    College football is a “what have you done lately” entity. The answer, in UGA terms, is “not much.”

    Not won SEC since 2005

    Not won NC since 1980

    Not won over FL since 07, before that 04 before that 1997

    Writers are voting for proven teams

    UGA has shown a decline in performance over the last 2 years

    After # 1 ranking preseason 2008, UGA has Lost 8 of the next 26

    69 % Win Percentage is NOT GOOD enough to be a highly ranked team

    QB play will have to be better

    We also Lost 6 of the previous 26 before the last 2 years you so aptly describe, in the 2 years before that.

    We are in decline the last 4 years for the # 11 program all-time in 1-A wins to find 18 teams who we have not done better than.

    We face a tough schedule the season after this 2010 season, the 2011 season and face it losing 15 seniors and 4-5 juniors – nearly all the starters we lose after this season.

    Of course, it doesn’t help that we # 1 Fulmer Cup and 1-3 vs 4 sorry vols teams the last 4 years

    We are # 3 in Fulmer Cup All-Time now which started after the 2005 season, as well.

    We have a LOSING RECORD at Sanford Stadium the last 4 years vs SEC East teams, and there was NOT 1 single highly considered team among any of the games.

    “The program is backsliding,” say his critics.
    “The team is undisciplined.”
    “He needs to win this year or he needs to go.”

    While I think Sagarin is about right with UGA around thirteen, certainly as logical as any other poll in shooting in the dark, but this is what I don’t understand about computer polls.

    If they are intended to be objective and free from human biases, why wouldn’t all teams start at a baseline of, say, 100 as a power rating? Then let the interaction of the season between teams and common opponents once, twice, thrice times removed determine whether they go up, or down, as the season progresses. That would give them great credibility as performance would be totally pristine and free of human contamination. As it is Sagarin, and other Computer Power Polls, all start with a set of assumptions that distort the objectivity. Certainly they get better as the season goes along and the interactions increase, but so do the human polls. There is always a head-scratcher in Sagarin’s rankings at the end, and it is often a result of the pre-season assumptions for a particular region/team.

    Funny that Shapiro was running a $900 million dollar scam and only ponied up a $150,000 donation to the U. What a cheapskate.

    Hinton’s article is right on the mark. Any team that has to replace 9 D starters (Bama) is going to have problems. Much the same could be said of florida’s attrition on both sides of the ball. On the other side of the coin, Dawgs aren’t getting much poll love for returning so many starters. That’ll change soon.

    Mr. Football, what record from UGA this year would satisfy you and get you off Richt’s back for a day or two?
