Was Georgia that good, in their 45-7 thrashing of Auburn, or did the Tigers forget to War Eagle, instead rolling over offering up one of the most lopsided losses in this series?
Georgia finished with its biggest win in the series since a 41-0 triumph in 1946.
Probably a little of both, but in this crazy world of starting the season 0-2, just a few weeks back, Auburn was our favorite bitch …
Fortunately for Georgia, the Tigers did win one game away from Jordan-Hare Stadium — a 16-13 upset of South Carolina back on Oct. 1. That could turn out to be the difference in the SEC East.
The Bulldogs fell behind in the division with their 45-42 loss to the Gamecocks in the second week of the season. Georgia hasn’t been beaten since, while South Carolina dropped another conference game at Arkansas last week to clear the way for Georgia to take the East.
One more win will do it. [Source: Same as previous link]
What does it all mean? Bandwagon jumpers can hop back on in time for the Dawgs to squash the wild kitties from Kentucky, and capture the SEC crown. Who would have thought it after the rough 0-2 start? Certainly not me. I thought the 3-4 was not going to work; the team lacked heart, made too many mental mistakes, and was ready for a change. One poor showing over the next three weeks (assumption – wins over Kentucky, at the Bumbles Bees in ATL, and of course the SEC Championship) and we will all call for Richt’s head, because let’s face it, that is what armchair QB’ing is all about.
On a more serious note, I’m glad all the Boise St. talk is over. Yes they spanked Georgia, in the Dome no less, but that was Labor Day weekend, and the Dawgs were clearly not in form. There is no way any serious pundit could claim that the Blue Horsie boys would carry a win out of the Dome if the two teams were to play in the next three weeks.
