Making the grade

Again, I’m not gonna pretend I know a ton about Cincinnati’s players, so instead I’ll give you this:

I wouldn’t say the numbers are incredibly lopsided overall there, but note the difference between Daniels’ and Ridder’s grades.  Josh Whyle appears to be a name worth keeping an eye on.

Also, obviously, this says zilch about team depth.  Take it for what it’s worth.

    Not sure PFF takes into account competition, but lots of talent evaluators like their QB, TE, edge rusher and a couple of DBs that aren’t even listed. Certainly we’ll need to play well to win. Talent-wise they’re like a middle of the road SEC team, which is pretty good.

      If the 247 Overall Talent Index thingy is to be believed (and it has us #1 so take that FWIW), Cincy is about the same level as Vandy and Mizzou in terms of talent.

    Rat poison? I think Cincinnati will give us all we want. We have the talent advantage, they have the experience advantage, so it should come down to motivation. Barring COVID, I like our chances. Kirby seemed to find the magic last year against a good Baylor team. It seemed to show against a hot Missouri team when we could have quit. Hopefully the guys have it for one more big game.

      I agree with your experience v. talent take, and also think we will get a tough fight. If UGA is focused, the line looks to be about right for the game and I see a 38-31 type game. But if the Dawgs start slow, Cincinnasti’s D will make it tough for us to play from behind.

    Just watched Brooks Austins’ film analysis of Cinci. He is not a Dawg fan but covers them for Sports Illustrated. He basically said it would take a miracle for Cini to beat us. They are so out manned on both lines of scrimmage, size wise, that UGA only loses if they don’t play with any passion. They have a OLB that is smaller than our cornerbacks. Stop the QB runs and they are done.

    I’m really looking forward to this game. I love watching Georgia football and get jacked when they beat the shit out of anyone. I want an ass kicking so severe that cars pull over and pedestrians come to attention when mg4life0331 drives by on his way to the bar.
