Georgia vs. South Carolina: 'Vermonster' at stake against Gamecocks

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Georgia Bulldogs offensive line could earn a 'Vermonster' if they play well enough against the South Carolina offensive line. What does this 'Vermonster' entail?

The Georgia Bulldogs offensive line could earn what is called a 'Vermonster' if they protect quarterback Aaron Murray against a tough South Carolina Gamecocks defensive line. The 'Vermonster' is a specialty at Ben and Jerry's in Athens:

That's 20 scoops of ice cream, four bananas, three cookies, a brownie, whipped cream, choice of hot fudge or caramel and topped off with sprinkles, Oreos, M&Ms, walnuts or peanuts. The price tag in Athens is $48.

An ice cream dish like that would be a good reward if they can prevent Gamecocks defensive ends Jadeveon Clowney and Devin Taylor from reaching Murray on Saturday. The Gamecocks are currently second in the nation in sacks with 22, 18 of them have come courtesy of the defensive line and 5.5 have come from Clowney, the team leader.

Head coach Mark Richt said to Marc Weiszer of Dog Bytes Online that "[t]his game will definitely be the best gauge [of the offensive line]. South Carolina's defense is playing great. They are not playing good, they are playing great."

The Georgia offensive line, after losing players like center Ben Jones and tackles Cordy Glenn and Justin Anderson, have allowed only seven sacks this season, two in the last three games. Tackles Kenarious Gates and John Theus should be the ones to watch on the line.
