The Most Overrated Thing Was …
Oh no, Georgia only won by 17 over a MAC team … swarm … SWARM!
Brock Bowers – a tight end, and a great one – ran for a 75-yard touchdown on the second play of the game. Georgia never trailed, it wasn’t in any real danger, and it won easily in a 39-22 win over Kent State.
And no Georgia’s national championship hopes are apparently dashed.
Ohio State put 77 on Toledo two weeks ago and scored 52 on Wisconsin because it apparently didn’t feel like scoring 62. It has been fantastic so far.
Alabama bounced back after the Texas close call to destroy a few awful teams, and others without the giant national expectations – Minnesota, Syracuse, UCLA – are doing just fine.
But Georgia didn’t totally annihilate Kent State? There’s always basketball season.
Georgia destroyed a fabulous Oregon team. It destroyed a strong South Carolina. It started the season 3-0 with about as flawless a run as anyone could’ve possibly asked for.
It rolled up 529 yards of total offense last week, connected on 7-of-12 third down tries, and it had a strong balance to keep it all moving.
Yeah, it turned it over three times. Yeah, the defense gave up a big play to a team known for coming up with big plays. It wasn’t a perfect game, and there are certainly things to work on, but it’s as if the college football world is taking this one unfocused effort as a sign that Georgia is now somehow vulnerable.
Now, if there’s a problem a Missouri this week, or if there are any hiccups against Auburn or Vanderbilt to follow, then we’ll talk.
Until then, see you in Los Angeles on January 9th.
