But Gary Stokan, president of the Chick-fil-A bowl, said Tuesday night that his bowl has no "clear-cut favorite" from the SEC and hasn't extended an invitation to a team. He said Georgia is still in the mix. "In the bowl business, you hear a lot of things this time of year," Stokan said. "Until official invitations are given and official invitations are accepted, there's nothing in concrete." Stokan said among reasons Tennessee would be attractive is that it played Alabama and Florida close, won three of its last four and has an excited fan base with a new coach in Lane Kiffin. He said Georgia's pluses include playing a rugged schedule including a win over No. 7 Georgia Tech.

Keep hope alive?

Georgia Bulldogs Likely Independence Bowl-Bound; Outback Bowl Remains the Class Clown of SEC Postseason Tie-Ins

The Outback Bowl's latest outrageous snub started a chain of toppling dominoes that likely will land the Georgia Bulldogs in the Independence Bowl. Dawg Sports, while disappointed, sees the silver lining for the men in silver britches.

If things go according to plan and Ole Miss head to the Cotton and Georgia Tech wins the ACC championship game, I'd say it's almost a lock that Georgia will go to the Chick-fil-A Bowl. The matchup against Clemson (as the ACC's No. 2) would be a very attractive one and would sell quickly. (Note: I've seen a handful of projections with Virginia Tech going to the CFA, but I just don't see that happening. Tech has already traveled to Atlanta twice this year -- vs. Alabama and vs. Georgia Tech. I can't see a lot of Hokie fans wanting to make a third trip.)

David Hale tells me exactly what I want to hear. (Boy, didn't I tell you not to do that? Yes, sir, you did. Well, O.K., then!)

Georgia is currently 1.5 games ahead of the Vols in the SEC standings with two games to play, so unless Georgia blows it this week against Kentucky, the Dawgs will lock up the second spot in the East. But if Tennessee is within a game of Georgia -- which means they'd have to beat both Vandy and Kentucky to close out the year -- then the Outback could take the Vols based on the Kiffin-related hype and UT's head-to-head blowout win over Georgia. That would likely drop the Dawgs to the Chick-fil-A, and a UGA-Clemson matchup would probably draw very, very well.

David Hale addresses the possibility I raised a moment ago

Two Sets of Projections Have Georgia Facing Clemson in Atlanta

Getting to renew the rivalry with the Tigers would take a lot of the sting out of a sub-par season. Interesting side note: Georgia and Clemson have played their 62 rivalry games in four cities and on eight fields. The Bulldogs and the Tigers have met on three fields in Athens (Herty Field, Sanford Field, and Sanford Stadium) and on three fields in Clemson (Bowman Field, Riggs Field, and Memorial Stadium). Their neutral site meetings in the early 20th century were in Anderson and Augusta. I wonder how many rivalries have featured neutral site meetings in three different cities, all of which began with the same letter? Maybe it's just me, but I think that'd be cool. 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!

Why the SEC Should Scrap the Outback to Get the Gator Back On Board

Should the SEC add the Gator Bowl to its roster of postseason tie-ins? In order to do so, Dawg Sports argues, the league should ditch the Capital One Bowl or the Outback Bowl.

Kyle Gets Contrary: Despite the Name of the Building, the Georgia Bulldogs Do Not Belong in the Georgia Dome

There is talk that the Georgia Bulldogs may meet the UCLA Bruins in the Georgia Dome in 2010. Dawg Sports explains why this is a bad idea.
