Mystery Solved

Talk about anti-climactic. The answer to the mystery of what Georgia's seniors had planned for this year's Florida game is that there is no mystery.

Rumors spread like wildfire after sophomore linebacker Darryl Gamble was quoted saying Georgia's seniors had something up their sleeves for Florida week after the Bulldogs' win over LSU last Saturday. The news came as a surprise to fans -- and to the seniors.

"That's been buzzing around, and I'm kind of confused as to where it started," senior wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi said. "I have no clue."

Senior Kenneth Harris has been Georgia's version of the White House press secretary since Gamble's quote, dodging tons of questions that he doesn't have the answer to.

"I wish I had a nickel for every time I've been asked that question," Harris said. "We don't have anything planned. We're just going to go down there and not worry about any gimmicks. We're just going to have fun and play ball. We don't have anything planned."

He said the team might have to put a gag on Gamble in the future, considering it was the sophomore who started all this hype for the seniors. Only Gamble said it's not his fault either. He was misquoted.

Gamble was the center of attention after his two-touchdown performance against LSU, and reporters happened to ask him his thoughts on last year's game against Florida in which the Bulldogs were flagged for excessive celebration after their first touchdown.

"I said the seniors had something planned," Gamble said, "and there was a guy that walked by, and I guess he thought I was talking about this game. I was talking about last year's game."

This time around, Georgia isn't hiding secret plans up its sleeves, and fans can't stop holding their breath for a big payout after the Bulldogs first score against Florida in 2008.

"I don't think we'll have anything like that this year," Gamble said. "It was just a booster to help us try to win that game. This year we're just going to go out and play ball."
