0-2 Against the SEC, but Number 1 in their minds

26/43, 320 yards, 3 TDs, 3 Ints
36 runs, 83 yards, 0 TDs

Those are Taylor Martinez's stats in his two starts against SEC teams. Both of those were in the CapitalOne Bowl.  I get the OMG!1!!!SECD!11!!! fatigue   But that fatigue is rooted in reality.

Georgia, who despite Nebraska's protestations to the contrary, isn't one of the better defenses in the SEC. We are 6th in the conference. True, we do boast one of the better scoring defenses in the conference. And we held Nebraska to below their season average in points (even more so when you consider one of their TDs was a pick 6). We held them to below their season average in rushing offense. We held them to below their season average in passing offense.

So, yeah, I guess we are like a B1.5G team.

Hey, whatever helps the folks in Lincoln get through another off season of having lost to a team with lesser talent from a league that has only won six national championships in a row. When Northwestern's win over Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl is your conference's signature bowl win, talk is all you have.
