Adam Rittenberg’s take on Georgia’s future standing ($$) may be the apex of its kind. A small taste:
There are no more excuses in Athens. Georgia has the roster, both now and in the immediate future, to return to the CFP. If the Bulldogs’ four-decade national-title drought doesn’t end in the next three years, their fans should be massively disappointed.
What really earns his piece a chef’s kiss is (1) Georgia is only fifth on his list and (2) should rank third, based on its performance on the unit lists for quarterback, offense and defense. Which is a really sneaky way of admitting that it’s more likely than not Georgia has to go through Alabama twice to win a natty, unlike the three teams ranked between those two programs. Kirbs, get on that right away, will ‘ya?
