So this is happening.
And honestly, all I really ask from this Saturday is for the Bulldogs not to do this.
I just want to see a Georgia Bulldog football team coming off its biggest win of the season, an emotionally important win for the rebuilding process of this football team, do what it’s supposed to do. Take control over an inferior opponent and not let it go until the outcome is no longer in doubt.
I don't need to see anything fancy. And I don't expect an utter blowout. UL-L put up 482 yards of total offense in their last outing, a win over Georgia Southern. Tailback Elijah McGuire is within striking distance of a 1000 yard season. The Ragin’ Cajuns may play as many as four quarterbacks, but LSU transfer Anthony Jennings is the de facto starter and he’s no slouch.
I don't want this game to be some sort of triumphant moment. Just a nice, boring 38-14 win over a Sun Belt foe. Is that too much to ask? Perhaps.
But if the Georgia offense keeps it simple, doesn't turn the ball over, and scores when they find themselves in the red zone, I like our odds. If the UGA defense doesn't suffer a hangover from its stellar effort last week, things look even better. If the Red and Black special teams can continue to play competent to above average football, this one’s in the bag.
But if these things don't happen, if things are closer than they should be or, heaven forbid, if Georgia should lose this one you're going to want a drink. My recommendation?
The Black Out.*
Mix 1 oz of vodka, 1⁄2 ounce of Kahlua, and 1⁄4 ounce each of black sambuca and blue curaçao in a shot glass. Sip or shoot as your conscience dictates. Until later....
*Obviously we here at Dawg Sports do not condone drinking to excess, much less drinking until one actually blacks out. Do we need to actually say this? I hope not.
