All depends on what BMAC can do, also replacing some key contributor on D. The UGA game will be huge just hope we don't continue the shitting the bed trend for big home games.

I’ve seen a few rankings and we are 21-25 in all of them.

I'd rather be unranked. All it does is give Coastal Carolina a reason to want to beat us more, and even if we beat them, then UGA takes us more seriously in the second week since we're ranked too.

Rather earn it by beating UGA, but oh well.

So you want to "earn it" by beating UGA, but don't want to be ranked so that we can pull off a sneak win against Coastal Carolina, without giving Coastal Carolina a reason to beat us more???

Do people even bother reading what they type before they hit the submit button???

I can ask you the same question. I've been trying for 5 minutes to figure out what you're trying to say.

Let me clarify in case you read my post too hastily and overlooked what i really said: if we are ranked coming into the start of the season, it only gives Coastal Carolina more of an incentive to beat us in week 1. Not that I'm really that worried about Coastal Carolina, but the same can be said going into week 2 as a ranked team. Georgia will see it as an opportunity to get a top 25 win and we're gonna get a bunch of unwanted press and publicity that just keeps our team unfocused.

It's better to be unranked until after we play/beat UGA. Otherwise it's just unwanted pressure and hype.

Besides, preseason rankings mean jack shit. All they do is make teams think they're the shit, only to find out they actually suck and were overrated. I could care less if we're ranked #25. It means nothing.

I don't care what our ranking is I just want to win the games. Should've been ranked to end this year but that's big board material for next season make em believe.

Coastal went 3-9 this past season. They had to win their final two games to even get there. I understand that Moglia may be back next season for them - then again he may not. Either way, we're not going to need to sneak onto our own football field next season to beat them. And if we can't beat them, then we won't deserve to be ranked.

My point was, how does "earning a win against UGA" stand up to not wanting "unwanted pressure and hype"? So you want an easy win over a UGA that looks past us, rather than beating them as a ranked team. And that's your idea of "earning" a top 25 ranking.

We're going to play UGA in Williams-Brice next season. It's the first SEC game for both teams. UGA will not look past us regardless of our ranking...
