Traveling around various UGA boards, trying to find some rational discussion on the Boise State game, I seem to be finding lots of Georgia fans proclaiming that the East is theirs to win, this year. It is, of course, wide open, but I think the majority of here can offer some frank and intelligent reasons for, or against, any team in the East. So, let me start by asking: Why does Georgia feel that this year is their year to win the East, when several have them penciled in as near automatic wins, us, here, included? They open vs Boise State, which should prove to be an interesting game, but I feel Boise puts it on them. Then, their very next game is South Carolina, a strong favorite to win the East this year. There are some out there who say that 0-2 with 0-1 in SEC start doesn't put them out of contention, which is true, but I think, at best, it leaves them in a very deep hole that requires lots of losses by every team in the SEC-E. I also don't find that this year will be the same as last year. Surely the East is down, in comparison to the West, but I don't see it as being as down as it was last year. I think Georgia fans seem to be hoping that a 2 or 3 loss team can win the East, which is the only way I seem them playing in the Dome in December. Thoughts?
