I guess this is supposed to be profound.
One little thing, though. Saturday would be virtually an SEC Championship elimination game for both teams even if Georgia had beaten LSU. That’s a tribute to the Gators, who have played themselves into divisional contention.
But in terms of the SECCG, Baton Rouge changed nothing. I’m not trying to go all “goals are still in front of Georgia” on y’all; it’s just that the loss doesn’t put any added pressure on the Dawgs this week. (Should it come to playing Alabama in December, that’s another story. But I digress.)
Don’t get me wrong. There are certainly interesting intangible factors in play, something that’s true of any bitter rivalry game. Just don’t read too much into the consequences of the LSU game.
