It’s nice to have this sort of national perception:
Time to analyze the SEC’s non-conference schedule. Although there’s not much to analyze. Pitiful run of opponents. Georgia, as usual, more than carries its weight. Nobody else really does.
At least maybe it is. I can’t say it’s really gotten Georgia much extra juice in any given national title hunt it’s been involved in during the Richt era, although to be fair, I can’t say it’s really cost Georgia much, either. (Some of you will probably point to the 2008 loss to ‘Bama after the Arizona State trip, but let’s be honest – any team that loses by 39 to Florida ain’t a national title contender. Also, let’s not ignore the fact that last season, Georgia emerged deserving to be included in the national title discussion after its September, despite the road loss at Clemson.)
But as we approach the dawning of a new postseason day, this kind of stuff is really supposed to matter now, right, selection committee? So why do I remain unconvinced it will?
