    Tennessee fans and Florida fans have become very similar in that they find a bit of success and suddenly think themselves to be world-beaters. That's fine, Vols fan. Come on down to Sanford this Saturday and get your beating. Dawgs on top, 30-13.

    “George’s massive offense of line”.

    Good freaking grief.

    I question his appraisal of the kicking game. I'll give him that they might have an edge in FG with our new guy and their senior but punting, no way. Carmada is, in my opinion, the best punter in the SEC. It's a wash, at the very worst, for us. If I'm going bird hunting, give me a pointer; if I'm going to a "dog fight", give me a Bull Dawg every time!!

    On any given day anything can happen, look at USC last year, but that's not the norm. Our roster is hands down better, much better I would be inclined to say. We should win this game without a doubt, another day at the office....

    Mr. Price mentioned the 8 game win streak, but failed to mention most of those wins came against weaker teams. He mentioned UT’s offensive line—but which top ten defenses have they faced during the streak? The vaunted run game of UT hasn’t done the job against a team with the speed of the Dawgs.

    UT’s defense will have to dominate our offense for them to have a chance.

    Very telling that the 10rc homer had to go back 16 years to point out a similar situation to this year. I would go back one year and point to the rout on their own checkerboard as a better example of what might happen.

    Tennessee will play hard, but I don't think they match up well against the Dawgs. Georgia's defense is strong against the run, which is where they try to make hay on offense. As long as the Dawgs limit turnovers and explosive plays, the Vols are going to have a hard time pulling off an upset here.

    In case nobody looked, he actually picked the Vols 19-17. The other 2 writers picked the Dawgs, 1 by 2 points and the other by 4. If GA wins by that little, with the talent they have, I hate to say it, but UT wins. Not this year, but probably starting next year. It is going to show recruits that they can win more with less. And when Pruitt gets more? They may be dominant. Sorry about being a debbie downer, but Ga just hasn't shown that they can put teams away. Kirby just likes to play it close the the vest and have his defense hold up. Which makes them have to play more and get worn down through the season. I don't care if the defense gives up 17-20 points a game, if it's mostly in the 4th qtr, after they are up by 30 or more. Not like they did against Fla and Aub last year, where they both got within 1 score. And had to hold on to win. Or even Aub this year, 28-10 in plays in the 3rd qtr alone in favor of Aub. I said it before, from Remember The Titans, "Leave No Doubt".

    GO DAWGS!!!!
