"The big thing for me is our secondary," Swinney said. "If I'm sitting in the stands, that's what I'm watching. There are a lot of question marks coming out of last season. "To be fair to those guys, we were very thin going into last season, and then we just get decimated by injuries. But compared to where we were at this time last year, we have nine new pieces - eight signees and Martin Jenkins, who was out all year. So we have nine new guys to work with, out of 15 on scholarship."

This Is Why I Need Not to Visit Rival Sites When I Have Insomnia

Auburn fans want to beat Mark Richt because he is the head coach at Georgia, and for some unknown reason, Georgia fans think Auburn is their biggest rival and vice versa, despite no provocation.

Meanwhile, Nick Fairley just turned a hose on the visitors' section of Jordan-Hare Stadium to commemorate 120 years of a nearly annual rivalry. Go 'Dawgs!

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.

Some much-appreciated respect for Georgia from Roll 'Bama Roll. I'm pretty sure Herschel never played against Alabama, but that's a minor point. The hat tip from our fellow Auburn-hating brethren is appreciated. Go 'Dawgs!

Clemson and Georgia have started talks that could result in the cancellation of the football series planned between the two schools for 2013 and 2014. UGA athletics director Greg McGarity confirmed the talks Tuesday, though there has been "no resolution or final determination yet," according to UGA. Talks were initiated by Clemson as a result of the ACC’s move earlier this year to expand to a nine-game conference schedule to accommodate 14 members in the league.

I promised my son a few years back that I would take him to his first road game at Clemson in 2013, when he will be ten. If I have to tell him we can't go, I'm going to be royally pissed off. Don't fail us, Greg McGarity. This sucks. Go 'Dawgs!

At least at this point in time, a nine-game football schedule has little support among the membership for myriad reasons, with the ADs at Georgia and Tennessee being the lone known exceptions.

In Nashville today, seven hours of meetings produced no decision by the SEC athletic directors on an eight- or nine-game league schedule for 2013, but Greg McGarity appears open to the idea, in order to preserve the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry. Go 'Dawgs!

Barrett Trotter has decided to forgo his senior season at Auburn, keep his bachelor's degree and continue pursuit on his Master's. "My four years at Auburn has been a great experience and I'm thankful for the opportunities that I've had, however, I have decided to forgo my senior season," Trotter said in a statement. "I'm truly blessed to have been a part of winning seasons and championships during my time at Auburn."

Auburn quarterback Barrett Trotter is retiring from football. He has a baccalaureate degree from Auburn. He is pursuing a master's degree at Auburn. He thinks his "four years at Auburn has been a great experience." Alabama Polytechnic Institute subject-verb agreement FTL! Go 'Dawgs!

The 2012 SEC schedule is not complete but should be announced soon, athletics director Eric Hyman said. Calling 2012 "a transition year," Hyman predicted the juggling prompted by the addition of Texas A&M and Missouri to the league will upset some fans.

The 2012 SEC schedule still has not been released, but it's coming soon, and South Carolina's athletic director says some fans will be "upset" by the changes. Does this mean the rumor that Georgia will open against Missouri and play the Gamecocks in October is true? I have no idea, but stay tuned. Go 'Dawgs!

McGarity said Thursday that a new model would be used for 2013 and beyond. It’s not known what that model will be, but it will not be a nine-game schedule, Bloom said. The SEC has repeatedly asserted it is not adding another conference game since expanding to include Missouri and Texas A&M.

The 2012 SEC schedule is due to be released early next week, and it appears pretty certain that the league will stick with an eight-game schedule at least for the next few seasons. For the short term, we appear to have dodged a bullet. For the long term, does this mean we're liable to be looking at an additional expansion, to 16 teams, within the next few years? Stay tuned. . . . Go 'Dawgs!

Georgia: This is the SEC East "champion"? 2007 Tennessee wants their asterisked crown back. And do UGA fans really not understand why they have earned almost zero respect with nine straight wins? Don't be surprised if Georgia Tech knocks off the Dawgs this weekend if Isiah Crowell is gimpy with the ankle injury. Anything is possible, I suppose, but an UGA win in Atlanta would have to qualify as the biggest upset in SEC Championship Game history. More inexplicable Georgia hatred from outsidethesidelines, who needs someone to explain the proper use of scare quotes, among many, many other things. Go 'Dawgs!
