Then you go to the Capital One Bowl the next year and you want to be back to the Sugar Bowl. And then you go to Shreveport and Memphis back to back and you just want to be back in Florida…” Here’s a quick statistical snapshot of Michigan State, which looks to be as accomplished defensively as Georgia, perhaps not as solid offensively but slightly better on special teams (not that that’s a high bar to cross, it seems).

The worst hype video ever, Georgia Bulldogs style

No. 1 LSU Tigers withstood a  10-0 first quarter deficit to just b**** slap No. 14 Georgia 42-10 in the Georgia Dome Saturday. So now that the BCS Debate is over who will LSU play….who cares.
