I don’t want Booch out of Knoxville, but if this were the consequence of his being canned, I could definitely live with the trade off. (Especially because it’s 50/50 he’d bolt Tennessee again if given the opportunity.)
If Georgia manages to pull off an accomplishment that leads to rings for everyone responsible, would Greg McGarity present one to Jeremy Pruitt?
I bet the Coke bottle’s about to pop its cap.
He just can’t see it, y’all.
“I just can not imagine a scenario where the committee is willing to put two from one conference in,” Herbstreit said. “Georgia looks great right now. Alabama does too. You talk about their schedule. Jalen Hurts is only getting better and more comfortable with Brian Daboll in their scheme. I just can’t envision those two teams both getting in and two other Power conferences getting left out. It would have to be an incredible unique situation.”
He really can’t. But he’ll have a sad if that’s the way it goes.
“Even if they’re both deserving, its just hard for me to imagine the committee not recognizing and giving a Power 5 conference a chance to get into that playoff,”Herbstreit said. “I’m all about the best four. I don’t care what conference you’re in at all,” Herbstreit said. “I hope the committee does the right thing. To me, if Bama and UGA (are the best) when the dust settles, I just can’t watch the committee not give them a chance. And if they feel Georgia is one of the top four teams after watching the (SEC Championship) game, so be it, put it in there.”
Will I have to amend the Lexicon definition of the Herbstreit Doctrine? Stay tuned.
I touched on this in yesterday’s review post, but, yeah, Georgia’s a monster in the third quarter.
Halftime adjustments, for the win.
Paul Myerberg looks at the remaining schedules of the 20 P5 one-loss or unbeaten teams and rates Georgia’s the third-easiest of the bunch.
3. No. 3 Georgia (7-0)
Toughest games left: at Auburn, at Georgia Tech
The rivalry game with Florida on Oct. 28 is bound to get interesting, but Georgia’s toughest matchups come on the road: at Auburn on Nov. 11 and at Georgia Tech to cap the regular season Nov. 25. But this is the sort of schedule that should have fans dreaming of a matchup with unbeaten Alabama in early December to decide the SEC championship.
Tech tougher than the Gators? That ain’t right.
Yeah, this is not a good look.
Now at 3-3, Florida is off to its worst start since 2003 under Ron Zook.
