Thread: Might hurt more to be a dog fan today

  1. #1

    Default Might hurt more to be a dog fan today

    They have a way better team and a way better record than us (just so that is out of the way) but two dreams died in that flukey game yesterday. Three if you include the kicker's.

    First, UGA is now very unlikely to make the final four, although they could if they win out...a tall order. (Sort of like us becoming bowl eligible maybe...)

    Second, Fromm is very unlikely to get the Heisman Trophy now, after a very poor performance.

    Both of these were realistic dreams at the beginning of the season.

    Meanwhile, us... A wise poster said: let us not forget the schedule. It is probably a more dominant factor than any speculative ones. The schedule can make you look like a genius or a dunce. Fritz, during his first year, had the weakest schedule in the entire FBS, and that plus inheriting a great offensive line made him look really good.

    This year's schedule set us up for failure. That plus an erratic offensive line and several other flukey factors IMHO has left us in bad shape, needing a dramatic comeback from a dismal start if we want to become bowl eligible.

    Either way it might not hurt as much as having realistic top-level dreams dashed all of a sudden.

    When I think about UGA fans' pain:

    It Is Well With My Soul,

    (hopefully, our boy Luke woke up about ten mins ago with a crushing PBR headache, circus monkeys forming a marching band in his forehead, and puke stains all over his fancy red attire. #karma.)

    Yup. Except for CCU, the ones toward the bottom of the list, with the toughest schedules, will have a harder time going bowling.

    Took me a while to figure this out...

    for any others having difficulty

    Remedial FB stats 101

    This is the winning percentage of the teams everyone has played so far
    top of list have played crappier teams while the bottom of the list have played a tougher lineup
    Once poked Chad Lunsford in the eye.

    Why are we comparing UGA and Southern?

    Or, the teams on the bottom are just not that good.

    (Only divine grace prevents us from being a 1 win team right now.)

    Took me a second too. There’s something like 10 undefeated teams left in college football and 3 are on our schedule.

    That doesn’t erase the fact we have played crappy but we do have some tough teams on our schedule. Chance we have 3 opponents finish in the top 25.

    The way this season is going, we may finish in the bottom 10.

    Yeah at first glance, that is misleading. It's the winning percentage of those team's opponents, not the teams on our schedule.

    At any rate, it felt pretty good to see uga fall and Tech get smashed again yesterday. If only coastal could have beaten gast.

    But it was a good day to be an Eagle
