Let the good times roll

If you’re overly concerned about style points, you run the risk of missing this:

Georgia will travel to Knoxville seeking a 15th straight overall victory over an SEC East foe, that streak having started with Rodrigo Blankenship’s 25-yard field goal as time expired that gave the Bulldogs a 27-24 topping of Kentucky in Lexington late in the 2016 season. Georgia’s current tally of 14 in a row trails the 25 straight SEC East games Florida won under Steve Spurrier from 1992 to 1997 and the 16 straight the Gators attained under Urban Meyer from 2007 to 2010.

Before sweeping the East in 2017 and again last year under coach Kirby Smart, the Bulldogs never had gone through divisional play unscathed since the SEC split into two six-team divisions in 1992, when Arkansas and South Carolina joined the league. They became seven-team divisions in 2012 after the additions of Texas A&M and Missouri.

If the Dawgs manage wins in their next three games, they’ll arrive in Jacksonville having wiped out Corch’s divisional victory streak and can take another step towards Spurrier’s mark by beating the Gators.  Would I enjoy that?  Why, yes, I believe I would.

    I feel that they will win the next three, and I want to say they will win easily, but Ima not going to do that just yet. They will, though. GO DAWGS!

      Barring injuries, think it looks pretty safe for 2019. If FU surprises me and competes with The Barn tomorrow, that could be an iffy game in JAX. I don’t see that happening. Auburn still looks to be the toughest conference game we will face this season, with Mizzou a somewhat distant 2nd. Gaytors’ offense is as weak as expected.

      • As with most sec games UGA plays this year….teams will give that “best shot” in the 1st half of games only to slow down in the 2nd half, we all know if you get a step on your opponent….game on!

        Florida’s offense is all smoke and mirrors. No running game, no depth. They’ll face arguably the toughest defense in the league (outside of ours) on Saturday and then battle the Tigers in Death Valley the week after. Their oline will be held together by duct tape by the time they get to Jacksonville. I’m not saying they won’t get up for our game (they always do, at least for a half), but they definitely won’t be in the best shape.
