College Football Bowl Open Comment Thread, with a Poll Question!

Today marks the start of bowl season, so I thought I’d open up a general postseason comment thread, and raise a couple of questions in the process. (There will be a separate thread this evening for tonight’s basketball game.)

As you know, last year’s Georgia Bulldogs went 6-7 and failed to beat so much as a single Division I-A team with a winning record. This autumn, the Red and Black went 10-3, with a bowl game to go, and much has been made of the supposed weakness of the Classic City Canines’ slate.

The ‘Dawgs lost to the Las Vegas Bowl-bound Boise St. Broncos (11-1), the Capital One Bowl-bound South Carolina Gamecocks (10-2), and the BCS Championship Game-bound LSU Tigers (13-0), and the Athenians’ victims included the Music City Bowl-bound Mississippi St. Bulldogs (6-6), the Liberty Bowl-bound Vanderbilt Commodores (6-6), the Gator Bowl-bound Florida Gators (6-6), the Chick-fil-A Bowl-bound Auburn Tigers (7-5), and the Sun Bowl-bound Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (8-4). Wins by some or all of those clubs---particularly the 6-6 ones, for whom a bowl victory represents the difference between a winning and a losing season---would validate the toughness of the Bulldogs’ schedule, but, on the other hand, a loss by a rival is, well, a loss by a rival.

Which way will you be rooting this postseason? Let us know in the poll and the comments below.

Go ‘Dawgs!
