Sheared granular liquids are studied by the mode coupling theory. It is shown
that, in contrast to thermostatted systems, current correlations play an
essential role in the dynamics. The theory predicts that the plateau of the
density time-correlator disappears for most situations, while it appears in the
elastic limit. The result is compatible with molecular dynamics simulations.
