Envy and jealousy, EDSBS edition

Spencer Hall worries about the effect the 7-0 Bulldogs may have on his psyche:

When Georgia’s gone 7-0 before, it meant SEC titles at least, and in one modern case — the hallowed 1980 season — it meant a national championship.

For your own protection, I suggest you do the same.

I don’t know what blows me away more this morning, that Georgia is fifth nationally in third-down conversion percentage, or that the Dawgs are converting more than 50% of their third down conversion attempts.  This, with the question marks at wide receiver and offensive line coming into the season, not to mention starting a true freshman quarterback for the last six games.

Those of you who are still down on Jim Chaney, you are welcome to explain your misgivings in the comments section.
