I was more worried about LSU and Texas A&M than I am about this game. I just don't see us losing. Georgia has done nothing all year that makes me go, "Wow, they are the real deal".

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they donít have to worry about the answers.

I'd also say that LSU and A&M had better receivers than Georgia too.
Either would've beaten the tar out of UGA.
I was a little concerned about this game until I started reading all the reasons (like the OP article) why we'll lose.
That's convinced me that we're going to win!
The only area of concern I have is that our secondary has given up the mid-range pass on 3rd-down too often.
Aside from that, I think every other category breaks our way.
I don't think this will be quite the 31-0 first half we saw in the black-out game, but it wouldn't surprise me to see us up 21-10 at the half and really wear them down in the second, winning 35-17, give or take.
And that may contradict what I wrote earlier this week, but the more I study UGA, the less impressed I am with them.
OK, somebody may have mentioned this but:
Turnovers: 12 (3 in the aTm game, 2 in LSU)
Turnovers Gained: 27
TO Margin: +15
Turnovers Gained: 24 (6 in Florida game)
TO Margin: +8
Four of Georgia's turnovers meant nothing, coming in the FAU game. Our turnovers in the Michigan, Tennessee, and Auburn games were meaningless as well. In fact, four of our 12 turnovers - fully ONE-THIRD - are on the SECOND STRING. So we do not "really" have the turnover problem that Gary Danielson talks about. We had 13 turnovers in 2009 in games when the starters usually played the ENTIRE game.
And I think that's what it comes down to - Georgia got 1/4 of its entire season turnovers in ONE GAME against a mediocre offense.
Thus - hold onto the ball and we win. I DO think it's THAT simple.
