Missouri Tigers Are a Real SEC Team Now


Not only are they beating the slop out of an ACC team, but their mascot broke a bowl championship trophy, Orson Charles-style. Welcome! Go 'Dawgs!

Will Georgia Open the 2011 Season Against Boise State in the Dome?


I have mixed feelings about this possibility. On the one hand, Mark Richt-coached teams typically have performed better when opening the season against quality opposition. On the other hand, when the Bulldogs have beaten out-of-conference opponents in non-rivalry games between the hedges, rematches outside of Athens haven't always ended well (Oklahoma State in Stillwater in 2009, Colorado in Boulder in 2010). On the one hand, I'd love to get out of the now-pointless series with Louisville. On the other hand, I'm not anxious to hose Ole Miss by yanking the Rebels' marquee non-conference matchup out from under them. On the one hand, the Broncos have never beaten an SEC team. On the other hand, Boise State is a program on the rise, and Georgia will head into 2011 after the worst two seasons of the Mark Richt era. Right now, we don't even know if the Bulldogs will make a bowl game this season, and, if they don't, that's a few weeks' worth of extra practices of which they will be deprived, while the Broncos likely will be coming off of back-to-back BCS bowl campaigns. At the end of the day, I would prefer it if this move didn't happen in this way at this time. I don't see the logic of playing a regular-season game in the Georgia Dome against anyone other than a traditional rival from the ACC, I don't see the urgency of rearranging everything so hurriedly rather than arranging a future matchup down the road, and I don't see how this can be squared with Greg McGarity's stated objective of scheduling more home games. In principle, I'm for this matchup; in practice, in this specific instance, I'm against it. Go 'Dawgs!

Alabama tightens grip on No. 1, neither Bulldogs nor ACC to be found. Go 'Dawgs!

I'm Going Postal if the 'Dawgs Are Going Coastal


You will never laugh harder at an exhibition of misplaced hubris than you will laugh at this explanation of how the ACC can poach teams (including ours) from the SEC. I especially loved the part about how the league has "peaked." Yeah, four straight national championships'll do that for you. Go to the bathroom before you read this, or you will wet yourself. (Hat tip: Team Speed Kills.) Go 'Dawgs!

The Best December Bowl Game?


I admit I'm biased, but, on the whole, I'd have to go with the Chick-fil-A (nee Peach), which was a down-to-the-wire affair for better than a decade and frequently features desirable matchups between ACC and SEC squads. The Holiday Bowl has its moments, but, for the most part, it signals the start of meaningful bowl games, not the high point of the pre-January tilts. Go 'Dawgs!

Is Clemson Interested in Bolting the ACC for the SEC?


If the dominoes start to fall, would Clemson be interested in leaving the ACC for the SEC? DrB says maybe so. I, for one, would be happy to have 'em. Go 'Dawgs!

Georgia Bulldogs in Running for Possible Bowl Berth Versus ACC


David Hale links to a few bowl projection postings, which indicate that the Red and Black may be in the running for the Chick-fil-A Bowl (best case scenario) or the Music City Bowl (more likely scenario), either of which would pit the 'Dawgs against an ACC opponent. In other news, Clemson is doing well, which may give the Tigers' fans reason to panic. I have to say, renewing the rivalry with Clemson in a bowl game would sure take some of the sting out of a disappointing season. Go 'Dawgs! Auburna delenda est!

Good news: SEC picks up Gator Bowl tie-in


Bad news: Big Ten gets opposite slot. Great. 'Cause what we needed was another SEC/Big Ten matchup in the Sunshine State. While I'm all for sending a Southeastern Conference team to Jacksonville for the postseason, I'd much rather see us face a Big 12 or Pac-10 (or even ACC or Big East) opponent by the St. John's River. Still, to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, half a loaf is better than no bread; if we cannot secure all our bowl tie-ins, let us secure what we can. Go 'Dawgs!
