Dogs are third in new BCS standings

Georgia is third in the new Bowl Championship Series standings, which were released Sunday night.

Notre Dame is No. 1 and Alabama is No. 2. All three teams moved up after Oregon and Kansas State were upset Saturday night. Florida is fourth in the BCS.

The top two teams in the BCS standings at the end of the season will play for the national championship on Jan. 7 in Miami.

If Georgia beats Georgia Tech and Alabama beats Auburn Saturday, the Bulldogs and Crimson Tide will play for the SEC championship, with the winner advancing to play for the national title.

Notre Dame, Alabama and Georgia also held the top three spots in Sunday’s Associated Press poll.

In other college news Sunday, Tennessee fired coach Derek Dooley. Dooley, 44, had a 15-21 record that included an 0-15 mark against Top 25 teams.

Our entrance to the single elimination playoffs begins next weekend when we play the only game that counts. Georgia Tech is the only team that matters this week.

Go, Dawgs!

The real question is what will UGA be ranked after losing to Alabama 45-7?

UGA just needs to focus…..focus on beating GA Tech, then focus on the SECCG in Atlanta. That has been a major issue for CMR and his teams in the past. Georgia has probably the most realistic chance to play for a BCS Title now than they have ever had in the CMR era. Let’s see if CMR can keep his players focused and get them coached up against playing Alabama. There are a lot of people who believe that Georgia can handle Alabama, but do the DAWGS feel like they can beat Bama?? That’s the million dollar question. Do they come out flat and timid like they did against South Carolina or do they come confident and strong like they did against Florida. The tale of two different teams will be the difference maker. Go DAWGS!!

UGA has played number 6 Florida and 12 South Carolina. They lost to South Carolina 35 to 7 and it could have been worse. UGA beat Florida because they had 6 turnovers and one was right at goal line for possible tie of the score, won by 8. UGA has struggled against many teams no where to be found on the top 25 list, not played any other team rated.

Ask yourself the honest question: Is it fair once you see the schedules that Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M, Florida and South Carolina have played??

No, but doesn’t matter, UGA has an opportunity now regardless. South Carolina has beat UGA three straight years, if UGA wins the NC what title should be given to South Carolina. Champion of the Champion

Game Changer……if you want fair, go to a elementary school and watch a recess kickball tournament. This is College Football. Based on your logic, if Alabama were to win than A&M gets to be the Champion of Champion?? Look if Georgia wins the NC…..South Carolina fans will be able to put their 2012 Schedule on their “pride” t-shirts and you can circle that game. Georgia will proudly hoist the crystal ball.

I have it on good authority that Vince Dooley will be announced as the next head coach of Tennessee at 4 p.m. ET.

Hey Game-Changer…your argument is pointless. Though your chickens beat us handily, you lost two games. While UGA regrouped and won the rest of its games, your chickens did not. You, like Visor Boy, are a whiner.

UGA is gonna finish the drill this year and it will beat Bama. And play in the NCG. Your chickens will not.

Really?

@gamechanger… Look at Bama’s schedule while you are nickpicking UGA’s. Barely beat LSU who lost to FLA ( UGA beat) and struggled mightily with Ole Miss yesterday who UGA easily dismissed. Lost to Texas A&M who lost to LSu and Fla. Did not have to play UGA or Fla or South Carolina. Who is deserving now?

Dooley should have never been hired. Like his old man before Hershel, he is at best a mediocre coach. Nevertheless, I am sorry they fired him. As long as Dooley was there we could count on Tennessee be a lousy team.

Okay, a new thread?

Overrated. That is what UGA is. I look at the standings and I know UGA could not beat Alabama. They could not beat and have not in a long time beat South Carolina. They beat Florida but I doubt they could do it tw… actually, UF is getting worse and worse every week that goes by. Maybe UF should be dropped from top 15? Anyways, FSU? No way, FSU wins. A&M? Hello Johnny Football, easy win. LSU? LSU wins. Oregon? Oregon scores 50… by half. Stanford? Stanford wins close.

The reason I can say all of this with certainty, is that UGA always loses the big games unless there is a hurricane and the other team melts down and turns the ball over. Even then, the other team was in position to tie and win at the end. It’s mind boggling how overrated UGA is this year but it’s a product of one of the fishiest schedules ever devised for an SEC team.

Even then it couldn’t stop UGA from doing what they do best, lose in big games.

52-14. Alabama makes a statement to get Saban off their back.

What is it Bummer fans? You decide not to commit suicide after A M plaster yalls a$$? All you have to to is vent on a Ga vent? Could it be that Bummer is beatable? If the last 2 QBs had there way with you, wait till Murray gets done. Dawgs win and take whoever in Miami.

By the way to the Bummer fan that predicted 45-7..I will take all of that you are giving but I won’t take titles on house trailers as pay

The key to beating Bama is with Aaron Murray’s continued improved play and confidence in the big game. Also, no injuries against the bugs. NO WAY tek wins in Athens or any field for that matter.

Hopefully dawgs have saved their best for last and will play bama tough with some new offensive razzle dazzle. I trust that Grantham will have the D rockin but will it be enough against bama ?

If Oregan wins the rest of there games plus the Conference Championship they will play for the NC because of there schedule.They have played more ranked teams……

Bottom line is nobody wants to play Georgia at this time as we are taking no prisoners! We will whip Tech and Alabama and destroy whomever we play in the National Title Game! Dawgs are the best and then there is the rest! Richt for coach of the year!
