Gamecock Man gives that hope thing a chance.
This is obviously a tough loss, but there is a silver lining. Particularly considering how Florida played today, we’re likely going to be favored in all remaining conference games in a schedule that’s easier than UGA’s, and if we can take care of business and win out, certainly not out of the realm of possibilities if our defense improves over the course of the season, we can catch Georgia in the standings. We’ll have to hope for Georgia losses, which aren’t assured, again particularly considering how Florida looked today, but there’s still a reasonable chance they’ll lose at least two remaining conference games. We need to take care of business from here on out and see what happens.
That’s the right mindset to take, but I’m curious who pins the “reasonable” two losses on the Dawgs. LSU’s the obvious pick for one of those, but which team in the East matches up better against Georgia than against South Carolina? Or is he climbing on board the Gus bus?
I’m definitely not counting my chickens before they’re hatched, so to speak, but it seems to me we’re getting pretty close to “on any given Saturday” territory for that second loss. And that kind of approach cuts both ways.
