Time for the Hedge Clippers

A.J. Green is back after paying the price for selling one of his invaluable jerseys a while back. I doubt he’ll be too rusty, which means that the best part of the Bulldog team just got better. And since Tennessee’s strength so far this season seems to be pass defense, Saturday’s game, when Georgia QB Aaron Murray decides to put it up in the air, might get quite interesting. Other than that, there’s not too much to look forward to in terms of overall quality. Even the Dooley heritage angle to this event has me bored.

Normally fireworks erupt when Tennessee and Georgia get together. But something tells me this season’s episode of this rivalry that keeps getting better and better will be a bit of a snoozer. I just hope that last week’s tragedy doesn’t affect the Vols’ mental approach to the game. I don’t think it will. In fact, I’m somewhat optimistic that it will help more than it will hurt.

Just not yet, though.

Georgia 31 Tennessee 17

    yes, unfortunately, aj green is back…but,
    despite that, georgia is headed in the wrong
    direction while the vols seem like a confident
    work-in-progress.

    despite the ending last week the vols played
    to their competition and should have won the
    game…

    this week i think they finish the job…

    ut 24 georgia 14

    I think Tennessee will start very strong. But in the second half they will not do as good. But I think they will pull off a 21-17 victory.

  3. Sandy Smart says :

    The Vols build on the experience from last week… Georgia is reeling… Dooley is going home to his Dad…

    It all spells a victory for the Big Orange. Not the way I saw it at the beginning of the season, but this one goes:

    UT 31 – UGA 14

    And the howls for Richt’s head get louder.

    AS CRAZY AS IT SOUNDS GEORGIA HAS MORE RIDING ON THIS GAME THAN THE VOLS. AND VINCE DOOLEYS PROCLAMATION THAT HE WILL BE PULLING FOR THE VOLS GIVES THE BULLDOGS EVEN MORE TO GROWL ABOUT. MY HEART REALLY WANTS TO GO WITH THE VOLS THIS WEEK, BUT MY FOOTBALL KNOWLEDGE (INSERT LAUGHTER HERE) HAS ME MAKING ANOTHER DECISION. UGA 28–SMOKEY 21. AND AN OLD QUOTE MAY COME BACK THIS WEEKEND. ONE I WAS TOLD BY A GEORGIA FAN FEELING REALLY GOOD AFTER HIS TEAM DEFEATED TENNESSEE 44-0 AT SANFORD STADIUM…….”YOU ALL CANT PLAY FOOTBALL BUT YOU SURE AS HELL KNOW HOW TO MAKE WHISKEY!”. REST IN PEACE BOB NEYLAND AND JACK DANIELS. IM OUTTA HERE.

    Since our expectations and energy levels are so low, this is bound to be the best game of the year. If you want to guarantee it, just don’t watch or record it!
    I think the UGA fans are a little depressed this year, similar to the Vols nation situation. And with all the other sports distractons nearby, this is a good time to catch those dogs napping on a sunny day behind their hedges
    Tenn 17 – GA 16
    But you’ll have to read about it to make it happen!

    Well, I’m sitting here in the Reykjavik airport, getting ready to fly back to America, and realizing that this week’s predictions are the first where there is a split. TK and myself predict the ‘Dogs; DW, Sandy, Billy, and Bert are going for the Vols. Let’s hope the latter group are right.

    Just thinking – it must be partly the performance against LSU combined with Georgia’s ‘down season’ that has the optimists putting their money on the Orange. I think using last week’s game as an indicator is tricky – we were thoroughly outplayed except for turnovers. I guess I’m not willing to predict the Vols over anybody yet, sans Memphis, without a better (statistical) performance first.
