Your game day post, Blowing the Admiral edition

Georgia beat Auburn by 32, so today’s line of 39.5 should be no big deal, right?

Well, take a look at the last five… er, four meetings between Georgia and Vanderbilt:

  • 2017: Georgia 45, Vanderbilt 14
  • 2018: Georgia 41, Vanderbilt 13
  • 2019: Georgia 30, Vanderbilt 6
  • 2020: (DNP)
  • 2021: Georgia 62, Vanderbilt 0

So, sure, it could happen, but there’s a track record to suggest that’s an awfully big bite to chew.ย  Especially when you consider (1) Vandy’s a better team than it was last season; (2) it’s going to be tempting with the bye week on hand to get the starters out of the game early; (3) the running game came alive last week; and (4) the teams that are first and fourth in the conference in time of possession are facing off.

Today will be a success in my mind if the health situation improves and the downfield passing game connects a couple of times.ย  Anything beyond that is short-term gravy.

Have at it in the comments.

Your (non-Dawg) game day post

Looks like we’ve got a few schools on the bye this week.

A few games of note:

  • Penn State@Michigan is a battle of two top 10 teams.
  • Kansas@Oklahoma has one ranked team facing an unranked team, but neither is the one we thought before the season started.
  • Alabama@Tennessee… well, how many meteor games can the Vols play in this season?
  • Arkansas@BYU makes me wonder if Sam Pittman is a masochist.
  • LSU@Florida — no shoes will be harmed in the making of this game.ย  Which is a shame..
  • Mississippi State@Kentucky will be an interesting clash of styles.

What’s on your list?

Maybe they’re not as bad as you think they are.

Stetson’s gotta be happy with that, even if we have questions.
