An existential question

If The Citadel is dunking on Tech, do I really need to?

Your non-game game day post

Okay, just because Georgia isn’t suiting up today doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of other games to watch.  Here’s a few:

  • Texas A&M @ Arkansas:  The team the Hogs last lost to, San Jose State, got whipped by Air Force last night.  This one looks to be ugly.
  • Ole Miss @ Alabama:  The line — Tide by 35.5 — is screaming for a back door cover, but that’s about all.
  • Virginia @ Notre Dame:  I’d love for my ‘Hoos to pull the upset today, but, then again, I would have liked for them not to have struggled against Old Dominion.
  • USC @ Washington:  Two of Southern Cal’s starting cornerbacks are out, so let’s see if Eason lights ’em up.
  • Mississippi State @ Auburn:  Think the Tigers survive today.
  • Ohio State @ Nebraska:  I’m surprised at the number of people who think this is gonna be a game today.
  • Kentucky @ South Carolina:  Think Boom’s gonna need a bigger Sandstorm.

On the outside looking in

I’m curious what y’all think of something And The Valley Shook’s Billy Gomila posted yesterday:

Color me unimpressed by Georgia’s win over the Irish last week. The atmosphere was certainly impressive — pretty light show — but let’s be real here. Georgia was a significant favorite, had Notre Dame completely outclassed on both sides of the ball and still had to sweat this game out. They scored just 7 points in the first half and had all of 59 passing yards. But we’re going to pretend that Jake Fromm checkdown charlie-ing his way to that number on 11-of-12 completions is special? That’s basically a well-run version of LSU’s offense under Les Miles. And that’s with a group of targets that’s every bit as highly-recruited as any fielded here. I’ll say this much for Fromm — he made some big throws down the stretch and he deserves credit for that. But if he can make those throws why aren’t Kirby Smart & Co. letting him do it more often? Yeah, they’ll roll over the East, because how could they not. But in a tight game against any team with a pulse, I don’t see how people can trust this team right now.  [Emphasis added.]

Fair?  Unfair?

I’ll say that I don’t recall anyone saying Fromm’s first half against ND was anything special.  But the real tell for me is the question I highlighted.  If that’s rhetorical — and I kinda assume it is — the issue with Fromm isn’t Jake Fromm.

The only thing I really take exception to is his conclusion.  Didn’t Georgia just win exactly the kind of game he describes there?  Or am I missing something?  (Then again, if by “any team with a pulse”, he means only teams in, say, the top five, I guess we’ll have to wait and see.)

All their goals are still ahead of them.

It’s not even October yet and the Pac-12 doesn’t have a single undefeated team remaining in its midst.

Well played, gang.
