Enough with this already:
… Alabama announced its presence with authority with a 34-10 season-opening victory over then-No. 9 Clemson and continued to impress in a 49-14 rout over Arkansas last week. [Emphasis added.]
Can someone explain to me exactly what is impressive about hammering Arky this year? The NCAA tracks seventeen statistical categories. The Razorbacks are in the bottom three in the SEC in ten of those categories, including last in rushing defense, scoring defense, turnover margin and sacks allowed. They’ve barely beaten 1-AA Western Illinois and Sun Belt mediocrity Louisiana-Monroe.
In short, they suck. This isn’t said to knock ‘Bama, which is clearly the best team that Georgia has faced this year, but I don’t get what the big deal is about beating what may wind up being the worst team in the SEC this season.
