Not sure what the surprise is suppose to be.
Georgia is one of the surprises. Not many people would guess they have been just 5-15 against top 25 competition the past 5 years. No wonder Richt stays on the hot seat.
Oh, well I live in Ga so I know all about how great they are. I definitely keep up with their shortcomings. So I’m still going with, not sure what the surprises are.
Yeah we have not had much luck with the top 25 over the past few years. There have been, for the most part, some really close games that we didn’t win. There have also been a couple not so close games too. We do seem to beat an OOC team from about 70 miles up the road pretty regularly though.
LSU and Bama and a couple others do have the appearance that they seek out other top rated competition, but for UGA to say “look at us we beat all our SEC competition and we beat all our OOC competition” but their conference schedule is only the bottom half of the conference, and they dont play anybody OOC. It just seems like a joke to me.
I’m not making any excuses here, we didn’t win the games, but it’s not like we were playing scrub teams in those losses in or out of conference. Over the past 5 years we have traveled to Tempe, AZ, Stillwater, OK, Boulder, CO and played the world beaters Boise State. So to say that UGA hasn’t been going out of their way to play tougher OOC competition is not accurate. Also, I’m not real sure any UGA fans have been jumping up and down saying look at us either. The last few seasons have been quite humbling. Look the conference schedule was somewhat favorable last season and appears to be this coming season as well…but it’s not like we haven’t played Bamer, LSU, or Arky in the past 5 years, not to mention that we play Auburn every year.
