I think it's more than fair to assume something was up with Alabama that game.
And in that game, Alabama, with the best rush defense in the nation, was getting gashed pretty good. I think it's more than fair to assume something was up with Alabama that game.
Is there some reason, aside from the common misconception that I'm Bulldog fan and the general distaste that most around here seem to have agreeing with me on anything, that everyone here is so unwilling to acknowledge that UGA was one of the best programs in football last year?
BAMA giving up points to UGA's offense
All TV hype and no substance
Yeah. They weren't. That's the reason.
Your logic is impenatrable.
They did put a licking on some teams like a top 5 team should, they beat the Nunes-led Cardinal and looked pretty convincing in Norman. There was substance there. Maybe not enough to play for a MNC, but its not less than what 15+ other teams did this year.
Plus they got Stanford with their second best QB, and USC without Barkley (thanks to Anthony Barr).
They went 12-1 against what Sagarin has as the 21st best schedule. Sagarin also has them as #5 in the country based on MoV.
They gave up 23 points to Buffalo and 20 to Florida Atlantic.
a USC squad that was dogwalked by Georgia friggin' Tech
Here you can get a quote from me about a team not showing up. USC might have lost to Georgia Southern they way they played that day.
What about their other five losses?
That's a strange argument to make in both cases, and your post is at least as deceptive, if not moreso, than mine. The score at half time in the Georgia-Buffalo game was 24-16. The score at half time in the FAU game was 28-14. The actual final scores are besides the point, those were not impressive performances, regardless of whether the final scores for the bottom of the barrel Sun Belt and MAC teams came after the game was well in hand.
9 Florida 11-2 933
10 Florida State 12-2 922
11 Clemson 11-2 889
12 Kansas State 11-2 871
13 Louisville 11-2 781
Which of the Sam's is the Louisville fan?
UGA had a problem early in games against lesser opponents because they did not come in trying terribly hard. By the second half of the second quarter of those games the coaches were yelling, the lather was worked up, and they coasted to easy wins.
There is little doubt that UGA should have been invited to the Sugar Bowl ahead of UF though.
Or, to put it another way, does UGa get to the SEC Championship game if they have to play the same SEC West slate UF did? I doubt it.
Seriously, how many teams can you realistically follow/hate have rivalries with? KSU was in conference for 15 years with A&M and there was one important/interesting game between the two teams in football and none in basketball.

What I don't understand is people who hate Notre Dame as if they were some sort of perennial overdog.
Te’o’s father, Brian, was quoted in the article saying that, every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, when his son happened to be home, “so he would meet with her there.” He said they started as friends but had become a couple within the past year.
It also seems relevant that Te'o is apparently a devout Mormon. Mormons I have known tend to be both more generous and more trusting than the population at large. Throw in a lack of experience with romantic relationships, and he does shape up as "the perfect mark," as Notre Dame's AD called him.
Forde also sharply criticized Deadspin for its conclusion that Te'o was likely involved, which seemed more than a little petulant considering all the incredible work Deadspin did to break the story in the first place.
Deadspin went with a quote from "a friend of" the alleged perpetrator saying he was 80% sure T'eo was in on it.
One 'I believe Te'o' angle could be this: he had (thought) an online relationship with this 'woman', and was frankly embarrassed to admit he had an online girlfriend he never met, and sort of filled in some of the details with his own 'white lies,' to create the foundation of his 'girlfriend'.
the NCAA is now under investigation by the NCAA for violations by the NCAA enforcement staff regarding illegally obtained information related to the NCAA's investigation of NCAA violations by the university of miami.
hopefully that sentence is convoluted enough to convey the ridiculousness of the situation
SWATS, the company that outed Ray Lewis now says that Alabama football players used the deer antler spray as well.
and LSU players. I also think some college players wore some of those Powerbands before a game as well.
When asked for a comment on their players' interactions with Key and Ross, Alabama officials said, "We've sent them two cease and desist letters, and we are constantly educating our guys on performance-enhancing substances."
So college football players don't have to take critical thinking classes,
The conference may well be overrated, but even the middling schools still can market themselves to blue chip kids.
Have no idea how they pulled Laremy Tunsil from Florida, however. It's hard not to be suspicious of that program.
USC went from an amazing class to an absolute tire fire. Not all the dust has settled yet but they may be looking at a ten player class.
There have been rumors floating around about Ole Miss since before this season - and they're clearly not of the sour grapes variety, because Ole Miss sucks. I presume its just gotten to the point that the cost/benefit analysis of paying makes it worth it.
Wasn't Ole Miss the school that agreed to pay Cecil Newton $180 large if Cam went there?
What was shocking about Alabama's getting stung by the NCAA a few years back wasn't that they were cheating, but that someone tattled on them
Florida won the battle but Eckerd is going to neg recruit the #### out of UF's prospects next year.
So we get the east slate PLUS Nebraska and Wisconsin form the west. Wow. Welcome to the Big Ten!!
That is a brutal schedule but alas only Michigan and O$U are recruiting at a top 10 level nationally (top 5 really for those two) so in a few years the MSU's and Whiskys and PSU (sanctions gonna hurt the numbers game) won't be so bad.
