When I interviewed the Colorado Rivals.com guy last week, one of the things he and I talked about offline was what it would take for UGA to lose to CU.
I told him then, and I still believe it to be true today (despite the debacle last week).....
"With the exception of Auburn...every time Georgia laces them up, I expect us to win IF we show up prepared and ready to play. We rarely *lose* football games anymore. We beat ourselves via coming in flat or just stone cold wetting the bed...like when we enter the Jacksonville City limits."
If we come in jacked up and focused, we will destroy Ole Miss. We just have to focus on blocking, tackling, passing and catching. The basics. If we make the plays that our talent level suggests we should make, we win.
Georgia doesn't have to do anything super human to win games with its talent, team work and conditioning.
Auburn is the ONLY team that we play that is just as tough. Just as well coached. Just as deep. Just as talented. And they are the only team that TAKES victory from us without us giving it to them or nutting up.
That's a very good place to be as a program.
