Georgia faces one of the top defenses in the country, faces an offense with the #1 receiver and back in the conference, the injury report now leaks onto a second page, you can’t swing a dead cat on campus without hitting a CBS or ESPN satellite truck, and Gary D. is on the mic. What, me worry?
Coming off consecutive shutouts, the #1 defense in the country and it isn’t close, #2 in the country but garnering #1 votes, and doing so with a backup QB and missing All-American talent with injuries. What, me worry? Yes. Because, AUBURN.
A beloved former assistant comes back to town as an underdog, fresh off beating a top 10 SEC team, riding a fervent fanbase’s adoration, restoring a program to its former glory, and providing Georgia its first true test in a month, with Kirk Herbstreit holding court. What, me worry?
A conference opener against a South Carolina team coached by a former Georgia assistant, fresh from a walk-off win, still with that new-coach smell. With no idea which quarterback will play for either team, and Muschamp back on the sidelines. What, me worry?
A home opener against a defending conference champion. A program that rose from the ashes with a penchant for thatched-roof cottages. And a defense with chips on their shoulders, when our offense didn’t even cross the goal line last week. What, me worry?
Georgia opens the season against the #3 team in the country, a team that wears orange, a team that is like another school but with a lake, a team with a front seven as good or better than our own, a team that has won 3 national championships since we last won ours, away from home in yet another state with good but misplaced judgments on barbecue sauce, in the most anticipated game of the week, and all in front of some of the best recruits in the nation. What, me worry?
Kickoff at 11 am. Facing a team riding a hot streak and suddenly ranked in the CFP. A team that has overcome a serious opt-out and COVID gut-check. When UGA seniors just had their send-off in Sanford Stadium postponed. With only a backdoor NY6 spot to play for. What, me worry?
We’re facing yet another former UGA coordinator looking for a signature win and job security, we have no pass defense, against a dual-threat quarterback, a pandemic rages on, all in the bad Columbia. What, me worry?
We’ve lost 2 of the last 3 games, we’re now relegated to the SEC Network, injuries all over the place, an unknown at quarterback, we’re facing a coach due for another breakout, it’s at night, and we might wear black jerseys. What, me worry?
We’re coming off a less that exciting victory over Kentucky, sporting an anemic passing game even in fair weather, facing a team with questionable health protocols and a penchant for brawls but who is scoring points in bunches against our defense which is a walking triage unit. And Gary Danielson is in the booth, which is located in Duval County. What, me worry?
Georgia is on the road, facing the #2 team in the country, the #1 offense in the country, a ranked opponent for the 3rd week in a row, a monkey on our backs the size of Terrence Cody, and the infamous 21-0 Saban record, all with GameDay in town. What, me worry?
A former conference blueblood, suddenly on the upswing, riding the longest winning streak in Power 5 football, with a former UGA coach on the sidelines and a former UGA lineman starting on offense, facing our former offensive coordinator armed with a veteran quarterback, all with Gary Danielson in the booth. What, me worry?
We’re playing football at home. Under the bright LED lights. On national television with Herbstreit somewhere near. We don’t know which quarterback will play. We had more penalty yards than offense in the first half last week. Against our oldest rival, in a shortened season, with zero room for error. What, me worry?
The season is opening 3 weeks late due to a global pandemic. We have wildfires out of control, and a seeming turnstyle for hurricanes. In the 40th anniversary of our most glorious football season ever. A new Offensive Coordinator, no announced starter at the most important position on the field, and we’re about as far west as we can travel from Athens in conference. What, me worry?
