As we finish the 3rd week of play and start practices for an SEC match-up this weekend, this Georgia Bulldawg feels confident but uneasy going into the 2nd SEC game of the season.
I love a 3-0 record just as much as the next person, but all three of those games have been a little rocky. All three started terribly. And while the Dawgs have fought back in each game, these SEC teams know us all too well.
Just about any other Georgia fan would say “It’s just Vandy”… but that’s where I get concerned. Does Nick Saban ever say “Oh, it’s just Vandy?” No—no, he doesn’t and Alabama plays every week like it’s for a National Title. Georgia should take notes.
The Dawgs tend to play to the level of their opponent, especially in the first half of the game. And while it may be “just Vandy,” that doesn’t mean the Commodores put up a fight. I still think the Dawgs will come out on top, but the team needs to be looking at this game as a

This is a man whose Alabama team embarrassed a defending national championship Florida team in the 2009 SEC Championship Game, making [...]
Alabama coach Nick Saban says there's plenty of room for improvement even if the issues aren't reflected on the scoreboard.
He'll have a hard time convincing opponents.

Notebook: Despite three consecutive impressive wins, head coach Nick Saban said Monday there are several areas where Alabama needs to improve. He said people respond better when things go bad, but he wants his players to respond "even when things don't go bad."
Quite a few first- and second-year players were able to get playing time in Alabama's 52-0 route of Arkansas last Saturday. But Nick Saban wasn't pleased with the way some of his youngsters prepared--or didn't prepare--for the game.
STANFORD, Calif. –USC did not have their national title hopes dashed in their 21-14 loss to Stanford Saturday night but they definitely had them put on hold.
They now wait for a host of other primarily SEC teams to either take their first knockdown or completely implode.

Alabama coach Nick Saban finds plenty of imperfections even given the top-ranked Crimson Tide's ridiculous scoring margin so far.
Too many penalties, not enough consistency in the passing attack, a couple of reserves not being adequately prepared to play when the game's out of hand. And they've all gotten out of hand.
Nit-picking - or Nick-picking for the perfectionist...
We've all heard the idiomatic expression, "You can't fit a square peg in a round hole". This nugget of wisdom can apply to a variety of situations both sports and non-sports related, but since this is a UT blog, I'll try to fashion it cloaked in Orange & White.
There have been many coaching/team marriages that just never seemed right and henceforth...
