Question: do I want to live in a world where this week’s Coaches Poll has Georgia listed five spots ahead of South Carolina?

Let’s see: UGA one loss; USCe two losses. Which one should be ranked higher? What a quandary.
Yep. If we lose next week, it’ll all work out. If we win, likewise.
Is Disney World the place where next week’s Coaches Poll has Georgia listed ahead of Florida?
If so, it is time to pay a visit to the mouse.
It won’t last. And regardless of what happens in the Florida game, Georgia will lose to either Ole Miss, Auburn or Tech.
Other than your pessimism, why?
If there’s one thing this team has demonstrated, is that it can beat mediocre teams.
Ole Miss is starting to make me a little nervous. Freeze has them playing hard.
Of the games after UF, Ole Miss worries me the most.
Yep. Ole Miss almost has A&M. The Rebs are going to upset somebody this season. I just hope it isn’t us.
They already have. It was the Auburn game.
Not an upset.
Oh, I don’t know, Mayor….my Awbun buddies were sure as hell upset, bless they hearts.
Why would you be worried about Auby? We’ve already demonstrated our ability to go on the road and win in the hostile environment that is Commonwealth Stadium
Seriously though, we may play like crap against those 3, but I don’t expect to lose any of them. Our season will be dictated next weekend, not the other way around as you suggest.
Well, it would be just like Richt’s teams to look all world beater next week, finish the year with one loss – go to the SEC championship, play great for one half, and engage in a train wreck loss in the second half.
What a Jekyll/Hyde coaching career…
I’d take that.
Hooray for the coaches poll being a complete joke!
South Carolina can’t win the big game.
I know you meant that in snark, but if you look back at Steve Spurrier’s record, even before he started limping onto the field, Steve is not really stellar at that either….Georgia fans are always colored by his record against us.
Half snark, half truth. Not many people expected them to go through UGA/LSU/UF 3-0. But for as much as Spurrier has done at USC, they’ve also missed opportunities to be even better then they have been.
They best get focused for Mr Orange Pants.
Like, focus their corneas fot the glare perhaps.
“Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.”
I’m not sure if you were joking or not. I agree with the statement, though. Remember a few years ago when South Carolina was undefeated through 6 games, got all the way up to #5 in the country and then didn’t win another game? The Cocks team I saw lose to FU yesterday probably loses to Clemson and quite possibly another game remaining on their schedule as well. Arkansas seems to have come back to life and UT will beat somebody that the Vols are not supposed to beat before this season is over. It would be fine with me if all of ’em beat the Dicks…er…Cocks. A 7-5 regular season would look good on ’em.
Not sure if you’re joking or not either, but SOS always has had a slightly less than stellar record in the big games, if you define those as FSU + bowls from the UF years. You can look it up if you haven’t (probably already have lol). I always chalked it up to his single-minded desire to beat UGA and win the SEC. Not much else ever mattered to him despite what the fanbase thought and I don’t think he’s changed.
U Conn would be part of your proof.
we need to rise up and beat fla—I don’t care about anything else–in college football that is
Despite punting it as far as we could, we woke up with opportunity on our doorstep, again.
As biased as the computers polls are with their arbitrary beginnings, the results spit out by the geeks are far more qualified than the coaches to determine poll position. The coaches must have their ballots in by 9 AM Eastern on Sunday morning. So let’s see, Junior plays a game against Syracuse, say at night, finishes with the interviews, showers, catches a plane that leaves NY after midnight and arrives in LA around 7-8 AM. How much of Saturday;s action has he seen? Has he even seen the boxscores? Damned silly, and it counts for a third of the BCS. Wonderful system we have to determine success in CFB. Let the conference champions determine this and forget the polls.
Yes and with 8 teams representing.
10th in the BCS we moved up one place!
I think SC belongs ahead of Lousiville and Rutgers. If UGA doesn’t beat FU, they will belong ahead of us next week. Spurrier has a habit of losing the big ones necessary to get his program to the next level. Has lost two big games this year, couldn’t even get by Auburn last year, and the one time he made the SECGC he got blown out. Time for the pasture old fellow, you have lost your ethics and now cannot win the games you need. You may have the best talent in the East but fall short again.
He had ethics???
I think I remember he was pretty stout with discipline at FU. He suspended players, kicked them off the team, and didn’t around with who they were or what game was coming up. The new SOS is the one I dislike, he is a sad shadow of himself. Was a damned good coach at FU and Duke.
