Phil Steele is laying out his top 40 teams at his site as sort of a preview to the release of the 2009 Magazine (on June 9th!). He’s up to #32 and he’s already listed two teams on Georgia’s schedule for the season.
If you click on the link to the team when it’s active, you are rewarded with a PDF of that team’s summary as it will appear in the magazine.
I didn’t see much of interest in his UT preview, other than that he’s got the Vols on his “Most Improved” list and has them bowl eligible (because the “offense can only improve”). Well, and that Steele notes that Tennessee has averaged 41 rushing ypg in its last three games against Florida. Ouch.
Steele also has Arkansas on his “Most Improved” list. And he’s got some noteworthy trends listed regarding the Georgia game:
Arkansas is 3-8 all-time vs. UGA and has lost 8 of the last 9. The Hogs are just 2-6 in SEC home openers and just 3-10 following a scheduled bye since 2002.
