    You were close. I've seen Vegas lines from 8.5 to 7.5 so far. And your assessment is spot on. I'm not worried about winning as long as we come ready to play. And I'm sure we will. The TAMU game woke us up out of our bored stupor. We'll handle UGA and throttle ND.

    You know why they don't scare me? The sidelines...

    Nick Saban is still our Coach, and Mark Richt is still theirs... He's screwed up Georgia teams with much more talent than this...

    Georgia doesn't match up with us well at all in my opinion.

    One, they are very undisciplined and make way too many mental errors and get way too many dumb penalties. How they won the Florida game still escapes me because they really kinda played like crap. Florida just happened to have played a bit worse.

    Other than that they've played one good team in USC and got their butts handed to them.

    Their defensive line is good but it's nowhere near as good as the offensive line(ours) they'll be going up against.

    Their linebackers are very good and their secondary is good but they haven't faced any offense this season that even remotely compares to ours, and I mean not even close. We're averaging 40 a game folks. Who have they played that comes close to that?

    Are they the best team we've played? No way. If they went into Baton Rouge on a Saturday night they'd get kicked back to Athens with a tail beating of about 38-3 on their hands and their tails between their legs.

    Finally we have a Senior Class that has the experience of what it takes to win championships both SEC and National. This isn't strange territory to our guys. For Georgia it is. And we have a coach named Saban who I'll take over Mark Richt in a key game any day of the week.

    I'm really kind of amazed. A few weeks ago we could supposedly beat NFL teams. We have one bad quarter and lose one game and suddenly everybody's scared to death of Georgia who's not even in our league.

    We'll win this game by at least 17 points and probably worse. As far as the point spread I'll surprised if we're not favored by at least ten.

    Vegas will have more confidence in us than a lot of folks around here suddenly seem to have.

    My two cents....they seem to be a pretty solid team who matches up pretty well against us. If Murray has time to throw and gets in a rhythm I see a long night for Bama.

    I especially worry about our secondary and pass rush against UGA.
    Good post. The concerns mentioned are the same as mine.

    Re: How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    From reading the 7 pages of this thread, I can see that UGA hasn't faced a defense or offense like Bama, and Bama hasn't faced a defense or offense like UGA.

    My biggest concerns are the things we continue see that almost got us beat in the LSU game and did get us beat in the aTm game. If we can keep Georgia from attacking those concerns then I think we'll blow them out. Because I don't think we're going to magically "fix" much at this point in the season.

    Re: How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    The only matchup I don't like is our secondary against UGA WR's. I feel good about both line matchups. I think we'll see more of Pagan on passing downs to help our rush. If we can pressure Murray he'll give us a couple of easy picks. We can pound the ball on them. I expect them to cover the deep ball at the expense of the shorter passes, which we'll take along with the run until they creep up. OTOH, if they come out with 8 in the box then we go long to loosen them up. I'd be surprised if they did that after what we've shown on our long ball the last few weeks.

    Re: How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    Then the question is "how do we keep them from exploiting the weaknesses too late to fix" right? My best guess is that we try to put up a bunch of points early in the game to get them chasing after points like the 2008 game. The trouble is that I think that is what we were trying to do in the LSU and TAMU game and it led to a lot of short possessions and 3 and outs. This offensive identity in 2012 looks for explosive plays in the passing game whereas we tend to look for big running plays in past years. I don't think that will change either at this point.

    So we need to see some big passes connect early...and put touchdowns on the board.

    Re: How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    I would love us to use the hurry up offense to get into and stay in rhythm. Many times we take so long in between plays I wonder if our guys can't get into a good flow of the game.

    I remember listening to the radio pregame show for the Capitol One bowl. Julio was interviewed and asked about the offense going hurry up against Auburn in the first half. He said the players love it because that is what they do in practice.

    Does seem like Bama does better in the hurry up.

    Re: How Do We Match Up Against UGA?

    If I were a Georgia fan, I'd be nervous that UGA almost got beaten by two awful teams and was blown out by one decent team. If they didn't have the UF win, they would have nothing really to hang their hat on. UF struggled against some bad teams, as well.
