The Official aGCb Football Preview (pt. 2): the other guys

August 23, 2008

Dear Clemson and Georgia,

I respectfully think you’re both overrated. It’s not because I so strongly dislike both of you: in fact, I have good friends who cheer for both schools. But, you both have all the makings for disappointing seasons. You have big name skill position guys that make the media, fans, and voters go crazy. For Clemson, it’s Spiller and Davis, Kelly, and Harper. For UGA, it’s Stafford and Moreno. But both schools are going to be shaky on the O-line, and that’s where games are won and lost. Both schools have shown a lack of focus in the offseason with legal problems, and expectations are so high that just one loss (especially for Clemson) is going to be viewed as a dissapointment. Don’t think that won’t have an impact as well.

Let me say this: I think you both will have good years (a year that we Gamecock fans would love to have). But I think that both of your teams are overrated and won’t sniff a national championship. For UGA, the schedule is just too hard and too many people have gotten so excited about the fact that y’all beat UF and Hawaii that they’ve forgotten that this is the same UGA team that lost to South Carolina (at home), almost lost to Vandy, and got pummeled by Tennessee. I don’t see the Bulldogs winning the SEC.

For Clemson, I think you could still win the ACC. There’s probably 2 ACC teams on your schedule that have a chance of beating you: FSU and Wake Forest. But I don’t see the Tigers going to a national championship or finishing in the Top 10.

Again, y’all will probably have good years, but not seasons like the majority of your fans expect. Let the chaos begin… it’s football season!
