the long slog back up ....

After falling off that #9 cliff last week, the UGA BULLDOGS start their climb back into the end of year conversation. This week it was the mighty FSU's of Tallahassee time to drop off the map, and #2 falls harder than #9.

We really are, this early in the season, in our own drivers seat - keep on winning and they will keep on moving up in the polls. I need to find out when that first play off poll comes out, because there is no set rule that it has to be anything at ll like the two newspaper polls. We are going with the COACHES POLL this week, because we are one place higher! HERE is a link to both.

  2. Ohio State
  3. Clemson
  4. Louisville
  5. Michigan
  6. Stanford
  7. Houston
  8. Michigan State
  9. Washington 
  10. Wisconsin ( ranked too high, had a bit of a time with neophyte Georgia State! )
  13. TEXAS A&M
  14. Florida State ( down from #2 ) 
  15. Baylor
  17. LSU
  19. Miami
  20. Nebraska
  21. OLE MISS
  22. TCU
  23. UTAH
  24. Texas
  25. Iowa
The upstart Louisville Cardinals are number two in the AP poll after the beat down they put on FSU, and Clemson #5 - they meet in two weeks. The other tigers have Ga Tech this THURSDAY night.

The next two weekends will make or break UGA, with us in Oxford this weekend and The Vols coming between the hedges the following weekend. Good news today that game will be SEC on CBS - the best kick off time at all, 3:30. After that it should be ( as I totally curse us ) somewhat smooth sailing till JAX with " rebuilding "South Carolina there, and Vandy " Vandy "Home.

#10 Wisc takes on #8 Michigan State, that should move us up at least one. Alabama , Ohio State and Louisville are having cup cakes for the coming week. #5 Michigan with an unranked Penn State ( who now has the cute as puppies ex Vandy coach )
