Your Georgia Bulldogs remain #4 in the latest CFP Rankings. To be frank, Georgia’s ranking as of today does not matter. Where they fall come Sunday does, and if the Dawgs want to be heading to the playoffs they must beat LSU on Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. The season is on the line, but from what I have seen on TV and heard on the radio, Georgia shouldn’t even show up for the SEC Championship Game.

LSU’s Offense, the mightiest and most precise unit in the history of football, is just too good for Georgia to have a shot. Surely the Dawgs will cower and fold in the presence of Joe Burrow’s golden arm and Joe Brady’s holy playbook.

According to Mark Bradley, there might be a recipe for the Dawgs to beat the Tigers.

Without Lawrence Cager for the entire game, and missing George Pickens for the first half, the Dawgs will have to find a way to scheme up some points. One could fairly assume that for Georgia to hang tough they will need D’Andre Swift. Unfortunately, the prognosis on his shoulder doesn’t sound quite as good as it did when Kirby Smart took the podium after the Georgia Tech game last Saturday.

On the bright side, Jake Fromm thinks the Georgia Offense has another gear it has yet to show. Saturday would be a hell of a time for a breakthrough.

In recruiting news, 3-Star Louisiana WR Corey Wren has backed away from his commitment to the Dawgs. Judging by Georgia’s other current targets at receiver, and Wren stating that he will no longer be considering the Bulldogs, this might be a situation where Georgia has backed away from Wren in favor of higher rated prospects. Wren’s decommitment can also be something to point to and insist that the Georgia program is falling apart and the lethargic UGA attack is costing Kirby and Co recruits. Dealer’s choice I suppose.

One thing that isn’t in question is the quality of the Georgia Defense. Here’s SEC Network’s Marcus Spears with a breakdown of how the Junkyard Dawgs make it difficult on opposing QB’s.

We will find out how the Dawgs matchup with the Tigers come Saturday, but for now I have a strangely good feeling about UGA in the underdog role.

As always, GO DAWGS!
