Holding on to that No. 1 spot
Chip Towers of DawgNation breaks down some keys to the South Carolina sport, together with how a lot Georgia ought to rely upon the move, the impact South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley might have on the sport, and the battle within the trenches. He additionally included this details about the final time Georgia was ranked No. 1 within the nation, albeit within the preseason AP ballot, 9 years in the past.
They didn’t lose immediately the final time they had been No. 1. Based primarily on the best way it completed the 2007 season – with a No. 2 rating and blowing out opponents – Georgia opened the 2008 marketing campaign ranked No. 1 in each The Associated Press and USA Today preseason polls. The Bulldogs received beneath the AP’s No. 1 banner on Aug. 30, 2008 (the coaches had already dropped them to No. 2), defeating Georgia Southern 45-21. But the pollsters weren’t impressed and UGA fell to No. 2 behind Southern Cal by the point it performed Central Michigan Week 2.
I be aware that solely as a result of the Bulldogs might endure the same destiny this week. CFP committee chair Kirby Hocutt mentioned Georgia narrowly acquired the sting over Alabama within the first version of the 2017 rating. It’s not exhausting to think about a state of affairs the place an Alabama blowout of LSU coupled with a narrowish Georgia victory over South Carolina results in the Tide and Dawgs buying and selling spots within the rating.
Speaking of the playoff, I’ve seen lots of confusion from followers concerning Georgia potential locations in a hypothetical CFP semifinal. Would the Bulldogs go to the Sugar Bowl or the Rose Bowl? The reply would rely upon Georgia’s seed and which different groups are the CFP. From Seth Emerson of DawgNation:
The committee tries to be as shut as doable to custom and area, so if there’s any likelihood of placing the Big Ten champion within the Rose Bowl semifinal sport, then they’ll. (I’m already type of discounting the Pac-12 champion for the playoff.) But in the end they’ve accomplished a fairly good job of placing the precedence on the seeding quite than as if these had been actual bowl video games. If Georgia had been to win out then I’d guess it will get the Sugar Bowl, with the committee deferring to placing the No. 1 seed nearer to dwelling.
South Carolina ain’t performed no one
South Carolina coach Will Muschamp has admitted Georgia would be the hardest workforce his workforce has confronted this season, nevertheless it’s price reiterating that the caliber of competitors is getting ratcheted approach up this weekend. From Josh Kendall of The State:
The Bulldogs are the primary ranked opponent South Carolina has performed this season. The Gamebads’ 4 SEC wins have come in opposition to groups with a mixed 1-18 convention file. South Carolina was 1-Four in opposition to ranked opponents in Muschamp’s first season as head coach.
Advanced stats again up the notion that South Carolina ain’t performed no one. The Gamebads haven’t confronted a workforce with an S&P+ ranked increased than 35th, and their final six opponents are all ranked 72nd or worse in S&P+. Georgia is ranked third. This is gonna be a complete new ballgame for Coach Boom and his workforce.
