The last time North Carolina beat The Georgia Bulldogs was 1963 and we fired the coach and hired Vince Dooley right afterwards. Vince was undefeated against North Carolina. All-Time UGA has the advantage 15-6-2. In fact Georgia has won 9 of the last 10 games against North Carolina.
North Carolina just does not have the talent to hang with us.
The best North Carolina has been recruiting is to barely crack the Top 25 at # 24 both the latest 2 years of Scout.com Recruiting Rankings.
That is not going to cut it against Kirby who trots-out an average recruiting ranking these latest 5 years who with redshirt would be playing of # 9.
# 9 vs # 30.
Who wins ?
The Georgia Bulldogs put up 34 pts. and win.
And The SEC will improve to 9-2 in Chick-fil-A Kick-Off Classic while we get our 1st win and bring home the Old Leather Helmet.
The ACC will drop to 1-7 in the game and North Carolina will still be looking to win their first in the Season’s Premier Season’s Kick-Off Classic College Football Game every year for 9 years now. There were 2 years 2012 and 2014 when there were two (2) Chick-fil-A Kick-Off Classic Games. There is one game this season. We’re it.
The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic Game requires the winning team to score 26 pts. or more as we all saw firsthand 2011 when I wasted my monies on a Bust Boise Jersey losing 21-35.
The winner for 8 years has won the Old Leather Helmet presented on-field after the game. Alabama has won 4 times. LSU Ole Miss vols and Auburn have each won once. SEC is 8-2. The ACC is 1-6.
North Carolina is looking for its first win too. But of all The SEC teams in the Classic so far to start the seasons only Georgia has never won.
We aren’t getting to 26 without Jacob Eason and honestly almost all the winning scores have been 34 or 35 which Greyson Lambert has NO HOPE OF. Each team gets $ 2 million dollars.
North Carolina has avg the # 30 Scout.com recruiting ranking the latest 5 rankings who with redshirt make-up this team and UGA avg # 9. We go into North Carolina and sign their best players EVERY YEAR. The last 2 years North Carolina has had two 4-Star recruits each year as their highest-rated while UGA has had fifteen each of the last 2 years who are 4-Star or 5-Star players.
On paper this is no contest. I am predicting Kirby scores 34 to win.
Odds Shark.com still has the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Tar Heels winning by a point and a half now so this would be an upset for Kirby.
