There is no "SEC BS." These are the SEC teams better than everyone not named Clemson in the ACC: Georgia, Florida, Texas A&M, Alabama, LSU, and most years Auburn. I don't know UGA will beat Clemson (I think they will) but picking the Dawgs is only crazy on TNET.

UGA could only lose to Clemson due to looking ahead to critical SEC schedule. I mean after Clemson, Dawgs have UAB, uSC, Vandy and Arkansas. That's unfair.

is 2-0 against Texam A&M in the most recent home and home series. We are 1-1 against UGA since 2013. Clemson is 2-3 against Alabama since 2016, all of those games were in the CFP, with Clemson's two wins over Bama were CFP title games. The 2019 CFP title game in Santa Clara, Clemson smacked the worst loss in decades against an undefeated Alabama team as Clemson won 44-16. Clemson is 0-1 against LSU in the CFP 2020 title game, that was essentially a home game for LSU.


Georgia has struggled against Alabama, shoot UGA has struggled with SCAR. Clemson hasn't lost to SCAR since 2013.

I don't like using the transitive property. UGA and Bama were both very different teams at the end of the year vs. beginning. That said, I also have a bad feeling. UGA has a phenomenal defensive line and our offensive line was really bad last year (I think they can improve since it takes time to gel, but it's basically the same squad). That's been our MO for most of the past 7 or so years. It also hurts that we lost ETN (I think our RB room is really talented, but they don't have that experience yet). And that's a lot to put on DJ's shoulders. The good news is that I don't buy the JT Daniels hype (especially now that Pickens is out) and UGA has a record of not being able to keep up in shoot outs.

The other good news is that while my predictions are good when it comes to other teams, I suck when it comes to Clemson. I had a good feeling about the game against LSU in 2019 and a bad feeling about Bama in 2018. Those were two huge misfires.

You realize, of course, the better part of the O’line returns with a year of experience and a summer of actual development post COVID vs the previous summer, I’m sure.

That and in the last seven years we have won two NC’s.

I literally said I think they can improve because it takes time to gel and that it was mostly the same squad. That is recognizing they're mostly the same line (just the LT is up for grabs) and that they've had more time to improve. Reading comprehension is good. Sure, two national titles are awesome. But there are basically none of the same players that were on those teams. So also not relevant when analyzing a single game.

Maybe your comprehension needs some tuning. “Gelling” isn’t nor wasn’t the issue with the online. They were pups last year with no depth. That’s the point and why we will look better this year. It’s pretty simple.

The point about the NC’s is we have done far more with less talent which is relevant. Comprehension is key to your point.

The off-season development opportunities in the post-COVID season a good point for the UGA offense as well.

The 2020 season saw a new OC with no spring or intensive summer work to install the new offense. Leading into 2021, the second year in the new system with a returning starter at QB to run the show should show significant improvement in the same way you are expecting the Clemson OL to gel.

Just making sure you stay intellectually honest.

The reclaimed time in the spring and summer of '21 compared to the COVID restricted timeframes of '20 will benefit both teams, and I'd even venture to say it will actually benefit UGA's offense as a whole the most due to still being on a learning curve for a new offensive system.

Your OL was trash last year and you think they are just going to turn things around game one against the best front 7 in college ball? You don't have a run game so the edge rushers will be teeing off all night on the HI kid. Davis, Wyatt & Carter will be pulling double teams all night so Dean & Walker/Tindall will be cleaning house from the LB spots all night!!

Obviously every year is not the same. You do realize I'm not picking a winner in this game. It was just about our gut feeling. The reason I dont love the transitive property is that teams change. I think JT Daniels is overhyped, but he was better than the QB Bama beat. But my analysis was about our O line vs. The D Line. Obviously, the offensive line can get bigger, stronger, more disciplined, and develop better teamwork. I hope they do. But you have to recognize that they were very average last year (every Clemson RB averaged 2-3 yards less than their career average and Lawrence was sacked the most in his career), and they're basically the same unit personnel-wise. UGA meanwhile returns almost their entire front 7, which was top 5. It's silly to say they dont have the advantage at that matchup, based on what we know right now.

As noted, "to the wire" is probably a little of an overstatement, but UGA did lead up until 4 mins left in the 3rd quarter with a former walk-on at QB. That walk on then went on to throw two INTs in a doomed effort to regain the lead.

With a better QB, who knows what happens there.

It has been a story of near misses for a while now.

But just like Clemsoning was a thing until it wasn't, soon that will be the same for UGA.

The surprising thing is that everyone thinks that Ga. offense is so great. They beat Cinncy because Cinncy made some stupid things like a late hit on a play that had the Bearcats first and goal inside the five and a lineman hits someone out of bounds so late the runner was getting back up. Winning by three points is not a landslide win. And Cinncy's offense was not that good. Another thought is when was the last time Clemson lost two games in a row?

I agree on the UGA offense front. They have a big, nasty offensive line, but they get gassed quickly because they're like 30 pounds over idea size. They always have great running backs. Daniels is okay, but UGA has had much better QBs. And UGA doesnt have many receiving threats, putting their hopes on an unproven LSU transfer.

But UGA does have a phenomenal defense. And Clemson's offense always take time to fire on all cylinders. I see a one score game.

So what you're saying is that you don't know jack $hit about UGAs roster, got it. Burton and Blaylock are as good as any receiver you have outside Ross. Jackson, Rosemy-Jacksaint, & Smith (track all-SEC) are all ballers at WR, I can't wait to see your LB and Safes get abused by Washington, Bowers & Fitzpatrick. Gilbert is just icing on the cake.

I'm not evening going to address your dump OL comment.

ESPN’s 3 Billion dollar contract with the SEC, influences everything that comes out of every ESPN’s employees mouth regarding every SEC school.

I think ESPN’s business plan is stupid. ESPN has hitched their wagon to the P5 conference with the lowest population density. MS, LA, AL, AR….these are low population states. ESPN is paying max dollars for a minimum number of eyeballs.

Having a stupid plan that is fiscally squeezing the company also explains the need for a maximum blitz propaganda campaign on ESPN’s part.
