Your post cracked me up. I loved this part: "In early December, the state of the Georgia football program will be … not quite where we want to be but headed in the right direction."

Yet you have them going 11-1 and winning the Sugar Bowl. That sounds pretty damn good to me. Jesus man, what more do you want? You make it sound like they went 8-4 and lost the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

@ Rick

I don't have us winning the SEC. Either 11-1 with the loss to UF, who would then win the east, or losing the SECCG.

We easily have top 15 talent coaching and playing in Athens and only one legitimate top 15 team on the schedule.

Dawgaholic, if we go 11-1 and DON'T win the SEC, it's gotta kinda be dumb luck, no?

In short, if we win 11 games the program is EXACTLY where it needs to be. Which was essentially Rick's point.

@rbubp

Not quite as unlucky as Bama in 08 (12-0 regular season) and Florida 09 (12-0 regular season). I'd take 9-3 regular season with an SEC title over 11-1 and no SEC title. In my opinion, if you are an elite SEC program and you don't win the conference, you are not where you want to be. You may feel very good about where the program is but you are "not quite where you want to be."

Plus, this year's schedule appears relatively easy as Auburn and UT are down and we miss both LSU and Bama. Against last year's schedule, this team probably goes 10-2 or 9-3. Also, our toughest 2 game stretch is SC -Arky and we travel a grand total round trip of 5 hours for those.
