It has only been 12 days since we last played and it seems like forever. No wonder the off-season is so insufferably long. Last week’s slate of games were really poor; this week things are a bit more interesting. Conference play is finally full-on.
Las Vegas thinks that Georgia will blow out Tennessee on Saturday night, with the line currently standing at -25. According to this article Vegas is recommending you take the Dawgs and the points. That’s crazy talk...or is it?

On that note, Seth Emerson over at The Athletic ($$) notes that Georgia is blowing out more teams and if there is a reason behind it. All this talk of blowouts and point-spreads is bringing out my inner-Munson big time...
Yesterday evening, the fine folks over at 247Sports had a Q & A session with Tennessee’s 247 point-man Wes Rucker. It’s good stuff if you’ve got the time (it runs over an hour).
“I’m not happy at all. I grew up with those guys, and played four years there with them, and it doesn’t make me happy to see them lose and see their heart break like that”. - Current Georgia TE Eli Wolf on the current state of Tennessee football.
Here’s a fairly level-headed Q & A between a Vol-centric site and yet another contributor to the Dawgosphere. Simply put, Georgia has depth for days; Tennessee does not.
A fan has offered to walk-on and play middle linebacker for the Vols. His 40-yard-dash time might hold him back, but otherwise this is fine.
All this talk of blowouts, walk-on’s, lack of depth and QB issues is making me a bit nervous. I’ll never not Munson. Ever. Will Georgia be focused? At the moment, with the Jeremy Banks situation causing yet another mid-week distraction for Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee’s distraction level has to be pegging in the red. Still...it’s a Conference game against a hated divisional foe at night in Kneeland Stadium. Are you Munsoning? Even just a little?
What Will Happen Saturday Night?

Georgia covers the 25 points in a rout.
Dawgs win comfortably, but does not cover.
Georgia shows up not focused and struggles, but wins anyway.
Tennessee shocks the world and gives back the water they owe the citizens of Georgia.
The Vols stun the Dawgs. Pruitt gets a 7-year extension.
That’s all I’ve got. Have a great morning, y’all.
