Common theme here has been that Georgia is one of the most talented teams in the country, but it’s had difficulty playing consistently up to its potential. Some, especially after the loss to LSU, have found that profoundly disappointing.
Take a look at Brian Fremeau’s advanced stats for an analytical take on Georgia’s 8-1 start.
Georgia claims two of the top four performances of the season — and was the victim in the third.
The reality is that the team has performed at an elite level most of the season. That the perception is different is due to some extent because of the inconsistent showing in Baton Rouge, and to some extent because Alabama has been performing at an other-worldly level all season long.
For a team still getting its proverbial shit together, that ain’t half-bad.
