Now consider this, which contains one of my all-time favorite lines from the blogosphere:
It's also very interesting (and rote) to note that Stanford had the most difficult schedule in the country. Well, of course, Stanford had the most difficult schedule in the country.

Something like the opposite of this effect is evident in Trev’s list. Yes, Georgia has a tough slate in front of it, but the ‘Dawgs catch one break this season:

The Classic City Canines play a lot of tough teams this year. Don’t forget, though, that a lot of teams out there---including all four of the other squads on Trev’s list---face a pretty daunting opponent in the Red and Black.
So, before you get too heartbroken about the difficult row Georgia has to hoe, bear in mind the challenge facing Alabama on September 27, Florida on November 1, Auburn on November 15, and Ohio State on January 8.
