Be careful what you wish for…

From CBS Sportsline:

… Tennessee came from 15 points down in the fourth quarter to beat Vanderbilt and remain in control of its own destiny in the SEC’s Eastern Division. That’s good for LSU, if you didn’t know, because as long as the Vols are on their way to the SEC Championship Game, that means Georgia is not. And it’s probably better for the Tigers to stay away from the red-hot Bulldogs, or at least that’s what I gathered from the reaction of LSU athletic director Skip Bertman, who was noticeably excited here in the press box when he heard the Vols had stormed back and won.

You might want to dial back on the excitement, Skip.  Your team just gave up 466 yards to the 90th ranked team in the country in total offense (Ole Miss moved up seven slots in the eleventh week of the season  – which is statistically significant – thanks to LSU).

Tennessee is ranked 59th right now in total offense.  The Vols are number 67 in total defense, which doesn’t sound too impressive – except Ole Miss is ranked #96.

None of which is to say that Georgia isn’t playing some impressive football right now.  It’s just that LSU may not be.
