Georgia Bulldogs: A Force To Be Reckoned With
Florida and South Carolina won their games convincingly Saturday afternoon. Even though the Gators romped over a poor excuse for a college football program in Kentucky, and Carolina pretty much throttled a team playing literally 'out of their league' (no pun intended) in Missouri, they both took care of business somewhat impressively. They got my attention to the point of admitting that they both will be formidable foes when Georgia plays them this season. Then later in the evening, the Bulldogs played Vanderbilt. Yea I know it was only Vandy, but the Commodores have been selling the point to anyone who would listen (and many who wouldn't) that they are the new Vanderbilt. A real player in Southeastern Conference football. Well, new Vandy, old Vandy, ya Mama's Vandy or whatever, they ran into a force in the Georgia Bulldogs that no one in the conference would have wanted to play last night , with perhaps the exception of Alabama. Georgia played a focused, dominating, forceful game that was a complete show of superiority in every phase of the game. They are a team on the verge of putting it all together to see just how good they can be. There is an awful lot of football to be played this year, and the SEC is a tough league to play at the top of your game every Saturday. However, I like taking my chances with this bunch of Bulldogs. So much so that they now have my attention much more than Florida and South Carolina. I'm sure those two feel the same way after Saturday night.
