Is this really the year of the Dawg?

It sure is looking like it might be. Not only did Georgia’s win over Auburn push us to 5-2 on the year, but it proved to me that they’re the best team in the country.

I understand they’ll be ranked number one because Alabama lost (no, really, they lost) but this is just a formality.

At this moment it’s Georgia’s world and we’re just living in it.

Week seven…

SEC Pick of the Week: No. 20 Florida (-9.5) at LSU, 12:00pm ET on ESPN. 

The Gators are pissed off and that’s not going to be good for anybody. Oh, wait, that’s just Dan Mullen? Ok. Yeah, that’s not going to be good for LSU.

A noon game in Baton Rouge is a heck of a lot better than it could be. Add in the fact that the Tigers are missing half their defense due to injury and you’ve got the makings of a blowout.

But this game is still at Death Valley and LSU won this game last year when they shouldn’t have. Buuuut…

This time it just feels different. The Tigers, what’s left of them anyway, aren’t very good. Coach O is coaching for his job. I just don’t think it will be enough.

Gators win by at least two touchdowns.

Upset alert: No. 13 Ole Miss (-3) at Tennessee, 7:30pm ET on SECN.

The Lane Train returns to Knoxville for the first time since he left the Volunteers for USC after one season as head coach.

It was ugly.

As a Gators fan though, it was hilarious.

The Vols are doing their checker thing in the stands, whatever. Can they keep pace with the Rebels offense? Doubtful.

They’ve dominated their last two opponents (Missouri and South Carolina) but those two are probably the worst two teams in the conference outside of Vanderbilt.

Meanwhile, Ole Miss is coming off a loss to Alabama and a close win against Arkansas. If the fans get to Ole Miss early, the Vols could hang around in this one.

Keep an eye on: No. 11 Kentucky at No. 1 Georgia (-23), 3:30pm ET on CBS.

For as good as the Bulldogs are, they’ve yet to play in a close game outside of their season opener against Clemson. They won that game with a suffocating defense, like they have all season and look to continue that plan against the Wildcats.

I’m almost all-in on the ‘Dawgs to win big, but their due for another close game. Can the Wildcats pull that off? I don’t know. But they have been surprising people all season long.

Trending up: Kirby Smart.

For the first time in the Kirby Smart era the Georgia Bulldogs are ranked number one in the AP poll. In fact, this is their first top-ranking since they began the 2008 season as the No. 1 ranked team.

And that ranking lasted exactly one week. I expect the ranking to last a bit longer this time. Maybe until Halloween?

Trending down: Ed Orgeron.

It seems for the last year and a half that Coach O has occupied this spot. Trust me though, it’s for good reason. He’s about finished.

A loss to the Florida Gators this weekend and he’s done. The party is over. Joe Brady isn’t walking through that door to save him this time.
