In a good food for thought piece — or, perhaps more accurately, topic for blog conversation — Seth Emerson ranks Georgia’s 2019 regular season opponents by degree of difficulty ($$) as follows:
- Notre Dame
- Texas A&M
- South Carolina
- @Georgia Tech
- Arkansas State
- Murray State
One thing that jumps out at me is how kind the road schedule is this year. Georgia only faces one formidable team this season in front of a stadium full of hostile fans. The rest of the real challenges are in Athens or neutral site Jacksonville.
The other thing that jumps out at me is ranking Georgia Tech ahead of Vanderbilt. I know he attributes that to timing, but if things play out that way in reality, Kirby ought to be ashamed.
