Georgia hasn’t had much respect from the national pundits over the last two weeks. I mean, how else do you describe a widespread attitude that a top ten team was destined to lose to a team riding a fifteen-game conference losing streak?
Have the Missouri and Arkansas results made for a perceptible change in the media’s opinion of Georgia? Maybe. At least I’m seeing a couple of canaries in the coal mine now.
Check out Bruce Feldman’s brief synopsis of where Georgia stands. Kudos for taking a crack at “everybody’s trendy upset pick”.
And Jerry Hinnen asks a good question in his piece: “If the absence of Gurley and the UGA secondary aren’t enough to derail the Bulldogs, what holes do they really have?”
I hate to think stuff like this matters, but when the selection committee is going all touchy-feely this year, I don’t want the Dawgs to be perceived as the team that was expected to lose to Missouri and Arkansas. So, yeah, this is a start, hopefully.
