I’m not the one saying this, Bruce Feldman is.
Georgia: Lots to be optimistic about here: The Dawgs have the most favorable schedule in the SEC since they avoid LSU and Alabama. Aaron Murray is off to a strong start. Their two young tailbacks have looked outstanding and the D has been superb, and that bunch should only get nastier now that they’ve gotten some key players back from their suspensions. The biggest hurdles: They host a capable Tennessee team later this month before visiting No. 7 South Carolina . Toward the end of October, they play rival Florida. The regular-season finale is home against Georgia Tech . The more you think about it, this all sounds quite doable for a program with the personnel Georgia has … if its O-line can hold up.
That’s from his post about the ten teams with the greatest likelihood of running the table in the regular season.
No question Georgia’s already had a few things click in its favor. The early schedule set up well to allow Grantham to manage his defensive shortfall from the suspensions. The running game has progressed faster than we hoped. Aaron Murray looks like he’s rounding into form (there’s no question he’s improved his mechanics). Special teams don’t look like a gaping hole.
I don’t know about 12-0 just yet, but Feldman’s right about how much of this season may be riding on the improvement on the offensive line.
