Georgia’s football team holds its first scrimmage of preseason camp this afternoon in Sanford Stadium. More on that later today. Meanwhile, here’s a quick and surprising note:
College Football News is out today with its preseason national “Top Five” rankings. No surprise who’s Nos. 1 and 2, Alabama and Ohio State, same as in the coaches’ poll last week. But look who’s No. 3:
The same Georgia that is No. 21 in the coaches’ poll.
The same Georgia that won’t be ranked in the Top 25 of Sports Illustrated’s College Football preview issue that hits newsstands tomorrow.
So why such a lofty and consensus-defying opinion of the Dogs from College Football News?
You can click here for the full report, but here’s part of what CFN says about the Bulldogs:
This year’s team should be back to form thanks to a deep offensive line that will be among the best in the country (if everyone stays healthy), a phenomenal linebacking corps, a strong backfield, and a future NFL star in WR A.J. Green. Throw in the best kicking game in college football, and shhhhhh … here’s your sleeper for the national title.
One spot behind Georgia in CFN’s Top 5 is . . . No. 4 Florida.
Oklahoma is No. 5.
So what do you think about this?
