Predictions: Georgia pulls upset, Tech goes down

chalk

According to various websites that I looked through while doing research for this final week of investments — not counting those that kept asking for a credit card number, age verification and automatically opened 27 new windows (Close! Close! Dang it, close!) while my wife screamed down to the basement, “Are you still looking at point spreads!?” — I came across some interesting statistics.

The chances of winning Wednesday night’s $579 million Powerball drawing were approximately 1 in 176 million. That was still far more likely than the odds of having a meteor land on my house: 1 in 182,138,880,000,000. Or about double that for the same meteor landing on the ACC championship game and hitting somebody.

Is that a meteor falling on my house, or Georgia going to BCS title game?

Is that a meteor falling on me, or Dogs going to BCS?

Other odds I came across: 1 in 3 million chance of spotting a UFO; 1 in 11,500 of bowling 300 in a game; 1 in 649,740 of being dealt a royal flush; 1 in 20 million of being canonized; about even-money that one of those Christmas bell-ringers in front of Kroger will spot Bobby Petrino and punch him in the face, and 99 out of 100 that the aforementioned bell-ringer will be canonized.

Which leads me to Saturday’s SEC championship game between Alabama and Georgia. The odds are against Georgia winning. I know this because I keep hearing analysts break down the Alabama-Notre Dame game like Georgia is a hologram.

Yes, Alabama is good. The Tide have won two of the past three national titles. People are scared when they just look at a picture of Nick Saban, although in fairness you can’t tell from the picture that he’s only 4-foot-2.

Here’s what I see: Georgia’s defense is playing really well. Aaron Murray is throwing to the correct receivers (also the correct team). Todd Gurley — freshman going on Athens mayor. The Bulldogs were smacked at South Carolina, but Alabama lost at home to Texas A&M. The Aggies scored touchdowns on their first three possessions with that crazy no-huddle thing that Saban fears will doom civilization.

Georgia has a shot. A good shot. In fact — wait, did somebody just see a meteor? — I’m going upset. Take the 7½ points, but Dogs win the SEC and move on to the BCS.

(Programming note: We’ll be back in a few weeks with a special bowl edition of “Weekend Predictions,” as well as a new “Sack Schultz” bowl contest. Details to come.)

Undercard Events

(Look for expanded SEC and ACC game predictions in Saturday’s AJC.)

OK, I'll take some dish soap, paper plates, ACC tickets ...

OK, I'll take some dish soap, paper plates, ACC tickets ...

ACC: Georgia Tech vs. FSU: John Swofford dreamed the other night that he was eaten by 12,000 tarantulas. Unfortunately, he woke up to the real nightmare of his deteriorating conference title game: Tech is coming off a loss to Georgia. FSU is coming off a loss to Florida. Tech (6-6) is only because Miami and North Carolina are in NCAA timeout. Need a ticket? It’s $4. A section? Still $4.  Seminoles win but take Tech and 14.

Pac-12: UCLA: vs. Stanford: Jim Mora denies he intentionally lost last week’s game to Stanford to avoid a match-up with Oregon. I believe him. Only brilliant coaches could pull off something that devious. Same story in the rematch: Cardinal covers 9.

Big Ten: Nebraska vs. Wisconsin: Wisconsin is the Big Ten’s highest ranking ethical team in the Leaders Division at 4-4 and therefore is a conference finalist. So I guess the term “Leaders” is all relative to the Big Ten, huh? Huskers covers 2½.

What the ACC needs is a good promotion

* * * Internet-Only Special * * *

Saints at Falcons: The Saints are 5-6. If the playoffs opened today, they’d be in the Poinsettia bowl. This also will be Jonathan Vilma’s last game before the NFL bounty hearings, so if y’all could bring some cookies or maybe write a nice card for him to read during incarceration, that would be nice. Meanwhile, the Falcons are pretty banged up. But at 10-1, pain is all relative. Falcons cover 3½.

NFL Fridge Pack

The simplified new NFL training regimen.

The NFL's new simplified training regimen.

Seahawks at Bears: Forget Adderall suspensions. Chicago’s Brandon Marshall claims some players are seeking an edge with Viagra. Funny. I never looked at preseason games as foreplay before. Chicago covers 3½.

Texans at Titans: And then there’s the anti-Viagra: Ndamukong Suh’s foot somehow ended up in Matt Schaub’s groin. The good news: If Houston goes to the Super Bowl, Schaub can sing the national anthem. Houston wins but give me Tennessee and 6.

49ers at Rams: There are two sides to the debate on whether Jim Harbaugh should have benched Alex Smith. One side: It’s only Alex Smith. The other side: well, actually, there is no other side. Niners cover 7.

Panthers at Chiefs: If the Panthers (3-8) lose, it would make the home stretch stumble for the No. 1 pick interesting. Probably explains why the Chiefs (1-10) announced plans to wear Crocs. Carolina covers 3.

Eagles at Cowboys: Online headline: “Andy Reid to coach this week.” That would be a season first. Dallas covers 10.

The Eagles are dead. Like the parrot

TIME TO SETTLE UP

pokerdogs“If you ain’t just a little scared when you enter a casino, you are either very rich or you haven’t studied the games enough.” — VP Pappy

Last week: 10-1 straight up, 7-3-1 against the line.

Bottom dollars: 110-35 straight up, 85-58-2 against the line.

“Sack Schultz” update: This is it — the winner of the $5,000 Hawaii trip will be awarded this week. Our leader is “Wildone” of Kansas at 146 wins but 10 others are within five picks. I am not one of those 10.

Lilly Pick of the Week: Lilly (8-4) is on a five-game winning streak since her one-week furlough. This week, it was a choice between cheese-accessorized pictures of Uga and Nick Saban. Didn’t even look at Saban. Straight to Uga. Arf.

True story: Lilly swooped in on Uga's cheese so fast, I couldn't picture in time.

If Georgia would ever start playing a national champion schedule and stop playing patsies, then they might be prepared for what is about to slap them down Saturday. Since the Georgia wins and losses mirror the Falcons’, the Falcons playing on Thursday will upset the kosmic alignment. If the Falcons played on Sunday they would win, but … given their inability to play a national champion schedule (not preplanned, just happened that way), it looks like they lose again to the Saints. Win the division. Win home field. Then play the Saints after they win the Wild Card game in Atlanta and lose 49 – 2.

I agree with all. FSU could beat up Tech pretty bad.

Picking UGA to win is a very effective method of playing kiss and make up with UGA fans! This UGA team kind of steals your heart though. The two JJ’s , Kwame, Murray, Gurley, MM, Rambo… Great kids. Hard to root against.

I predict Georgia will win…they looked great last week and appear to be fully capable of winning it all. Congratulations and good luck.

GT will need to outscore FSU and I do not think it will happen. Could be like a few years ago when FSU drove for a 4 minute score, GT ran 1 play for a score, FSU 5 minutes to score, GT 2 plays to score….then GT took the time down in the 2nd half for a win. FSU will remember this and it will not likely happen again. FSU by 4.

Sweet dog Lilly picks UGA over a guy no one really likes, including Dawgs – me too 27-24. At the stadium where they play the Gator Bowl every year since 1946, Florida was going to be a tie score 17-17 with 2-point conversion with only 2 minutes 5 seconds remaining in the game. UGA beat, them when Jarvis Jones took the ball measuring his play on Tight End Jordan Reed coming up on him from behind and over-taking him, leaving Jordan Reed crying and Tampa Gator saying their players just up and flipped the ball into the end zone into the waiting hands of Sanders Commings.

There will be a lot more of that, again, day after tomorrow, stripping, picking and sacking while again Georgia will be scoring as we did against Florida with Todd Gurley running it in past Alabama too as he did past Florida and Aaron Murray will hit Malcolm Mitchell scoring as he did too against Florida, while shutting Florida out of scoring any Touchdowns against us.

Yes, it was just unforced. Jordan Reed was crying on the bench because well, he just ran it right to the goal line and flipped the ball up and into the end zone. Jarvis Jones had nothing to do with it. Just as Dominique Easley was not completed prostrate on top of Todd Gurley on the pass interference call the entire time the ball was in the air, holding onto to him not only the entire time the ball was in the air to him but all the way to the ground.

Sure are a lot of whining fans of other teams on these blogs.

It is going to get worse for them.

running it past Bama?

Iv’e gotta sleep,Thomas, Does that mean the Pups play smashmouth football, open up holes, and Gurley runs “past—phewww) like the Roadrunner or he merely runs around end cuz hes so much faster than Tide D on the flanks? Will await answer later.

Jinx. Why did you pick Georgia? Why can’t you go with common sense? As bad as I want Georgia to win, I think our offense will have trouble with their D and our D will have trouble with their O. If our offense can move the ball we have a chance. Murray must have a good game. It all hinges on him, I”m afraid. He must be able to pass the ball to the correct receiver. If Murray plays well the Dogs win. Please play well Murray. Go Dawgs, GATA.

Patched Tire On I-95 in Jacksonville November 28th, 2012 10:17 pm

“How does something strike you odd when our coaching staff is 1-11 vs the top 10 and have only beaten 1 top 20 team in 4 yrs

And the only two defenses our team played this year our offense stunk

You can rest assured the other big name programs would not put up with that poor performance

I think I have the right to question if this staff can get it done

Any smart thinking person would

Whats funny is everyone of the sports pundits have been saying the same thing; can UGA show up in a big game like bama does

Go ahead and research my past posts; they have all been geared toward kool-aid drinkers who come on this blog and run off at the mouth about winning a national title when this coaching staff hasnt shown they cant win big games

Ive just countered their argument

My posts have questioned decisions such as keeping Martinez on board for as long as they did or issues with the conditioning of the team or discipline issues

Im sorry you dont live in reality but have to force yourself to belive in a coaching staff that hasnt proved anything in 7 years

Again bring some facts to the table as to why I should believe instead of the typical no substance comments of go find another team”
________________________________________
I-95, sir, Mark Richt’s offense scored 2 TD against Florida while Florida scored -0- against his and Todd Grantham’s Defense of Jarvis Jones, John Jenkins, Kwame Geathers, Alec Ogletree, Bacarri Rambo, Shawn Williams, Sanders Commings, when Aaron Murray directed one drive to open the game with Todd Gurley scoring a TD, and then game-in-the-balance Florida behind us by only 1-point 10-9 fourth quarter on the road playing an undefeated team who today would be in our place instead and be ranked # 1 in the nation ahead of Notre Dame, Aaron Murray threw the 49-yard TD strike to Malcolm Mitchell with the downfield block on 2 Florida defenders, breaking them up, by Artie Lynch.

So, I don’t understand your comment that our offense stunk against Florida when we scored 2 TD on their # 5 best defense in the nation who beat # 7 # 9 # 10 and # 13, but who could not prevent us from scoring 2 TD on them while they scored -0- Touchdowns on us ? Maybe you can explain that position of yours, just a little better please I-95 sir ?

Our opponents 2012 are 61-59 not counting the bowl opponent only this season and that is the record of the 1-A FBS teams only, not counting Georgia Southern University.

6 of our opponents 2012 will be bowl teams : (1) 8-4 Vandie who has a good team obviously, (2) 11-1 Florida # 4 whom I believe deserves the National Championship 2012 already, (3) 11-1 Alabama # 2 obviously beating # 7 LSU, (4) 10-2 South Carolina # 10 clearly a top team even without my hero Marcus Lattimore, (5) Egg Bowl Winner Ole Miss, and (6) Maybe Notre Dame maybe not as our bowl opponent – all 6 bowl teams 2012 and of the 6 note please 4 of the top 10 teams UGA played 2012.

No matter what, this is what we have for 2012 season.

Also, Mark Richt has not lost to a bad team 2012 again, as he has not done in some time now. Many years of not losing to bad teams. Look at FSU losing to NC State 2012, for example. And, they are playing for their conference championship, FSU the # 97 best national university :

2012 FSU lost to NC State – 5-Loss team even vols beat by 2 Touchdowns
2011 FSU lost to 6-7 Weak Forest
2011 FSU lost to 5-Loss should have been 6-Loss Virginia
2010 FSU lost to 5-Loss should have been 6-Loss North Carolina

During this same timeframe, Mark Richt has not lost to such teams, none.

We are trying to tie the vols for 2nd place in SEC Championships All-Time, behind only Alabama.

And, in the AP Poll, we’ve been ranked 34 times in the Final AP Poll :

10 Mark Richt
4 Jim Donnan
2 Ray Goff
12 Vince Dooley
6 Wally Butts

AP Poll All-Time UGA :
# 3 in 2012 with 2 games remaining
# 19 in 2011
# 13 in 2008
# 2 in 2007
# 23 in 2006
# 10 in 2005 – Mark Richt has 2 SEC Championships
# 7 in 2004
# 7 in 2003
# 3 in 2002 – vols are 2nd All-Time SEC Championships 1 more than us
# 22 in 2001 – ten of 12 years ranked in AP Poll Top 25 Mark Richt

Yeah, we lost to South Carolina 2012; but there is not a single team in a single conference who has not had a loss 2012 unless they had unfair advantage in Ohio State’s 6th NCAA Probation in Football.

(1) AL just last year scored only 6 points at HOME and LOST, yet Won NC
(2) Choklahoma 2008 gave up 45 points @HOME LOST, played for NC
(3) FL at HOME LOST 2008 to a 9-4 Ole Miss team, yet Won NC
(4) Ohio State at HOME LOST 2007 to a 9-4 Illinois, yet played for NC
(5) LSU 2007 LOST to a 8-5 Kentucky team, yet Won NC
(6) LSU 2007 LOST @HOME 8-5 Arkansas giving up 50 pts, Won NC
(7) FL LOST double-digits to Auburn 2006, yet Won NC
(8) Choklahoma 2003 LOST 7-35 to Kansas St 4-LOSS, yet played NC
(9) LSU 2003 LOST 7-19 to an 8-5 FL, yet played for and Won NC
(10) Nebraska 2001 LOST by 26 pts, yet played for NC
(11) Florida State 2000 LOST to Miami, yet played for NC
(12) Florida State 1998 LOST to 7-5 NC State 7-24, yet played for NC

Mark Richt has beat :

# 4 Florida 2012 – I think you’ll have to admit that it got rid of your Flat Tire, didn’t it ?

17-9 at the stadium where the Gator Bowl is played every year starting 1946.

# 15 Auburn in 2007
# 19 Hawaii in 2007
# 13 Georgie tek in 2009
# 19 Virginia Tech in 2006

4-14 Mark Richt 1st 11 yrs vs made AP Poll Top 10 win % .2222
4-5 Wally Butts 1st 11 yrs vs made AP Poll Top 10 win % .4444
4-10 Vince Dooley 1st 11 years vs made AP Poll Top 10 win % .2857

The other 2 are in the Hall of Fame.

_____________________________________________
SEC against teams who made Top 10 in Mark Richt era :
_____________________________________________

13 Wins Florida # 1

12 Wins LSU # 2

11 Wins Auburn # 3

7 Wins Alabama # 4

6 Wins vols # 5

4 Wins UGA # 6

4 Wins Arkansas # 7

4 Wins Texas A & M # 8

I say Arkansas worse because none this season, upward trend UGA, and Texas A & M 8 because all but 1 are against non-SEC opponents.

But give all these teams their due, they have beat teams who made the AP Poll Top 10 you harp on I am the one who has studied all these years for us here I-95, with you quoting ME, sir, I-95.

We needed to do better at beating Top 10 teams, we do, you lose your Flat Tire and still you harp on it. We have 2 games remaining and you are steadfast we’re horrible at it, when as you can see 2 more would do wonders for Mark Richt before he ups his 72 NFL Draft Selections since he got here 2001 to I think 83 after this season I-95. Southern California is the only 1 better in the Mark Richt era starting 2001 and they have only 74, meaning they must have 10 NFL Draft Picks from their 5-Loss team 2012 unranked to be ahead in the Mark Richt era with the most NFL Draft Picks 2001 through today.

The point is that only Southern California has averaged better than Mark Richt in the Recruiting Rankings 2001 through today, averaging both Scout.com and Rivals giving Mark Richt avg # 7 recruiting ranking. And, this is validated, not only his top recruiting, but the recruiting services’ rankings themselves that 72 have been NFL Draft Picks starting 2001 too.

It’s fun. Look at the names just in this blog post by me of our heroes again 2012, 11 of whom go on to NFL Draft Picks themselves. They graduate. They LOVE Mark Richt. They came here because of them.

Before now last year, I had demanded Greg McGarity go ahead and sign him an extension. You asked me why ? I said because of his recruiting. You didn’t buy that then, and don’t still today.

FACTS ARE Mark Richt has a TON OF TALENT.

You are not going to win these games you want us to win, which we did win again this 2012 season, and did very well against what God Knows was going to be the # 1 NC 2012 for the 4th time in 17 years, Florida.

Don’t give me this crudola that our offense stunk against Florida – not when we scored TD to begin game and at the end, game in the balance to put them away when YES, Aaron Murray WILLED us to the 17-9 win by HIMSELF. That final drive was a drive of beauty. Todd Gurley was interfered with the whole entire time the ball was in the air and all the way to the ground with the ball in the air by Dominique Easley.

We have set the record for most td in a season ever for UGA 2012.

We have a better QB and better TB than Alabama. I know you know this I-95.

TALENT.

We have FUN watching all this talent.

Yes, it’s frustrating when 30 are sent packing from 2012 to leave us with 64 Scholarship Recruits for Alabama and bowl opponent plus the 1 transfer-in, including the 2 loss for the season our starting Wide Receivers; but again, look at the talent in this blog post I name all 11 of whom are NFL draft picks after 2 more games representing us.

Mark Richt never was head coach before. Mike Adam$ prevented Vince Dooley from teaching these things he is learning OJT.

He is a young man. A fine man by your statements.

The KIDS ADORE HIM.

He will learn these lessons with another program, if we were to let him go. And, this is why I PUSHED for him to STAY this time last season. A little before now, last season. It was I first who demanded the extension to AJ-C blogs.

I did it when we got commitments from these running backs. I knew that that was what we needed.

Most of these other teams ran up their totals of beating teams who made the AP Poll Top 10 all in a season. Or, maybe all in 2 seasons. Mark Richt stands on the precipice of doing that as you speak tonight I-95. There is no question we beat Notre Dame. The question is do we beat Alabama.

27-24. Because our TALENT is better than Alabama’s 2012. 2012 different matter altogether when Alabama does not have all these freshmen they do now have in all these key positions.

I am not saying forget about South Carolina, a great team in their own rights, especially if Marcus Lattimore was not injured, my hero. I am saying use it as motivation.

I really want us to beat Alabama, leaving them with 64 games played against us, 38 of which were oddly home games for them, beating us 36 times.

I’d like to :

Win 5th & 6th win Mark Richt era vs teams made AP Poll Top 10
Win our 3rd SEC Championship of Mark Richt era and tie vols # 2 all-time
Sign a top recruiting class with some late commitments from top kids watching all this

We are the Center of College Football

“Auburn held the lead through the third quarter, and most of the fourth, until winning it with a late-second field goal at the end of the game.”

Which is exactly what I stated. Auburn had the lead at half-time. If Cam hadn’t have thrown a weak short pass then they’d have won by a larger number. Not that it matters because they won.

“what are the lengths, in time, of BCS games, compared to comparable regular-season games (eg, network TV, etc)?”

I’m not sure because I’ve only watched two entire BCS games in my life. 2004 Sugar Bowl and 2011 BCS title game between Auburn/Oregon. I wasn’t really paying much attention because I was too busy watching and being nervous about the outcome.”

Ok, finally. So you’re an AUBURN fan. Auburn Virginia Tech actually January 3, 2005 a 16-13 Auburn win in Sugar Bowl following 2004 season, and Auburn Oregon with Cam Newton 2010 NC played January 10, 2011 actually 22-19 Auburn win.

FOR THIS, all this time, you come running in here doing NOTHING but PUTTING DOWN UGA and talking about NOTHING but Auburn.

Under The Bleachers,

Why don’t you do like HUH??????????? and refuse to answer the question of who is your team doing so much better than UGA ?

Too obvious why

It doesn’t surprise me that an Auburn fan would have a handle of duh??????? or huh?????.

It doesn’t surprise me that so many fans of so many teams whom they are ALL afraid to put their team’s name in their handle would run in here

NOW

Nor, that they’d ALL prefer to refuse to answer the question of just who in the blazes in their team. Obviously, we all we just do as we do to the 1 lone Ohio State fan and the 1 lone FSU fan and just give them H E double L comparing our team to their team under Mark Richt.

Oh, and act stupid, or be stupid actually, like I don’t discuss the won/lost records of the opponents of UGA 2012. Sure as hell I have. Every single post. And, my numbers are neither made up nor wrong, while you prefer to not discuss that I named your Division III team you actually root for in here trying to put down UGA

NOW.

No bloody wonder.

Lies ? That I provided 3 URL Links showing UGA with 6 NC going for # 7 ?

Oh, yeah, you really got me there.

Oh, so let’s ban me because I dare to answer the direct questions and also bring up that excuse me you gave FLORIDA HELL 2012, too, yourself half-wit FSU fan of the stinking ACC who LOST to Florida as YES SIR, I guaranteed pre-game. You sure did NOT.

Yes, this is great all these oh your posts don’t stink to high heaven – afraid to compare

YOUR TEAM with UGA.

I just don’t get how everyone always looks at a schedule and says its soft and that’s the only reason you won. Lets take Alabama for an example since they are world class beaters and put them with this schedule. Home vs. Georgia, SC, FLA, and Auburn. Then the away games are LSU, A&M, Ole Miss and Ms. St and then one good non conference game (ex. michigan) and two cupcakes. You mean to tell me that Alabama would go undefeated or 11-1? Hell no, if they went 10-2 with that schedule they should be #1. My point to all this is you can’t play a tough schedule every year and expect to whip everyone you play. So just because you get into a championship game on a soft schedule doesn’t mean your not good.

UGA wins 20-10. GT should be at home. Since they will be in Charlotte, they lose
24-45. Sad to have to say this about the school I have pulled for since 1952. We may be at an all time low except for the Lewis years. A lot of blame to go around for the decline of the program. Most GT fans have their own reasons. I will say its not primarily because of “academics” or coaching. I believe that the decline began
when pro football became competition for the fans. Although the Falcons have not
been consistently good, they have hurt GT attendance and fan interest . Also, UGA
has drawn so much attention (well deserved) that the best in state players chose
them over GT.

Thomas,

If you have not been paying attention over the year, Bleachers has been a rather cordial and knowledgeable poster who has been pretty fair to all SEC schools. He has stated over and over that Alabama is his school. He has been very fair to us at UGA, even though our opinions often differ.
As for you, as a Dawg fan for over 40 years, graduated from UGA, worked in the athletic dept during my time on campus, I am embarrassed however amused by post like yours above that are not ALL fact based as you state over and over. They are your opinions and you have that right, but writing a novel on the this blog shows how inferior you must feel. A paraagraph at the most will better serve your point.

Imagine that the AJC (better known as the Dawg Lovers) predicts a Ga. win.
