NCAA Are the Good Guys

I don’t know why everybody keeps getting so mad at the NCAA. The way I see it, they’re doing what’s right. Let’s recap:

  • Allows the generous Auburn University to donate $250,000 to father of the quarterback in order to fix up his church.
  • Quarterback in North Florida is starving, close to the brink of death, and they allow him to take free shellfish from a local supermarket.
  • A need is seen in downtown Athens: People in the streets, kids in broken families, poverty, litter on the sides of roads. The NCAA can bear it no longer, so they assign 40 hours of serving the community to star Georgia running back.

Seems to me the NCAA not only cares for student athletes, but humanity as a whole.

First College Football Playoff Rankings Announced

Last night, the first ever College Football Playoff rankings were announced, and Georgia came in at number eleven.

Here are the complete rankings:

1 Mississippi State 7-0
2 Florida State 7-0
3 Auburn 6-1
4 Ole Miss 7-1
5 Oregon 7-1
6 Alabama 7-1
7 TCU 6-1
8 Michigan State 7-1
9 Kansas State 6-1
10 Notre Dame 6-1
11 Georgia 6-1
12 Arizona 6-1
13 Baylor 6-1
14 Arizona State 6-1
15 Nebraska 7-1
16 Ohio State 6-1
17 Utah 6-1
18 Oklahoma 5-2
19 LSU 7-2
20 West Virginia 6-2
21 Clemson 6-2
22 UCLA 6-2
23 East Carolina 6-1
24 Duke 6-1
25 Louisville 6-2

Some UGA fans were upset about Georgia’s ranking, but I really don’t have a problem with it. Yes, I think they’re better than #11, but they haven’t played many good opponents at this point in the season, so they don’t necessarily deserve to be ranked ahead of some of the other one-loss teams.  Still, the task is simple for UGA: Win out and win the SEC Championship, they’re in. Lose a game, they’re not.

 

Q & A With Florida Insider

Radi Nabulsi of UGASports.com was able to ask the Florida beat writer some questions about Saturday’s matchup, and he had some pretty interesting things to say.
