If you now think Georgia sucks…think again!

After a tough afternoon like the Bulldogs suffered through on Saturday, it is understandable that there would be a temporary wave of negativity. Notice that I used the term, temporary! If it lasts longer than a few days you need a solid smack.

Before the year if I had told you that Georgia would clinch the SEC East Title in October and would be 9-1, you would have taken it and ran. You know it, I know it. The fact that this team is primed for an 11-1 regular season if they finish strong is reason for celebration, not consternation.

Let me remind you about a little history that I tweeted this morning. Only ONE of the last SIX College Football National Championship teams has went through the season unbeaten. That was FSU in 2013. The other 5 this decade have ALL been 11-1. Every one of those teams also lost that game at home, not in a very hostile rivalry game!

I will choose to just focus on the CF Playoff era next. In the 3 years we have had the Committee, the eventual champions have all been 11-1. As previously noted they ALL lost at home and it was ugly!

2016 Champion Clemson lost at home to a lousy Pittsburgh team and gave up 43 points!

2015 Champion Alabama Lost at home to average Ole Miss and also gave up 43 points!

2014 Champion Ohio State Lost to 6-6 VA Tech by a score of 35-21!

See everybody, history indicates that the Auburn loss was ugly and an atrocious showing, but in the grand scheme means very little. Regroup and survive to 11-1 and you have an opportunity to win an SEC Title in the leaky Dome. That is more than anyone expected. Yes, many thought SEC East Champions was a reasonable goal, but few were talking a berth in the CF Playoffs. A 3 game winning streak will do just that!
