Just what we need on a(nother) hot June day: A topic to make things even hotter. And here it is.
The Orlando Sentinel ranks the Georgia Bulldogs No. 64 in its preseason listings for college football 2010.
I say, channeling my inner Keanu, “Whoa.”
From Jeremy Fowler of the Sentinel, who likewise seems incredulous at his paper’s appraisal:
I have a hard time believing the Bulldogs would implode under [Mark] Richt, one of the country’s most consistent coaches who faces a crucial turning point in his career. And Georgia benefits from a down year for the SEC East. But there simply aren’t any guarantees for UGA right now.
And that’s true. There aren’t. Me, I’d be willing to err on the side of optimism for the coming season regarding Richt and his team. (Indeed, I believe I already have. I’ve said Georgia will go 9-3.) And I have a hard time envisioning any scenario that would make these Bulldogs the 64th-best team in the land. But maybe that’s just me.
