It’s Valentine’s Day, and that means March Madness is just around the corner. That’s actually exciting this year on a personal level for Bulldog Nation.
Somehow, Georgia’s stock has seemed to rise, at least according to Joe Lunardi. Ok, it didn’t realy rise, but he has us with a better draw, so that counts, right? His latest bracketology has UGA in better shape for the tourney than a few weeks ago. Even though we’re now a 10 seed according to Joe, that’s actually better in my opinion than the 8 seed I’ve seen. He’s got us playing St. John’s in Rd. 1, and the 2 seed is SDSU. Not a cake walk by any means, but if he’s right and we did get that draw it’s actually better than having to play a 1 seed in Round 2. Of course, finishing really strong and getting up to the 7 or 6 would be better, but who’s counting.
There’s much left to do in order to get there, but speculation is part of the fun. This huge 3 game stretch with Vandy, UT and UF will be telling. I don’t think many UGA fans care where we fall seed-wise, as long as we get in. We don’t need to get swept in these 3 games if we want to be one of the 65 invited to play in March. But sweeping them would sure be nice.
