Due to a crazy week (and complete confusion about our Dawgs) we have not spent much time breaking down this Saturday’s game. We apologize.
However, here is a brief outlook. We hope it’s right:
The Dawgs are an 8 point favorite against the Dores. I hope that won’t be enough. The past few weeks have been bad news for UGA. The late loss vs. LSU hurt bad, and last week was embarrassing. Before the game in Knoxville, I think the 3-2 record was close to where we should be. We could easily have been 4-1 or 1-4. So 3-2 was good. Last week was just an abomination. But we’ve all dwelt on that enough.
So, a game versus Vandy is just what the Dr. ordered if we have any chance at turning this thing around. For arguments sake, let’s forget temporarily about last week. Vandy should not be able to hang with Georgia in any area of the game. If we can stop their run, we should be more than fine. (Again, let’s forget that we make opposing QB’s look really good.) Their passing game is really bad. If they throw more than 200 yards against us, then I’d think Willie will just walk away. Conversely, they shouldn’t be able to stop us offensively. I’m pretty sure CSS will have the line back on track. He is that kind of guy.
The long and short of it is, I don’t think this one will be close. Sometimes it is, but for the most part, we handle Vandy. That should be the case again this week, as this is one of Vandy’s weakest teams in a few years.
A much needed bye comes after this game. A win here, and maybe we can regroup and get ready for a trip to the WLOCP. I won’t call this a must-win game, because frankly it’s not anymore. That was last week. At this point, we’re just trying to finish respectably.
Again, we apologize for not providing any scientific data for this week’s breakdown, but we will do better next time. Safe travels to Cashville. Go Dawgs!
