    My apologies, but they already have an ass-whipping reservation in Jacksonville this year. I hope that are undefeated. That worked real well in 2002. An undefeated Mutt squad was beaten by the reptiles, leaving a clear path for someone, can't remember who, to meet Miami.

    I've asked this on another board....I might as well ask it here. If "the Trojans are the most talented team in the nation", and they're going to kick our ass this year (because we always get our asses kicked when we play somebody good), why aren't they ranked higher?

    I seriously want to know. If you think a team is the most talented, how do you put them at #3?

    Hard to be wrong if you're preaching two different things. If OSU does well, he can say "I told you they were great" and if USC does well he can say "I told you they were the most talented team in the country."

    It's a bunch of bull[Mark May], really. These polls would be less garbage if there were no commentaries with them. Then we'd know all we actually need to know about what they think.
  4. Full disclosure: I think Dienhart is full of [Mark May] when he says "most talented team". He's keeping his options open later to look smart regardless of the outcome of the game.

    That being said, it is very possible to be the most talented something and not be the best. Think of somebody like Bobby Fischer; he was enormously talented - possibly the most talented player of his generation. He wasn't necessarily the best chess player, though, for a variety of other reasons (namely, he was crazy). Just saying it's possible, that's all.

    USC is more talented than the team that is going to seriously challenge the all-time 7 round NFL draft record for most 1st rounders and overall selections?

    Oh, and Auburn at #9? Seems awfully high to me.

    Although he may be an inbred, leg-humping, flea-ridden assbag, I'm not sure he deserves the full BP-treatment yet. He didn't come here looking for trouble.

    I propose that we limit said all-out assaults for those who have initiated it by bringing their idiotic trash-talk here.

    I live in Gainesville and most people here seem pretty confident about that game...

    In general though you guys have won because Georgia has shown up with way less emotion, and obviously Richt's whole celebration deal fixed that...

    Personally I will be rooting for the Gators HARD because I want to meet you guys in the national championship game (for obvious reasons). So here's my question:
    Which Georgia team do you think will show up to that game? The one that showed up last year, or the one that has shown up every other year you guys have played?

    Oh, and who gets the bye week the week before?

    I am biased. I hate the very air they breathe, because the air allows them to live. Regarding which team, hope the former shows up, so we can beat their best. Without looking it up, I think neither of us have a bye, but I think that the Mutts will come limping back to Athens from a game with the Corn Dogs at Red Stick the Saturday before the WLOCP.

    Look at that, the Spooners at #4. No backlash for their continual postseason flubs. Fuck, I hate Oklahoma.

    15 minutes of "research" netted me his address, names of father, mother, siblings, and where he works. I was so ready to pull the trigger :(

    Add to that our lack of Southern speed. Oh, woe is us, woe is us. And we don't even have an ethically-challenged coach. Oh, woe is us. Woe is us!

    We're just not worthy! Thank you, Dennis! Oh, thank you!


    What a loser! Personally, I stopped reading anything Dennis Dodd wrote a long time ago. The sad thing is that he gives Ohio State his #1 nod and lots of Buckeye fans will think he is "coming around".

    In truth, I can't understand what anyone would see in the facile columns he posts or his opinion of teams. Check out his previous predictions. I especially like the way that he and his cohorts now rank teams conditionally, such as "after Spring football", like we won't realize just how badly their rankings pan out as the year progresses.

    So, let me go out on a ledge with a prediction of my own. Ohio State at #1 is a no-brainer. The Big Ten will recover somewhat this year. Oh, and Dennis Dodd will continue to be a loser. Write me down for those.

    Uh, are we beginning to wear off on you a bit there, Gator?
