ATHENS — Georgia may very well deserve its No. 1 ranking, but these Bulldogs — and their quarterback — have plenty left to prove.

    If our players need rival fans and the media to get motivated at this point we are in big trouble

    Recall that last season, there was a similar defining four game stretch (UF, UT, @MSU, @UK). When comparing that stretch to this year, we've got a hot Mizzou team coming to Athens - not quite the same situation as the vols were in 2022 and the media circus that was, but it will be just as challenging, and I'd say the games vs UM and at Knoxville will be tougher than the MSU/UK games were.

    The Dawgs 3rd down defense is great, but it makes you wonder what is happening on the other downs, especially in the red zone. So while the Dawgs may struggle to stop these upcoming teams from getting their yards between the 20s , especially UM/Mizzou, they absolutely need to stiffen up in the red zone. For as much attention is being paid to Bowers missing, I'm hoping for improved tackling and communication in the secondary, and for at least "some" pressure from the DL. We will need more complementary football with the run game picking up some slack, and having a healthy Milton would be a huge boost in that regard.

    In any case, the season has become focused on a few games, and this is where CKS is at his best, so I have no doubt the team will be giving it their all. Go Dawgs!!

    I really don't get these "prove it" articles. We have not lost a game since late 2021 so Florida, Ole Miss, Mizzou, and Tennessee need to prove who they are. With the mantra "Better Never Rests", it does not sound like they feel the need to prove anything other than '21-'22 is in the past and these Dawgs are still huntin'!!!

    Off topic but wonder how this might play out....

    TCU reportedly had knowledge of Michigan's alleged sign-stealing antics when the two teams met in the 2022 College Football Playoff semifinal at the Fiesta Bowl, Yahoo Sports reports. According to the report, the Horned Frogs staff used "dummy signals" in the team's stunning 51-45 upset win over the Wolverines after they were tipped off to suspicious activity from the Michigan coaching staff. As you might recall, TCU never trailed in the contest, building a 21-3 lead in the first half before hanging on for the six-point victory in one of the more surprising results a CFP game has ever seen.

    Kirby about to go bully-ball for a month. Awesome having a coach who hates rival teams more than us fans ain’t it?
