Once again, the Bulldogs benefit from not playing the three best teams in the SEC (Alabama, LSU and Arkansas). If they win at South Carolina on Oct. 6, I expect them to repeat as SEC East champions, and the fans will have to wait another year before trying to shove Mark Richt out of Athens.
Dawgs pick up a impact JUCO offensive lineman in 6-foot-8, 350 lbs Trenton Brown. Bobo and Friend have been recruiting him since 9th grade.
While only existing at the Division I level for two seasons and compiling an uninspiring 2-25 record in that time, the Bears' lacrosse program has a deadly bullet in the chamber -- its facility -- and the allure of a geographic location that doesn't involve snow squalls and road salt; this may draw some talent from the northeast and also serve as a flash point for some of the emerging talent in the south.
Sources said Georgia's schedule got harder.
I have come to the opinion that we give Georgia entirely too much crap. We’ve played Georgia more than we’ve played Ole Miss, Kentucky, or Florida, not to mention our brothers from 1992 and 2012. We have a lower winning percentage and lower average point differential against Georgia (58.46%, 4.4 delta) than any SEC team not named Missouri (33.33%, -6.67 delta), the Auburnite, or Tennessee, and Herschel was only there for 3 of those 65 games. You’ll notice that a single point separates the deltas of Tennessee, the Auburnite and Georgia, and then there is a jump of 2.46 to LSU, then another 1.82 to Arkansas, and so on. Georgia has been pretty competitive with us for a long time.
Georgia will spend over $100,000 more on this year’s four-man strength staff than it did on last season’s five full-time staffers and a part-time assistant.
