Bulldog Nation Wants U.S.C. in 2011 and 2012

Out-of-conference scheduling is a favorite topic of discussion here at Dawg Sports, so, after the word came down that Georgia was looking to book a heavyweight for a home-and-home in the next few years, the question was put forth for the good of Bulldog Nation; to wit: "Which team do you really want to see Georgia play in 2011 and 2012?"

You already knew what I thought. For your part, the voters spoke loudly and clearly, awarding a clear plurality, which fell just short of a majority, to Southern California. The Trojans garnered 49.1 per cent of the 214 ballots cast. Their next closest competitor was one of the less likely possibilities (Texas or West Virginia), an improbable prospect which received 15.9 per cent of the vote.

I may owe Peter Bean another apology for this one.

Texas A&M turned in a surprising third-place finish (14.5%), trailed by California (7.0%), Pittsburgh (3.7%), N.C. State (3.3%), Boston College (2.8%), Purdue (1.9%), and Texas Tech (0.5%). Ending up just outside the cellar were such other likely possibilities as Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington State, who, when all lumped together, collected 1.4 per cent of the vote.

That's enough about the distant future, though; the 2007 football season is almost here and the new question is pretty straightforward: "What's your prediction for the Oklahoma State game?" Your votes go here and your comments go below.

Go 'Dawgs!
