When i was at UGA we had the worst coach in modern day history in Ray Goff - we stunk - but guess what we still beat Ohio State 21 to 14 in the Florida Citrus Bowl in 93 but i guess it was an away game for you guys.

Thanks for keeping things entertaining this morning! I respect the Big 10, but is fun to talk smack!

I am not doubting that we can lose a game - we can still win the SEC East (and BCS) as long as we do not lose to Florida. My point is there is a big difference between a loss and a choke job.

SC or ASU is a choke job. Losing to LSU or Florida is acceptable.

Did OSU, in your opinion, choke againt LSU last year?

I like to say that OSU choked agianst both Flordia and LSU but in truth when the two top teams get together to play and one walks away with a loss its not really a choke a job. I do think that they came out real tight agianst florida even with that quick td. i honestly think that OSU and USC have a much easier path to the a BSC game but at the same time it can put them at a disadavange because other than playing each other they do not get to compete agianst big time teams at that level 3 to 4 times a year like the SEC champ does.

As far as UGA and south carolina goes. its a rivalry game. its almost always the first SEC game for each school. I wish we could move that game back on the schedule because SC has the top talent to compete with any other SEC school but they lack depth. so we get to play them when they are healthy every year, but as the season wears on they always lose a big time playmaker or two and end up stinking.

Geogia is a choker, and that's the bottom line.

I hate to tell you, but OSU has a tough road against them this year, as tough as any SEC team. How so? They play #2 in week 3, #12 in week 6, #22 in week 9, #19 in week 12 and #24 in week 13. That's 5 top 25 teams in 13 games. 3 of those games are on the road (USC, Illinois and Wisky, and [Camp Randall is an AWFUL place to play]).

Of course, that's fluid and can and will change, but right now that schedule looks plenty brutal to me.

I am not sure illinois was not a flash in the pan, they got steam rolled by USC. but we will see, i like zook, did he not work with the steelers special team years ago?

I am not saying the OSU schedule is a walk in the park but you only play 3 top 20 teams.

In the past, Zook has proven to be a great recruiter, but not such a great coach. That's why he never really became a big name coach. The talent at Illinois is getting to be really good, but what's their execution going to look like?

5 out of the top 25 and after 4 weeks, the schedule will have completely changed (as far as rankings are concerned.) That's nice of you to exclude the complete Top 25 so that your numbers look better. I am pretty sure that every poll in college football goes with a Top 25 format...you should consider joining the rest of the nation and stick with that format.

Right now, an SEC team losing to another SEC isn't a bad thing in the eyes of the media. It's kind of a free pass for the SEC. Sure they lost to a 6-loss team, but it's a 6-loss SEC team, so they're tougher than their record.

Where's the sarcasm smiley at?
