Look, it’s a late season cupcake game. Louisiana-Lafayette is Sagarin’s 135th rated team. They have a losing record against a weak schedule. If Georgia is on an upward trend as the last couple of weeks seem to indicate, then this should be a relatively easy win.
Obvious rebuttal: Nicholls. Yeah. So, there’s that. Which makes this week’s key to the game also obvious. Show up, please.
The one weird thing I can’t help but note is a couple of statistics where the two teams couldn’t be much closer: rushing defense, where ULL is 20th nationally and Georgia is 21st, and red zone defense, where Georgia is 123rd and ULL is, somewhat amazingly, even worse at 125th. Together, those stats would suggest a certain approach on offense to me, but then again, I don’t embrace the notion of a Fabrisian challenge in the way that Smart and Chaney seem to at times.
Other than that, try not to get injured, Dawgs.
Consider this your game day thread. I have to go get ready to leave now.
