Yeah, I know. But IF....and that is a very big IF....we run the table all the way thru the SEC Championship....It will be Hello 1980!!!!
4th and goal, and you're a foot away from the TD and I see Shaw lining up in the shotgun. HOOP HOOP YEAH I LIKE IT!!! The "Old Ball Coach" blew that call, and I'm glad that he did. Spurrior was out-coached by Richt yesterday for sure, even if the the onside kicked would have failed. Mark Richt out-coached him.
In the hunt, of course the Dogs are in the hunt. You aint gotta be in the top two this year, just the top four.
"I believe the talk of whether Georgia’s quarterback Aaron Murray not being able to win big games against rank teams (Top Ten Opponents) will now silence the critics."
Uh - not exactly. One game where the Dawgs pull one out does not "silence the critics." He'll need to show up consistently all season, but especially against LSU and those pesky Florida Gators - who I believe will get their act together before they meet in Jacksonville on November 2. It's also a good thing that they will meet LSU in Athens - and not in Louisiana.
But regardless, they came up big when they had to this past weekend.
In 2005, #13 Georgia beat #3 LSU for the SEC Title 34-14. DJ Shickley was the Quarterback for Georgia.
There is a great chance that the Dawgs could become #2 in the country. Don't believe me? Look at where Ohio State was at the beginning if the season, and look at where they are now. Georgia has the tougher strength of schedule. If (And I Say If) Georgia Runs The Table, in tbe regular season, I can clearly see them becoming the #2 team in the Country. I say this because the top five teams will lose at least one game. Again if Georgia runs the table in these regilar season games winnng the remaining games, their strength of schedule will catapult them up there to the # 2 position before they reach the SEC Championship game.
That is the reason why I picked Georgia to win the SEC East, The SEC Championship, and play for the National Title. Georgia has a tough schedule. At the beginning of the season, Georgia face 4 top ranked teams. At the time, it was Clemson, South Carolina, LSU, and Florida. Geirgia have the home field advantage playing LSU and South Carolina. Georgia will win against the other non ranked teams going with the idds. Georgia controls it's destiny. My prediction is that Georgia runs the table again znd will meet Alabama for the National Championship again.
Sporty: But the Dawgs must WIN. Their defense has to play a lot better than the first two games. In those games, I was wondering whether I was watching SEC football on D. I realize it is early in the season and things have to settle in, but the Dawgs better figure out how to stop somebody, 'cause LSU - IMHO - has solved their long-standing quarterback problem (for awhile). The kid they have in there is an outstanding leader with an excellent arm, and he can take a hit. If the Dawgs can't shut him down, they could be in trouble.
Sebe, I said all of that, especially in my previous post. I am saying this by looking at the schedule, before opening game against Clemson. They have one of the toughest schedule in the country if, not the toughest schedule in the country. With a great offense returning along with Senior Quarterback Aaron Murray, I saw that they could beat Clemson and all of the games on the schedule. Those top ranked teams South Carolina, LSU, will travel to Georgia to play. I see Georgia beating Florida in Jacksonville, and all of the other non ranked teams. Yes I saw Georgia as being undefeated in the regular season, and a very strong chance in playing for the National Title. With the lost to Clemson, I still believe Georgia controls it's destiny. I also believe that if they runs the tables, (In Which I Believe Will Occur)they will win the SEC East again for the third year in a row, and play Alabama for the SEC Title in Atlanta. I also believe that Georgia will beat Alabama this year if they meet for the SEC Title. So now,I will say Georgia will play for the National Title, provided that defense get better. Yes I know if's but that is what I foresee.
And even when we agree, sometimes I'm not sure we've done so. I guess that's what they call "a marriage made in Heaven."
Hey - speaking of Heaven - I thought of you earlier today while in the checkout line at Kroger. There among all of the scandal sheets and "enquiring" magazines was a paperback book titled: "How the SEC Became Goliath: The Making of College Football's Most Dominant Conference" by Ray Glier. I looked across to the next checkout aisles and there were copies near every register. I hadn't seen that book before, and I went to Amazon where they are selling it in hardcover. You probably knew about this book, but if not it is here:
Remember in the South, Football is not everything, but the only thing when it comes to real sports. It separates the men from the boys. I will buy this book.
I think the paperback was cheaper at Kroger (about $1) than at Amazon. They had plenty of copies - about a half-dozen at least at each check-out counter. I usually get books I think I'll hang onto in hardcover, due their durability and the "feel" of the book. The quality of the paper in the Kroger paperbacks didn't seem all that great (high percentage of rag?). I didn't see any hard copies there.
