No pressure, kid.

CBSSports.com doesn’t think Isaiah Crowell has much riding on his shoulders this season.

Well, except for this:

In short, Crowell has both the opportunity and the talent to do for the Bulldogs exactly what Lattimore did for South Carolina last season. If he lives up to the hype, there’s no reason Richt can’t ride him right past a forgiving schedule (with no Alabama, LSU or Arkansas out of the West and no road game more difficult than Tennessee) all the way to Atlanta. If he doesn’t? Most likely, someone other than Richt is patrolling the Bulldogs’ sideline in 2012.

The guess here is that Crowell delivers, and the “Dream Team” momentum carries Richt into 2012 and beyond. But either way, Crowell enters 2011 as the most important true freshman in the SEC … and possibly the country.  [Emphasis added.]

The road taken.

If Steele’s prognostication for the SEC this season is somewhat offbeat (Georgia winning the East; Auburn finishing last in the West), the SEC football information directors’ picks are as conventional as they can be.
