    As a dawg fan I’m not a homer. It’s very possible that Tuesday night UGA could be #3. But that’s OK. This weeks game will decide who the best team in the land is in 2022. GO DAWGS!!

    TCU is an interesting case. I don't think they remain unbeaten if they play an elite team outside their conference. They gave up 430 yards yesterday to a 3-4 Mountaineers team. So, we've got another instance of an unbeaten Big 12 team with a weak defense.

    LSU has improved and will face their litmus test against Bama this weekend. Ole Miss won't be in the SEC Championship. They will lose at least one more game.

    I put the Vols #1, OSU #2, GA #3, MI #4.

    Next Saturday is the day #1 will be decided...do not care at all about this week's ranking...except to say that slotting TN #1will give them even more impetus as game day approaches. I believe TN is playing over its head...on sheer momentum. They are good...no doubt....but beatable. The Dawgs will pop the bubble.

    Everyone knows Mike really wanted to put Tennessee #1, but he probably tired of people saying he is a huge Tennessee fan…but deep down he wanted too, which would have been the right thing to do

    Sorry but not everyone knows that. How could anyone know such a thing?

    I'm not always the world's biggest Mike fan. He sometimes ought to proofread his posts before pushing the button. (Shouldn't we all.) However, he is very upfront about what he thinks and how he sees it. He may be tired of people saying he's not a Dawg fan, but our opinions of his opinions and perhaps his biases don't seem to have colored his reporting.

    That said, it makes almost zero difference how anyone's ranked this week. How we play on Saturday will be the deciding factor. We are injured, young, talented, and deep, but can we be disciplined and consistent?

    We learned last season that Stetson, at his best, was better than the other team's Heisman quarterback. Can that Stetson resurface on Saturday? Can we be more physical than Tennessee? Can our tight ends and running backs make Tennessee decide they'd be better off back in Knoxville? Can we control the clock? Can we communicate? Can we stop it with the sloppy play? Can we play football for four quarters?

    Tennessee is beatable, but they are also very good, and they're red hot. Big Mo has a funny way of turning on you though if you lose it. It's our job not just to get the momentum but to keep it.

    Go, Dawgs!

    “…best Kentucky football teams in history…”? Really?

    Before we go all Griff on making Tennessee some kind of behemoth because they beat KY and eked out a win over Bama, let’s remember that this best ever Kentucky team scored only 14 in a home loss to SOUTH CAROLINA.

    The pumpkins needed every one of the 17 accepted penalties, a bone headed muffed punt, and the ugliest game winning field goal in the history of ug!y game winning field goals in order to act like complete idiots after scraping by Bama. I doubt the Dawgs are going to be so accommodating.

    Let Griff and hillbilly nation have their moment in the sun. It’s going to be lights out for them next Saturday!

    Please log on to Tennessee blogs and gush all over their attributes as coach Dooley would have done. "I think you guys are just too good for us to beat", "We don't stand a chance", etc. Make sure they get plenty of that "Rat Poison" prior to Saturday.

    Coaches poll just came out...UGA still #1, OSU 2 and TN 3. Means little until next Saturday.
