely grew to regret those words.

Fromm went out on that Fall November day and had himself a game, completing 16 of his 22 passes, for 196 yards and two touchdowns as Georgia went on to a 24-10 victory over.

No trash talk has surfaced yet for this week’s game (from a current player), but you know Georgia’s players have not forgotten last year.

If wise, USC coach Will Muschamp should instruct his squad to keep quiet until game time.
