If, as I just posted, the Kentucky, team of destiny thing makes for a nervous blogger, there is a countervailing consideration that gives me some comfort.
Georgia may be young and Kentucky may be experienced, but that only goes so far, at least when it comes to playing in a game with huge stakes. Nobody on the Kentucky sideline has been in a game with that kind of pressure on the line. Georgia, on the other hand, can fall back on plenty of first hand experience with those kinds of games from the 2017 season (not to mention, sadly, the inevitable result of what happens when you don’t show up ready to play against a good team on the road).
Maybe this is all off base and the ‘Cats will come out well prepared to take a punch and roll with it. But I sure want to see it happen before I give ’em credit for it.
