Georgia’s consenus No. 1. So now what?

Earlier this year I told Georgia coach Mark Richt that there was a bright side to his 2008 schedule. He was all ears to hear what the smarty pants media guy had to say about that.
The bright side is this: If Georgia goes 13-0 against what I believe is the toughest schedule in school history, the Bulldogs WILL be in the BCS championship game at Dolphins Stadium on Jan. 8. Remember that Auburn started the 2004 season at No. 17 when it got squeezed out at 12-0.
Now that Georgia is No. 1 in both major polls (AP, Coaches), the Bulldogs know they are a lock for South Florida if they run the table. Frankly, if Georgia is 12-1 with an SEC championship on Dec. 6, it should STILL be in the big game. But that is another discussion for another day.
