Meh. USC has the a fifth-year QB; the best RB, WR, and D-line in the SEC; and Steve Spurrier coaching. They're a really, really good football team, and there's no shame in a young Georgia team losing by a field goal on a bunch of bad breaks. Georgia did just about everything it needed to do this weekend, and it lost on a handful of flukey plays. I'm not going to make excuses if Georgia can't put it together going forward, but the people calling for Richt's head over that game are generally sidewalk alumni and idiots. Looking at the way Georgia played on Saturday, I don't see anyone they play for the rest of the season that they absolutely can't beat. I'm not saying they'll win the next 10, but this is still a team that could win nine or 10 games including the bowl.

I'm an FSU fan for sure and I am legitimately nervous and optimistic about this weekend's game. I kind of just don't believe FSU is the 5th best team in the country.

Ed, I think it would probably be easier for all of us if you'd just go ahead and list the teams of which you are not a fan.

Nice to see Cam Newton's not feeling a sophomore slump in his second pro season.

I only like FSU, GSU, am neutral on most. Like UNC for hoops because I wanted to go there. I played rugby for GT so i like that team. But that's the extent. My strongest allegiance is to whichever team allows me to be loud and shout. I've been known to say I'm a drunk obnoxious Georgia fan satisfied.gifshog[1].gif

There you go again with all that un-dawg-like reasonableness, eh? laugh.gif It must pain you to be associated with so many idiots.

Has there ever been a coach that has tortured the dawgs more than "the ole ball coach"? Well, other than Urban Meyer ...

I think your QB is very good, especially the way he rallied after he threw that pick-six. The tight-end is ridiculously good, but USCeast did a great job of taking him completely out of the game. The defense is stout, especially up the middle (Boise couldn't run on them at all). There is no shortage of talent, that is for sure. A comment about the BEF in WWI comes to mind -- "lions led by donkeys". I mean, why schedule a young team with such a brutal opening pair of games?

I imagine you'll run off a string of 4 wins in a row now and the fanbase will be back to their mindless woofing soon enough, but the damage has been done as far as SEC East dominance and national relevance are concerned -- unless Garcia gets drunker than usual I don't see Spurrier and Co. dropping two games to SEC opponents the rest of the way while you guys run the table.

Now, if GT can get by Kansas this year (unlike last year's debacle baldy[1].gif) the rest of the schedule might not be a total disaster, what with the turmoil in UNC and Miami ...

those jumpballs aren't going to work all year, fellas. on top of that, the D still has given up almost 800 yards of offense in, technically, less than 2 full games.

I was totally making fun of Case McCoy's weird grin the other day when somebody told me that he had some sort of awful skin condition as a kid that messed up half of his face. Way to make me feel like an asshole.
