I have good news and bad news.
The good news is that the Georgia Bulldogs are going to win the 2011 SEC championship. (Yes, in football.)
The bad news is that the ‘Dawgs are going to suffer an embarrassing loss in a BCS bowl game afterward.
If you disagree, consider this:
In 2005, the Boise St. Broncos opened their season against Georgia. The Red and Black went on to win the SEC and suffer an embarrassing loss to the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Sugar Bowl.
In 2009, the Broncos opened their season against the Oregon Ducks. Oregon went on to win the Pac-10 and suffer an embarrassing loss to the Ohio St. Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl.
In 2010, Boise State opened its season against the Virginia Tech Hokies. VPI went on to win the ACC and suffer an embarrassing loss to the Stanford Cardinal in the Orange Bowl.
It doesn’t matter whether the Broncos win or lose their opener, where that opener is played, or with which conference the opponent is affiliated; if Boise State opens the season against a team from an AQ conference, that team is going to win its league championship and lose in embarrassing fashion in a BCS bowl game.
In 2011, the Broncos will open their season against the Bulldogs in the Georgia Dome. History says the Red and Black will be back in that building in December.
