Georgia -vs- Tennessee

Georgia -vs- Tennessee, 2008 version. Georgia comes into the showdown with the Vols coming out of an off-week which followed a trouncing at the hands of Alabama. Tennessee enters the clash following a lackluster win over Northern Illinois where UT introduced a new starter at quarterback. So there you have it; you've "got the picture". The take on the contest by 'Opinion on Sports' is that Tennessee will play their best game of the year against Georgia in Athens. They always play the Dawgs well, and this year will be no exception. But this year will not be like the trashing Georgia got in Knoxville last year. Mark Richt's Bulldogs will not be ambushed 'Between the Hedges' again this week. We will not trail by 31 points at halftime again. Our offensive line will perform better, and Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford will both have big days. Tennessee will put some points on the board against the Dawgs defense, but Georgia will prevail Saturday afternoon. It will not necessarily be a rout, but it won't be close either. It was said last year that Georgia 'saved' Phillip Fulmer's job by the way his Volunteers manhandled the Dawgs when he himself was constantly hammered by the Vol Nation. He is again being lambasted this season, but he cannot count on Georgia to bail him out. This year, those same Bulldogs will be the ones nailing another nail in his coffin.
